Speaking at a rally for and attended by Democrat Senate candidate Rep. Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, heartthrob actor Kendrick Sampson, a Houston native, made several anti-white comments in front of the audience of African-American students at Texas Southern University on Tuesday. One of Sampson’s’ racist slurs was reported by NBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald:
“Actor Kendrick Sampson, opening for Beto O’Rourke at TSU, encouraging young Af-Am students to turn out: “Don’t let these old white people decide our lives for us.””

A video clip by attendee Ashley Beckett shows Sampson on stage asking the gathering of black students if they would let a white person pick out their shoes for them as the set-up for an anti-white screed.

Sampson is campaigning on behalf of Irish-American Robert Francis O’Rourke, 46, who is marketing himself with a Hispanic nickname, Beto.
O’Rourke is running against a Cuban-American with a real Hispanic name, Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, 47.
There are no reports of O’Rourke denouncing or commenting on Sampson’s racist remarks.
