Democrat Apologizes For ‘Uncle Thomas’ Tweet

Clarence Thomas SC Democrat apologizes for ‘Uncle Thomas’ tweet

ST. PAUL, Minn.— A Democratic legislator from Minnesota swiftly apologized Tuesday for a tweet he sent that referred to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as “Uncle Thomas” following a major ruling on the nation’s landmark voting rights law.

Thomas, who is black, was part of a 5-4 majority that invalidated part of the Voting Rights Act meant to deter racial discrimination in elections. The ruling makes it tougher for federal officials to prevent states and localities, primarily in the South, from adopting policies that add barriers to voting.

In response, state Rep. Ryan Winkler tweeted: “#SCOTUS VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas. Marriage decision may blur Court’s backsliding.”

“Uncle Tom” is a connotation to describe someone subservient to another and has its roots in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s pre-Civil War novel about slavery, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The latter part of the tweet refers to the high court’s expected decision on gay marriage.

    People so easily 'forgive' a democrat for making an OBVIOUSLY racial comment against one of our COURT JUSTICES but an older woman who admitted to using a slur 30 YEARS ago to describe an ATTACKER is taken to the woodshed and THRASHED mercilessly.
    My how the bias shines.
