COL. ALLEN WEST weighed in on whether or not the George Zimmerman verdict is an opportunity to talk about race. West said it depends on what you want to talk about. "Do you really want to talk about the issues that are confronting the black community? Or do you want to talk about the politically-manufactured crises that you have these faux-leaders... promoting? I think that is what we have to start looking at," West exclaimed.
West went on: "If we want to have these media... frenzy-created crises someone like an Al Sharpton running around all over the country like the charlatan that he is, then we're not talking about the real issues and we're not having a real conversation about race."
