Is Ben Carson really an Idiot? Or does he just sound like one, like Trump?

First off I try to stay off Trump Talk because as a black man I am expected to be Democrat and hate Republicans. I'm supposed to pity the poor and ridicule the rich for not sharing their money with the rest of us. I'm supposed to support every Head Negro In Charge (HNIC) and condemn every white man with power because apparently they've had enough power as it is. 


I'm and individual. I was raised as a free thinker. I was raised around plenty of successful (booshie according to poor black folk) hard working, home owning black men and women. I went to private and public school. I grew up around Bloods and Crips (Real Nxggas). I went to summer camp at USC with racist white pricks. I went to church with a black pastor. I went to church with a white pastor. I had many white people from a church I hadn't been to in at least 3 years, come visit me and pray for me in the hospital. I've had terrible experiences with cops. I've had cops let me off with warnings. I grew up with a cop. 

I tend to walk the line of reason over emotion, and that causes a lot of trouble with black family members and friends. 

I'm of the rare black folks that did not idolize President Obama simply because he was black. He is not on my black Mount Rushmore next to Mandela, King, and Malcolm X. I appreciated his eloquence and his confidence but I also realize that he is still a politician with strings getting tugged in every direction. 

I also am in the minority of minorities because, though I did not support Trump or Killary Clinton, I am stilling willing to respect my countries choice and give him a chance. 

With that said, let's get to this fool Ben Carson.

First off, this is what the negro said:

"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," Carson said. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land."

Here is the video:

You will also see this comparison being made to what Obama said about slaves being immigrants:

First off. How do I feel about comparing what the two said? Negro please. 

One person (Carson) is basically that saying during the three week journey rotting on the bottom of a wooden boat, dying of malnutrition and disease, watching mass suicides of men, women, and children (cargo to slave masters) jump overboard to shark filled, freezing cold waters, was ALL worth the cruise through the Middle Passage, because of the "dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land." 

The other person (Obama) said this:

"Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more."

Now after some research, I am willing to admit Ben Carson had good intentions. He does have a few other questionable quotes that make me weary but I don't think he meant harm. Had he used more words like involuntary, against their will, torture, beaten, etc., he may have come off as somewhat respectable. He might even have gotten a couple more black folks on his side. He is already hated in the black community simply for being a black Republican. Then he supported Trump. Then, when Trump actually won, the negro actually took a job in the white house, in housing and urban development of all places. 

One think about black folks, once you piss us off, you can almost never be trusted again. Even the most religious of black folks follow this code. In fact, they are usually the worst perpetrators. 

But me. I'm a guilty at times, but a little different.

This is the Ben Carson I knew:

My mother gave me this book at a very young age and he was some what of a hero to me. I remember wanting to be just like him when I grew up. He was right up there with Jordan, Tiger, and Jackie Robinson. He is probably indirectly responsible for me being in the medical field right now.

Nowadays though I prefer this brotha to Ben Carson:

Yes, you read it right. I prefer Cuba Gooding Jr. to Ben Carson. The brotha who has a habit of playing negros who have become unfavorable in the black community.

I probably supported Carson a lot longer than I should have. I actually thought for a time that Trump would make him his vice presidential candidate, but who needs two inexperience idiots running the country.

Then came the quotes:

Ok Ben. I will give you that Democrat from the 1850s to the late 1940s were pro-slavery, pro-segregation, flat out racist. BUT let's get some stuff clear. First off, when Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, and George Washington Carver were born, black men couldn't even vote. Black women were not allowed to vote until 1920 and only George Washington Carver lived to see that. The same Carver that had his nuts chopped off by his masters so that he couldn't rape there daughters. Finally, Martin Luther King Jr. never openly supported a political party, but he did say that when he did vote, he tended to vote Democrat.

Now I do believe Obamacare sucks for many, but worst thing since slavery? Get the fxck outta here!

I won't even get into gay topics because I know the drama that brings but this was a terrible example. I go to prison, get brutally raped, and now I gay. See, I wasn't born gay, I was raped gay. Why Ben? Why?

Should we cut Ben some slack. Call me a Ben Carson apologist but yes, I think we should. 

Like Obama said:

I think we are still in the phase where the loosing party is still butt-hurt they lost. As far as I'm concerned, Democrats, this is what you get. You got comfortable for eight years, you trusted a media machine that constantly feeds you lies, you voted for an unworthy candidate with a history or crimes, lies, and manipulation. You could have had Bernie Sanders but no! You chose Hillary. Not because she was the most qualified, but because she was a woman. You chose her because she wasn't and old white guy. You thought there was no chance she could lose. You call Trump racist and sexist when in fact, in your own way, YOU are just as racist and sexist. You vote because someone is black, or a woman. you vote because you don't want the other side to win. You don't vote for local politics that actually affect your daily life yet you complain constantly about the hand you were dealt. That is what you get!

I don't feel sorry for you. No one forces you to choose sides between Republican and Democrat. Why can't someone support abortion, gay marriage, low taxes, and stricter immigration laws? Why can't a black woman choose to be a religious, wealthy, Republican? Why because of YOU!

You may think Ben Carson is an idiot, but is he a bigger idiot than you?
