Actress Niecy Nash partnered with The New York Times to create a hotline for white people who can’t resist calling the authorities on Black people.

The satirical hotline, 1-844-WYT-FEAR, was created for the BBQ Beckies and Cornerstore Carolines of the world who seem incapable of minding their Caucasian pumpkin spice business.

Nash filmed an infomercial-style advertisement to promote the service.
“I want to introduce you to a radical new product that will save you from all the headaches from being filmed and outed as a racist douche,” she said.

The commercial features a call center full of operators who “have been living while Black in America their entire lives” attempting to assist white callers with their colonial complaints. The commercial ends with a couple of police officers abruptly entering the call center.

If the informercial wasn’t hilarious enough, pick up your phone and call the number if you want another laugh.

“Thank you for calling 1-844-WYT-FEAR,” the operator says. “We are here to address your urgent concerns about black or brown people living their life near you.”

The automated number gives callers prompts to follow that leads to a message that calls white folks out on their bigotry.

“Based on your menu selection, we have determined that you are not in danger and probably just racist,” when callers are asked to choose which frightening encounter they’re having with Black folk.

The operator also pokes fun at white people who can’t bear to hear foreign languages being spoken.

“Warning: if hearing Spanish is triggering for you, please cover your ears now,” the operator says before repeating the prompts in Spanish.

The Times also posted a list of almost 40 instances of white people calling the police on Black people for, as Nash puts it, “no goddamn reason.”
