    Why is a black republican automatically a "tom"?

    From Dictionary.com

    I think that definition pretty well fits the majority, though not all, of black Republicans.

    Why can't a black man just be a republican because he agrees with their platform?

    Welp

    That’s pretty sad. I could never vote for or against someone because of their skin color.

    But at least he admitted he did not agree with him on any issues 

    Why do you even respond to such dimwitted statements? :confused:

    Because if they continue to be espoused unchecked, eventually people will take them at face value.

    Pot calling the kettle black.

    To fit the definition of an "Uncle Tom" a black need only to be considered to be subservient to or to curry favor with whites. Like it or not, a man such as, for example, Clarence Thomas fits that interpretation.

    Christ, well, if this is where the left is at intellectually these days, the right's got a bright future ahead of it.

    Mods, are we really going to tolerate racialist trolling of this variety?
