MSNBC host Touré apologized Friday for his use of the n-word the day before, saying he could have made his point without it and that he "muddied the discussion."

"On yesterday's show in a discussion about the presidential race, I used a word to make a point. In retrospect, I muddied the discussion by using the n-word," he said at the beginning of "The Cycle." "I could've made my point without that word. I shouldn't have used it, and for that I'm sorry."

Touré is one of the show's four co-hosts, including TheBlaze's S.E. Cupp. On Thursday, he accused Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of "trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man": President Barack Obama.

“I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is 'ni--erization,'" he said.
