I don't know how I feel about this.
First of all, Uncle Tom was a good guy that stood up to Master, even though he was nonviolent and all of that. The traitor is Sambo. Even though Euro Americans butchered Uncle Tom's Cabin when performing it in plays.
I wish brothers and sisters would stop attacking other brothers and sisters all the time with these traitorous slurs when a brother or sister doesn't believe or do anything they do not like. It's been going on since the since the days of WEB Dubois, Marcus Garvey and Booker T Washington. It's dangerous behavior and a detriment to the population as a whole, because stuff goes down real bad. Marcus Garvey got put in prison because WEB Dubois turning into a snitch.
Clarence Thompson is different, he's an American conservative. There is absolutely no need to be calling the man a Tom. Just say you don't agree with him and call it a day. Brothers and sisters love going out of their way to ruin somebody when all it takes is an acknowledgement of disagree. This thing with Clarence Thomas has gone on too long.
Conservatives have a very strict interpretation of the law and believe it or not, in some cases he has displayed some pro-Black him by calling for a ban cross burning in a decision, which would go against First Amendment rights.
“[A]ren't you understating the—the effects of—of the burning cross? . . . Now, it's my understanding that we had almost 100 years of lynching and activity in the South. The Knights of Camellia and—and the Ku Klux Klan, and this was a reign of terror and the cross was a symbol of that reign of terror. Was—isn't that significantly greater than intimidation or a threat?”
Do I like Clarence Thomas, no. Honestly, I don't like a lot of prominent African American political figures. But at the end of the day, I wouldn't go as far as calling them a race traitor unless they did something ridiculously traitorous.
I do like the fervor the brother had though, lots of brothers don't have that fire.
