Republicans criticized Black Lives Matter (BLM), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and corporate America for refusing to condemn the “Uncle Tim” slur to black Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) that surfaced Wednesday and went viral on Twitter.
In the wake of his rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress, leftists on Twitter began using the hashtag “Uncle Tim” in reference to Scott, the lone black Republican in the Senate.
Democrats, who claim to be the only party to stand up for black Americans, have also reportedly remained silent on using the hashtag “Uncle Tim,” a play on the derogatory racial caricature Uncle Tom’s name presents black people as subservient.
Scott, the lone black Republican in the Senate, called out the hypocrisy of so-called “woke” corporate America.
He indicated that while they support BLM, sometimes echoing one of the leftist group’s favorite slogans, “Silence is violence,” they stay silent when the political ideology of a victim of racism does not align with the left.
On Friday, Sen. Scott tweeted:
Corporate America marches to the Left’s “silence is violence” rallying cry, but now that a conservative is attacked? Crickets.— Tim Scott (@SenatorTimScott) April 30, 2021
This isn’t about me.
If you won’t stand up against racism, what are you saying to young Black & brown kids who dare to think differently? Be better. pic.twitter.com/wMnJak503h
