This is John “Tommy” Bryant. A Republican City Councilman in Tarrant, Alabama who thought it was ok to call a Black woman a “house nigger” during a city council meeting. And it was all caught on video.
Before his disgusting outburst, Bryant was being questioned about his wife’s controversial social media posts where she allegedly uses the n-word. Bryant stands up and says, “The n-word. The n-word. Let’s get to the n-word. Hey. Do we have a house nigger in here? Do we? Hey. Would she please stand up?” while pointing to Black Councilwoman Veronica Freeman.
Bryant says that he was just repeating what Mayor Wayman Newton, the city’s 1st Black mayor, called Freeman. When asked about his nasty comments, Bryant said, “He said it in a derogatory manner, I said it so people would know what the mayor said.”
While the Alabama Democratic Party is calling for Bryant’s resignation, he says that he intends on running for Mayor. Check out the video below. WARNING STRONG LANGUAGE
