(THE COLLEGE FIX) – The University of Buffalo’s Black Student Union held a town hall meeting this past Monday to “open up about their emotions without judgment” regarding the appearance — and subsequent protest — of Allen West almost two weeks ago.
West, the former U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, U.S. representative and Texas GOP chairman, was invited by the campus chapter of Young Americans for Freedom to give a speech titled “America is Not Racist.”
