Hope this helps Fenton.
    The only Whites who are called Uncle Toms are men called Tom who happen to be Uncles. It is clearly a racist term, and has been at least since the days of MLK.

    Unqualified? By what criteria have you come to this conclusion?

    Re: Democratic lawmaker hits justice as ‘Uncle Thomas’

    Is anyone going to claim that the intent of calling Thomas an Uncle Tom was anything other than: "Thomas is a shameless sell-out who identifies so much with the rich and powerful, mostly white, elites that he is willing to make decisions that harm his own oppressed people." If so, what do you think he actually meant?

Thomas would probably be more of an Uncle ruckus rather than an uncle tom.
    so all Blacks need to be democrats other wise they are Uncle Toms?

    You are a racist

    Yeah, it reflects your freaky conservative logic. That's the point. Though I can decode the intent.

    Yeah I hear you. I repeat back his racist code and he suddenly can't read it.

    Hey look kids, a mischaracterization pretending to care about blacks.

    Kind of sums up the OP.

    Liberals will almost always justify racism in order to defend their fellow leftists. The only ones they will not defend are those who dare leave their camp.
    Fenton mentioned moral character, and his visits to the DC Madam make fail.

    Not being a conservative, I rarely rely on conservative logic. When you want to discuss the topic, let me know.

    Personally, I don't like calling people names like that, but it hurts many of us to watch a man who benefitted tremendously from the struggles of the John Lewis's of the world to turn around and vote as he did ... it's not hard to understand folks' anger, just as it angered white racists in the south when a white individual fought for the civil rights of black people ... they used to call them race traitors ...
    it is. the democrats get them dependent on government hand outs and promote blacks to have illegitimate children by paying them to do so. democrats do what ever they can to keep blacks dependent on the government so they will keep voting for the hand the feeds them
    Democrats are scared to death of a Black Conservatives and do what ever they can to marginalize and silence them because they are scared other blacks will also see the light and they will lose their permanent voting block
