June 19 is the premiere of "Uncle Tom," a documentary on which I am the executive producer. Through interviews with black conservatives, some well-known and some not, the film asks a simple question: Why are independent-thinking blacks, who believe in limited government and personal responsibility, denounced as "sellouts" and "coons" and "Uncle Toms" by fellow blacks? 

One can agree or disagree about whether, and to what degree, today's problems in the black community can be traced to slavery and Jim Crow. But blacks who do not connect the serious problems in black urban America to Jim Crow and slavery are dismissed as "self-loathing." They are attacked, rarely with data, while having their character and very humanity questioned. Believing that fatherless homes, poor urban education and urban crime have less to do with the past and much more to do with the modern welfare state does not induce a healthy debate. It sparks anger and derision.

The movie "Uncle Tom" merely asks, "Why?"

This brings up Vice President Joe Biden's recent "you ain't black" statement. An interview between former Vice President Joe Biden and a popular black liberal radio host named Charlamagne tha God ended with the following exchange:

Joe Biden: "You got more questions but I tell ya, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."

Charlamagne tha God: "It don't have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact I want something for my community. I would love to see -- "

Biden: "Take a look at my record, man. I extended the voting rights 25 years. I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP has endorsed me every time I've run."

After Biden's claim that the "NAACP has endorsed me every time I've run," the president of the NAACP issued this statement: "We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level."

But what made the interview newsworthy was Biden's characterization that if a black person has a "problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Later that same day, he called his remarks "really unfortunate." "I shouldn't have been so cavalier in responding," said Biden. "No one should have to vote for any party based on their race or religion or background."

But why does Biden call his comment "unfortunate"? Democrat Identity Politics 101 dictate that Republican blacks lose their blackness, Republican women lose their gender and Republican Latinos cease being Latinos.

In 1993, feminist Gloria Steinem referred to Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kay Bailey Hutchison as a "female impersonator." In 1996, Californians voted to amend their state constitution to bar the use of race, ethnicity or gender in government hiring, government awarding of contracts and admission into public colleges and universities. No more affirmative action. University of California Regent Ward Connerly, the owner of a land-use planning company, led the fight for the ban even though, as a black man, he stood to benefit from contracts awarded on a race basis. He also happened to have a white wife. A Connerly opponent, black California lawmaker Diane Watson, later elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, said: "He's married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn't want to be black." Watson never apologized. In 2010, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK. Do I need to say more?"

In 2017, left-wing black commentator Marc Lamont Hill complained about the blacks present that President-elect Donald Trump chose to meet with. Hill said, "[It] was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo op for Donald Trump's exploitative campaign against black people." Last year, at the left-wing Netroots Nation conference, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said, "We don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice." She added, "We don't need any more black faces that don't want to be a black voice."

Neither Biden nor Pressley sees the irony in calling people insufficiently black when that very slander was used against their beloved Barack Obama. In 2000, Obama lost a U.S. House race against Rep. Bobby Rush, a former Black Panther, who portrayed Obama as an out-of-touch, Hawaiian-born, Harvard-educated Uncle Tom. An exasperated Obama said, "When Congressman Rush and his allies attack me for going to Harvard and teaching at the University of Chicago, they're sending a signal to black kids that if you're well-educated, somehow you're not 'keeping it real.'" Later, Obama would say: "There's no one way to be black. Take it from somebody who's seen both sides of debate about whether I'm black enough." Somebody tell Pressley and Biden.

Is Obama going to comment on Biden's "you ain't black" assertion? Maybe, on June 19, the Obamas and the Bidens can see "Uncle Tom" together and compare notes.

Yep....those ONLY 3 "token black" people. Why do dems call black people who dare vote Repub "Uncle Toms" or "Token black people"? Honest question. Seriously, why are they not allowed to vote or think opposite of what they are told? Yes, I know they CAN, but they are shunned if they do so. Honest question

Help?  Really?  Voter rights.  Anti-discrimination laws.  Etc-etc.  One can only do so much.  The rest falls upon acceptance, general good will and the political trajectory of the society.

This too, 'helping' is NOT the responsibility of the dems, that is the responsibility of all of us.

And yet the majority of black Americans vote Democrat and run as Democrats while the majority of white supremacists vote and run as Republicans. While the name "Democrat" has a long history, black Americans are not stupid so they vote for the party that addresses their needs and supports them when they run for elected office today. While some conservative bigots used to call themselves Democrats, after the majority of Democrats rose up and passed the civil rights act and voting rights act and a Democrat President signed them into law, conservative bigots have turned toward the Republican party for comfort and solace where they can continue to seethe with racist hate and support the least diverse and most white political party in America.

Regardless of party, conservatives have the longest history of trying to "conserve" the status quo of slavery, to conserve the status quo of segregation, to conserve the vote for white males only, to conserve the status quo of interracial marriage bans, to conserve gay marriage bans. The party of conservatives today is the Republican party and they continue to try and conserve the status quo of a white male Christian patriarchy which is why over 90% of black Americans vote Democrat.

It's rather hilarious to me that Republicans try to pin the racist south and the legacy of the Dixiecrats on Democrats today yet they and their supporters are the ones wearing confederate flag t-shirts and sporting swastika armbands while marching in protest of confederate monument removals.

You should do some research on racism and how the Democrats involvement and support.  (Not like I really expect you to do it.  It would go against your whole rant and world view.)

I'm well aware that some piece of shit bigots, mostly in the south, used the name "Democrat" as they fought against civil rights and created the KKK. Just because they once used the name Democrat does not forever tie that name to them, lots of political parties and ideologies have used the word "Democrat" in their political parties name. Here's an incomplete list but demonstrates the point:

1792-1824 Democratic-Republican Party

1896-1902 National Democratic Party

1864 The Radical Democracy Party

1898-1901 Social Democratic Party

1948-1955 States Rights Democratic Party (Dixiecrats)

1944-1948 Progressive Democratic Party

1964 Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party

1938 Popular Democratic Party of Puerto Rico

Only dumb fuck ignorant half wits try and claim that anything done under any party name with "Democrat" in it somehow implicates the Democrat Party of today in their ideology. There are dozens of political party's that have the name "Republican" in them too, should we paint the current Republican party with that broad brush as well? The "Liberal Republican Party" or the "Silver Republican Party" or the "American Republican Party", or even, God forbid, the "Democratic-Republican Party".

I've been researching and studying American history for the last forty years so I know well who today has embraced the bigotry of our past, and just like virtually every black American knows, it's not the Democrat party but the once proud Republican party that has opened it's doors to the white nationalists, white supremacists, KKK and wannabe Nazi's. It's why you have Nazi's running for office as Republicans. It's why the MAGA crowd came out waving confederate flags along side swastika flags as they protested the removal of a confederate monument and then a right wing piece of shit ran his car into the crowd murdering one and maiming dozens. You don't have to believe me, they'll tell you so in their own words.

" In at least five state and national races across the country, the Republican Party is dealing with an uncomfortable problem. Their party’s candidates are either a card-carrying Nazi, a Holocaust denier, a proud white supremacist, or all of the above."

" At the rally, leaders discussed how Trump's presidential run has brought white supremacism into the “mainstream” and legitimized their beliefs. In the words of NSM commander Jeff Schoep: “Some of the things that [Trump] is saying are issues that we have been tackling for years now.”
