All these years I thought it was some type of insult, but it really isn't.
Sambo is anyone who snitches informs or selling out his race
The novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin was a part of the ammunition that led to the Civil War. Now through an elaborate mischaracterization the term Uncle Tom is now a negative term towards black men. In the book Uncle Tom:
1. Helps a sick black slave with her cotton bag
2. Refuses to snitch on runaway slaves
3. Helps saves a drowning white child
4. Made into Christ figure by being whipped to death by two black Sambo’s
The term Uncle tom is not appropriate label for someone who is white on the inside and black on the outside and sells out his race by placing his personal gains with whites ahead of the rights and gains of his people. The real villain was another black slave named Sambo. Sambo was childlike and musical and totally committed to the white master and used every opportunity to undermine the other slaves.
