    "Uncle Tom" has come to describe this kind of behavior. That character was beaten to death over the course of days for withholding the location of two escaped slaves. But it's a part of the language now, and a useful one, so there's nothing to be done. On the bright side, "falafel" is now shorthand for "Bill O'Reilly is a creep, remember?". So kudos for throwing that in.
