HOWEVER, there is one sense of the term which I believe is meaningful: The sellout is a racial appeaser.

The reason could be perceived self-interest (profit for example) or it could be due to a racial inferiority complex.

I'm not sure that I agree with this "expense of the group" idea.

You can certainly sell your own self out.

My approach is from a 'psychologically grounded' perspective.... I believe it is a overt statement of white men's repressed desires towards black women. It was political profiling as well, though.

We need to realize and understand that when this type of rhetoric comes out of the mouth[s] of non-hueman[s] that it is purely a displaced projection of their own paranoias/and repressed feelings of inadequacy.
