I thought that this was too crazy, even for Ben Carson, but it is what he actually said. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/12/08/1350278/-Dr-Ben-Carson-African-American-Conservative-Hits-All-the-Tea-Party-s-Wacky-High-Notes
"Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles …" ~ Dr. Ben Carson • photo: courtesy of Ben Carson http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/17/proportional-taxation-works-because-its-fair-to-ev/
It's disheartening that educated and classy individuals like Dr. Carson are labeled as "uncle Tom's" and say they're "acting white." Since when has being smart, educated, and classy been just a white thing? Are they saying blacks should be savages and stupid?
