When Liberals Cry ‘Uncle’

When these liberals falsely make race allegations they are racist.
Check it out:

Should black liberals get a pass on making racist accusations?

On a Nation of Islam radio show last weekend, Rep. Bennie Thompson — a Mississippi Democrat and member of the Congressional Black Caucus — called Justice Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” for his part in recent Supreme Court decisions, such as last year’s finding of a portion of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional.

For the uninitiated, this is one of the most vile terms that can be directed at an African-American. It has come to mean a servile black person in league with white power interests.
Days later, Thompson refused to apologize: “If you look at his decisions on the court, they have been adverse to the minority community, and the people I represent have a real issue with an African-American not…sensible to those issues.”

A CNN reporter noted that “Uncle Tom” is inappropriate if said by a white person. “But I’m black,” Thompson responded.

So that makes it right, Congressman?
