    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    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.
    Of course it is.....It is meant to be derogatory...but if the shoe fits---just saying....

    That "is" a racist comment.......Uncle Tom represents something--it represents betrayal--it represents kissing ass for personal benefit.... Don't make more or less what it is.....

    Why the obsession with Anitidae Family of waterfowl ?b

    What the SCOTUS did yesterday was return power back to the state

    Libs made the ridiculous argument that we somehow ine one day warped back to 1965 Selma and States could'nt be trusted.

    But youv'e taken it a step further and have justified racist derogatory insults.


    I have, haven't I....so be it...and I guess I just like ducks........ I wonder what term Mexican Americans would use if one of their own voted against a comprehensive immigration bill......huh?

    Betrayal?

    What if it is the right thing to do for the country, not just for a race?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    And this is the most pathetic part of it all.

    His own people are indeed all Americans, not just a particular race.

    Its people who have YOUR attitude that hold us back as a nation.
