  • Ben Carson’s BLUNT Retort To Critics Who Call Him ‘Uncle Tom’

    GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson shot back hard against accusations that he is an “Uncle Tom” or some kind of traitor to black Americans during his visit to 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,” he said. “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 said. “It is the things that have been done that elevate people. Not things that impress people and make them dependent.”

    Carson presented one reason why the black community monolithically votes Democratic and what the GOP needs to do to in order win it back during the Harlem press conference.

    “Well, I think it is because the Democratic Party has ascribed to the Lyndon Johnson philosophy,” he said. “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.’”

    “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. 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.”

    He explained that the root cause of criminal behavior is the single parent household, which is very prevalent in the black community.

    Carson continued describing the relationship of blacks and the Democratic Party on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” Wednesday.

    “People who don’t truly respect you, who don’t really see you as an equal, but just take care of you in order that you take care of them,” he said.

    He said a woman approached him in the airport and told him she loved him despite being a lifelong Democrat, and that many people came up to him while he walked the streets of Harlem and voiced their support.

    “The stuff that I’m talking about has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats,” Carson said. “It has to do with America and what kind of nation are we going to have and what are we going to pass on to our grandchildren.”

    Carson who was raised by a single mother in a poverty-stricken section of Detroit, has received world-wide acclaim for decades as a brilliant neurosurgeon.

    He first gained politically notoriety following a keynote address he delivered at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast during which he blasted the commander in chief’s policies, criticizing everything from President Obama’s political correctness to Obamacare — as Obama sat only 10 feet away.

    The left-leaning “Daily Kos” attacked Carson a week after his speech with a hit piece headlined, “Dear Ben Carson, When A Person Has to Deny Being an Uncle Tom, It Usually Means They Are One.”

    Carson has elevated in the polls following the first GOP presidential debate last week.
