    I realize I'm not in the loop as I used to be..... It wasn't all that long ago that blaeks who held a job, spoke properly, & paid their bills on time were chastised by others in the blaek community by being called an "Uncle Tom" .... Now I hear this new phrase that has a lot of folks up in arms.

    Help me to understand, so that I may stay current on my blaek vernacular & colloquialisms. :)

    Hmmm...seems like it can also be a backhanded way of calling white people corny without saying it.

    But, the word brother would be indicative of a person of African American persuasion

    Yes. As in a negro that acts white (corny).
