Former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar gets trounced after he attacks Ben Carson in unbelievable way

Its seems as though Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has officially gone off the deep end according to many who’ve read his recent article about top-tier Republican presidential contender Ben Carson.

Former NBA star, Abdul-Jabbar blasted Carson for having “muddled and pious policies” that go “against our Constitution.”

Abdul-Jabbar wrote in a Time op-ed Wednesday:

However, [Carson] chose to run for president of the U.S., and that’s bad for African-Americans. His repressive, muddled and pious policies and opinions often run against our Constitution—but his questionable proposals will likely, thankfully, be doomed by his lack of political expertise. His presidency would be marked by even worse gridlock while he wastes his time trying to impose his narrow and sometimes ill-informed morality on the other 319 million people in the nation.


But that’s not the worst of it.

That’s right, Abdul-Jabbar accuses Carson of perpetuating black stereotypes – in a bad way.

And it would definitely not be good for African Americans to have a president who flounders helplessly in office because it would perpetuate the stereotype that blacks can’t be effective CEOs, quarterbacks and leaders.

That little “revelation” had folks on Twitter wonder what Abdul-Jabbar could be thinking. Carson sets a bad example that blacks can’t be effective leaders? To be clear, Carson is a world-renowned neurosurgeon who led teams of doctors under enormous pressure during endless hours of intensely stressful operations. That apparently, is all ho-hum to Abdul-Jabbar, but thankfully, was not lost on others:

Carson has done the worst sin imaginable to the political left – defied its perpetual narrative that the black community must remain beholden to big government dependency. And now, political pawns like Abdul-Jabbar will do whatever they can to twist fact to fit within their narrow spectrum of reality.
