Flashback 2010: MO NAACP Speaker Called Kenneth Gladney 'Uncle Tom'
The same state NAACP that today asked for the Department of Justice and Secret Service to investigate the rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask hosted an event in 2010 in which a speaker called a black conservative an “Uncle Tom.” After two Service Employees International Union members beat up Kenneth Gladney in the presence of witnesses, the Missouri NAACP held a press conference and rally. One of the speakers at the rally stated, “I was really struck by a front page picture of this guy, which we called, a Negro, I mean that we call him a Negro in the fact that he works for not for our people but against our people. In the old days, we call him an Uncle Tom. I just gotta say that.”
