In a commentary posted Tuesday on his website, West, who represented Florida in Congress after an extended career in the U.S. military, confronted the issue of racism.
Citing Obama Attorney General Eric Holder's warning that schools must drop policies that "disproportionately punish minorities," West asserted it's not racist to punish blacks more when they are causing more trouble.
West said the violence on campus "was perpetrated eight out of 10 times by black students, male and female, but it had nothing to do with racial disparity."
He said Obama's and Holder's advocacy for leniency for those who cause trouble essentially makes them racist.
