Ben Carson stopped by “The View” today while promoting his new book “One Nation.”

The conservative superstar and retired neurosurgeon was asked by actor Terry Crews if he thought the current welfare system is racist. Ben Carson — who was raised by a single mother in Detroit — said, “When you rob someone of their incentive to go out there and improve themselves, you are not doing them any favors.”

“What would be much more empowering is to use our intellect and our resources to give those people a way up and out.”

Actor Terry Crews promptly agreed.

Carson also answered questions about whether or not he was still thinking about making a presidential run. “It is not something that I desire to do, and my hope is that someone will come along that excites the people, who really understands what America is all about, and really doesn’t want to change it in to something else.”

“If that happens, then I won’t do it, but I have so many people asking me, and as a patriotic American, I certainly have to think about it.”
