Famous self-help coach Tony Robbins was filmed repeatedly using racial slurs during a presentation in the 1980s, which was recently unearthed by Buzzfeed News. During the video, Robbins was explaining an “intense” interaction with a “militant black” audience during an event, where he spoke about taking offense to racial matters.
He stated, “As long as someone calls you a n***er and gets that kind of response I’ve seen right now, where you’re ready to explode, and what you’ve done is given that person absolute control of you. You have no control in your life. You are still a slave.” Robbins later instructed the audience to “just do what I do just for a minute if you really want to be free and if you want to have some fun. He then started singing, “I’m a n***er, you’re a n***er, be a n***er too.”
