    I don't agree with calling Scott an "oreo" or an "uncle Tom" any more than I agree with using terms like "want to keep blacks on the plantation." Both just perpetuate racism.

    It's not okay and I never said it was. For me none of those terms are acceptable. There are plenty of other standard words in the English language to get across that you don't like something about someone.

    AFAIK there are no plantations in the US today except historical ones. Today such a thing would be called a farm. So using the plantation analogy is just thinly-veiled racism.

    "Uncle Tom" is not a racist term in any way, shape, or form.
    It merely describes, with offensive intent, an African American who's indifferent to or even helps perpetrate anti-African American racism.

    Oreo and Zebra are racial slurs, sometimes used to be purposefully offensive
    but also used just for comedic level offensiveness
    in reference to people with mixed Afro and Euro American genealogy.

    I look at the term in the Uncle Tom's Cabin sense, where the slave is depicted as being subservient to his white masters. I wish Dems would have attacked his ideas without the name-calling.

    Lol, true. My expectations are low for the forum. I assumed, maybe wrongly, that the thread was about all Dems.

    I very much like cats too, by the way, but my wife's eyes swell up from cat dander.
    Our dog tries to befriend cats all the time on her walks, but they tend not to be trusting of her.
    Our dog once tried to befriend a seal on the beach.

    Well, it was trending on twitter among White Libs, ... so you are the rare exception among the democrat party of slavery and Jim Crow.

    Uncle Tom is the virtuous Christian hero of Stowe's book, who refuses to obey his white master.

    "Initially, the character Tom—called “Uncle” Tom in the Southern fashion of showing respect for an older man—was viewed sympathetically by the novel’s readers. Stowe made him an exemplar of virtue and dignity who is far superior in character to the white slaveholders portrayed. He lives his Christian convictions, opposing violence despite the brutality he himself bears. Stowe’s Tom is brave, strong, and good. He saves the life of and is a good friend to Little Eva, his slaveholder’s frail young daughter. After Tom is sold to the evil Simon Legree, he is whipped to death for refusing to divulge the whereabouts of some runaways."

    Re-stating the obvious. Of course he's the hero, that's not the point. It's the contrast of a slave being overly caring to the people who enslaved him.

    "However, the character also came to be seen, especially based on his portrayal in pro-compassion dramatizations, as inexplicably kind to white slaveholders."
