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:
