Uncle Tom: An Oral History of the Black Conservative Movement

Tom is the declared hero in the novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” written by Harriet Beecher Stowe and published in 1852. A slave, Tom was non-violent and sacrificed himself to protect runaway slaves. Over the years, his name became a racial slur, an insult. To be an “Uncle Tom,” according to leftists, is to be subservient to whites.

This slur is used against black conservatives, Americans who believe in traditional values, personal and fiscal responsibility, and other tenets to preserve the founders’ vision for this country and to allow people to live freely and pursue happiness without government interference.

The founders of UncleTom.com have produced a documentary of the black conservative movement, which premiers on June 19. From site:

Black Conservatives are one of the most misunderstood political groups in America. Uncle Tom exposes the double standards they face for “not being black enough.”

This is a collection of intimate interviews with some of America’s most provocative black conservative thinkers. At some point in their lives, each cast member has been called an Uncle Tom. It’s a story about self-empowerment. Of taking control of your own story by getting an education and not playing the victim card. Uncle Tom wants America to be a nation of well-informed, educated human beings.

The documentary features such conservatives as Herman Cain, Larry Elder, Candace Owens, Jesse Lee Peterson, Carol Swain, Allen West, and Robert Woodson. Watch the three trailers:

  1. “Uncle Tom” is no more a hero than “Jim” is from “Huck Finn.”

    • Have you ever actually read the book?! Uncle Tom is a non-violent person with great faith in God, who stands up to a cruel owner and is beaten to death as a result.

      As for Jim in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, he’s the best character in the book! No matter what happens to him, he has more integrity and kindness than anyone else.

      Aren’t those virtues worth anything to you? They sure are to me.

  2. Have read both books. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s work, not by accident, has fundamentalist (religious) ideals regarding the merits of slavery. Twain’s work was simply based on what he witnessed in boyhood (i.e. superiority of a White boy over that of a Black man). It’s too bad these and other classics are now considered pejorative within the social discourse.
