Uncle Tom se refiere a la novela Uncle Toms Cabin escrito por Harriet Beecher Stowe. La novela es una historia muy racista en contra al negro especificamente. El término Uncle Tom se usa en los EEUU para cualquier persona de un grupo minoria que hace lo que el grupo en poder requiere sin pensar en lo bueno para el grupo del cual es parte. Es que Rushdie no quiere ser maldicho como traidor. Espero que le ayude.
