    sorry Grant, it's not a racist term, although one could argue that it is a race-based term ... there's a difference ... it's like calling someone a race traitor, a name ("race traitor") bigoted whites called whites who supported civil rights for blacks ...

    Do you really have to ask? Especially after observing him for how many years now? He got one of the lowest ratings by the ABA and was approved only after the Bush administration pressured the ABA to give him a mid-level rating and went after them as partisan. A lot of pressure, and I suspect that the ABA was also reluctant to turn away a black nominee.

    You are a racist
    No. What gave you that idea? But when you're black and you vote to gut the voting rights act, don't be surprised if someone calls you an Uncle Tom.

    Well I'm not Black but I would never call a Black man an 'Uncle Tom'. It is certainly race related, however you want to cut it, and unnecessary and disrespectful. . It is especially egregious when it is said by a politician. They should be bringing people together not trying to stir up their supporters though insults about race.

    do you have any idea how bigoted your post is? blacks are dumb, lazy, etc.? Really?
    trust me, Dems are not afraid of conservative blacks ... there are so many and yet they don't get black votes for the GOP ... but Thomas will do a lot of harm before he leaves the Court ... I'll grant you that, but not to Dems ... to blacks and other oppressed groups ...

    we sorta agree ... I simply was making the point that it wasn't racist ... but it's not really an insult about race when a black man calls another black man an Uncle Tom ...

    the problem is that race still matters in this country, which is why we still need the voting rights act ...

    so Elbert Guillory is a racist



    is he an Uncle Tom

    or how about Rev. C.L. Bryant is he a racist also is he an Uncle Tom




    RUNAWAY SLAVE is a compelling, insightful look at how government policies have systematically re-enslaved the black population in the United States. Through entitlements and other government programs, a perpetual state of welfare exists, creating what can only be described as a form of modern slavery for a large percentage of the African-American community. The documentary features Rev. C.L. Bryant, who proudly refers to himself as a “runaway slave.” This former NAACP chapter president left the organization after concluding its goals were more about political posturing than actual civil rights. Rev. Bryant says he escaped the bondage of progressivism and denounced the shackles of entitlements. He now has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution. While Rev. Bryant’s compelling story helps launch the film, we soon discover he is not alone as he treks across the new Underground Railroad in America.
