What the heck does uppity mean ( in the sense that Van Jones was using it?) I've checked the dictionary and cross referenced some stuff and here's the conclusion that I came to - in the context of his speech he meant audacious (even arrogant) behavior that he has has no right to.
I hate when politics are taken out of context - but I'm having a hard time putting this one in context. Everything I can find certainly suggest that the context of his statement was both racial and vengeful - As moderate as I am I don't want to believe that any one of such lacking character and Americanism could ever be entrusted to lead our country.
How/what did you take "uppity" to mean? So, did he mean it to say that "We're going to take liberties with the country which we have no right to" (we meaning his affiliate organizations - not his race). Alternately meaning transform the country by force??
