    So..A supreme court justice, one with a lifetime appointment and conceivably one of the 9 most powerful people in the world...a man that never again has to apply for a single job or has to 'please' anyone in your mind should knock his uppity **** off and get back to acting black.

    Beautiful.

    So "white men" act in a specific way that you can generalize and stereotype? There is some universal means of "honoring his own people" that is somehow mandatory for all blacks to do by basis of their race? Your statement would look just as foolish if you were stating "If a black man acts like a black man and does what his people do, he is considered a nigger---so, like I said...if it quacks liek a duck, it is a duck".

    It's a term used in a derogatory fashion hinged primarily around the concept of the individuals race and largely founded upon broad racial stereotypes.

    There was a time where there was a call for people to be judged NOT by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Suggesting someone is an "uncle tom" is judging them the content of their character BASED upon the color of their skin.

    But then the attempt to throw the "outraged" race card would be so much less impactful, come on now

    What is sad is that if he had just been outraged at the comment itself, which was pretty ****ing vile, he would have been in the right. If you don't overreach, you can make much more effective points.

    That's been my general feeling and stance in terms of issues of race for quite some time...sadly, those that see it as a wonderful tool to bludgeon the opposition with and NOT as something they actually truly give two ****s about have no desire in anything other than scorched earth politics. Thus you get all libbos think clearence thomas is an uncle tom and all Cons hate Obama cause he's black.

    Then, exhibit his shear stupidity,
    It was one "libbo". If one person in a group says something racist and that makes the entire group racist, then every group with more than 100 people is racist.

    The majority of the liberals in this thread aren't forgiving the ok or saying that it's ok. And I haven't seen anyone say it's ok because he didn't know. I've only seen one person say it's ok because it's actually not racist, not because "he didn't know". Your over generalization misses the mark.

    Paua Dean campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008, even donating to his campaign. Yea, her employer doesn't like what she said. So they fired her. Are you saying that her employer shouldn't be allowed to fire her? If the people that voted the guy in want him gone then they should vote him out or recall him. In general I'm not fond of asking people that don't directly represent me in government to resign, as in congressmen from other areas, but if his constituents really want him gone then he should even resign. But still, this has nothing to do with Paula Dean and a private company.

    Media bias? What planet do you live on? It's a congressman than I've never even heard of and if I google "uncle thomas" I'm getting all kinds of sources reporting on it. Considering that the guy only put "uncle thomas" and not something much more hateful like the n-word, it's getting plenty of coverage. You're probably whining about media bias without even checking who's reported on it yet.

    Then you should quit writing posts that resemble the rantings of a mad man.

    Every side wants to give more slack to someone who agrees with their politics. That's just a fact of life. It's not a progressive or conservative thing.

    He says while ranting about how terrible progressives are, lol. You must be a progressive because you seem really good at hating, lol.

    You're welcome. It shows that conservatives will do anything to divert attention from their own racist policies, including criticizing criticism of racism as racist. Bizarre.

    Ah, the plantation meme -- racism within racism pretending to criticize racism by using racist history.

    That's what conservatives do!
