Allen West: No One Ever Followed Me In A Mall Or Clutched Their Bag When I Got On The Elevator

“I am a black male who grew up in the inner city of Atlanta and no one ever followed me in a mall. I don’t recall any doors clicking when I crossed the street. And I never had anyone clutching their handbag when I got on an elevator. I guess having two awesome parents who taught me to be a respectful young man paid dividends.” – Allen West

People keep throwing up AA, the fact is you dont make Colonel  in the army through AA. That is done by dedication, leadership, character, honesty and hard work. Every aspect of your life and career is inspected and taken into consideration. Note there is nothing in that list that has anything to do with race or skin color.

@preachertim 100% fact. and another fact is as long as the majority of the black community has Marcus’s attitude they will not move forward.

@uscgret2005 @preachertim sadly very true, but we can pray that in the future when the black community is looking for leaders they will look to men like Allen West, who will not assume they must have handouts from the govt to be successful but they can look to themselves and their own abilities and be beholding to no man for their success.

PS. I served in the army for several years, but left the army and retired from the uscg. 🙂 Semper Paratus!

Fact is AA does give preference to bl@cks I can site many court cases that proves it. Such as one in MA where 14 people took the fire chiefs test, the 7 whites and 2 Hispanics passed the test but were not promoted and the 5 bl@cks that failed the test were.

Allen West is a class act!!!!!! To bad the state of florida didn’t see thru the cr ap spewed from the other candidate!  Mr West is a true black man and not one of the wannabes like obomer!

Marcus, you are quite the F00L to think that AA is needed as law to equate to equality……… People should be judged upon the quality of their character not by the quantity of the applicants……It seems that Liberals consider blks less equal than whtes when we see people like Condi, Allen, and many many more able to make it without the govt nanny!!!

If you think AA lowers standards because they hire blaks your RAC IST. PLENTY of blaks get overlooked when they are more qualified than others because of skin. You are RAC IST if you think all blaks are under qualified

If Allen West were sitting in the Oval Office I truly believe we would see a major difference in the way race issues were handled in this country. For one he would show leadership and the ability to unite the country regardless of race, unlike the race baiting “leaders” we are currently saddled with.

You all fail to realize there are plenty of successful blaks that we don’t villify….as long as they are democrats and don’t forget about the rest of their race to appease their masters.

@Marcus Garvey  As long as they are Dems, as long as they continue to obey their masters, as long as they don’t stray, as long as they lie in order to get what they want, as long as they hate the White race.  Got ya.

Alan West gets it,

Ben Carson, gets it!

Black Americans who get out and go out and become successful are called names, They see more than handouts, they see more than free stuff and going through life chained to the government.

We are all Americans, we are suppose to be past the racial lines. I am half Cherokee, my people get treated like the dirt you walk on. Do I hear anyone call us names, no not anymore.

Why does the black community feel the need to call themselves African Americans, when they are Americans?

It seems that people like Marcus don’t like the standards being set by the likes of Dr. Carson and Col. West. They tend to set the bar higher than some would like. These standards require a great deal of effort to attain and point out the shortcomings of those not willing to put in the effort.

Ignore him folks Marcus Garvey has been on this thread for some time now trolling, and he is getting the attention he craves. Best way to shut him up is to ignore his ignorance.

Agree to a point.  Don’t give up on Marcus, God ain’t done with him.  We can dust our shoes off and move on to the next door, but we can also pray for those that need  Jesus.

@Buckaroony I couldnt agree more! My comment was not based on him as a person more to the posts he is making here, they are attention seeking. But your correct as a person we should care for him and always keep him and so many others like him in prayer always that God open their eyes.

Thanks preacher.  You’re right, Marcus is not alone, there are so many others like him – in fact, we were like him, and I thank God that somebody prayed for me.

compare obama to West. West is a leader, obama has no leadership qualities at all. West has courage, obama is a coward. West is honest and you know exactly what he thinks, obama is not he talks out of both sides of his mouth ( better known for political speak). West will address the hard issues without any polls telling him what to say, obama waits to see what to say to gain the most. this list could go on and on. obama can’t measure up to West at all.

The only difference between barack then and now is that he can steal from all hard working Americans legally.

You know what the very definition of an uncle tom is??? Justice UNCLE THOMAS trying to get rid of AA when he wouldn’t even be in his seat if it wasn’t for that exact same law…..Selling out his own race for a pat on the head…UNCLE TOM

@Marcus Garvey  More proof of how any Balk person that is a conservative is vilified by the left, how can you do that to your own race, getting smart for a balk man is acting like a White, do you see how s tu pid that is?  You are in fact saying that balks are supposed to remain s t u pid and Whites are smart.

@sealsnumerouno @Marcus Garvey No i am in fact saying why would he try to get rid of a law that CLEARLY HELPED him and continues to help others like him??? UNCLE TOM

@Marcus Garvey  You really don’t think you can accomplish anything on your own merits?  Because that’s really what AA is, lowering standards, just like they wanted to do to the firemen that got promoted but the system wanted to take away their promotions because no balk put the effort to study for the tests and didn’t get the promotion.
