I wonder if Sowell has any nieces of nephews who unironically call him "Uncle Tom"

I never actually read the book itself, but read somewhere else that Uncle Tom in the book is not a traitor, so calling somebody Uncle Tom is a misnomer.

Yeah, I was a conscientious objector to reading that shit-heap back in high school. My grades were otherwise good enough, that I chose not to deal with it.

Also - I'm a huge Thomas Sowell fan, and I'm sure he gets called a Uncle Tom all the time by that kind of folk.
