Desperate to put down an intelligent black man I see.

The fact is Carson met with General Westmoreland and was recruited to go to West Point.

White liberal evolutionists believe black people are less evolved, so having a black man smarter than they are disrupts their world-view.

As is typical with liberals, evidence is discarded in favor of things you make up in your mind.

I've completely lost track of what we've discussed and haven't discussed regarding Dr. Carson. Has anyone mentioned his painting of himself buddying up with Klingon Jesus?

Um, I know these people. And I've had more than one tell me that they would under no circumstances vote for a "Nigger."

Who said anything about a problem? Personally, I find that painting hilarious and not at all problematic. I mean, based on the painting alone, how sure are you that the dude with his hand on Carson's shoulder is supposed to be Jesus and not, say, Kahless?

B.S. No white liberal evolutionist of my acquaintance has ever expressed such an opinion to me, and I don't hold it, myself. I'm quite certain that there are many black folk (men and women) smarter than I am. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, I'm pretty sure, is one of them. Ben Carson, not so much.

So, you're saying you did grow up in an area where lots of people were openly and unapologetically racist, and still are? 'Cause I sure as heck did.

Anyone who says that one ethnic group is more [or less] "evolved" than another has just demonstrated that they don't understand evolutionary theory.

I don't practice neurosurgery. I'm a lawyer; it would be stupid of me to try to operate on someone. (Besides the lack of training, my hand-eye coordination is abysmal.) I did, however, score an 800 on my LSAT, back when 800 was the top score, and my combined score on the GRE was 1550.

Riiiiight. I'm sure I've just imagined all those instances. All those family reunions when my brothers-in-law went on at length about how much they dislike and distrust "Niggers," for example, and other such experiences.

You didn't, they were really in your mind. You really do think there are different races of people in the evolutionary progress.
