Toure: Will Republicans Accept Herman Cain Harassing A White Woman?

MSNBC's Toure (one-word) analyzes the latest development in the Herman Cain saga in which a woman, accompanied by attorney Gloria Allred, accused the presidential hopeful of sexually harassing her in the 1990s.

Toure says it will be interesting to see how Republicans, who aren't backing away from Cain despite numerous allegations of sexual harassment, react to this latest charge coming from a … white woman. Once again calling Cain the Republicans' "new black friend," Toure explains how "black sexuality" or, rather, "predatory black sexuality" scares white America, or something. Transcript:

Martin Bashir, host: "Toure, you were just nodding your head agreeing with Karen? What, on the ethnicity of the accuser?"

Toure: "Yes, absolutely. Charles Blow was talking about this the other day. What sort of comb, he says, does these women use? We're going to see how open the GOP is to this black -- their 'new black friend' when they find out he is harassing blonde women as opposed to black women. That sort of thing of black sexuality -- predatory black sexuality. Very frightening in this country, still. Very threatening. So we'll see how that plays out. "
