From Three of Larry Elder’s “Fifteen Ways to Avoid Being Called an ‘Uncle Tom’: (from a discussion on Metafilter on racist guide for parents from NJ teacher’s union)
Whenever possible, disparage the success of other ethnic groups. Never attribute their success to hard work, discipline and sacrifice.
Remember every racial slight and slur that’s ever happened to you. Forget how long ago or what idiot said it. All racist remarks should be retained, remembered, regurgitated.
Never look happy or comfortable. Rap artists don’t smile. Neither should you. Snoop Doggy Dogg, Ice-T and Public Enemy never grin. This would suggest, “Hot damn, I’m rich! America works!”
