People Called Dr. Ben Carson a Traitor to Black Americans – Then He Schooled Them in True Carson Form


Conservative presidential candidate, Ben Carson, visited the heart of Harlem and turned back charges that a black Republican can only be classified as an ‘Uncle Tom.’

And he did it in a way that only Carson could – through soft-spoken, cold, hard facts.

The retired neurosurgeon used his calm demeanor to eviscerate the name-calling and finger-pointing, and told the black community that “they need to actually listen not only to what I’m saying, but look at my life and look at what’s been done.”

Via BizPac Review:

Ben Carson might be soft-spoken, but when he hits back against accusations he’s an “Uncle Tom” or some kind of traitor to black Americans,  his message speaks volumes.

And he brought that message to the heart of Harlem on Wednesday.

“What I feel, instead of people pointing fingers at each other and just creating strife, what we need to be talking about is how do we solve the problem in the black community of murder,” Carson told reporters in front of the landmark Sylvia’s Restaurant.

“For a young black male, in the inner city, homicide is the most likely cause of death. That’s ridiculous.

“I’d say they need to actually listen not only to what I’m saying, but look at my life and look at what’s been done,” the retired neurosurgeon told reporters. “It is the things that have been done that elevate people. Not things that impress people and make them dependent.”

Carson went on to explain to the African-American community that they’ve been duped into thinking Democrats care about their well-being, citing a statement once uttered by a progressive hero.

“Well, I think it is because the Democratic Party has ascribed to the Lyndon Johnson philosophy. I don’t know if you know, but Lyndon Johnson said, ‘If you give those N-words such and such, they’ll vote for us for the next 200 years,’” he explained.

Carson finished by saying the Republican party just needs to articulate their platforms on lifting the black community out of poverty as opposed to leaving them dependent on social programs.

“What the Republican Party needs to do is come out and discuss more the kinds of relationships and the programs that will actually bring people out of poverty,” he explained.  “That will also give them the ability to use their God-given talents to rise rather than to simply be satisfied in a dependent position in society.”

Comment: Why do you think African-Americans are so quick to judge a black Republican as an ‘Uncle Tom?’

    When Donald Trump is leading the Republican contenders you have the audacity to blame the Democratic Party for your lack of minority support. Clearly, self-awareness is not your strong suit.

  2. Adrian says:

    Gotta love this man. He may actually be able to repair the stain Obama has put on the “black” image. I hope he will be in the next Administration as running the FDA or the VA.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    1. Terry says:

      Adrian, what stain on the black community are you talking about. Talking heads like you are the ones who has stained this nation. What contribution have you made to society?

    2. Terry says:

      He’s running for president not what you think he should be.

  3. Damaine says:

    I see what he’s trying to say, but his comments on about Black people being “duped” are incomplete.

    Aside from the way that Conservatives have a BAD habit of talking down to minorities, what really brought Black people over to the Democratic Party was way in which both parties responded to the Civil Rights Movement…

    cemented by the so-called “Dixie-crats” departure from the Dem party, followed by them being welcomed into the Republican party with open arms.

    Dr. Carson is BRILLIANT. Megyn Kelly isab itch!

  5. Priscilla says:

    The black community has been coached by the people who use dependency actually to subjugate them even more and make them believe what they “hear” rather than explore and “read” what people actually say and do. As a 40+ year educator I can honestly say that the key to success and TRUE equality for all races, creeds, ethnicities, and sexual preferences is education and self-respect. Dr. Ben Carson is a self-made MAN..(not to be called “black/white.red/yellow”…he is a good man who can elevate the image of America around the world. I (a southern lady) will definitely vote for him.

  6. Don says:

    African Americans are quick to judge Mr. Carson as an uncle tom stems from being indoctrinated by the democrat party with what are not real facts. Such as do not vote for the republicans, they are the rich and detest you while we care for you. It has given them an entitled mentality. The fact is that the democrats are the ones who keep you down and unable to work towards the common good of the community.

    People hate to hear the truth.
