Toure & Race-Baiting "Journalism"

As most of you may have seen last night, Piers Morgan and MSNBC's race baiting puppet Toure got into a rather heated argument in regards to the Trayvon Martin case on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight". Piers had invited Toure on his show due to Toure's harsh criticism of Piers for inviting Robert Zimmerman (George Zimmerman's brother) on his show to express his thoughts and opinions on the issue (in other words, Piers being a fair journalist). Once on the show, it took no more than 60 seconds for Toure to tear into Piers for showing fair journalism (something foreign to MSNBC) and showcasing the other viewpoint of the Trayvon case.
Toure quickly began to insult Piers by stating that himself and others at NBC were "laughing at him" for allowing Robert on his show (which Piers quickly fact checked by reminding Toure that Brian Williams was attempting to get an interview with him). This went on for quite a while, but what was said by Toure about half way through the quarrel really pushed my buttons.
Toure began to imply that because Piers is from England and happens to be born English, he couldn't possibly understand America and its "race problem" and the "troubles that have been going on for centuries". Piers and I disagree politically, but my God, this man doesn't have half the brain cells that Piers possesses. As long as a foreigner looks at an issue with an open mind, they can surely "understand America".
Toure: the only race problems today are caused by imbeciles like you, Spike Lee, and Al Sharpton who at the very inkling of the possibility of racism will pounce and scream "RACIST! RACIST!" before the truth is divulged. You hurt America and sometimes even put others in danger when you do this. You attempt to create truth, you don't look for it.
This brings me to my main point. All of this race baiting and hatred needs to cease. The American public needs to stop with this "KILL ZIMMERMAN" nonsense. We need to sit back and let the judicial system do its job. Screaming "RACIST" is not going to solve any problem, nor will it bring anyone to justice. The media needs to back off as well, and be honest with their reporting. Of course, this will never happen, but we can dream.
Piers handled this atrocity of a "journalist" with class and composure. I commend him for this, because if I were in his position, I probably would have ended up screaming at this dolt.

America needs to sit back, relax, and wait for the verdict.
