Leave it to Liberals to try to keep Republican Black people down, attack them, and call them names. The only way that BP can fix their lives and get out of the slums is to adopt Republican principles and self-control. But the Left wants to keep them poor, broken, and out of control. It is the carrot on a stick mentality. The Left makes promises and gives token gains, yet keeps them back and discourages them from making changes that will give them real power.

People who put down Black Conservatives are still racists, since they are using the person's race as a weapon to try to force conformity. It is like using the N-word. It is a word used to control, anger, enforce conformity, or to make them feel like nothing. Calling someone an "Uncle Tom" has the same effect.

Anti-Black racism by other Black folks is still racism. Under the law, a person can be charged with hate crimes for bias against their own people. Take Matthew Shepherd. One of the men who killed him was just as gay as he was, and was still charged with a hate crime.

Did someone say a racial slur? I only read "dummy" in the story.

Side note is nice to see whites don't mind using blanket statements about blacks in a positive way when they are "selling out".

I never said anyone called anyone a racial slur in this case. They implied he was an Uncle Tom. They didn't have to right out say that. It is still as racist to imply such as it is to use the N-word. Calling them the N-word or implying someone Black is a sellout is still using race as a weapon.

And he isn't "selling out," but helping his people. The left-wing and Communist/Socialist people of color are the true sellouts. Those who take up for rapists, killers, and other violent people of color within their community are sellouts.

Although Tim Scott is a balloon lipped jungle bunny, he is one of the good ones.

And I never directed my post to you. I was referring to the slur in the title.

Thank you for clarifying.

Well, they called him a puppet or similar. Okay, a "GOP stooge." I consider that a slur, just like calling members of my party Contards, Tea-baggers, Repukes, etc. Not all slurs are racial. Some are sexist, anti-gay, political, etc.

I consider every Tea Party member a GOP stooge. Where is the racism in that?
