    "Uncle tim" is a play on the racial slur uncle tom.

    It trended on Twitter for half a day before being censored. MSNBC defended the slur.

    Open racism
    Nothing new there. Most of the most racist people I have ever met IRL have been Democrats.

    That tactic has been scraped because the left can no longer use calling someone gay as an insult, but maybe we can still apply the same logic here. You know, virtually any time someone calls something outside a klan meeting racist we should dismiss them as a closeted racist full of self-loathing.
    It's funny. I've often said that what you use as insults tells people what you see as "lesser".

    I think everyone knows that the most racist element of our society is on the Left. Except for those on the Left who are in denial.

    Like China Biden. I like how he squirms around and digs his hole deeper.

    Who was it (a black man) who used to refer to this as "master fussin at another slave who wandered off the plantation"? I'm thinking it was the late great Walter Williams.

    Yeah, amazingly, doctors of foreign origin seem to be targets of ridicule here, when their cultures often are FAR more focused on education, success, detail, etc.

    "I'm not sure how much I would trust doctors who believe Rhino horns are a way to improve your manhood."

    He was called on using a stereotype to assume someone was a bad doctor based on nothing than their heritage.

    But liberals can get away with it - over and over and over.
