Democrats are racist in their own little ways, and Ben Carson is not their stereotype of what a black person should be.

How democrats think black people talk:

Ise ain't no ways tired

Dey gwine put you back in chains

Democrats see black people as incompetent and unable to succeed on their own, that is why they support affirmative action and handouts, they need to keep people in a state of dependency so they can get their votes for life.

If the attacks are about his background or race, then yes . If they are about his comments then no

Ben Carson has a very good shot at becoming the next president of the United States. It is amazing how many people liked him before he ever said he would run.

I also believe that many black people will vote for him and won't care if he is Republican. They will see that Ben has the interests of black people as well as all people.

People of all races will see the character of Ben Carson. His wisdom and intelligence is off the scale. Black people deserve someone who will be a great example of ethics, wisdom and reasoning. So many young black children will benefit to see this man become president.
What the heck have you been smoking? Carson's background as a surgeon only makes him smart in one narrow field. When it comes to general knowledge of the world, science and history his education is woefully lacking.

Carson is proving to be just as much of a clown as the rest of the GOP

I don't think it's racism. It's Hillaryism. Isn't he the one that beats her, one on one, by the highest percentage?

The thing about liberals is if you oppose anything that liberals can even remotely attach a non-white person to, and you can almost always do that, liberals always label it racism. Yet they viciously attack black conservatives but oh no it can never be racism. Double standard. They don't get to play that card exclusively.

Ben Carson doesn't get criticized based on who he is. He gets criticized based on the various utterly insane positions he holds and the completely crazy things he says on a routine basis.

Republicans have voted against things they support, including their own bills, just because they hate Obama. Democrats oppose Carson because his ideas are completely nuts.

Here's a shocker: I don't think so. At the same time, it is absolutely hypocritical for Democrats to say stuff like "Republicans hate Obama because he's a black man in the White House". We've been hearing that Republicans hate Obama because he's black since when, 2008? Why are Republicans held to a different metric than Liberals who very passionately disagree with Dr. Carson.

Liberals, here's the thing about the race card: it can come back to slap you in the face. Just don't use it.
The only way to get the left to momentarily shut up about any right wing politician is to hire a black, gay, handicapped bi-sexual tranny, with no legs, blind, in a wheel chair, and mute with the name "lucky". And even then they would be angry but overwhelmed about waht to do..they would probably leave it to the fat a$$ hags on The View, because theyalways have something negative to say.

Probably should rename The View to The Rude or, We Be Fat Chicks...
