Derrick Wilburn: Uncle Tom’s True Meaning

Broadcast Running Time: 23:12

For those who have actually read Uncle Tom’s Cabin, they know that the titular character is a man of great integrity and the hero of the story.  But to be called an Uncle Tom today if you’re black has a connotation of negativity and of being a sellout.  Joining us today from Colorado Springs is Derrick Wilburn (poccinterns.com), Founder and Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives.  He discusses the essence of Uncle Tom, the man, as well as the book.  The ignorance by those who use Uncle Tom as a slur is a product of the radical policies in today’s schools that either teach untruths about history and literature or outright forbid the teaching of important books and events.  In the end, it’s big government versus liberty and freedom.  Make your choice.
