Remember J. C. Watts? (Yes, Julius Caesar is his real name.) I don’t know how many “conservatives” I’ve talked to who praised him to the skies and expressed the hope that he would one day run for president. Not only would he make a great conservative president, but he would bring millions of blacks into the Republican party by showing them that we’re not racist at all, but colorblind, blah blah blah.

J. C. Watts a colorblind conservative? Hardly. He’s just another race hustler who saw that there was a lot more opportunity for advancement on the “conservative” side of the political street. Any idea what he’s up to these days? Well, when he’s not defending Barack Obama for his nearly 20 year long intimate association with Jeremiah Wright, he’s busy trying to start a new TV news network. And guess what? No whites need apply:

J.C. Watts thinks the uproar over statements by Barack Obama’s one-time pastor illustrates the need for a national black TV news channel.

Watts, who hopes to get one running by the summer 2009, tells The Associated Press that the voice of blacks is often missing from political debates, including the one over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

“We hope to be the single destination for reliable, credible, informational resources for the African-American community,” Watts says. “The critical thing is to allow the community to create a platform to be involved in the economic, social and political debates taking place across the country.”
