Hispanic version of an Uncle Tom. Uncle Juan is subservient to the dominant culture in hopes of winning favoritism. Uncle Juan's deride their ethnic roots and try to distance themselves as much as possible. Often they take pride in not knowing Spanish and are offended when Spanish is spoken to them. They generally view Hispanic culture as inferior and exhibit culture self loathing. Example, Trump supporter and Uncle Juan Marco Guitierrez warned that if Trump loses there will be "taco trucks on every corner"
Juan is such an Uncle Juan, he even went so far as to change his name to John.

Uncle Juan is a term to describe Hispanic American males who are civilized as well as comprehensive and proficiently fluent in the English language. Some Uncle Juan's don't obtain that typical, annoying, and repulsive Hispanic American accent, but instead have an accent that of an average white American male. Unfortunately, Uncle Juan's are much rarer than Uncle Tom's (African American male variant) because most Hispanics who migrate to the United States move into ghetto projects, abuse the welfare programs & don't learn English. Because of this when these parents speak to their Hispanic American children, It's only in Spanish. So these Hispanic American children only learn English by going to school and socializing with English speaking people. But because of their family,environment, and lifestyle, they only hangout or socialize only with other Hispanics with the same background as them, and because of that they don't feel the need to speak proper English. So the end result is they become arrogant and Ignorant, while only knowing to speak Improper "ghetto" English or Spanglish.
Example of an Uncle Juan: me.
Some people like to think and say that Uncle Tom's or Uncle Juan's are envious servants to white people, I call them civilized.
