Is it Black-Span or B-Span?


C-Span Caller Rails Against Black Callers (VIDEO)

A caller to C-Span this morning, who identified himself as a Republican from North Carolina, accused the network of taking too many phone calls from black people.

"You have black folks calling in on the Republican line, independents. And you have so many of 'em I can't believe this is just an accident. If you keep on with the way you've been programming, you should change your name from C-Span to black-span," he said. "I know they have an opinion but I wish that they would be honest and call in on the right line."

"Everyone one of 'em thinks that Obama is Jesus Christ and they don't like when anybody criticizes him," he added.

I was hoping that the C-Span staffer would suggest to the caller that he write his representative about banning Black people from having phones just to keep the surreal quality of the segment going.

I wonder what would happen if I called into the Sean Hannity show and said the same thing:

Me: "Uh...yeah. I mean this respectfully, but every time I watch Fox News, I hear a bunch of weird white people saying stupid sh..."

*dial tone*

Me again: "Hello? Hello?"
