Call those deafies who practice oppression on deaf, "Uncle Al"?

After reading some blogs of how those stuck up deafies whined about other deafies, I think it is time to term them with a new name. If those peeps want to throw barbs and zings our way, they are considered, "Uncle Al"

A new derogatory term for those who practice audism against deaf friends or a deaf person who sucks up to hearing people and let them manipulate him or her. I am using Al from Alexander Graham Bell. So be it!

This comes from Uncle Tom idea -

Uncle Tom is a derogatory term for a person of a low status group who is overly subservient with authority, or a black person who behaves in a subservient manner to white people.[1][2]
