Unsubstantiated charge. Back it up.

Blacks don't expect their lives to change depending on the occupant of the White House. We aren't that naive after this many centuries in this country. We know better.

Ben Carson will not change my life one bit no more than Obama did. My life got better over the last 7 years, but it hasn't had a thing to with who's the president.

I've got plenty of common sense, and i wouldn't vote for Ben Carson for dogcatcher. I'd vote for him to be my brain surgeon however.

Frankly, if i'm gonna vote for a Republican, it'll be Rand Paul. That makes far more sense than voting for Ben Carson.
You got all that from a simple comment, your over thinking. People vote for the person who they think will make life better it's pretty simple.

Remember the claim "you didn't build that"? It was an attempt to downplay successful people and insinuating you couldn't have done it without the government.

It's the same as the "you didn't build that" statement.

Ben Carson is dangerous because he is a prominent, successful black man who embraces conservatism. That's why he is a threat to liberals and democrat dominance over blacks, because he is showing a road to success that does not require government support.

Big threat to government power over the people!

It would be interesting to see what happens if Dr. Carson got the GOP nomination. On one hand, Democrats have won 95-88% of the black votes since the beginning of this century, and have never gotten less than 70% for several decades. But to be fair, the GOP had never nominated a black presidential candidate, so this question is unknown, just a bunch of people making (sometimes educated) guesses. Dr. Carson will undoubtedly pull off some black voters from the Democrats. But how much?

However, it is also unquestionable that some (I don't know what percentage) white Republican and Independent voters would either stay home or vote for a white Democratic candidate, solely because Dr. Carson is black. Don't believe me? Do you think that members of KKK, Aryan Nation, and the like (most of whom with party registration have been found to be Republicans) would vote for a black guy? Never. That's just an obvious example to illustrate this point, not to say all or even most Republicans are racist.

So who knows.
