Reviews - What do customers think about The American Directory Of Certified: Uncle Toms?

It's True and where talkin past oreo"s  Aug 2, 2005
Mr. Thompkins (blackbottom54n36@yahoo.com),
Buck-Dancing Desroy's
At this time in the growth of a Black culture/Black Nation or better yet the Afrikan centered consciousness that says the CREATOR made us Afrikan, and some man made us American. There are some among us who believe "where can you get better food then this-where can you get better where can you get better.............than this. We know through medical that a snatching creates trauma. The American Directory of Certified Uncle Toms reveals on a national level there are those in our extended family who like the "Carlton" character, and those brown faces in not even high places who feel "god bless America." To deny that this behavior exist is to be afraid that the title fits to neatly on one's. The dualism that is abound has to labeled, for how else can we heal a PEOPLE? This book is one of the final pieces in the diagnosis, and healing of the Black Nation from the illness that affects an entire people. This book exposes the Benedict Arnolds, and Judas' -pages 22 thru 30 defines the behavior across social ethnic lines. But remember Harriet Tubman did not run an Under Ground RailRoad for fun!

A Must have  Apr 7, 2004
This is one heck of a book and I don't understand why any black person would dis it. (unless they are convicted)I've read it several times.
 
A Daring Rebuke of Black Eurocentrists  Feb 27, 2004
The American Directory of Certified Uncle Toms is a well documented, scholarly, and witty critique of the most stridently Eurocentric elements of the Black community. The book clearly distinguishes between "enlightened Black interests"( economic, political and creative self-determination)and the practices of Black Eurocentrists(undermining grassroots Black leadership,justifying the suppressive staus quo, portraying our pathologies for financial gain, and minimal accountability to legitimate Black contituencies). Finally, we have a publication that takes on white liberalism, Black conservatism,pathological classism in our community, and an inordinate Zionist influence(the part where Ron Dellums was forced to have a family meeting because of a potential political backlash is particularly telling). While I may not agree with all entries, this book is essential in its value to Black people whether they like or not.
 
Indicted and Convicted  Jul 31, 2003
Did the people who had a problem with this book read it? The analysis, the history, the nuanced perspective is devastating. Perhaps this is the trouble. The authors do not contend that "anybody who makes it is an Uncle Tom." Rather, the authors look at those of us who have been "allowed" to make it and examine their statements on the public record and their contributions, if any, to the race. Fair enough. To paraphrase Malcolm X, "you might not like their saying it, but you can't deny it."

I suspect that the other discomforting aspect of this book is the fact that black people are challenged to look at themselves and determine the ways in which they collaborate with the racist/capitalist system. I felt indicted and on a number of counts - convicted - by the author's, but happily so. Happily, because I hope to shed the self-hating, warped beliefs and behaviors that I hold and that, coincidentally, succor the horrific government we have in the US. The people who mistake a subtle, analytical work with a broad brush attack on successful black folk for being successful black folk are not being real.
