Minn. state Rep. Ryan Winkler calls Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom, claims he didn't know it was offensive

Minnesota state Rep. Ryan Winkler is about to learn a hard lesson: Twitchy is forever.

Upon hearing that the Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act, the Democrat took to Twitter to attack Justice Clarence Thomas as an Uncle Tom. “#SCOTUS VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas. Marriage decision may blur Court’s backsliding,” he tweeted. He quickly deleted the tweet, but it was archived by Topsy.



Winkler’s account is not verified by Twitter, but it is linked from news articles and NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota’s website. Here’s what followed Winkler’s “Uncle Thomas” tweet:


He’s not sure if it’s offensive?

That was actually his excuse — that he didn’t know better.

Really? What exactly is the “debate”?


Judging by the context of the tweet, he knew exactly what it meant. He’s just sorry he got caught.
