Allen West will normally say anything that will get him onto Fox News, but his latest comments are interesting. Over-the-top, as usual, but interesting.

I don’t know. I also don’t care anymore.
Yeah. The game is not worth the candle.
That would be 73% Yes.
You always know the polster is afraid of the truth, when they provide too many ways to say either yes or no.
Yes, Allen West is usually “over-the-top”, the top of the swill that the MSM serves up as “journalism.”
Many blacks are socially conservative but from a financial standpoint are jealous and victimizing. The black community doesn’t value education and hard-work as much as they should. Blacks who work hard are spit on for “acting white”. It’s the crab mentality where when one crab rises to the top above the others, the other crabs band together and pull it back down.
They don’t really have a set economic principle other than “ME ME ME”. If some democrat politician promises them programs or monies that will make life easier for them, they support it.
Being afraid of ostracism is normal for everybody. All conservatives are ostracized, but it does seem black conservatives get a heavier dose of it from progressives. Are progressives racist? Yes.
Well, The KKK used to work pretty hard to make them all pull the Democrat lever.
Unlike Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz, who is always the voice of calm reason...or Alan Grayson, an escaped mental patient.
I think the average black person is more conservative than the black ‘leadership’ that speaks for him or her. They are against homosexual marriage, for instance, and are mostly Christian. It is probably more accurate to say that they are afraid to be Republican.

The American minorities I know personally are all excessively impressionable and so are extremely fearful of deviating from what they regard as popular culture and popular opinion. They are all very easily led.
They ARE the last movie they saw, the last magazine they saw, the last TV program they wathced, the last ‘celebrity’ they heard...etc.
Just like children.
Who cares? 97% voted Obama in 2008. How do you change that? What we have to worry about is can Obama get them off the couch again in 2012.
What a condescending jerk! Today's crop of "journalists" (loosely defined) are incapable of writing about any conservative without injecting some sort of jab.
No. That may have been true 20 or 30 years ago. Not today. Blacks vote for the best person, regardless of party. (164 responses)
Yes. Too many blacks think they MUST be liberal and Democratic, no matter how they really feel. (503 responses)
No. Blacks know that conservatives have solutions to today’s economic problems. (16 responses)
