Allen West: ‘Trayvon Martin outrage masks real crisis in the black community’

Lt. Col. Allen West, former United States Congressman, conservative, and current contributor to Fox News and PJ Media responded today to the continued outrage in the black community when the Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin.

The six-minute video by West captures the essence of the problems in the black community that is ignored in the mainstream media as well as those black civil rights leaders that advocate racism instead of solutions.

West said, “Trayvon Martin’s death was tragic, but it should not be the reason that the black community should protest in the streets. High unemployment, gang crime, health problems and abortion rates plague black people all across the country.”
