Allen West Confronted on Tea Party Ties by CBC Member: "We need Black Fathers not Washington DC"

Congressional Black Caucus member confronts Allen West at the CBC Convention.

"It's great that we have President Barack Hussein Obama as the first black, African-American Resident of the United States of America, but I didn't have to someone beyond my own dad," West said. "When you look at the black family structure right now, less than 33 percent have mother and father in the home. Once upon a time in the black community you didn't have to look at people outside your home for role models. We've have got to get that re-established so we don't have to look up to Washington D.C. You can look at your dads."
