The video has been removed. Did you download to your computer by any chance? I've been looking, but haven't found it so far.

OK, I found similar and posted it.

Hmmm . . . it looks like the only clip they deleted. I don't know why they would. I watched the show last night and it appears (though no solid proof), that his free black ancestor simply owned his own parents as "slaves" to prevent them from being sold out of, or made to leave, Virginia. To me, that's quite noble. As Mr. Underwood noted, "you take care of your own."
