Sadiq Khan engulfed in new race storm after branding moderate Muslims 'Uncle Toms'
Sadiq Khan is engulfed in a new race storm after it emerged he branded moderate Muslims "Uncle Toms".
Labour's candidate for London Mayor used the highly derogatory term during an interview with an Iranian-funded TV station.
The frowned-on phrase from the slavery era refers to a black man considered to be excessively obedient to whites.
Mr Khan used it when he was Communities Minister in the last Labour government, while talking about the need to reach out to all Muslims in the fight against extremism.
