In chapter 4 of the book Uncle Tom's Cabin for what reason can Mr. Shelby be called a hypocrite?

Chapter 4 shows Uncle Tom's cabin, a small log house with a flower garden close to the master's house. Tom's wife, Chloe, is the head cook on the plantation, and this boisterous, turban-clad woman prides herself on her culinary reputation. Tom and Chloe have two young sons, who are teaching the new baby girl, Polly, to walk. George Shelby junior is at the cabin teaching Uncle Tom to write. Still they are slaves of Mr. Shelby. Mr. Shelby is also willing to sell Tom and ruin this scene, even ruin his son's relationship with the family.
