For a long, long time now, conservatives have been trying to make the point that the Democratic Party is steeped up to the neck in racism, which is a fact anyone who has studied real history and not revisionist propaganda, will easily see for themselves. This tradition continues today, though it is more covert than it was during the time of slavery and the Civil War.
A good example of this comes to us from Georgia State Sen. Emanuel Jones, a Democrat from Decatur, who recently decided to call Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, one of the most accomplished black men in history, an “Uncle Tom,” which is a racial slur. As if that wasn’t bad enough, according to the Daily Wire, he later admitted he had no idea if Uncle Tom was a real person or a fictional character.
“Jones took to the State Senate floor to argue against a Republican-led proposal to place a statue of Thomas – a Georgia native — on the grounds of the state Capitol, and he compared Thomas to a slave who had ‘sold his soul’ to his white master,” the report said.
The Left is so outraged by a proposal to build a statue of Clarence Thomas at the Georgia Capitol, that one unhinged lawmaker compared him to an “Uncle Tom” who “sold his soul to the slave masters.”

“We cannot avoid that conversation so I’m not going to avoid it either,” Jones went on to say as he spoke of the discussion over the statue.
“In the black community we have an expression — and I don’t want to use this label too deeply here because I’m just trying to tell you what we have in the African American community when we talk about a person of color that goes back historically to the days of slavery and that person betraying his own community — we have a term in the black community,” Jones kicked things off.
“That term that we use is called ‘Uncle Tom,’” he stated, going on to add, “And ‘Uncle Tom’ is a — either fictional or a non-fictional character, I don’t really know the origin of ‘Uncle Tom’ — but it talks about a person who, back during the days of slavery, sold his soul to the slave masters.”
The only explanation that Jones offered up, after first making the suggestion that white folks would not necessarily understand his concerns — for making this accusation against Justice Thomas was due to a vague reference made concerning his position on LGBTQ+ issues, along with the assumption his decisions angered women.
“I don’t expect people of non-color to get the sensitivity that we feel about a person of color whose policies and practices and decisions and votes … we’ve rallied [to] fight against,” he noted, adding, “Justice Thomas’ decisions have certainly sparked outrage [among] women and not just women of color, but all women. And certainly, when we look at the LGBTQ+ community, his votes and positions he’s taken have raised outrage in that community as well.”
The measure in question managed to pass, but along party lines with a vote of 32-20, and is now set to be sent off to the Georgia State House for consideration.
Racial slurs are completely unnecessary, regardless of the skin tone of the individual tossing them around. Shame on you, Jones. Shame on you.
