Black Superdelegates Harassed

Via Hot Air headlines, the Democratic race war continues. Some Obama supporters are not too keen for black superdelegates who have announced support for Clinton:

“African-American superdelegates are being targeted, harassed and threatened,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II (D-Mo.), a superdelegate who has supported Clinton since August. Cleaver said black superdelegates are receiving “nasty letters, phone calls, threats they’ll get an opponent, being called an Uncle Tom.“This is the politics of the 1950s,” he complained. “A lot of members are experiencing a lot of ugly stuff. They’re not going to talk about it, but it’s happening.”

People calling “Uncle Tom”? Democrats? I find that hard to believe.
