    Before you start calling African Americans "Uncle Toms" you would be advised to read Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, so you at least have some familiarity with the character.

    I am knowledgeable. In many fields of endeavor. I'm the worst kind of N-word.
    An intelligent, thinking one. Sorry to disappoint.

    In terms of how its defined and how it is used in the real world to defame people..yeah he is.


    The use I am referring to-

    Uncle Tom

    Uncle Tom is a term used by black people to try to convince other black people that working, education, living well, and setting a good example for their children is selling out.
    Urban Dictionary: Uncle Tom

    Apply that to the more PC definition you'll find in the more "mainstream" Dictionaries-

    1 : a black who is overeager to win the approval of whites (as by obsequious behavior or uncritical acceptance of white values and goals)
    2 : a member of a low-status group who is overly subservient to or cooperative with authority <the worst floor managers and supervisors by far are women…Some of them are regular Uncle Toms — Jane Fonda>
    Uncle Tom - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    Use a dash of common sense and life experience in the USA and Obama is the commonly held view of what an Uncle Tom is.

    I would like to bump this one more time so that it goes on the record that the first use of the "n-word" reference was by AS himself, further proving that intelligent discourse is being traded for histrionics, hysterics, and application of victimhood status with more alacrity and glee than we have ever seen before here at DP.

    Heh, that is exactly what I was thinking when I noticed that reference.

    Dammit, we got to stop agreeing on stuff...quick, let's talk stimulus package or torture...

    Haven't seen much out of you I would label as intelligent. To me, the worst kind of "N-word" is the same as the worst kind of "W-word". That is, someone who won't take care of their family, won't work, and expects others to pick up the tab and clean up their messes. Are you one of those?
