AUDIO: Radio Host: "I didn't call (Juan Williams) a house negro."

← return to Water Cooler

 

Warren Ballentine, a talk radio host who sparred with Juan Williams about Rush Limbaugh last night on the O’Reilly Factor, talked about the response from those not at all pleased with Ballentine’s “porch” remark. Mr. Ballentine spoke about it on his online radio show today saying the following (AUDIO):

BALLENTINE: Boy, they’re hitting me up on Twitter, boy.  These white folks…’call Warren Ballentine out! He told Juan Williams to go back to the porch! They’re mad those conservatives. ‘ How dare you get on our negro who is defending us!’ Let me tell everybody who is a conservative who is listening to the show right now.  Rush Limbaugh has created a perception of being racially divisive.  I have every right to say that.  Now if you want to take what I said about Juan Williams as racial, you go right ahead.  All I said was he could go back to the porch.  I didn’t call him a house negro.  I said he could go back to the porch.  Now if you took it as such, then that means you view him as that.

Update-transcript addition last sentence.
