    Oh yeah, anytime an African American is conservative they are called Uncle Tom by the left.

    And for the life of me I cannot figure out why. Uncle Tom is one of the most virtuous characters in American literature.

    Because it is the liberals who are actually bigoted.

    I will tell you a true story. A few years back I worked with a black fellow named Leroy. We were best of friends at work and after work also. I went over to his house often and knew his family, he came over to my house often and was well liked. He moved back to Philadelphia about six years ago.

    Another fellow I worked with is a staunch Democrat and very liberal. We often discussed politics. One day he came up to me and asked me, "How can you be friends with Leroy?" I said, "What do you mean, because I am a Southerner and a Republican?" He said, "Yes".

    He was dead serious when he asked this question.

    This is how messed up this liberal fellow I worked with was. He knew I was a Southerner (originally from N.C.) and a Republican and he could not imagine that I would even talk to a black person, much less be a close friend.

    I just laughed at him and said, "Make sure you never talk to him, because you will say something idiotic that insults him as soon as you open your mouth."

    And the truth is, he would not talk to Leroy himself. He was bigoted.

    Blacks are the most racial people in America and most would flat out tell you that. I have African Americans in my family and they will be the first to let you know that the racial hatred runs way deeper than many would ever imagine, and not just against whites.

    Yes, sadly in my 51 years I have found this to be true, too.
