San Bruno, home of the Tanforan mall, started as a lean-to on the El Camino Real in the late 1850s, named the 14 Mile House, as to extract a profit changing and watering horses of travelers between San Jose and San Francisco. By 1875, old August Jenevein turned the stop into Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a drinking and gaming establishment of the highest caliber. A landmark that survived 75 years in those pre-politically correct days. The town that would be San Bruno grew up around it, and it became a prized place for a quick country retreat from the big city, just 14 miles north. With the train coming through, and the pleasant warm weather so different then just over the hill in San Francisco, commerce and entertainment tourism grew. In 1899, to celebrate the turn of the century, in the green pastures of Llano just a few miles away from Uncle Tom's Cabin, the Tanforan horse racing track was built. The racetrack was financed by Prince André Poniatowski, brother-in-law of William H. Crocker. Tanforan Racetrack op ...

Thanks to my buddy Reggie Warren Jr., I saw a video from a media correspondent named Stephen A. Smith, (which I'll post below), who was responding to a wave of "Uncle Tom" hate he received after defending racially charged comments made by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban... which were almost undoubtedly brought on by secretly recorded comments made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling that were later publicized and went viral on the internet.  Stephan A. Smith's defense of his own perspective struck a chord with me, as have a (seemingly unrelated) wave of pro-feminist internet memes that collectively align themselves under the battle cry, "Not all men." The latter is used when feminists bring to light (and rightly so) the gender inequality in our society, (not just the United States, but the world in general).  And in defense of being lumped into such a heinous category, some males say, "Not all men!" As in, "Not all men are misogynist...  Not all men seek to subjugate women...  Not all men ...

I just want to say Thank-You to everyone for all of your heartfelt messages. You are all amazing and we're so lucky to have you in our lives. Wesley has left behind quite a legacy... Making the promise to do what's best was easy, keeping it was much harder and being here without him is even worse right now. He's not where he's supposed to be and everything is out of whack. I've been surrounded by people and animals, and as much comfort as they've been, I still feel lonesome. Jen, Jazzy and I are walking around in circles. I always joked about him being our Fearless Leader, but it's looking like he might really have been the glue that kept us all together... Why the giant bird photos, you ask?

My good friend Stephen A. Smith on being called a sellout Uncle Tom over his position on Mark Cuban's Comments:

Why did Mark Cuban cross the road? But in all seriousness, cuban messed up by being honest. One simply does not do that in our PC culture. Props to stephen a smith for not bowing to bullying. I ‘Don’t Give a *** : Popular ESPN Commentator Goes on EPIC Rant About Mark Cuban and Race After Being Labeled an ‘Uncle Tom’ ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith refused to backdown on Friday after he came under fire for defending Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s comments about bigotry in a recent interview. Despite being labeled an “Uncle Tom” and a “sellout” by some in the black community, Smith made it clear that he stands by what he said “100-fold.” “‘Stephen A. Smith is a sellout,’ ‘Stephen A. Smith is an Uncle Tom,’ ‘Stephen A. Smith ain’t black,’ ‘you ain’t one of us’ — these are the kinds of things that were said to me yesterday,” Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take” Friday. Regardless, he said he doesn’t care who disagrees with him and they would be sm ...
Joe Watkins is why we use the phase Uncle Tom. Uncle Tom is a black person that suck up to whites in this country.
Why is it OK for black liberals to call black conservatives or libertarians Uncle Tom, or Whippjng Boy or bootlicker or Mas'sahs Ni¿¿a? Seriously, WHY IS THAT OK? Robert Griffin III, an NFL quarterback, has been called, by the left sports and news media, everything but a Christian for being a black conservative with a white wife. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) gets the same treatment from the Black Caucus. And the list goes on and on.
The only problem I have with Mark Cuban's comments on bigotry, was his use of the black guy in the hood analogy, only because of the firestorm created with Trayvon Martin. He has apologized to the Martin family, and I feel everything else he said is a true representation of peoples fears and stereotypes of each other. I think he was clumsy on his approach to this topic, but I respect his honest perspective. We always say we should have a good discussion on race relations in this country but as soon as someone tries to engage in the discussion we're ready to run them out of town with pitchforks. We need to relax a little and not see everything as a race baiting trigger (and this goes for all races). The sad part about this is, as I'm writing this I know one of my own people are mad at me for having this view point and they're seeing me as some sort of "Uncle Tom"! Thank God I could give a crap about what they think of me. I am my own man and I refuse to go along with the masses like some sheep. In ...
Civil War Profile: a pair of Harriets. Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American author and abolitionist. At the age of 21 she married Calvin Ellis Stowe, a professor at the seminary where her father served as president. Calvin was an ardent critic of slavery, and the couple became supporters of the Underground Railroad, even housing fugitive slaves in their home for a period. While living near Bowdoin College where her husband was then teaching, Harriet became inspired to write a story about the problem with slavery. Originally published as weekly installments in the National Era in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin, was soon printed as a novel. In less than a year it had sold an unprecedented 300,000 copies. The book's emotional portrayal of the impact of slavery captured the nation's attention, and added fuel to the fire of the debate over the abolition of slavery. Abolitionists were energized by it, while it provoked widespread anger in the South. Harriet Tubman was born to slave parents on a large plantation in Ma ...

We also have perfectly acceptable speech: “A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom.” -Spike Lee referring to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Delegate Salima Siler Marriott, a black Baltimore Democrat, said Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele invites comparisons to a slave who loves his cruel master or a cookie that is black on the outside and white inside because his conservative political philosophy is, in her view, anti-black. During the 2002 campaign, Democratic supporters pelted Mr. Steele with Oreo cookies during a gubernatorial debate at Morgan State University in Baltimore. Nationally syndicated cartoonist Jeff Danziger on former Secretary of State designate Condoleezza Rice: “She reminded me of Prissy, a character in the film ‘Gone With the Wind,’ who knew all about ‘birthin’ babies,’ until an actual baby was on the way, and then she didn’t know ‘nuthin’ about birthin’ babies…’ Janeane Garofalo: Says Herman Cain supporters only like him because he is bla ...
So I heard several democrats mention blacks like Ben Carson or Herman Cain are Uncle Tom's. I had to read Uncle Tom's Cabin to get it. They are right for once! All of them stand for what is right, treat all humans as precious, and put God first. What a compliment!

Still an Uncle Tom? Or does that make me a Benedict Arnold? Which is substantially worse I presume.

Look up these. 50 cent, Amy Holmes, LL Cool J, Karl Malone, Jimmy Walker (Dynamite conservative), Don King, Wilt Chamberlain, etc. being conservative doesn't make you Racist, or an Uncle Tom. Using those kind of words to anyone who disagrees with you and categorizing people as if you have to see things a specific way according to how well you tan is racist.
The all time classical fighters Mohammad Ali and Joe Frazier must have shook hands and exchanged smiles. For years, Frazier has voiced his bitterness over the way Ali had insulted him, over how Ali had called him "ugly," "a gorilla," and an "Uncle Tom." His anger was never in fuller view than when Ali, stricken with Parkinson's disease, lit the Olympic flame at the 1996 Games in Atlanta, and Frazier said he would have liked to have "pushed him in." One exchange came in 2001 after Ali told The New York Times he was sorry for what he said about Frazier before their first fight. At first, Frazier accepted the apology, but then … "He didn't apologize to me -- he apologized to the paper," Frazier said in a June issue of TV Guide. "I'm still waiting [for him] to say it to me." Ali's response: "If you see Frazier, you tell him he's still a gorilla." Year later, Frazier told Sports Illustrated in May 2009 that he no longer held hard feelings for Ali. After Frazier's death in November 2011, Ali was among those w ...

It was a wonderful being with our daughters, their husbands and our beautiful grand children. On Sat. we watched two of Lily's T Ball games, Erin and Ian's basketball games, visited with Eric Vatland's dad, Terry , his aunt Carol and Uncle Tom. It was wonderful to spend time with Kara Vatland Roberts, Charles, Sawyer and the "coolest grandson of all times" Ian. Camilla our youngest granddaughter was so busy playing with her cousins and Lily's toys. She loves going to Aunt Janet's and Uncle Eric's house because "they have toys and food". She was such an adorable young lady all weekend. Thank you to Janet Pollert Vatland and Eric for being such gracious host and hostess.

One last comment on our visit to Vegas. The folks at the pawn shop often consult with Rebecca Romney, manager of Bauman's Rare Books. Lynn and I thought it would be fun to see what her store was like, so we found it in the shops between Palazzo and The Venetian (not sure which it's in). The really rare books were behind glass. A few that I noted (all FIRST EDITIONS!): Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac and also his Experiments in Electricity; Charles Darwin, Origin of the Species (American edition); Dr. Seuss, Cat in the Hat; Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind; Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn; Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol; Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin; and Mary Shelley, Frankenstein. All of those were $8,500 to $30,000. The most expensive book in the store was first edition The Call of the Wild by Jack London. In its original dust jacket and inscribed to his mother. $125,000. To those who enjoy investing in first edition books, what a wonderful shop to visit. Thousands of other v ...

I see Mississippi back in the National New - Negative of course with you Congress man Ben Thompson. Black on Black is still racism in my book when he calls Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a Uncle Tom. he needs to look at this man's service to our country and see what a good job he has done on the Supreme Court with his views and votes. Ben needs to shut his negative mouth and not use Mississippi as a stepping stone - Take some money up and move this bum to Detroit or New York~! - Just a thought from a mis-planted boy from Mississippi . . .

Uncle Tom is trending. Somebody got one of Brady's sisters knocked up or a Democrat attacking abotger black Conservative.
OTD in 1884, the Howard Theater presented Uncle Tom's Cabin "with real bloodhounds":
I am absolutely sick of the words "minority", " black", and "white." Why can't we all just be Americans; freedom loving people who just want to pursue life, love and happiness. If "we the people" are ever going to have a chance at ending racism we must squash the use of words that continue to perpetuate it. Color does not define us; our personalities do. Bad people come in every skin color and so do good people. Judge one another based on deeds and not skin color. Slang terms like "Uncle Tom" need to disappear from our vocabularies forever. America the beautiful.not America the minority and white. United we stand, divided we fall. When an insurgent in Afghanistan gets an American Soldier in his sights he doesn't see a minority, white, or black American... He just sees an American. Let's fight racism with the same passion that we have in fighting terrorism.
so now a black congressman calling the only black Supreme Court Justice an "Uncle Tom" is okay because it's black-on-black degradation..
Bennie thomson you are the real Uncle Tom
AND THIS IS HOW SMALL THEIR BRAINS REALLY ARE, GUYS: A Mississippi Democratic Congressman says Clarence Thomas is an “Uncle Tom,” Mitch McConnell is a “racist,” and that Republicans are only anti-big government and anti-Obamacare because President Obama is black. Rep. Bennie Thompson was appearing on a New Nation of Islam radio program over weekend where he made the comments. “I’ve been in Washington. I saw three presidents now. I never saw George Bush treated like this. I never saw Bill Clinton treated like this with such disrespect,” Thompson said. “That Mitch McConnell would have the audacity to tell the president of the United States — not the chief executive, but the commander-in-chief — that ‘I don’t care what you come up with we’re going to be against it.’ Now if that’s not a racist statement I don’t know what is.”
Interesting to see the right up in arms about Bennie Thompson's "Uncle Tom" remark but defending
Uncle Tom how about a real American your race has so many problems you should be grateful that Clarence Thomas exists

Uncle Tom has left this world to be with Aunt Dorothy (my father's sister). He was 99 and the last of my Donald aunts and uncles. Sad that our families are spread far and wide and we usually just see them at funerals now that we are growing older.

Thompson wants to call Clarence Thomas an "Uncle Tom", then he's free to use whatever racially divisive nomenclature he wants to use, and good taste be damned.
A good guy. Has he been called an Uncle Tom yet? Such a shame good people have to put up w/ that bigotry.
Uh, Clarence Thomas is an Uncle Tom and he's got the voting record to prove it.
lol. Calling black ppl that dont agree with you an Uncle Tom is just plain stupid. But I guess I'm a racist for believing that
Black congressman stands by comment Clarence Thomas is an ‘Uncle Tom’.
Black congressman stands by comment that Clarence Thomas is an ‘Uncle Tom’ SO BAN HIM FOR LIFE
Congressman Bennie Thompson doubles down on his "Uncle Tom" comments about Justice Clarence Thomas.
Don Lemon is really trying to equate Uncle Tom with the n word. My headache is starting to get worse
Congressman stands by calling Clarence Thomas an 'Uncle Tom' via
Uncle Tom is someone who would tell black men that they would be more accepted if they didnt curse, litter or wear their …
Bennie called Justice Clarence Thomas a "Uncle Tom." Stop comparing that to Don Sterling.
I really don't think calling Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas an "Uncle Tom" is very polite nor' deserved seeing as how he is the most "even keeled" Supreme Court Judge there is !!
Congressman Bennie Thompson called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Uncle Tom on CNN and stood on it. Is this a racial statement by a black congressman or is he just telling the truth...about Clarence Thomas and his position of lack of support for black rights and access in this country?
In the Wake of Sterling racial comments we have an Black American from congress name Thomas (D) that called other Black congressmen "Uncle Tom" which is a racially motivated comment. When asked if it was a white person that made that statement would it be ok? In his defense when asked if its a racially motivated statement he replies. (drum rolls).I'm Black...I cant be racist!! FOH!!!
Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, and David Webb complete the Uncle Tom trifecta.. Stephen in Django

Why would calling someone who is a member of his own race "Uncle Tom" racist?.
Can they explain their idea of "Uncle Tom"? Seems like only thing needed 2 get label is 2 be black & conservative.
Had a great dinner with my Aunt Beth and Uncle Tom :-) got to catch up and talk about things that have been on my chest for years. Thank you guys for the great time.
My family, and myself thank all of our friends for the thoughts, and prayers in the passing of my Uncle Tom. We love all of you !
Is referring to a black man as an "Uncle Tom" a racist remark? (notice, I didn't say who was doing the name calling)
I can finally share my proud Aunt moment! Congratulations to my beautiful niece Skylar, on her full ride scholarship to play basketball for Carl Sandburg College. Uncle Tom and I are so proud of you!!! Love you♡
Talk about "Uncle Tom"... Tell me how in the HAM SANDWICH did anybody at the Los Angeles NAACP nominate Don Sterling for a Lifetime Achievement AWARD?
We paid our respects to Uncle Tom today, RIP. Here are a few pictures of family sharing memories and making new ones... LOVE MY FAMILY
Hey Rep. Bennie Thompson, if Thomas is an Uncle Tom for being a life loving Conservative; what are you for supporting Black Genocide? 15M!?
Steve Kovaly, you should be jealous! I'm hanging out with Aunt Bev and Uncle Tom!
ID like to big up mrs. I mean mr. I meant mz. Leon Jenkins from the NAACP for proving that uncle Tom is still in effect. And furthermore running rampid in our so called leadership. Thank Allah for Minister Farrakhan. For showing me what a father is and does.
To confirm the double standard in our country today is the situation reported that concern Rep. Bennie Thompson. He made a racist statement about Judge Thomas being an Uncle Tom. OMG...this is very very offensive to me and I demand he resign. Wouldn't that be what he would demand of anyone else. Hey ..Al Sharpton where are you on this. Get him kicked out of his seat.
Congressman Bennie Thompson (D - MS) calls Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom! As bad or worse than what Sterling said?
Rest in Peace Uncle Tom, Your family loves you, and you will always be with us !
So that Mississippi rep that called dude an Uncle Tom . Yea y'all kno what he meant, I'm waiting to see who's gonna say something !!!
Can anyone answer this question for me? Why is the term "Uncle Tom" negative? I've used the term in the past because of what I thought it meant, but after reading the book...I'm not sure I was right. Uncle Tom encouraged slaves to escape, and because he would not help his master hunt them down he was tortured and killed. He died knowing that he would never see his family again, but he was at peace because he knew he would soon see God. Today, Dem Congressman Bennie Thompson called Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom. This was supposed to be an insult, but in remembering the book--that sounded like a compliment. (By no means do I think Clarence Thomas would lay down his life for his brother or his faith) Please don't answer the question if you haven'r read the book.
No human being should be allowed to benefit from the heinous act of racism whether you are black, white, yellow, red or brown. The Clippers should not be sold to any of the butthead minority celebrities who never stood up against racism or anything. Donate the Clippers to the good white celebrities who have put their careers and livelihoods on the line to stand up against racism, injustice and inequality: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Angela Jolie and many. I respect people who stand up against evil even when that evil deed does not affect them. It said that the only whip that cracks harder and stings more than a slave master is the whip of an "Uncle Tom" black slave driver, AKA house ***
Love it! Love it! Love it! They could play all day and I would love every second of it! (Aunt Dee, show Uncle Tom)
Here's a newspaper clipping from 1940 celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of my Great Grandparents Will & Edna Wright. They were married in 1890. This photo was taken in front of the fireplace at 201 Meeks Ave. I was told the stones used to build the home and fireplace came from White River. She passed away in 1948 at the age of 79. He lived to be 98 and passed away in 1966. My uncle Tom Blease built that house and he lived there until the age of 95. The house is still there.
Los Angeles NAACP president Leon Jenkins is a House *** ole Uncle Tom, NAACP was founded in NYC. It was organized with similar nonsensical Show Negroes chiefly WEB DuBois and white liberals. WEB DuBois did much to damage black consciousness and mobilization under Marcus Garvey. Ole man Marcus described WEB DuBois as a” hater of the Black Race.” Black consciousness was not on the Agenda of NAACP. Leon Jenkins thinking stinks. It exhibits the philosophy and practices of money over self-respect and benefits over people.
Last September, Uncle Tom Sapp brought me a box of his treasured Job's Daughter's items that he had received as Associate Supreme Guardian during his many travels. He asked me to put these items to good use. As you know he passed away last November. I didn't have the "heart" to open the box until this week. Mom (LaVonne Haney) and Linda Phillips are making up baskets with Tom's treasures. The baskets will be available to be purchased at the silent auction at the Supreme Visit/dinner theater on Saturday. The money will be given to Aunt Barb Cooper, Vice Supreme Guardian, at session for her travel fund for next year. I believe he is looking down upon us smiling.
The baby & I like tomato sandwiches:) lol. Yay something I can eat and enjoy. Thanks Aunt Anna Rickett and Uncle Tom Rickett for showing me these so long ago lol.
I see a lot of people talking about uncle Tom this and uncle Tom that. Talking about these successful black people while they sitting at home doing nothing with their lives can someone explain it to me because I just see these people doing what my mama taught me and that is talking with some sense and some respect
R.I.P to my uncle tom we will miss u very much
Anybody who wears Jordans needs to shut up about Donald support Uncle Tom. Your argument is invalid . Null & void lol
The phrase Uncle Tom Cobley and all is used in British English as a humorous or whimsical way of saying et al., often to express exasperation at the large number of people in a list. The phrase comes from a Devonfolk song "Widecombe Fair", collected by Sabine Baring-Gould. Its chorus ends with a lon…

Sorry to learn of the passing of Uncle Tom. I never got to spend that much time with him, but when I did, he always struck me as a classy guy - the embodiment of a true "Notre Dame Man"!

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today Tim Reagan Gerri Reagan Mike Reagan Tommy Reagan Shannon Poirier Greg Poirier Dani Poirier Brie Poirier

I have been informed that I cannot be an Uncle Tom. That's racist.
I ask prayer for my family. My great uncle tom was in the hospital for breathing problems and my grandmother.
It's pretty interesting reading a lot of comments regarding the Donald Sterling saga. I hate to say this, but it's pretty clear Uncle Tom syndrome is rampant. While a lot of white Americans are either shying away from the subject or openly condemning it, we have black people arguing about its legality and fairness. While I agree it's probably not fair, I also look at it from this perspective: how fair is it for a racist man to own a team that enriches him by the skills he employs from a group of people he actually loathes? No self-respecting white man would allow you to treat his people in such a despicable manner and come out talking about fairness. Like it or not, they stand up for their own and shamefully, they also stand up where foolish black men cower. Black people should stop complaining about racism if they're unwilling to confront its reality. Must it happen to you personally before you realise how disgusting it truly is?
One thing I can not stand is a uncle tom *** mofo
History lesson: Do you know where the phrase "Uncle Tom" comes from? Have you read the book? The N word is taking the same path as the phrase "Uncle Tom", but only in reverse. then you will know.

The fact that I just got a message from my Uncle Tom asking who wanted to hike the falls and I was just talking about wanting to hike them again soon. He must have been reading my mind lol
To all those who have beaten me up over calling Warren Mundine an Uncle Tom: he is, he's destroying his own people & he said he'd be hated.
So Senator Scott, a BLACK conservative Senator gets called an. 'Uncle Tom ' and all sorts of vulgar, degrading names BY the NAACP! But a racist like the LA Clipper owner is 'forgiven' and will still be worked with? Oh yes, he gave them 2.5 million dollars. And Al Sharpton said on tape he was aware of Sterling's history and shared a podium and table with him at an award banquet?! So now I'm confused. It's okay to be a racist as long as you are a wealthy donor? But Black conservatives are 'Uncle Tom' and traitors to their race?! *** !
This uncle tom *** *** in the barbershop defending Sterling.
Making homemade burgers and fries for supper.. I always think of Uncle Tom when I do :/

This is my beautiful sister, Sheila Keane and my very handsome Uncle Tom Thomas Potorenski. ;)
We (blacks) have been conditioned since the dawn of slavery to hold the slaves (our Ancestors) accountable for their capture. To this day, we consistently ignore the systemic impact of white supremacy on every level and we resort to defining roles for the *** House *** uncle Tom, *** *** . . . We (blacks) are consistently divisive when it comes to trying to unite with each other and in solidarity when it comes to tearing each other down, and we consistently construct and maintenance the tools which further arm the oppressors of our humanity. And the minute one of us (black, brown, white, etc.), starts to call out white supremacy for what it really is, for the destruction it causes to humanity on every level . . . The oppressed, particularly us blacks, somehow find solidarity in defending the oppressor. The sooner we recognize that this system is destroying us all, the sooner we can build for real!

Ayo.. Why'd TNT make n!ggaz dress like clowns after Kenny Smith went in on Sterling after that Mavs game... Sugar on sh!t won't make it pancakes.. although Uncle Tom/Charles Barley was fixing his plate with 3rd's.. Lol. Th'fxck throwing your jersey in at center court do?! lol.. Show team unity?!

Can u say str8 Uncle Tom? I say every movie or show he's n from now on should b looked at like they're no big deal n not watch Em
From the Potato Letters--70 years ago: Uncle Tom writing to Aunt Henrietta, "I guess you cans see I'm still in this hole. I won't be for much longer though. They couldn't get transportation for us Friday so we leave Tuesday. I'm in Pensacola for the last visit I hope.I saw a piece in a paper where the C. G. [Coast Guard] was getting rid of 90% of their dogs and the 10% would go overseas. I'm not sorry I'm headed outboard yet. Can't hardly wait to find out what I'll get." Tom has been hinting he would be leaving Florida for a while now. He has been on Dog Patrol providing security at Whiting Field. The Coast Guard was in great demand to provide operators for landing craft as island hopping continued in the Pacific and Allied forces prepped for the big invasion of Europe.
All the Clippers and Doc Rivers are Uncle Tom, willie Lynch, self indulgent, Sell Outs for playing for the Clippers.
Libs complain about Donald Sterling, the same libs who call Clarence Thomas and all black conservatives 'Uncle Tom'
In light of Donald Sterling comments, define " Uncle Tom".
Do you even know the History of that term? Donald is a POS; what part of that makes DJ or any other Clipper an Uncle Tom?
“How can any player want to play for Donald Sterling” I'm saying though if you black and not trying to get traded = Uncle Tom
I'm just waiting for some Uncle Tom *** (probably Herman Cain) to come out and say "Donald Sterling isn't racist we are best friends"
"Donald Sterling got me looking like an Uncle Tom in here 😩" 😂😂😂 clipper lover
My family are Nigerian, I'm not African American and I never called you an 'Uncle Tom' even though

Happy 80th Birthday (Wow!) to THE most amazing man I know...My Uncle Thomas J. Burke. Graduate of the Naval Academy, he had an incredible career of service to this country on early nuclear subs that included going under the ice caps for months at a time during the Cold War to 'keep an eye' on the Soviet Union. He went on to a distinguished engineering career that has taken him around the world helping people and he is still going strong. Along with raising an amazing family along the way, I feel like he helped raise our family as well. A true patriarch and someone to be emulated (as much as that's possible by mere humans) he is a man of consistency, honor and valor. Happy Birthday, Uncle Tom...WE LOVE YOU!!
Paul George so happy Harden tanking. Taking the heat off his Uncle Tom ***
How many white people called Clarence Thomas an "Uncle Tom" yesterday?
“The black fist is a meaningless symbol. When you open it, you have nothing but fingers–weak, empty fingers. The only time the black fist has significance is when there's money inside. There's where the power lies.” When Jesse Owens said this he was dismissed as an Uncle Tom, but in hindsight he did have a valid point.
ATTN: WHITE PEOPLE. saying I'm "one of the good ones" is NOT a compliment. You basically just called me an Uncle Tom.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was American abolitionist and author. Her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin is said to have started Civil War.
Walter Williams is another black man many on the left would refer to as an Uncle Tom. It's a shame that many black youth would prefer to look up to rap artists instead of individuals like Williams, Thomas Sowell, or Dr. Ben Carson.
An N-bomb, black conservatives and Alvin Holmes is an Uncle Tom...
Tomorrow is gunna be a hard one.. Laying my Uncle Tom to rest. Ain't no cowboy out there like him. ❤️
Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote a book called "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and they say Abraham Lincoln met her one day and said, "So, you're the little woman who wrote this book that made this great war!" If Karl Marx were to be resurrected today and meet Hillary Rodham Clinton, I'm guessing he might say something like this about her book, "It Takes A Village"... "So, you're the little woman who made Communism in Amerika!" The end! Chet Tyson

I didn't have your email address so I am taking the opportunity to answer you here. I want to thank you for the book "Jesus Calling." As I mentioned to you earlier, I made a resolution to read my bible every day during lent, hoping that this would become a daily habit. As I also mentioned, Uncle Ray is leading a bible study, which Uncle Tom and I are attending. It is very comprehensive and I am enjoying not only the lesson but my time with him and Janice. But I digress. I was flipping through the book, and as I do with calendars and books with dated material, I flip first to my birthday month, or in in this case, my birth date. I enjoyed the passage. I flipped to Dec 25 and read the passage and was thunderstruck with a line in that days reading. Jesus is to be saying, "Try to imagine what I gave up when I came into your world as a baby. I set aside My Glory... As is mentioned in the reading, we all look at Jesus' coming from our prospective, but never from his. I understand that he was all to ...
Uncle Tom you will be sadly missed, just know that we love you and you will always be in our heat, and in our memories, never forgotten. My prayers are with you Aunt Jean and know that I love you dearly.
Prayers for my Aunt Jean and Family for my Uncle past -we Love you! Rest in peace Uncle Tom
OSCAR OVERLOOKED - Octavia Spencer's Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2011 brought the total number of African-Americans in all fields of the motion picture industry to have receive the covered Oscar statuette to 27. In 1940, Hattie McDaniel was the first, receiving a "Best Supporting Actress" Oscar for her portrayal of "Mammy" in GONE WITH THE WIND. But can you name the second?? It was James Baskett in 1948. Never heard of James Baskett?? The first African-American male to receive the Oscar, Baskett was awarded an Honorary Academy Award on March 28, 1948 for "for his able and heart-warming characterization of Uncle Remus, friend and story teller to the children of the world in Walt Disney's SONG OF THE SOUTH." Baskett died a little over three months later, on July 9, 1948, of a heart ailment. At the New York premiere of the film, which is set in the Reconstruction period following the Civil War, dozens of black and white pickets chanted, 'We fought for Uncle Sam, not Uncle Tom,' while the NAACP called fo ...

Arrived safely back in Japan! Uncle Tom hired a limousine driver called "Mr shin" to drive me to the airport. He kept saying: "mistah Tom issa berry smaato man". My uncle must always tip him generously I figured so I did it as well so I wouldn't be the one to break tradition. He was very nice though! While driving he showed me the Cherry blossom trees. Ironic that it is not Japan where I first see Sakura but Korea. He also asked me:"yuu rike korean mujike?" When I replied favorably he proudly let me listen to Britney spears,Backstreet boys and bon jovi for the rest of the hourlong drive. In Audio and Video format... Once I boarded the plane I immediately checked next to me. There were no babies and no French. There were old people however...50% chance of having a lousy trip. Two minutes after the plane took off he started talking In Korean. Which was fine until my Korean vocabulary ran out one minute later. Desperate to escape this hellish scenario I thought of a cunning plan. I pretended to be thankful . ...

Scotlands Debate: Well we had one man totally in control, un-flustered and in possession of the facts, A man who lives in Scotland and has extensively travelled the land talking to and listening to what the people are looking for and need. Jim Sillars put forward the true face of independence and not tied to one parties vision but an alternate vision of how our country would thrive after voting to be free. As we have said vote YES and we have OPTIONS, many, many options. Vote NO and we have none whatsoever and will be made to pay dearly for daring to even try be better than we are now. On the other hand we had the worst of an "Uncle Tom" looking to put the Scottish people in "our place" to tell us we aren't good enough and to trot out every single unionist slogan that have long since been discredited. George Galloway MP is so tied in knots with his supposed hatred of all things "British" but his bigger hatred of one man, his political superior in every way, Alex Salmond so much so that it is so obvious he ...
interesting quote I saw in one of my book blog's today: There is no "Racism" today as the word is defined. If you are "Racist" you believe you are superior to another based upon your genetic make up. What we have left today is "Cultural"" differences. If you want to get a good education, a good job, make responsible decisions and do not want to be bothered by the collective, you are "white", a *** *** or an "Uncle Tom". If you want to eschew the above list and be irresponsible, play the blame game, and look for handouts you are "Just Keeping it Real G". Your actual "color" has nothing to do with this nonsense anymore like in 1856 but your behavior does. Hate is what fuels the race baiters today as they profit from it. Until the profit for "Racism" goes away "Racism" never will. America today has more "Race" classes than Apartheid South Africa ever had. seems to have a ring of truth about it...

We do too! Love you all!

Today is Thursday, March 20, the 79th day of 2014. There are 286 days left in the year. Spring arrives at 12:57 p.m. EDT. Today's Highlight in History: On March 20, 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe's influential novel about slavery, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," was first published in book form after being serialized. On this date: In 1727, physicist, mathematician and astronomer Sir Isaac Newton died in London. In 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte returned to Paris after escaping his exile on Elba, beginning his "Hundred Days" rule. In 1922, the decommissioned USS Jupiter, converted into the first U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, was recommissioned as the USS Langley. In 1933, the state of Florida electrocuted Giuseppe Zangara for shooting to death Chicago Mayor Anton J. Cermak at a Miami event attended by President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt, the presumed target, the previous February. In 1952, the U.S. Senate ratified, 66-10, the Treaty of Peace with Japan.

Had such a great family reunion yesterday!It's been way too long sense we've seen each other. We ate some wonderful food that my mom and dad cooked, played some pool tournaments, dart games, the "claw machine", golf games, and some dodge ball toward the end between the boys. I love all you guys and can't wait until Christmas to see everyone again!

Every time I hear "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Warrant I think of a young Tony Morton banging out to it, circa 1992 or 1993 in his room. So much better than "Cherry Pie", should've been their first single. Probably the best hair metal song ever, RIP Jani Lane.
