Tom Brokaw Said What ?!? [View all]

I must admit, I have not watched Meet The Press in a long time. However, I must have really missed an interesting episode. Tom Brokaw said that Latinos need to "assimilate"!?!



I'm not sure of Tom was trying to express the concerns of white people (not all, please don't come for me) as he sees them or just himself. Good on Yamiche Alcindor for checking Mr. Brokaw at the end of the segment.





Oh my goodness! So much to unpack.
