Not a wonderful world: why Louis Armstrong was hated by so many

Casual listeners think of him as a gentle giant of jazz, but critics and African Americans often saw him as a sell out or ‘Uncle Tom’. A new book aims to show how radical ‘Pops’ really was

How sad that in 2020 "journalism' is still using 'Uncle Tom' as a negative misnomer to describe a positive title/image.

'Sambo-Coon' describes a sellout NOT UNCLE TOM!

Louis Arrnstrong was a great musician- so who cares what anyone outside of black society thinks about this wonderful man....!

PS It is called Black Pride!
