No, I'd much rather be called 'Uncle Tom' by someone black. I'd feel that they had some standing or basis to call me that. It hurts more from someone black, but it angers me more from someone not black.
My problem with it here is a mixture of the following:
Anyway - Whoopie - again, and with all due respect, only an aggrieved white man could say that blacks have it better in a society made by and for white males. Just becuase not every white male is Daddy Warbucks does not mean that the game isn't rigged for him and against others.
