Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck may have just gotten on a very big man's very bad side.

After theroot.com compiled 33 celebrities and newsmakers in a listed titled "The Blackest White Folks We Know" -- which also included Beck -- Beck featured the list on his Fox show and made comments about his list-mates.

Several people with Chicago ties made the cut, including Urlacher, a Bears linebacker and six-time Pro-Bowler; Phil Jackson, who coached the Bulls dynasty;  Rod Blagojevich, the former Illinois governor who once claimed he was "blacker"' than President Obama; and Father Michael Pfleger, who preaches at a predominantly black church in Auburn-Gresham.

Pointing to Urlacher, Beck said "I think this guy's a Neo Nazi."
