Dr. Carson thinks no one in America has ever been hungry.






FIG. 1.
Data from 3,139 counties in the U.S. Quintiles are cohorts of counties ranked by the percentage of people living with poverty. Quintile 1, the wealthiest quintile, includes 630 U.S. counties with a mean county poverty rate of 8.2% (median household income, $56,259). Quintile 5, the poorest quintile, includes 629 counties with a mean poverty rate of 25% (median household income, $32,679). A: County age-adjusted obesity rates by poverty quintile. B: County obesity rates vs. county leisure-time sedentary rates (sedentary adults are those who report no physical activity or exercise other than at their regular job). C: County sedentary rates. D: Age-adjusted diabetes rate by poverty quintile.

Please reconcile professor....


Perhaps he has trained in a system that allowed him to witness this phenonomen firsthand. Perhaps he is an educated observer of trends that no one likes to bring up. Perhaps his particular specialty is one that does not lend itself to frickarounditis.

PS: If I ask my kids if they are hungry every hour the remainder of the day, they are likely to respond yes, excluding the times they are physically stuffing their face (this can be said about the majority of our populace, rich or poor).

You criticize conservatives for seeking out a "token."

But then admit, "We look at demographics to decide campaign strategy."

Sounds hypocritical to me.

It's not racism on my part, it's that I genuinely think Allen West, Herman Cain and Ben Carson are Republican black men that got recognition and fame because they were black and white guys in the party thought they'd be able to say,"See?! We has a black one, too!!!"
So you're claiming it's not possible for a Black person to make on his merit, only his color? That's as racist as it gets.

I find it just wildly interesting that in the last 5 to 6 years, America's obsession is with the black politician (for obvious reasons).

Where was Herman Cain, Dr. Ben Carson, Adam West etc, 5 years ago?

Well, minority status has, in many areas, become more important than qualifications.

Do you really think these are the first prominent Republicans of color?

Condeleezza Rice, JC Watts, Justice Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, Ken Hamblin, Alan Keyes, Alveda King, Martin-Luther King, Mia Love, James Meredith, Rod Page, P.B.S. Pinchback, Tim Scott, Thomas Sowell, Lynn Swann, Walter E. Williams all say "Hello!"

As a Christian, I admit at times I am hypocritical. Why can't the left see and admit when they do the same? Is it because they truly believe they are above hypocrisy or is it the ends justifies the means thing?
