    Or has he denounced his people just for the glamour of being friends of the rich and famous white elites.











    "Calling the reaction to the George Zimmerman a “frenzy” and “polarization,” Dr. Ben Carson urged people to pause and look at all the facts in the case before rushing to judgment.
    “I think it would do us all well to step back and do something that I always suggest before rushing to judgment, put yourself in the place of the individuals involved,”the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at John Hopkins Hospital said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.”

    “We need to be saying what can we learn from this rather than allowing ourselves to be whipped into a frenzy with no evidence from what I can see that this was preplanned or that there was malicious intent,” said Carson, who became well known politically after challenging President Barack Obama’s economic policies at a prayer breakfast earlier this year.
    Carson added, “None of us knows what we would do if somebody is getting the best of us in a fight and we have a gun. There are a lot of implications here that need to be talked about.”
    Saying the term “racist” was thrown around too easily, Carson suggested taking a step back, saying, “We really should look at all the facts before we start impugning people with that name.”
    Carson, who is black, also addressed use of the term white Hispanic – which some media outlets are calling Zimmerman — saying it was “hilarious” and said, “Why don’t we call Obama a white African-American? This is craziness. Why do we get so involved in superficial words when we should be looking much deeper at people and at situations?”

    (a) Pause and look at the facts
    The facts are clearly to be seen a young black man was racially profiled, was murdered.(since your comments were placed in Newsmax a jury found Zimmerman not guilty and a judge acquitted him.)

    (b) Put yourself in the place of the individuals involved.:(
    Which one of the individuals would the doctor put himself in. Not Trayvon for sure. Dr. Carson go tell this to Trayvon's parents. They have lost a child.
    (c)“We need to be saying what can we learn from this rather than allowing ourselves to be whipped into a frenzy with no evidence from what I can see that this was preplanned or that there was malicious intent,”
    Dr. Carson I will say what we can learn from this.
    • The life of a black man is worth nothing
    • White folks can do as they please and the racist judicial system will help them.
    I believe this doctor has reached the top of the academic and economic ladder and now cannot even identify with those who are part of his people. I remember a few years ago I bought the book which he wrote, Gifted Hands for my son who was in college.. This man grew up poor and his mother worked hard to give him a good education. Dr. Carson Trayvon Martin is DEAD. No one including his parents would never know whether he would be a neurosurgeon like you. His life was snuffed out.
    I am so ashamed to see black intellectuals who to mind are are afraid to speak up. I am sure IF the doctor was speaking out about the injustices of the judicial system and the racist overtones which this case received Newsmax.com would never print his comments.
    Dr. Carson I am really not impressed. There is no time when one should straddle the fence.
