He's been open and honest about his childhood since day one. Those claims were made by him, on his own volition, rather than being an attempt to smear his character. He was a kid and he has turned his life around. Those stories will have zero impact on his ability to be elected POTUS, at least among Conservative voters.

It was a joke. If you took it as serious then it's my fault, and my apology. Of course he didn't go into the surgical profession because he likes to cut people. The joke was that he tried to stab someone once and missed, so became a doctor as a way to stab someone - a joke.

Racism is never a joke nor a laughing matter. We, as a society, should be rising above it by now.

Actually, I see a lot of people capitalizing on racial stereotypes today with regard to Ben Carson...stupid, insane, deceptive. We all know what those words are code for.

That sir, is the best way to put it.

Calling racism a joking matter is better left in the 60s.

Racism??? Where did you get racism out of my post? It's a joke about a person who said he tried to stab someone as a teenager and missed, and then became a surgeon. In this instance racism is in the eye of the beholder, and not the way I look at it.

I feel bad for Ben, he seems a nice guy, I don't understand why the media is after him.

This will be the reality TV presidency, might as well be Trump,

Yeah, but can you really blame Conservatives for this kind of thing?

If it weren't for double-meanings, what would Conservatives say?

(PS, I think the words you're looking for are "urban," "lazy," and "low-information.")

Are Conservatives really "playing the race card" now?

What's next for Dr. Carson supporters? Suggesting Caitlyn Jenner as a running mate?

Anybody here able to substantiate outside of the mainstream talking heads on whether the op is correct in iterating the topic point?

If not, bin this thread as just another digital unsupported blurb. Hoax.

I wish the media would of vetted Obama like they do the Republicans then we wouldn't be in the mess that we are in. No worries Carson can always get a job at NBC, they let you make things up over there.



Vetting Obama, like his birth certificate controversy? The fact that he was only a community organizer before a Senator? Accusations of his involvement with the mob (because he's from Chicago of course)? But nah, the media were NEVER critical of Obama. /sarc

Human Beings should be Vetted regularly.

I don't know what to tell you, Krazy ... I only know what I read.

Some days, like today, I can't believe what I'm reading, but nonetheless.

Personally, I think it's a partisan issue, in general. Some of the comments made about Herman Cain were reprehensible, too. Republicans and democrats can be vicious when it comes to hating one another -- there's really no depth they won't sink to.

I'm pointing out that there's a clear track record of the media and the more vocal left assailing the character of African Americans who dare run on a Conservative ticket. THAT is absolutely racism. The only way it could be any more racist is if we traveled back to the 60s and 70s when liberals called black Republicans "race traitors" and "Uncle Toms."

Who has ever heard of calling it racism when an African American was being abused politically?

(I'm being facetious; I only have three words - Barack Hussein Obama.)

Can you give an example? I've honestly never heard that.

(I was 4 or 5 at the time.)
