[WATCH] Actor Danny Glover tells students 2nd Amendmentwas created to protect slavery
The Constitution's Second Amendment was created to bolster slavery andcapture land from Native Americans, award winning actor Danny Glover told agroup of students at a Texas A&M sponsored event on Thursday.
I don
t know if you know thegenesis of the right to beararms,
he said.
The SecondAmendment comes from theright to protect themselvesfrom slave revolts, and fromuprisings by Native Americans.
 
A revolt from people who werestolen from their land or revoltfrom people whose land wasstolen from, that
s what thegenesis of the secondamendment is,
he continued.Glover, best known for roles in the
Lethal Weapon
franchise and
Angels inthe Outfield,
was addressing students at an event being held in honor of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.Director of Texas A&M
s Memorial Student Center, Luke Altendorf, toldCampus Reform on Friday that the university was unaware of Glover
talkingpoints prior to his speech.
I had no idea, we really didn
t know that topic was coming up,
he toldCampus Reform.
Someone was asking a question about activism, I thinkthat
s where some of that came from.
 Altendorf declined to say if, or how much the school had paid for Glover
sspeech, but said student fees were not used.

 In the past, however, the university paid Angela Davis and Harry Belafonte$25,000 for their speeches at the same event.Altendorf also defended the school
s decision to host those controversialspeakers with university resources.
We didn
t feel those speakers you are referring to are bad decisions on thesetopics because we want to foster discussion,
he said.

Texas Aggie Conservatives (TAC)
. That group has also createdan
online petition
blasting Texas A&M for its speaker selections.Eric Schroeder, chairman of the conservative group, called the event
outrageous.
 
It should be a time for real reflection and respect,
he said referring to thememorial breakfast for King.
Instead, the university pushes a politicalagenda.
 Schroeder also called on university President Bowen Loftin to make up for theevent by inviting a conservative speaker of equal star power.
We expect President Loftin to stand by his commitment to diversity and fullysupport our efforts to bring in a conservative speaker to provide an alternativeto Mr. Glover
