Racism At The Boston Globe

In a review of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," the Boston Globe calls Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes and Michael Steele "house negroes."
Samuel L. Jackson plays crusty, waxen Stephen as a vision of depraved loyalty and bombastic jive that cuts right past the obvious association with Uncle Tom. The movie is too modern for what Jackson is doing to be limited to 1853. He’s conjuring the house Negro, yes, but playing him as though he were Clarence Thomas or Alan Keyes or Herman Cain or Michael Steele, men whom some black people find embarrassing.
