Twitter Is Not Happy With This Interview Between Master P And Tomi Lahren
Tomi Lahren recently sat down with Master P for a conversation on Colin Kaepernick and the take a knee protests that began with the NFL and has since occurred in other sports, as well as the problem of police brutality against minorities throughout the country.
“I think what Kap is doing, he expressed his opinion,” P said. “…The only way that what they believe is really gonna change is through ownership…this is the land of free expression, freedom of speech, I don’t get offended either way. I can respect that he truly believe in himself and he lost his job for he believes in. He should still be in the NFL right now.”
From there Lahren then voices her displeasure with how NFL players and activists are protesting police violence against minorities, and asks the No Limit Records founder if he is teaching his son to be “fearful” of police officers.
“There are good police and bad police,” he responded. “There’s good people, there’s bad people. These are just people in uniform. I don’t get caught up with the police, even if some of them are overdoing it. Maybe they had a bad day. I say, ya know what, I put my trust in God and I just gotta do what’s right.”
The conversation has not been received well on Twitter, with many wondering why P would agree to an interview with Lahren in the first place.
What reason could Master P have for interviewing someone that has made it EXPLICITLY clear she doesn’t value YOUR existence as a black man https://t.co/WR1iWH8PB8

The conversation presents itself under the guise of a calm and constructive dialogue between people with differing views. But there’s something to be said about the fact that Lahren has consistently come for Kaepernick and generalized and distorted the intent of his protest, claiming that she never knew what it was about during her time with TheBlaze when the former NFL athlete has been very clear about his intent since the very beginning. Even now during her chat with P she continues to criticize the protest, referring to it as the wrong way of protesting, but never offering an alternative.
Anyways, let’s hope that the next black person Lahren invites on her show holds her to task.
