Plantation Overseer Rangel Responds to Allen West

Now that there's a hardnosed Tea Party conservative in congress who's black, there is a credible voice that can start to highlight the destruction that liberalism does to black America.

“White liberals have turned over to certain leaders — ‘perceived leaders’ — in the black community like a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, a Maxine Waters or Barbara Lee, and said, ‘pacify and keep the black community firmly behind us regardless of the failures of our social welfare policies,’” West said.

“The Republican Party has not done very well in reaching out and I think that’s where we have an opportunity to show that the conservative principles and values that really are the cornerstone and the bedrock of the black community — individual responsibility and accountability, faith and family, hard work ethic,” he said. “Those are the type of things that we can reconnect to the black community and once again get a thriving economic community within our inner cities.”

Last night, Charlie Rangel was given a chance to respond.
