Democratic lawmaker calls Justice Thomas, "Uncle Thomas"


quote:

A Democratic lawmaker from Minnesota criticized Tuesday’s Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act by calling Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Thomas,” then saying he didn’t know “Uncle Tom” was a racist epithet.

Harvard educated and didn't know "Uncle Tom" was offensive? Yeah okay...

I'm not even going to pretend that most liberals don't feel the same way as him....They see the ruling as an attack, and are very emotional about it.

They should be outraged. SCOTUS just took away a very powerful tool that they have been using to hang on to seats.

This is a good thing for America.

So dumb.

They should be happy that the fight against Jim Crow has been won.

This should be a happy day.

Sadly, intelligence is not always a product of the educational system.

So a white guy calls a black guy an Uncle Tom because he thinks the black guy is being racist against his own people. Then, the white guy retracts his statement and claims he's not racist because he doesn't have a full understanding of what an Uncle Tom is, even though he called someone an Uncle Tom. So this guy will get a free ride and someone like Trent Lott has to resign because he complimented an old man at a birthday party. Guess those R's and D's are the most important part of a person's character.

How does calling him "Uncle Thomas" even make sense unless you know what "Uncle Tom" means? Does he go around calling ppl he's upset with random family relationship titles?

I find it hard to believe a leftist would resort to race baiting, instead of arguing the merits of their stance.

If this was a Republican, he would be getting the Paula Deen treatment and run out of office.

Since he is a Democrat, the story will be ignored.

I had to laugh at one of our less educated posters who commented that he "will definitely vote for the Democrats in 2016 thanks to this decision."

I don't think he realizes that the Democrat Party, and their Jim Crow laws, is the entire reason we have the VRA.

In their bizarre form of "Animal Farm" reality, it is an indication of their character.
