NEW YORK CITY - Glenn "Insert Foot In Mouth Again" Beck stated on his radio show that black people who say that they are African-Americans are making a bogus statement.
He said that they were born in America and are therefore Black Americans whereas actress Charlize Theron who is white and was born in South Africa is a true African-American.
The Rev. Al Sharpton called up Glenn's program but each time that he said hello, Beck would hang up on him.
Sharpton was finally able to get through by disguising his voice to sound like Queen Latifah. Beck took "QL's" call.
And right away Sharpton said that it was him and if he hung up on him one more time he was going to call the White House and report him for discriminatory radio practices towards a brother.
Beck allowed Sharpton to talk. "Mr. Becky where da hell duz ya gets dis cockamamie notion any how's? What does ya think gives ya da right ta say dat black Americans can not use da term African-American?"
"Now hold on der crackerjacker lips. I ain't be finished talkin' at ja just yet now."
Sharpton went on to ask Beck if he had ever heard of the Supreme Court case Wackenberry vs. The NBA. Beck said that he had not.
Sharpton said that he figured as much. He then went on to tell Beck that in Wackenberry vs. The NBA, the defendants Rasheed Wallace, Allen Iverson, and Ron Artest all won the right to be called African-Americans instead of Negros, blacks, (blanks), (blanks), or the dreaded "N" word.
Beck told Sharpton that he had never heard of that case.
Sharpton told him that it did not surprise him because he has no African-American friends, co-workers, neighbors, or acquaintances.
Beck replied that it was untrue. He said that the man who delivers the mail to his office is a black and/or negro gentlemen named Mamoomi Tantafooki and he was born and raised in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
Rev. Sharpton said that he knows Mr Tantafooki and that he is actually half Jamaican and half Puerto Rican so technically Mamooni is a half Jamaican half Puerto Rican-American.
Beck said that he would be calling up Oprah "The Big O" Winfrey and asking her what she has to say about it.
In a developing related story. A group of individuals calling themselves The Folks Who Be For What Be Right Coalition have filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Black Hawks hockey team. They want the team name changed to the politically correct Chicago African-American Hawks.
