Former NFL player Ryan Clark gave an emotional speech about being a Black father in America and broke down in tears discussing his son’s recent experience with racism.
Clark’s son Jordan, along with two Arizona State football teammates, claim they were called the N-word by a Whataburger customer this week.
Clark spoke about the incident with ESPN's "Get Up" on Friday morning (June 19) and said he was thankful his son is still alive.

"I'm playing out a scenario of if this woman would've had a weapon and she could easily say that these 3 young Black men were threatening her ... I believe that if that woman pulls a gun on those young men and that woman pulls the trigger, I believe that she's never punished," Clark says.
"We are reinforcing training with our employee on how this incident was handled and apologized to the players and their families for this terrible experience," the restaurant said in a statement.
