    Ben Carson’s great betrayal: How he ignores history in favor of the Republican Party

    The Republican presidential candidate propounds a pernicious view of America. Here's what's at stake



    ... Being part of a community that is “the miner’s canary” and “moral conscience of a nation” can exact a heavy burden. As such, some black folks have decided that the burden and obligation are too great to carry. Their shoulders are too narrow and weak.

    Ben Carson, black conservative and 2016 Republican presidential primary candidate, is one such person. Last week, Ben Carson surrendered to xenophobia, nativism, and intolerance when he suggested that Muslims are inherently incapable of being President of the United States because their faith is incompatible with the Constitution ...

    I just can't put my finger on it but there is something just not right with this man. Before I even knew his position on certain things he just gave me a, "I will say whatever it takes." to get in the White house. Look at him! He's not bad looking or anything like that he just has that snake in the grass look. Maybe my opinion will change later on down the line.

    Our shoulders are narrow and weak? IMO, he is the black trump, and the black race is his his biggest target. Here is a black man that is trying to win by taring down his own people. Now maybe some one should have told him that folks can't win on one group of votes alone. So if he hink he has the black vote, he is going to be in for a big surprise. Has he met with any black folks yet like in a town hall meeting yet? If not, he's going to have to switch up.

    Peace!

    A new grassroots movement has emerged

    He's also expected to help halt it

    After all

    Since it's becoming a real challenge to the status quo

    It also undermines his dreams and schemes

    fyi

    What a piece of work, this guy!

    Ben Carson to NASCAR Fans: Confederate Flag OK ‘if It’s Private Property’


    [​IMG]

    Presidential candidate Ben Carson, the only black person playing in the 2016 Republican presidential field, gave the nod for NASCAR fans to continue flying the contentious Confederate flag, the Associated Press reports.

    Carson made the announcment Monday, which is the same day he snagged an informal endorsement from NASCAR racing icon Richard Petty. The two men appeared together at a camp for children with disabilities that is organized by Petty's foundation. And while Petty didn't explicitly say, "I endorse Ben Carson," he still said that he kind of was endorsing him.

    "We're hoping he's endorsing the camp; we're not necessarily endorsing him, but we are—you know what I mean?" the living legend told AP in a brief interview. "He's very humane ... that's one of his strong points as far as we're concerned."

    Yeah

    Ben Carson's has been pretty cautious and clever up to now

    But he's also just been playing the role of the peacemaker

    So I and we have to be far more intelligent and wiser etc

    Also since so many of our elders are black christians etc

    Hence their faith based judgement calls are bound to be directed at us all

    fyi
