Black Sellouts - Do They Exist?

Watch this video. Then answer a question, is he a sellout?

Next, I want you to review a list of prominent African Americans. While reading, I want you to note the first impression that comes to mind.

Barack Obama
Jesse Jackson
Al Sharpton
Rev. Jeremiah Wright
Colin Powell
Condoleezza Rice
Bill Cosby
Magic Johnson
James T. Harris
Oprah Winfrey

Do you consider all of these people "down for their race?"

Now, I want you to look back over your lifetime. Was there anybody that you felt was a sellout?

Finally, keeping all this in mind, do you feel black sellouts, Uncle Toms, etc. exists within the black community? Or, are we simply envious?
