Sambo is a character from the book "Uncle Toms Cabin." Sambo was a slave whose characteristics were to turn against his own people and "sell out" to the slave owner. This characters "sell out" attributes are largely placed on the wrong character, Uncle Tom
Your a sell out; a Uncle Tom (WRONG)
Your a sell out, a Sambo (CORRECT) "you show me give me the right, Ill show you how to tress the coons. Ill shows ya where they hides."

AS USED IN HIP-HOP/URBAN SLANG:
A sambo is a coward and a turncoat. A sambo with backdown from a fight. A sambo will steal. A sambo will stab you in the back.

The term has many supposed origins, the most common coming either from the story of Little Black Sambo or the British conquest of India. Many cite the slavery days of the U.S.A., in which the term is used in the same fashion as the Indian source. The "black faces" of early U.S. entertainment are often called sambos.

A.K.A. a house nigger (as in Malcolm X's contrast of the house nigger versus the field nigger).

A.K.A. "Uncle Tom"
Turn a sambo into a soldier with just one line... - Immortal Technique (in references to rappers in general)

I heard this kid, Sambo, was a snake - a rat - stole shit and then ran away to another state... - GM Grimm (in reference to MF DOOM)

The Term "Sambos" was coind by historian Stanley Elkins. It's original meaning was 'society of helpless dependants'. The term was used to explain how European settlers had conditioned African Slaves to be woefully accepting of their shitty conditions.
The term also applies to the conditions of all people who live in America....helplessly dependent.
By destroying an individuals sense of heritige, feeding them fear, and giving a false sense of security through consumerism you can condition an entire nation to become Sambos.
