As a mixed race (black father/white mother) American, who was raised in a black foster home in the 60's in the Watts/Compton area, and being bullied as too light skinned or white, and then reunited with my mother, and rejected by her then husband as "too black", and graduated high school in the 70's in Inglewood Ca during the "white flight" years, I don't need any person black or white to explain the issue of rascism to me, having experienced it on both sides...I was a DNA Democrat until I was 25, and have since been a Republican (conservative), not because of race, but because of love of my country and what it used to stand for...freedom and opportunity!

...I agree with TXTRUTH, and I believe that is what Rep. Allen West is saying...

The Los Angeles Times is having issues with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus "justifying" remarks made by Rep. Allen West last week when he said President Obama wants to make American taxpayers his slaves. West isn't exactly happy with the Times trying to "rein him in" either. In a recent opinion piece titled, "America's Dirtiest Job: Justifying Allen West," Times writer Dan Turner can't understand why anyone would stand by comments West has made and goes so far as calling Priebus a West "apologist."

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, has such a dirty job...
