Both men have different views and paths for black America. Is one better for, or more representative of, the black community?

Sharpton appears to represent blacks as they are these days. He looks like a pimp from a 70's blackploitation flick.

Dr. Carson, on the other hand, is what black America *should* aspire to.

And no, blacks aren't "all individuals". No bigger group votes in lockstep than the American Negro.

Ask the victims of the Tawana Brawley fiasco..or perhaps the Duke lacrosse team.

I mean, Rev, Al's track record shows he is always in search of the truth..

So following your 'logic', whites are not "individuals".

Ah, that's the correct term as any dictionary will tell you. Your post is an out and out lie.

You were doing okay until that last little quip. By the way, Dr. Carson is what all Americans should aspire to be.
