That's reality connie. Those are real GOP voters talking at a real GOP rally.

You got caught lying on this thread with a bogus claim that you cannot back up about Dems calling black GOP members uncle toms...

You're a waste of time.

I was not lying about the "Uncle Tom" comment, I just can't recall the black conservative author's name and I'm just not feeling well enough today to search for the book just to satisfy YOU. One thing I will tell you is that had Obama ran under the Republican ticket, believe me the racist comments would have flown liberally from the so-called liberal Democrats.

Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss and when I was a Black Republican I heard it and know it.

She is telling the truth and I will testify to that. As a founding member of a Black Republican Chapter I can testify to it. I could tell tales but to do so would be to personal. I can also verify that Blacks who marry Whites also get called Uncle Toms by both Democratics and Republicans.

My God has the man forgotten what Clarence Thomas has and is still going through and putting up with? Right or wrong it is still being said.

Obama the 'Magic Negro' - Los Angeles Times
Obama's fame right now has little to do with his political record or what he's written in his two (count 'em) books, or even what he's actually said in those stem-winders. It's the way he's said it that counts the most. It's his manner, which, as presidential hopeful Sen. Joe Biden ham-fistedly reminded us, is "articulate." His tone is always genial, his voice warm and unthreatening, and he hasn't called his opponents names (despite being baited by the media).

Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn't project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.

Being David Ehrenstein
Wrote Open Secret: Gay Hollywood 1928-1998 (William Morrow, 1998)

Contributed to Los Angeles, Positif and New Times: Los Angeles.

Key article, Desert Fury, Mon Amour republished in Film Quarterly : Forty Years -- A Selection edited by Brian Henderson and Ann Martin (University of California Press, 1999)

Lecture appearances include: National Alliance of Media Arts Centers Conference, Atlanta Georgia 1988; College Art Association Conference, San Francisco, 1989; and National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association Conference, Miami Florida, 1996.

The above is a link to the original article Magic Negro that all of this came from. It is followed by a selection from the authors biography. What stereotypes and conclusions would you like to draw about his political affiliations and views? Would you then apply them to all groups and people of like persuasion like is being done about the Republican Party because of the actions of the one person who started it all?

clarence thomas uncle tom - Google Search

Here is a google hit on the topic and I will let readers judge for themselves if they have heard or read Clarence Thomas being called an Uncle Tom. I will let them measure their experiences against ours and reach their own conclusions.

Wow even Newt Gingrich gets it.


“This is so inappropriate that it should disqualify any Republican National Committee candidate who would use it.”
