MSNBC’s Johnson Sees Toys R Us ‘White Supremacy,’ GOP ‘Ku Klux Versus the Klan’

‘The news that Toys R Us will likely be closing some stories and may go out of business is actually a good thing for black America and black kids in general’

MSNBC Johnson Sees Toys R Us 'White Supremacy,' GOP 'Ku Klux Versus the Klan' (NewsBusters)

In recent days, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson has again been going off the rails with hyperbolic accusations of racism. Not only did he oddly accuse Toys R Us of promoting "white supremacy," but he even made a crack about Republicans and the KKK as he described the Alabama GOP Senate primary contest as "the Ku Klux versus the Klan."

It all began on Tuesday when Johnson -- politics editor for The Root -- posted an article titled, "The Toys R Us Bankruptcy Filing is Probably Good News for Black Kids," in which he rejoiced over the financial problems of Toys R Us and claimed that the toy chain had promoted "white supremacy" by only offering white dolls in its stores. Johnson opines:

The news that Toys R Us will likely be closing some stories and may go out of business is actually a good thing for black America and black kids in general. Toys R Us, for all its nostalgic glitter, has been a horrific bombardment of white supremacy and exclusion for black children, and the sooner folks take their shopping online and to other outlets, the better off and healthier we'll all be.
