Ralph Nader Did NOT call Obama Uncle Tom on Fox TV
by Mara

It was reported that Ralph Nader called Barack Obama an Uncle Tom on TV.
I checked out the interview video and that is not what he said.
Ralph Nader said Obama could either be "Uncle Sam for the people of this country or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations."
He was then jumped on by the obnoxious interviewer.
He defended himself very well.

While Obama is being hailed by many for breaking the presidential color line, will he actually come through for black people? This is the all important question Nader was addressing.

See he interview for yourself at
