Recently, I received an interesting email from a loyal reader who suggested that FOX News guest political analysts Juan Williams and Tara Wall were Uncle Toms. While I agree that the right wing liberal (and closeted gay) Juan Williams seems to be an apologist boot licker and Sean Hannity flunky - I have my doubts about the beautiful Tara, whose side gig is deputy editorial page editor of The Washington Times.
Wall doesn't come across as an apologist to me. I've watched her defend Obama against the likes of Hannity and she makes the point that FOX and other racist media are unfairly biased against Sen. Barack Obama. Do I think FOX News producers go out of their way to find biased elitist bourgeois blacks who share their views? Of course they do!
But what say you?
Read the email after the break!

Subject: Uncle Tom Reporters
I know you are quite aware of how racist the Fox news network among other networks can be. I'm very much at odds however with certain Black columnist/ reporters/ news contributors such as Juan Williams, Michael Still, and Tara Wall. It appears that they are on the Uncle Tom payroll for these racist networks and are being used to counter any issue concerning civil rights, Barack Obama, or any other issue that may work toward the enhancement of the black community in this very much racist society. Our young brothers and sisters need to know about these individuals in order to stay informed about how NOT to behave. Please put the word out on these individuals. Thanks for your time.
