Dr Carson went to Harlem yesterday.
If you didn’t see him on Megyn Kelly last night, you’ll want to watch that fabulous interview. The thing that really got me was when he said that it’s so terrible that young Black men are killing young Black men and they have to be shown that “Black lives really DO matter…” (and not just when they think Whites are killing too many of them);
How utterly profound……there are Black men chanting”Black lives matter,” and the number of Blacks killing Blacks is sad and astonishing………I thought this obvious irony was a magnificent way to put it, don’t you? Hats off to Dr. Carson.
Here are some tidbits from THIS GOOD ARTICLE:
He said that African Americans needed to return to “family and faith”, which he said were “the values and principles that got black people through slavery and segregation and Jim Crowism.”
“As we throw those things away we’re seeing terrible crimes occurring in our communities,” he said.
He also blamed Democrats for racial inequality, saying “the Democratic party has subscribed to the Lyndon Johnson philosophy”, which he defined by paraphrasing an apocryphal quote from the former president: “if we give those N-words such and such, they’ll vote for us for the next 200 years.” (Z; it’s questionable if LBJ said that, but the point sure stands, doesn’t it).
But, let us not get too excited…...”Yvonne Boyd, selling CDs on the sidewalk of Malcolm X Boulevard, had far less patience for Carson and Republicans at large. “Well, he ain’t gonna do nothing for us,” she said. “I think that the motherfucker ain’t gonna do shit.””
Thanks, Yvonne, we’re impressed by your open mind, glad you’re desirous of standing on your own and willing to listen to someone who actually might help you. Not.
THINK CARSON HAS A CHANCE? HE’S REALLY, REALLY RISEN IN THE POLLS.
