The real Uppity Negroes are Black people who serve in official or unofficial leadership roles that supposedly serve the Black community or cast themselves as Black leaders, yet act like they are better than other Black persons who they perceive lie beneath their personal elite status.
Uppity Negroes, for example, are NAACP officials, or other advocates for the Black Community who thumb their noses up in an uppity manner or fail to speak to "common" Black persons because they erroneously think that those persons somehow fall beneath their elite status.
