ok, mr. Carson should not have compared believing in the democratic party to sloth but i have to agree with him that most blk folk voted for obama simply because he was "blk". even though he is bi-racial.

Who cares if they did. Do Korean American vote for the Korean Canidate. Aren't Republican hoping the Rubio will get more of the Hispanic vote because he is Hispanic.

Why is it that Blacks have to be examined and questioned about their votes?

Because they usually DENY this well-established fact.

Dr. Ben Carson is nothing but a well_condition UNCLE RUKUS, protecting his SLAVE MASTER'S PLANTATION. I will never ever understand these WEAK AZZ Black so-called leaders. They are nothing but begging little BOYS. These "CHILDREN" will sell their own parents & burn in hell before they fight against AMERIKKKA'S RACIST, GENOCIDAL & IMMORAL CONDUCT. They will protect the VERY EVIL RACISM that AMERIKKKA was FOUNDED on. They COMPLETELY IGNORE the past of the GANG RAPE against the BLACK QUEEN, the DAILY LYNCHINGS of the INNOCENTS in this HELL-HOLE. They even parrot the twisted words.... I love AMERIKKKA,They don't care about IMMORAL FILTH, the CRIMINAL WEALTH, the UGLY HUMAN " CHATTEL" just to be thrown a few SCRAPS. Some of the cruelest overseers the BLACK COWARDLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY INVENTED BLACK SLAVE. These little BOYS live to ALWAYS show white AMERIKKKANS that they are WORTHLY. They are such COWARDS.

ben carson is a doctor. he's a surgeon. that's what he spent his entire life studying. he's not a political leasder or someone who has spent their life studying the roots of social problems in america. why is he being allowed to make public pronouncements as if he's some kind of elected leader? I know it's a free country and people have the right to speak, but why is anybody even listening to his political views?

Now, I admire his work as a surgeon and his pioneering work on separating siamese twins and all. but to say that he became successful because he worked hard and took responsibility and that those are republican values, is just simpleminded bullsh8t. democrats and liberals like obama, clinton and many, many others worked just as hard and took responsibility for their life too. in fact, it was republicans who would still deny a bm opportunity no matter how hardworking and deserving that bm was. just goes to show you, the smarts it takes to be a great surgeon is very different from teh smarts it takes to be a great and perceptive leader.

You would think that with the perma ghettos there would be a realization of being used. And there are people being used. The people living in the ghettos and the people paying to keep the ghettos as they are. How can a person's ability be maxed if there is a caveat of living within a system of being paid off for doing nothing. Most people would do this. The fear of assimilation to the American brand and making an identity to it enforced by men and women who profit by it has condemned African Americans to a lower level of living and the taxpayers to the same. These men and women should be admired. Instead they have a reputation as kiss azzes and are heckled and laughed at by their own as their own keeps surviving by collecting a check from someone else's hard work. Every ethnic and cultural group in America and on earth knows this including Africa except African Americans. The sin of false pride and reinforced resentment is strong and makes them weak because of it. So the acceptance to the American dream is by kicking and dragging that costs several times more then it has to. Rebuilding war torn areas in a few years or formerly oppressed areas where the people are hungry for growth puts massive shame to what has happened here in America as African Americans have mistrust and a false belief in a loss of identity uniquely their own that does not exist in the home continent as to theirs.

Yet Dr. Carson has contributed more to the advancement of medicine than you can even fathom.

What have you done to enhance the lives of mankind?

90% of nutball hollyweirdo celebrities are treated as wise liberal political pundits and you liberals have no problem at all with that. Do they teach Economics 101 and Political Science at Acting Schools and just forgot to advertise it? NO. You're a hypocrite.

The only things Republicans are trying to deny are massive entitlement programs that keep poor Black AND White people in poverty because they have no motivation to improve their lot in life. Democrats WANT Black America addicted to entitlements because that's how you keep the parasitic lemming voters voting Democrat. You hate slavery, but you're quite happy to slave away on the Democrat plantation while many white Democrats laugh at you for your naivety.

Don't piss off your Democrat Massahs. You might just lose some of your free stuff that the rest of us have to pay for.

Because Black Americans have become the most racist people on the planet. You won't truly be free until you learn to vote for the BEST candidate instead of the DARKEST candidate. Until that happens, your ass belongs to the Democrat Party.

White Americans evolved the point where tens of millions of them helped elect and re-elect a black president. When will Black America evolve???

The only people that don't have to have fingers wagged in their collective faces about personal responsibility are the bankstas. They lose 6 billion again in 2012, trading in derivatives, and not one carted off to jail.

"why is he being allowed to make public pronouncements" - that is just an idiotic thing to say. have you heard what comes out of the mouths of politicians lately? and what gives THEM the right to be listened to more than anyone else? dr. carson has read and studied a whole lot about this country. if you had read any of his books, you might know this...
