Why do we SPEAK ILL of UNCLE TOM, When I hear us say it in reference to US, it just SEEMS QUITE DISTORTED from ANCESTRAL REASONING... As a FOOL I am GLAD, I did not pick up on it and also GLAD SOMEONE from AMONG US is getting down to the MATTER (TRUE or FALSE) But that does not JUSTIFY ME at ALL A trip to Canada yields Maryland story about slavery http://www.uwm.edu/Library/special/exhibits/clastext/clspg149.htm So we have to WORDS of OCCUPATION in the COMMUNITY that needs some ANSWERS....UNCLE TOM and being called a N' word. So UNCLE TOM came from a WHITE WOMAN of the name HARRIET BEECHER STOWE. Interesting and guess what it was 'OUT of SPITE'. The N word come from a EUROPEAN MAN ... Interesting and guess what it was 'OUT of SPITE'. WOW... And HOW DO WE USE IT IN THE COMMUNITY (MOST of the TIME) 'OUT of SPITE' Interesting... Somebody should have PICKED THIS UP before ME.... I guess AFRICANS in AMERICA were READING more than THAT BIBLE from RUTHLESS WHITE.... But this article is helping me solve a MYSTERY of ENSLAVED AFRICANS in AMERICA.... which is very EXCITING That is ANCESTORS CROSSING PATHS and ONE LIFTING the OTHER... UNCLE TOM blood ties in with MATTHEW HENSON... which ties in with INUIT PEOPLES and perhaps a LIFE SAVER... Oh well.
