"Uncle Tom is a martyr, not a sell-out. His devotion to his fellow slaves is so unshakable that he sacrifices a chance for freedom and, ultimately, his life to help them." Which is why I normally just call a spade a spade and say housenigger instead.

"Uncle Tom", can be seen from different perspectives. Let us keep in mind, this is a fictional character, written by a white woman who thought that an afrikan wanting to be free had issues. In the book, the reader can find noble deeds of tom; the reader can also find things that would make the him/her say, 'he out of his mind'. It would be something else if folks mischaracterized real people, worthy of defending. It's rare that I use the term "uncle tom", but when I do, it is not a compliment.

You're so in need of a racial boogeyman that you say the most peabrained things no matter how crazy just to maintain the boogeyman.

When 'Uncle Tom' Became an Insult

Cholly ·
New research shows the label took a derogatory turn much earlier than previously believed. Today nobody wants to be called an Uncle Tom, but 150 years ago, it was a compliment. In Harriet Beecher Stowe's abolitionist 1852 novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin , Uncle Tom is a martyr, not a sell-out. His devotion to his fellow slaves is so unshakable that he sacrifices a chance for freedom and, ultimately, his life to help them. How did a term of high praise become the ultimate black-on-black insult?
