Black Activist Zaki Baruti: "It's OK to Call Ken Gladney an Uncle Tom… Most People Would Agree" (Video)

Black activist Zaki Baruti, the president of the Universal African Peoples Organization, told Bill O’Reilly last night that it’s OK to call Kenneth Gladney an “Uncle Tom” and “negro” because he was selling anti-Obama trinkets on the street.

“I most definitely stand by the statement that was made regarding Kenneth Gladney and stand very strongly with Rev. Elston McCowan.”

The former civil rights group, the NAACP, is supporting the two SEIU members who beat, kicked and stomped on black vendor Kenneth Gladney and called him the n-word as they bashed him on the cement.

    Hateful people. Disgusting.

  • militant conservative

    So, you must always remain on th plantation as a victim black rather than be free to decide your own destiny. Yup, that sounds like institutional racisim to me. Get the black community all fired up. they are only 12% of the total population. Let them see who the REAL oppressor is. the DEMOCRATS. powder is dry.

  • Sickofobama

    Fact is if you are black and support Obama you aren’t an Uncle Tom.

    Fact is if you are black and want to stay on the plantation you aren’t an Uncle Tom.

    NAALCP is in business to make money and it doesn’t help the average black out there.

    This is what has been acceptable in the black community for over a century. However, since the militant, progressive race hustlers saw the money ticket (and bought into the Alinsky and Weather Underground missions) things have changed. Calling a black person names like “Uncle Tom” “oreo” and such have today been transformed into a type of reverse-race card used to belittle and suppress blacks who don’t agree with the leftist progressive Democrat agenda.

    The only good thing I see about this is that the left is showing its extreme side to the public square. However, this type of labeling has become so toxic and yet acceptable to most of the population (among whites as well) that trying to speak out against it brings on the stigma of going against the “average black” and being called raaaaaaaaaaacist.

    The media and the loudest and bigoted minorities are controlling the conversation, mostly due to our fears and silence. This must change.

    It’s a pity Mr. Gladney or some other patriot near him was not properly dressed (e.g., exercising CCW rights) when this happened. Notice how these cowardly thugs never try these stunts in places where they are likely to find the tables turned ??

  • eaglewingz08

    Since most people in America are white, would this reasoning mean it’s ok for white people to denigrate blacks too?

  • eaglewingz08

    I was also wondering if the reason the NAACP refused to allow a live feed of its resolution debate was because it feared the language would show its racism towards whites (you know that same black panther cracka lingo)? Couldn’t have the NAACP’s racist stripes showing when it is condemning the non existent ‘racism’ of the tea partiers.

  • squeaky

    an organization that demands lock-step adherence ….. that always works out swell [not]. charges of racism is just a weapon that was found to be effective in the struggle for control of power. remember obama’s divirsity czar mark lloyd. and remember thomas sowell and his pondering as to whether this is about equality or revenge………

  • Palinfan

    Strange, I don’t agree with Gladney and I think I am ‘most people’. Also strange – I can’t find one single person who agrees either.

  • Palinfan

    Meant to say Baruti, not Gladney.

  • seven

    They hate Gladney because he has white friends.
    Zaki is offensive. Now if a white helps a black beat up a black that has white friends, that white is OK.
    SEIU is such a criminal enterprise.

  • thebronze

    I hope this idiot Baruti does more news programs, so people can see what an ignorant buffoon he is.

    He’s not down wiff Ken Gladney…

    Eric Holder said that Americans are cowards to talk about race, and yesterday we saw that in full glory.

    But the real problem is that since we have gotten our first (real) black President and a bit before, it has become more and more obvious that there is a real problem in the black community with race relations. They still live in the 60’s, and the early 60’s at that. They have refused to see any improvement in race relations because it will interfere with their world view of self pity and victimhood. It really must be a miserable life.

    NAACP supports SEIU thug beaters of Kenneth Gladney?

    Yeesh. You’d at least think they would have the good sense to stay out of it. But no…

    The civil rights movement has long been used as a cover to advance the liberal/progressive agenda. Since such gains were made, and now that some of those gains in the liberal/progressive issues, as opposed to the racial, are facing strong opposition, liberal/progressive advocates are once again falling back upon the very emotionally strong racial agenda to advance their own issues.

    But where black activists are concerned, they use the “race card” in a negative manner against members of their own race who might not support the liberal/progressive agenda. In this manner, it is in fact they who are impeding the progress of African-Americans. By not allowing members of their own race to engage in opposing political ideology, they are hindering the overall advancement of political philosophy, again by stopping the public debate of merits and consequences.

    Zaki Baruti is the “Uncle Tom” in this circumstance, the “House Negro” who is trying to prevent ideological freedom, by insisting that a certain race can have only one political ideology. That ideology has used and is still using the emotionalism of racial prejudice to advance its broader goals.

    The NAACP defines “racism” as having the power to impose your views. WHAT??? So for them it’s OK to be racist when you’re a minority because you don’t have the power to implement your racist ideology. Despicable.

    So today I’m pleased to announce the formation of the National Association for the Advancement of Polish People – NAAPP

    The Polish were a very small minority in the US when slavery was legal. The Poles did not arrive in the US in numbers until well AFTER slavery was ended through the Civil War. My ancestors arrived in the US about 1905 – so none of my ancestors held slaves.

    My ancestors were discriminated against openly when they arrived because #1 they were Catholic and # 2 they were Catholic. There were signs displayed in store windows throughout the nation“Polish need not apply”. Polish jokes abound -and you’ll never hear more or better ones than you’ll hear at our family reunions!

    Today, the AMERICANS of Polish descent have pretty much overcome the racism our ancestors encountered. This was done by proving we were AMERICANS – not Polish-Americans, and succeeding in SPITE of the barriers placed in front of us.

    However, I’m forming the NAAPP in the HOPE that I can instill RACISM against the Polish once again – so I can ensure myself a job as head of the NAAPP for the rest of my life. In order for this to happen I’ll have to achieve the following 5 goals:

    1) I’ll convince my fellow Americans of Polish descent to see themselves as Polish-Americans – not as Americans.
    2) Ensure that 25% of my fellow Polish-Americans are immediately unemployed. And convince them that they cannot succeed – because the racism against them is just too great.
    3) I’ll have to be sure that 50 – 60% of all Polish-Americans are born to single mothers.
    4) I’ll have to convince 25% of my fellow Polish-Americans that they need to become criminals and be thrown into prison .
    5) I’ll have to convince 40%-50% of them to turn to the govt. with their hands out so they can get just enough table scraps to keep them from starving while at the same time convince them that they’re ENTITLED to more.

    When these five goals are achieved – I can then point to these statistics as PROOF that my fellow Polish-Americans are being unfairly discriminated against!

    As a benefit – Polka music will be blasting from white teens stereos – forever more to be known as WOLLOCKS – White Pollocks

    To Zaki Baruti everything is as clear as “black and white”!
