The reference of Uncle Tom comes from the Book entitled, 
“Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by by Harriet Beecher Stowe 

Uncle Tom: The central figure of the book, Tom is a slave on the Shelby farm in Kentucky. His hard work, devotion, and dedication to God make him the most valuable slave on the Shelby family, which ironically leads to Tom’s undoing. 

Uncle Tom is a pejorative term for a black person who is perceived by others as behaving in a subservient manner to white authority figures, or as seeking ingratiation with them by way of unnecessary accommodation.

This means is that because the main character worked for the slave owners’ as their lead slave. Black people deem this type of person a “sell-out”.  It is definition number 2.  Source: uk.answers.yahoo.com

The phrase “Uncle Tom” has also become an epithet for a person who is slavish and excessively subservient to perceived authority figures, particularly a black person who behaves in a subservient manner to white people; or any person perceived to be a participant in the oppression of their own group. The negative epithet is the result of later works derived from the original novel.
