CSPAN Caller: Maybe Network Should Change Name to Black Span
Voicing his belief that too many Black callers were calling on the Republican and Independent lines provided by CSPAN for its listeners, a North Carolina man, noting the race of two previous callers as White, stated he felt he and other conservatives may need to find another network to watch.
His discontent seemed to arise from what he has noted to be too many African Americans calling in relative to their percentage in the American population and, in his view, calling in on the wrong telephone lines.
"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."
