Dr. Ben Carson: Obama’s not helping race relations in America

Hush, Rev. Al Sharpton. Retired pediatric neurosurgeon and author, Dr. Ben Carson, has weighed in on race relations in the U.S, and conservatives want to hear him.

Speaking to Ginni Thomas of The Daily Caller, Carson said he believes President Obama’s “redistribution ideology” has hurt race relations.

Some of Obama’s policies, Carson said, have led a lot of people to “think that that’s all that the blacks want — they want to get our money and to get our wealth, and they think that we owe them this and that, and of course there are a lot of people of all races who do not believe that.”

Carson told Thomas about a reporter who once asked him why he doesn’t speak about race very often.

“Because I’m a neurosurgeon,” Carson said he answered.

He elaborated, telling Thomas:

You see, when I take some one to the operating room and I cut the scalp, and peel it down, and take off the bone flap, and open the dura, I’m actually operating on the thing that makes that person who they are. … Their skin doesn’t make them who they are. The cover has nothing to do with who they are.

But you know, people who tend to be superficial. You know, superficial things mean a lot.

People who tend to be deep are able to see through that and evaluate a person for who they are, and that’s what Martin Luther King meant when he said judge a person by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin
