I just watched the NFL NETWORK story behind what he's saying. That puts it in context. The white guy with his name did all the great research and told L.T. all the great things L.T.'s grandfather and other decendants did. L.T.'s descendants were outstanding people who even owned land and were community leaders.The white guy named Chris Tomlinson who did the research lived much of his life in Africa because of his job. He apologized to L.T. for what his family did to L.T.'s family.Chris' family did not want Chris to do do all that research. They wanted to keep it quiet. His grandfather was a Klansman.
Y’all are so ignorant calling LT and uncle tom (and I bet most of you don’t even know who uncle tom is). This speech was about forgiveness and pride. He is proud to hold the same last name that his slave owner had because he is everything that the slave owner over a hundred years ago fought to supress. A black powerful, educated and wealthy American man. A similar thing happened between Jews and Germans after the holocaust with forgiving the Germans for the atrocities they did. The problem with America today is that a very small portion of whites continue to be racist and to AA they assume all whites are racist and slave owners which is obviously not the case. Even if AA receive reparations, I fear that the AA community will never truly forgive whites which is a shame because and overwhelming amount of whites in America have zero ties to slavery. My ancestors experienced genocide and we are considered “white” how is it fair to make all white people feel guilty for something they didn’t do and stereotype us.
I’m pretty intrigued at the ppl’s comments. I see their side and tbh I didn’t even think ppl would react that way before reading the comments. But I completely see why they feel that way
This is so embarrassing what he said. There is NOTHING proud of that Slave Owners surname to boast about. I can’t even!
Lost all my respect fucking idiot
what and idiot why did he speak?
No LT, #CRINGING
White ppl was thinking “ oh no, here comes the race card”
The ULTIMATE FAIL.....
What in the HELL is an American Indian, sir? 2:44
Yeap thank you white man for enslavement.
You represent what America 😂😂😂
Very emotional title, no emotion shown
That's why I stopped playing football gotta be a certain type to play.
This is for Emerald Sr, you want to disrespect L.T. and call him a traitor to his race. You will never be half the man he is! He is sending out a message to everyone saying no matter how we came to America anyone can overcome there circumstances and become a success. He is pointing out that the plantation his grandfather lived on is no longer recognized as the slave owner's property but just one name tomilson, people don't see it black or white. he's proud of that fact and it's called change! L.T. wants to see the world moved forward and change for the better and not dwell on the past, but also never forget what happened. Just in case you forgot remember. The slaves were "sold" more or less legally by their (black) owners. Scholars estimate that about 12,000,000 Africans were sold by Africans to Europeans (most of them before 1776, when the USA wasn't yet born) and 17,000,000 were sold to Arabs. But you want to break down L.T. for trying to send a positive message.
This speech makes me sick. Disgusting. I like Malcolm's response... I REJECT my slave name. That is respectable.This man wants and loves his slave name? Get outta here. LT is an idiot. That's my opinion...
Fuck this clown and all who support this.
