How Long?

Congressman and retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West speaks to the issue of unemployment in the black community.

That's pretty rough speech! I met LTC West once, and he's a tough guy -- a good guy, too. He's choosing these words carefully, advisedly, precisely for the reaction he'll get.

When he speaks of "Conservative principles and values" that are the "corner stone of the black community," though, he's leaving aside explosive rhetoric. What is this cornerstone of the black community?

"Individual responsibility and accountability, faith, family, and a hard work ethic."

Any community founded on those principles is likely to do well.
