Had an awesome dinner this eve made by Uncle Tom and Aunt Cindy! Fun to have the guys across the hall…
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 ...

I'm glad Juan Williams is upset by the racist "Uncle Tom" nonsense of the lefties, but he has defended some of these wackos in the past
We have the most ethnic slurs going on today then any other RACE of people. How a huge majority can blatantly call each other the N word in a conversation piece baffles the HECK out of me...All I can say is that ignorance has taken over a lot of potentially great minds...

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 . ...

It's me and Mr. Munchkin Man again tonight while Daddy, (Jason), is at school and Mommy, (Jessica) is at work and Uncle Kenny is at school and Grandpa Mike is working. Uncle Tom is home but downstairs working on something. I won't get much homework or taxes done until 8pm when he goes to bed, but it is okay he is worth it and I have tomorrow and Friday to do homework and taxes. I love him to pieces.
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...
Grandpa is holding his own. The preacher came and said a prayer for him. The whole family is here, Uncle Tom, Aunt Karen, Heidi Sexton, Tom Dennison, Marla Smith Dennison Kyle Dennison Jacob Dennison, Logan Sexton, Deb Jordan, Linda Windy Bileck Erica Jordan Hoskins, Cheyanne Renea Easley. Breathing getting more shallow by the minute. He sure is a tough old man! LOL. Continued prayers please. And thanks to all that have visited today! He knows you were here and appreciates it! We do too! Love you all!
The clock expires. Uncle Tom smiles, saunters slowly into the basement as his hand rolled cigarette gingerly hangs from his lips.

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.

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. In 1964, Irish poet, author and playwright Brendan Behan, 41, died in Du ...

The Book That Helped End Slavery: Sometimes printed words affect history. One of those times came in March 1852 with the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a novel Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote to call attention to the evils of slavery. The book hit America like an earthquake. Written at a time when the Fugitive Slave Law lacerated consciences throughout the North, it created unforgettable characters such as poor Eliza, the young slave woman who races across the frozen Ohio River toward freedom, clutching her infant at her breast. Stowe took care to depict Southern slave owners with charity. She showed them trapped in a system they did not devise. The worst villain of the book is the vicious plantation owner Simon Legree, a transplanted Yankee. Even so, many Southerners reacted with rage. The book was banned in many Southern communities. In our time “Uncle Tom” has become a term of abuse, referring to a black man who is obsequious toward whites. But Stowe’s Uncle Tom is a dignified, courageous man wh ...
Your Great Aunt Barbara & Uncle Tom went there & brought me back a thermal mug of Bryce Canyon.U can have it.
Man Im looking at all these Uncle Tom self hating, fake wannabe *** wearing green beads, green clothes, green makeup, shoes etc. Some of you have the nerve to go to bars partying and drinking green beer for a so called Saint of Irish independence. Did you know that many of the Slave Masters were Irish. That's were you got your last name from. During Black History month we cant even find you scared to death ***
Black History Moment! Josiah Henson fled slavery in Maryland in 1830 and later founded a settlement in Ontario, Canada, for other black citizens who had escaped. His autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself (1849), is believed to have been Harriet Beecher Stowe's inspiration for the main character in Uncle Tom's Cabin.
was Malcolm X racist because he was fond of using the term 'Uncle Tom'?

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.

It was all delicious. Now I am in my jammies, kicked back in my recliner catching up on my DVR. Its back to work tomorrow.
When I was a young kid I remember my Grandpa Fay Warren taking me to pick Goose Berries at my great great uncle Tom Overacre near the square. I remember Uncle Tom having possibly a 2 story white house.

Congressman on why he called Justice Clarence Thomas an 'Uncle Tom'
AN incompetent RACIST Democrap from an unimportant state recently called Justice Clarence Thomas an "Uncle Tom". They did the same to Michael Steele when He ran for Senate from Marylnad. The problem in Maryland is that the majority of democraps are uninformed and ignorant party line believers regardless of what they are told or see. The problem in this case was the *** had no clue what an "Uncle Tom refers to. This is so common in the leftist party thanks to the loser leader who blames all of his failures on RASCISM. Justice Thomas was active in the Civil Rights Movement, Helped Establish the Black Student Union at Holy Cross College and like a very dear friend of mine wnet to Yale Law School. Ne served as Chairman of the EEOC He served as a US Circuit Court Judge. His only fault in the eyes of the nameless one is he is conservative and voted against the failed Affirmative Action Plan. The democraps are hitting a new low in populsarity for job success and stupidity.
Thanks for bringing DJANGO UNCHAINED, easily one of the bravest films of the last twenty years. Quentin Tarantino’s penchant for violence is finally put to good use. DJANGO is brilliant, unflinching in its portrayal of sadistic southern slave-owners. Nor does the film shy away from intra-racial violence. The symbolism of the blood spattering over cotton was breathtaking. The spaghetti western motifs work amazingly well: speed zooms; cheesy soundtrack; slo-mo entrances; panoramic vistas. The performances were over-the-top, worthy of Sergio Leone. And what gutsy performances: Jamie Foxx’s gunslinger is the toughest since Clint Eastwood—Oscar-worthy in all regards. Leonardo DiCaprio was the sleaziest villain south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Samuel L. Jackson was almost unrecognizable as an Uncle Tom-like house slave. The irony of a German bounty hunter teaching a slave to be more humane could not have been lost on fans of Tarantino’s last film, INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. This film should have immediately won ...

Additionally, I would also like to spread awareness to cease and decist all forms of nasty twerking videos by African American females. If you see any nasty African American females partaking in such heathen activities please be sure to slap them *** behalf of Martin Luther King JR, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Susan B Anthony and Uncle Tom. Kind Regards, James "Jimmy" Russell.

My heart has broken again tonight but I’m trying to be strong and know that my beloved Uncle Tom has joined my Dad many other loved ones in Heaven. There is No More Pain for him, only for us here on Earth and even thought I have lost an Uncle, My Mom (Toots Pundy Marohn) has lost her Brother, Auntie Phyl (Phyllis Oliver) has lost her Husband & Best Friend, My cousins Tommy & Pam Oliver Butterfield have lost their Dad which is way more heartbreaking than what I’m feeling. I pray that they feel the love and support from all their friends and family during this very tough time. For those of you who have been following my posts, Norm’s brother also passed away yesterday. Please continue to Pray for my Mom & Norm as they both are dealing with the loss of their brothers.

That's right, if you mangle with blacks, you're not welcome back. And, If you associate with whites, you lose your stripes. Black History Month paint the pitcher we hear in this country and live by. If you're a democrat and white, you are the enemy with conservative devils. The Muppet, Herman Cain and Uncle Judge Clarence Thomas, rightly so has been tag as two well know Uncle Tom's. Surely them two have lost there stripes. Thurgood Marshall never did.

Ok. We were having a discussion about the sexual assault allegations being faced by Dr. Bill Cosby and the term "Uncle Tom" came up. I believe Curtis Edge Collin bought it up. I value all of my friends opinions, but this is my rebuttal. Dr Cosby isn't an Uncle Tom. He has made statements directed toward the black community. But those statements aren't those made by uncle toms. If any in the black community are uncle toms then we can look no further than people such as Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, Dewayne Carter, Drake, Nicki Minaj, everyone in mainstream hip hop that makes songs glorifying drug dealing, misogyny, and violence against other males in the same communities. Telling black people where we're going wrong and what we need to do to try to fix it doesn't make anyone an Uncle Tom. The uncle toms are the black police officers and judges who benefit from using young black and Latino males to feed the prison industrial complex. The black officers in the armed forces who send young black and Latino males to ...

RANDOM TIDBITS Emily Dickinson wrote 1,700 poems. Seven were published in her lifetime. Charles Dickens always slept facing north. He thought it improved your writing. Ernest Hemingway rewrote the final page of A Farewell to Arms 39 times. The first novel ever written on a typewriter was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. First American novel to sell more than a million copies: Uncle Tom's Cabin. In 1879, while on his honeymoon, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Travels with a Donkey.
tell me was it a hoax for slave masters to use black children as alligator bait? was that a lie? if the oppressor can feed black children to alligators why wouldn't they write a book on how to control the slaves? the Willie Lynch letter is too real. go check out the movie goodbye Uncle Tom. our story is written in the scriptures.
Sheri Bailey(LinkedIn) Community Organizer at Hampton Roads, VA wrote: The 1852 publication of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" changed the American mindset about slavery. Up until then most Americans were not affected by slavery and had no direct knowledge of this cancer within the nation. Less than 10 years later the official Civil War took place (1861-1865) and "legalized" slavery ended with the passage of the 13th, 14th & 15th amendments by 1870. In the 21st century let's use the film "12 Years a Slave" and the true life book that it was based on to start a new conversation about how to eradicate the legacy of slavery. Screenings and discussions can be held in our churches, civic leagues, HBCU's, etc.
Hey Don Lemon; CNN's Uncle Tom: You're defending the Samuel L Jackson-Lawrence Fishburne mix-up because "people of the same race share similar features"... What similar features between these two men can you possibly muster up apart from their skin color??? And even THAT is starkly different!
An Alabama Democrat slammed United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Tuesday, first saying he didn't like the justice because he was married to a white woman and going on to call him an "Uncle Tom."
This forum is not about fact I"m pretty tired of all racial issues.but I can't ignore what just happened in Alabama. Alvin Holmes, an African American legislator who ran roughshod over the statehouse for years until the Republicans kicked him to the curb in the last election, just insulted Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to the max. It appears that Holmes dislikes Thomas because he "has a white wife", and he's an "Uncle Tom". I keep in mind that Holmes has a lot of hot air in that Michelin Man body, and his perceived IQ is rarely above freezing. He's thoroughly embarrassed this state on more than one occasion.but this time he's setting records. The reality is that people like Holmes are much akin to the RINOs in the Republican Party. They are desperate. Their old tactics are outdated, and now they are reaching a point of total insignificance.frankly, it's scaring the crap out of them. If Holmes, Jackson, Sharpton, and the NAACP can't play the race card, they might as well go to the nursing h ...

Question? Why is it that an African American conservative man is called an 'Uncle Tom' and an African American liberal isn't called a communist? One stands up for individual freedom and one stands up for a communal, government controlled populace. Hmmm. Your decision. I think I'll go with the conservative American! No other labels need to apply!
"Uncle Tom" utilizes imagery of slavery to make people feel bad for having differing views. Liberals who use that term are a disgrace.
Using terms like "Uncle Tom" to describe conservative African-Americans is disgusting, and only exacerbates the race problem.

‘PINK’ AND ‘BROWN’ PEOPLE: SOME THOUGHTS ON RACISM (II) In Acts 11:3, certain of the Jerusalem brethren were upset with Peter because he had socialized with the Gentiles. Later on, because he apparently feared this powerful group, Peter failed to eat or socialize with the Gentiles, and it was necessary for Paul to withstand him to his face because he was to be blamed (Gal 2:11). Notice, if you will, that Peter was not refusing to have fellowship with the Gentile Christians in the assemblies of the church, but he was refusing to eat or socialize with them. According to Paul, Peter “walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel” in this matter (Gal 2:14). If it was wrong for Peter to refuse to socialize with people because of their racial background almost two thousand years ago, what makes anyone think racial discrimination could be right when engaged in by Christians today? But Prejudice Isn’t Just A White Man’s Sin, Either Years ago (I’m talking very early 1970s), while in c ...
My roommate brings up racial topics. But because I'm not an Uncle Tom and don't agree right away its a problem.

As I watched Sophie go into school this morning all dressed in her party dress, with gifts for teacher, cards to pass out, and her valentine mailbox in tow, before me flashed the memory of 2 other little girls Kathy all dressed as a Valentine card, black shoes, white socks with red hearts sewn up the sides, red short overalls, white shirt and a huge red heart made of poster board draped over her shoulders , the hugest smile. then I saw a beautiful red woolen coat passed down from Mary Ann, a beautiful red dress with a pinafore white with red hearts made by Aunt Nellie, with cup cakes and cards, and Mrs. Wright my kindergarten teacher in her beautiful blue dress and a red carnation pinned to her collar. And I thought How lovely it would be to be sitting at the table with my mom, dad, aunt Nellie, uncle tom listening to stories of the old times and then it hit me.I am the old times now.   10% Off

A day after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told an audience of college students that the country focuses too much on race, an Alabama Democrat State Representative took to the House floor to first criticize Thomas’ interracial marriage, and then call him “Uncle Tom.” Thomas, the second black justice to serve on the court, told students at Palm Beach Atlantic University that people people are much more hyper race- and difference-conscious today than they were in the pre-Civil Rights era in Savannah, Georgia. He said he has experienced poorer treatment and discrimination on account of his race in the North than in the South. “The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites. The absolute worst I have ever been treated,” Thomas said. “The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.”
Hey guys! Happy Valentines Day or almost Valentines Day! Anyways, we have a meeting tomorrow at The Coffee House on 1324 P St..

Smith, unless we want to read Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard next since we are behind. Sadly I won't be there but I hope the meeting goes great!

Anyone else feel like they have fallen down the rabbit hole? -Doubles luge athletes are complaining about the depiction of their sport by the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion ad which was protesting the policy of the Russian government (anyone want to get in the pool of how long it will be before "Tea Party types" are blamed for the whole controversy...I have two days, three hours...and I am guessing Huffington Post will be the source...or Nancy Pelosi) -Democratic Congressman Alvin Holmes, in hearings on land surveying has been reported as saying that he doesn't like Clarence Thomas because Thomas is married to a white is then reported that he later clarified his statement, making it clear that "some people" didn't like Clarence Thomas for that reason...but that he didn't like him because CT is an "Uncle Tom" Can we please get this country back to a point where I could watch a Flip Wilson episode without wondering if I am being politically incorrect?
BIRTHDAY TIMELINE AGE 5-Attended Kindergarten at Worth Academy where I met the greatest of friends and had awesome experiences with "the crew". Graduated with that same group at Tiftarea Academy in 1992. AGE 10-Fell off the monkey bars and suffered a concussion. Also, jumped out of the swings backwards and broke my arm. Rough year at school! AGE 15-Decided to stay out all night with a group of friends. Ended up on the police scanner (APB) which my granny and papa just happened to own and kept running full blast in their bedroom. Eventually was rescued by my Uncle Tom (police chief at the time) at 5:30 in the morning, still "three sheets to the wind." Most embarassing moment of my life!! AGE 20-Attended George C. Wallace Community College in Dothan, Alabama where I met the love of my life and the man I would eventually marry! AGE 25-Moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and became the Special Events Director for a nationally accredited Recreation Department (BREC). I have so many memories from my job and the spe ...

With the passing of Karen's Aunt Edythe, I want to share one of my favorite stories... When I met my new Aunt, Aunt Edythe, she was married to Tom Friedman. Many of you may remember him as Uncle Tom Friedman, owner of Echo Hill Camp (and father to Kinky Friedman). As a multi-year camper at Echo Hill, I was very fond of Uncle Tom. Upon marrying Karen, I gained Aunt Edythe, and for a brief time, my camp Uncle Tom was my real Uncle Tom. That is all.

African American History...Our history and the history of our struggle means a lot to so many, however, we can never forget the struggles and support of the many non-black supporters who helped African Americans in our cause of regaining freedom, justice and equality... What famous white people are remembered for disavowing slavery or dying themselves to further freedom for all? These are our brothers and sisters of Faith! Just like many of us hate the Iraq war but we are part of it, like it or not, it colors us, shapes us and makes us who we are -whether we are for it or not...there must have been a considerable number of white people who should be remembered for helping to bring an end to slavery. Here are just a few examples for your reading pleasure... 1. Harriet Beecher Stowe - Harriet Beecher Stowe was a writer and anti-slavery campaigner. She is best known for her book 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' This was a vivid depiction of slavery and its human cost. It was influential in shaping public opinion about sl ...
This racial crap has got to come to an end there are many black people out there that feel just the way I do but the racial dividers like Sharpton and Jackson will not let that happen for if we get along they're out of a job that's the only thing they know. there is very little dialogue between races and if a black man shows any sign of being a conservative he is immediately attacked and branded as an Uncle Tom. we can get along I know this from the time I spent in the service most of my best friends were black and we shared stories we had dialogue my all time favorite commander was Fulton A Kemp we could call him captain midnight and his lieutenant lieutenant Twilight and nobody got mad one of my all time favorite people was WO Roland Clark a korean war veteran. we have the same fears the same love the same hate the same problems why can't we get along? I'll tell you why we can't get along it's because people make money off of dividing us elections are won and lost because of this dividing of races.we ca ...

REALITY CHECK✔✔✔: BLACK CAPITALISTS(RICH MEN) WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY: There are times when our hoods will unite with Black Capitalists, like against police murder and brutality or like the Trevon Martin case, but we bring different ideological and political lines to these struggles. These lines will be in conflict. Some white radicals will tail after these Black Capitalists... and the Capitalists will encourage this and exploit it playing on their white guilt and middle class guilt. They can be all rude and arrogant with them and they will take it because they are afraid of being called "racist." Just they called you an "Uncle Tom." It is a bullying tactic, just like the white nationalists call people "race traitors." But you cannot validate Black Capitalists without validating white Capitalists.! One feeds the other, because they are in fundamental unity.! The Black Capitalist is an appendage of the White Monopoly Capitalist ruling class...!!! It would like to be independent, but it can't be.! ...
My Black History Honoree for today is Mr. Richard Nathaniel Wright. He was an African American author who often wrote of the plight of African Americans during the late 19th to mid 20th centuries. Richard Wright wrote novels, short stories, and poems that caused controversy because of the racial themes the writings explored. Some of his most famous works are "Uncle Tom's Children" and "Native Son". Wright won several honors and accolades. Of his awards, the most prestigious was the Spingarn Medal that he won in 1941 for noteworthy achievement by an African American. We thank you Mr. Wright, for your brilliance and your works!! "Write" on Mr. Wright!!
Did You Know: The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a railroad. It got its name because its activities had to be carried out in secret, using darkness or disguise, and because railway terms were used by those involved with system to describe how it worked. Various routes were lines, stopping places were called stations, those who aided along the way were conductors and their charges were known as packages or freight. The network of routes extended through 14 Northern states and “the promised land” of Canada--beyond the reach of fugitive-slave hunters. Those who most actively assisted slaves to escape by way of the “railroad” were members of the free black community (including former slaves like Harriet Tubman), Northern abolitionists, philanthropists and church leaders like Quaker Thomas Garrett. Harriet Beecher Stowe, famous for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, gained firsthand knowledge of the plight of fugitive slaves through contacts with the Underground Railroad in Cincinnati, Ohio ...
The obstacles we are facing are insurmountable to clarify this and elaborate i just want to simply say that there is no way possible to function in this country without technology. To function we have to have our phone, our computer, our stove, refrigerator, etc. This was all a means of control. Now the more time progresses jobs are harder to come by as well as money. More and more we are becoming dependent on the government for welfare in the form of food, healthcare, housing, etc the basic necessities of life. In 2016 when Obama leaves office things will become 10 times harder. Obama is the Uncle Tom president and the fall guy that will be blamed largely for the continual downward spiril. Social unrest will ensue tighter government controls will continually get worse and with tighter government control those who dissent in anyway shape or form will be Enemys of the state. We have lost our way we no longer know how to farm to grow our food, our family ties have been severed, and trust and loyalty ...

For whatever reason the name stepin fetchit came across my mind so I decided to read a little bit about him finally, this is what I found... Stepin Fetchit, an infamous Uncle Tom sellout!!! In the early 1930s he was the best known and most successful black actor working in Hollywood. At a time when contracts for Black actors were unheard of, Fetchit was signed, then dropped, then spectacularly re-signed by Fox Pictures. From 1929 to 1935, he appeared in some twenty-six films. Often working in as many as four movies at a time, Fetchit was the first Black actor to received featured billing, and special scenes were often written into pictures for him. He popularized the dim-witted, tongue-tied stammer and the phenomenal slow-lazyman shuffle. Fox Pictures, in promoting their first black star, did much to exploit his private life. With Fetchit's own penchant for generating news, stories circulated of his flamboyant high style of life: his six houses, his sixteen Chinese servants, his lavish parties, his twelve ...

After the age of about eight, when we moved to the great state of Texas from Mexico, I grew up in a heavily Mexican community in Brownsville, Tx. The only racial stereotypes I grew up around were *** and such. It's ironic that other kids of Mexican heritage called me *** especially since a good number of them were born in Mexico while I was born in Texas. But I digress. It wasn't until high school that I began to hear stereotypes about other racial groups. For whatever reason, I have never cared to think in racial terms. Sometimes I get caught up in it but I try not to. It really isn't productive. Not the way most people, regardless of racial or ethnic heritage, talk about racial stuff. Because of my political views, some people think I am the Mexican version of an Uncle Tom! And, of course, that's not racist, right? Here's the purpose of this post. 1) I don't think racial issues are America's biggest problem. Racial issues ARE a big problem but not the biggest. 2) The bigger problem is people wh ...
Liberals call conservative Senator Tim Scott an Uncle Tom, he responds with pure class
I think Millard Fillmore and Franklin Pierce are overlooked by history because the events of the decade in which these men served contained events so momentous and so close together that the events eclipsed the men. First you had the Compromise of 1850 with California coming into the rush anyone? Then the stinging indictment of slavery by the publication of the anti-slavery book, Uncle Tom's Cabin (best seller here and in Europe 1852) which really angered southerners. In 1854 we had the Kansas Nebraska Act and the mini Civil War in Kansas which angered both north and south. In 1856 we got concerned about a split in the Whig Party over slavery and the emergence of the anti Slavery Republican Party. In 1858 Lincoln and Douglas debated six times in Illinois over who would be elected to the US Senate from Illinois. The debate centered again on the spread of slavery. In 1860 Lincoln ran for president and won...a Republican...he must be against slavery...and before he could take office in 1861, el ...

You see, women have been essential to every great move of God. Yes, Moses led the Isaelites out of Egypt, but only after his mother risked her life to save him! Closer to our time, Clara Barton was instrumental in starting the Red Cross. Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin put fire into people's heart to end slavery in the United States. Rosa Parks kicked the Civil Rights movement into gear with her quiet act of courage. Eunice Kennedy Shriver created the Special Olympics. Mother Teresa inspired the world by bringing love to countless thought unlovable. And millions of other women quietly change the world every day by bringing the love of God to those around them. - from the book Captivating Stasi and John Eldredge

December 27th, we celebrate the life and times of Clementine Hunter (December 27, 1886 – January 1, 1988); a self-taught African-American folk artist from the Cane River region in Louisiana. She was born on a plantation said to be the inspiration for Uncle Tom's Cabin worked as a farm hand, never learning to read or write. When in her fifties, she began painting, using brushes and paints left by an artist who visited Melrose Plantation, where she lived and worked. Hunter's artwork depicted plantation life in the early 20th century, documenting a bygone era. She first sold her paintings for as little as 25 cents. By the end of her life, her work was being exhibited in museums and sold by dealers for thousands of dollars. Hunter was granted an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree by Northwestern State University of Louisiana in 1986. Hunter was the granddaughter of a slave, born just two decades after the American Civil War. She was the eldest of seven children to Creole parents at Hidden Hill Plantation, ...

Re-Writing the Human Race Ben Hur and Messala - Female to male. The history of female on earth. AZR Ben Hur Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is a novel by Lew Wallace published on November 12, 1880 by Harper & Brothers. Considered "the most influential Christian book of the nineteenth century", it was the best-selling American novel from the time of its publication, superseding Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852). It remained at the top until the publication of Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind (1936). Following release of the 1959 MGM film adaptation of Ben-Hur, which was seen by tens of millions and won 11 Academy Awards in 1960, book sales surpassed Gone with the Wind. Blessed by Pope Leo XIII, the novel was the first work of fiction to be so honored. The story recounts the adventures of Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish prince and merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 1st century. Judah's childhood friend Messala returns home as an ambitious commanding officer of the Roman legions. They c ...

Today In Black History Sorry I am late.. HBD Flo Joe..and Josh Gibson • December 21, 1872 Robert Scott Duncanson, landscape painter, died. Duncanson was born in 1821 in Seneca County, New York and went to live with his father in Canada as a young boy. He returned to the United States in 1841 with a desire to be an artist and taught himself by painting portraits and copying prints. Duncanson traveled the world in pursuit of his art and in 1845 moved to Detroit, Michigan. In 1846, the Detroit Daily Advertiser praised Duncanson for his skill and color usage, adding “Mr. Duncanson deserves, and we trust will receive the patronage of all lovers of the fine arts.” With the onset of the Civil War, Duncanson exiled himself to Canada and the United Kingdom where his work was well received and the London Art Journal declared him a master of landscape painting. His paintings “Drunkard’s Plight” (1845), “At the Foot of the Cross” (1846), and “Uncle Tom and Little Eva” (1853) are in the collection ...
Have the Talk of a Lifetime You can have the talk of a lifetime with anyone you hold dear – your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, a spouse. It can happen anywhere you and your loved one are most comfortable – over a meal, at home, on a walk, while playing a game. The talk can be between you and your loved one, or you could include others, like family or friends. Your conversation can take place at any time – not just at the end of life. Sometimes using a visual prompt, such as a photo album, souvenir or memento, can be a great way to start a conversation. Memorable locations, such as the church where your loved one was married or a favorite park can also help someone begin to open up and share their story. A conversation may start this way: “Mom, I’ve always liked this photo of you and Uncle Tom. Tell me about when it was taken.” “I know grandpa taught you to fish on Lake Okoboji. Do you remember the first fish you caught?” “Honey, I know you and your friends always hung out at Benn ...

December 20, 2013 Quote of the Day "In things pertaining to enthusiasm, no man is sane who does not know how to be insane on proper occasions." – Henry Ward Beecher About Henry Ward Beecher The liberal American minister Henry Ward Beecher was a great orator, an advocate of women's suffrage, and a staunch abolitionist. He raised funds before the Civil War to buy rifles to fight against slavery; these guns became known as "Beecher's Bibles." He was born in 1813 in Connecticut; among his eight siblings was Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. His immense popularity waned only slightly after he was accused of adultery; the trial ended in a hung jury, and he was ultimately acquitted. He died in 1887.

Facts about the First 9 : The club was formed in 1967 by John Teller and Piermont "Piney" Winston, following their return from service as paratroopers during the Vietnam War.. *It wasn't until after Gemma Teller, John's wife, became pregnant with her first son, Thomas, that they decided to settle in Charming, the town where Gemma grew up *John Teller thought Charming was a little too cute for a charter name, so he called the charter the Redwood Originals. * The first charter was founded in Charming, California and originally had only nine members, the other seven being Wally Grazer, Thomas "Uncle Tom" Whitney, Chico Villenueva, Lenny "The Pimp" Janowitz, Clay Morrow, Keith McGee and Otto "L'il Killer" Moran. Six of these were war veterans. * The club was originally formed as a form of social rebellion for men who simply wanted freedom and no longer wished to live by society's rules. They also tried to protect the people of Charming from outside gangs and drug dealers, rather than exploit them.
"...the heart has no tears to give, — it drops only blood, bleeding itself away in silence.” ― Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin
Visit the house where Harriet Beecher Stowe would heard stories of slavery that became part of Uncle Tom's Cabin:
he said that to Harriet Beecher Stowe ((who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin)) when he met her
Really like the new challenge to name 10 books that have had an affect on your life. Could surely name more, but I'll spare you. 1. The Bible 2. 1984, George Orwell 3. Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Bronte 4. Lord of the Flies, William Golding 5. Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison 6. White Teeth, Zadie Smith 7. Laura Ingalls Wilder books-when I really fell in love with reading! 8. Uncle Remus, Joel Chandler Harris 9. Paradise Lost, John Milton-okay, it's not a book but an epic poem. Still, profound effect on me 10. Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe Wonder what it says about me that at least 3 of my most influential reads are on banned lists...?
after Uncle Tom's Cabin was published. My uncle Thompson pimped Harriet Beecher Stowe for how she demeaned his character.
Literally the ONLY thing I know in APUSH is that Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. This is a problem.
Masupatsila march to the Mandela House in Vilakazi Str. Will start @ 13h00 from Uncle Tom's Hall near the Hector Peterson Memorial.
Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly Harriet by tenpennygray via
"(Cover:)* U.S. Consul General Herbert G. Reiner Jr. reported in an ironic comment on September 13, 1968: “Citizens Action Committee members inaugurated their campaign against the government’s relocation of non-Europeans with the distribution of thousands of pamphlets and posters bearing Prime Minister John Vorster’s picture under the ironic heading ‘You Must Not Try To Take a Man’s Home Away From Him’,” which Vorster had stated in defense of white property rights (Reel 8, Frame 0173)." (I just found this declassified information, or a way to get to it today: the info on my uncle's (consular) service (in Johannesburg) was kept out of sight & circulation, except what we gathered for obituary articles in 1999 (& got published here & there in local papers in Spring of 2000). For me this is very exciting, because career diplomats like my Uncle Tom (H.R., Jr.) were often fighting a dangerous & uphill battle, when their assigned missions were thwarted by political appointees, who were too often .. ...
i'll never forget when in dance lessons we had to do the EXTREMELY RACIST Uncle Tom's Cabin dance from "The King and I"
Why am I confused with Duke having a black QB? Realized that I stereotype my own people. Feel like Jalen Rose calling Grant Hill an Uncle Tom.

Uncle Tom's funeralcwas gloomy, to say the least. Or so I heard, anyway; I don't attend funerals that don't play "Electric Funeral" or assorted funeral doom songs (come on, it's the perfect opportunity for that). Staying home didn't make me feel bad, though, as I kept watch over the computer while my mother was away. It's not a glorious job, but somebody's gotta do it. Work the next weekend was rough. Everyone there would stare at me with a sad look on their faces, and it took me several hours to realize it wasn't because they disliked my Shrinebuilder shirt. At least Lyla appeared more at ease than our last encounter. Nervously, I approached her to apologize for my faux pas a few days before when I broke several objects in her house before storming out and wailing like Charles Manson caught in a rat trap. "Hey, Lyla," I commenced with a wave. "I'm sorry about the way I acted the other day at your place." "No, don't apologize," she denied, shaking her head and hands. "You were in a sensitive situation, an ...
Another interesting tidbit of family history -- Mom's uncle, James Thomas Thornton, lived in New York for awhile and kept General Patton's dogs & horses at a hunt club. while Patton went off to wore. Uncle Tom and his wife named their daughter Beatrice after Patton's wife.
Third-Party Politicians Thought only to exist in legend. Never win anything. Winning is downright alien to them. Nader gets a high from losing his elections. He ensured he would lose the next few by referring to Barack Obama as 'Uncle Tom.'

I think the GOP definitely should nominate Ben Carson for president so we can finally put the whole "racist" lie to bed. But then liberals think if you are a black Conservative you are an Uncle Tom, so they would still hurl their accusations. But at least we could hurl them back if they opposed President Carson!!
To paraphrase Darth Vader "The Uncle Tom is strong in ". Comparing 1st Black President to Crackhead?. WOW.
SHONDA's views on Race part 2: Black & White remains a big issue today. If you hang around/ fall in love with the opposite you are called Uncle Tom( I was called because the majority of my friends are white) or a "N" lover. SLAVERY is still a big issue today. I am gonna give you something to think about. Who helped slaves escape using the Underground Railroad system? White people( putting themselves in danger). Who fought a whole war (alongside blacks) and died so you can be free? White people and didn't give up until the war was won.Who put laws into place so you can vote, be served in the same restaurant, have the same education, implement laws to protect you from the KKK, marched alongside DR. MLK, fought in Government offices, defended you against unjust acts in the courtroom? WHITE PEOPLE. So like the saying goes.. There is good and bad in every race. I just choose to embrace the good. How can you show love when you have filled your spirit/ being with the bad? I know somebody thought I was important ...
Alan West you Uncle Tom how dare you you pig go back to church and try to become a "REAL CHRISTIAN'" YOU ***
In what alternate universe is this OK? The black-nationalist Department of Homeland Security employee who was placed on leave almost four months ago for running a website that espouses the mass murder of whites and blacks has still not been fired, an agency spokesperson told National Journal. The Southern Poverty Law Center first exposed Ayo Kimathi in August, prompting a small media firestorm that led DHS to place the procurement officer on administrative leave with pay pending review. DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed that his status has not changed and that he is still on leave pending review. Kimathi, using the online nom de guerre "the Irritated Genie," called for "ethnic cleansing" of "black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors" on his website, which envisioned a massive race war on the horizon. "In order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites—more than our Christian hearts can possibly count," he wrote. In other postings, he wa ...

It's Veteran's Day and I'm thinking about the men in my life and family who have served. My great grandfather John Grode served in WW II and I think WW I as well. I'm not certain. I would have to ask my mother, Karen Leonard. My father served in the Army for over 20 years. That's him when he was a young guy with my mom. It's the only picture I have of him in that uniform. LOL. He was an old combat engineer and spent a lot of time here at Fort Leonard Wood. Then there's my honey, Patrick Sanders, who also served. There is also two of Patrick's brothers, my Uncle Jack, my Uncle Tom, and I believe my grandaddy. A lot of military men in my family. Thanks to them and men like them, we have the best fighting force in the world. They represent men from all walks of life, multiple generations, different branches of the military, and a diverse group of jobs within their service. They were engineers, cooks, weathermen, members of the Army Band, infantry men, etc. Today I'm thankful for these men and the rest of our ...
Went to see "THE BUTLER" last night. Absolutely fantastic. Brilliant acting. Terrible apartheid system in the States too, they just never labelled it. They had Bathrooms for "Whites" and Bathrooms for "Coloured" peeople. Shocking what went on. I remember seeing the film "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as a child of about 7 (never forgot it), I dont think that film ever showed in S.Africa. Oprah Winfrey was fabulous as was Forrest Whittaker. The entire cast was brilliant. Dont miss this film.
Uncle Tom's hub is alive & well in the Miami Dolphins' Locker room. In what world would a rational Black Man give some white boy the thumbs up to say the N word. How stupid they are. Last thing. I do think Martin Luther King' non violent approach to being treated needs to be embraced by those who think Martin should have resulted to violence. If he had he'd be worse than that stupid white boy who's name will never appear on my computer. Hope they get the s--- kicked out of them the rest of this season and many to come. ps dolphin players put the white boy in the hood and let him say the N word. These *** black players trying to make the white boy a victim here. Shame on them all...
Just got back from the wedding of Alyson Newby and Ken Kingery in Virginia. Patti and I generally don't do weddings, but Alyson and her sister Ellen Newby grew up next door, so we couldn't miss it. Turned out to be the most profoundly moving ceremonies we've ever attended. We both wish them a lifetime of happiness! In driving down we also enjoyed several days of touring the country and exploring my family's history. Visited the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati and the Ripley, Ohio home of abolitionist clergyman and close family friend John Rankin (he inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to write "Uncle Tom's Cabin"). After that went down to Carlisle, Kentucky where the family were early settlers with Daniel Boone, no less, and where they became abolitionists themselves, their home being located on the overland route taken by slaves being marched down to principal slave market in Natchez (before the Louisiana Purchase). After the wedding we took a spin through Appomattox where Havilah's cousin Orville . ...

I just stopped to speak to a WWII veteran who fought on Okinawa. He told me he has always been a democrat, will always be a democrat and that Lindsey Graham is doing a good job. Then he called Tim Scott an Uncle Tom, right to my face! I'm still in shock.

Uncle Tom has gotten a bad rap. In the book, he was heroic. on
"Truth to Power" as my big brother Tucker likes to say. "12 Years a Slave" was intense and powerful in its truthfulness. America's darkest moment that still resonates today. Director Steve McQueen never runs from filming the real cruelty of the business of slavery. The mental anguish of having families torn apart. The almost daily beatings for minor infractions based on arbitrary rules. I always thought much of the cruelty during slavery was a result of White fear of an uprising (there were over 250 revolts during slavery), but there seem to be more of a sadistic quality to the cruelty in this film. Chiwetel Ejiofor was a marvel as Solomon Northup. The movie was based on Northup's memoir "12 Years a Slave" which was published two years before "Uncle Tom's Cabin" the seminal book of the period, by Harriet Beecher Stowe. If not for the efforts of British filmmaker Steve McQueen, Solomon Northup's story may have never been told. Few American movies have dealt with the subject because of its unsavory nature a ...
Went to see 12 Years A Slave last night...very powerful and moving. Solomon Northrup published a book about his experience as a slave in 1853, right after Harriet Beecher Stowe did Uncle Tom's Cabin. Northrup's book was a best seller at the time, according to Wikipedia, but, "After several editions in the 19th Century, the book fell into obscurity for nearly 100 years, until it was re-discovered by two Louisiana historians, Dr. Sue Eakin (Louisiana State University at Alexandria) and Dr. Joseph Logsdon (University of New Orleans).[2] In the early 1960’s they researched and retraced Solomon Northup’s journey[3] and co-edited a historically annotated version that was published by LSU Press in 1968. [4] A 2013 film based on the story and directed by Steve McQueen was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures on October 18, 2013. Wow, that took a long time. I wonder why. Most revealing, I think, and maybe not well-known, is the part about how Solomon came to be kidnapped into slavery in the first place - unscr ...
