I just listened to one of the most disgusting rants I have ever heard on TV.
It came from the mouth of Elie Mystal, one of the ignorant talking heads on MSNBC.
He made Walker sound like a servant to the GOP.
To be clear, if a white commentator were responsible for the rant you are about to hear, he would have been fired…
"Herschel Walker will do what he's told and that's what Republicans want from their negroes."
MSNBC is truly having a normal one. pic.twitter.com/e1Sx1qMAg0

While I think Walker is a weak candidate, I also think he merely needs to learn the political game to get better.
To say this man is not thinking for himself, well, that is just flat-out insulting.
Walker, to his credit, took the high road and responded…
My response to @MSNBC and the man who called me the N word. @ReverendWarnock and the left wing crazies believe America is a fundamentally bad country full of racist people. But you and I know this is a great country, full of good people. #gasen pic.twitter.com/JCDsQr19Jh

Mystal then responded to Walker, downplaying using the word “negro.”
However, I would counter by saying that in the context he used it, it was just as insulting, if not more, than the “other” n-word…
I of course did not call @HerschelWalker "the N word."
But, once again, you see the play here. He's trying to appeal to conservative whites who believe "all black people use the n-word, why can't I?" He's trying to validate their racial hangups, and play a vicitm. https://t.co/V5P3wVtnqq

The shame Mystal tried to put on Walker is for the exact opposite of what he claims.
Walker has his own beliefs, so Mystal called him what equates to an Uncle Tom.
MSNBC owes that man an apology.
