If there’s one thing Black Lives Matter hates, it’s black people who disagree with them.
They consider them “race traitors.”
And Black Lives Matter is furious at Ben Carson after what he said about Critical Race Theory.
Ben Carson is proof that no matter where you start, you can become wildly successful if you work for it.
From humble upbringings, he became among the world’s top neurosurgeons, and later the Housing and Urban Development Secretary.
Black Lives Matter would have you believe that is an impossibility.
They preach the idea of “white privilege,” where success in life is decided by the color of someone’s skin, and that black people are oppressed, making them unable to move forward in society due to so-called “systematic racism.”
Carson rejects that, and realizes that his success was due to his hard work.
Speaking at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit, he attacked Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project, which are both promoted by Black Lives Matter.
“Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, what is that really about? It’s about dividing people. It’s about creating the kind of division and strife that allows control. We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘divide and conquer.’ That’s what it’s about,” he said.
He went on to state that kids shouldn’t be taught that slavery was uniquely American, and that what makes the U.S. unique in the story of slavery is that they fought a civil war to end it.
“Slavery is not unique to the United States of America,” he said. “There’s been slavery since there’s been societies in the world and today there are more slaves in the world than there were in 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was put forth.”
“It was a horrible, horrible institution, but we are not unique in that sense. We were unique in another sense — we were willing to fight a civil war to stop it. That makes us very unique. And that’s what we should be teaching our children,” he added.
Carson concluded the point, “Yes, it was horrible, but that we had enough people with the moral rectitude to recognize that this was not something that we could stand for no matter what the economic gains were, and there were people who were willing to give their lives to stop such a horrible institution from flourishing in our country.”
He later blasted the idea of kids being taught that they are responsible for the sins of their ancestors, and that those whose ancestors were oppressed should be permanent victims.
“What would that do to a young person? And if that’s not enough, you may not be a girl or a boy. Now how are you supposed to develop an appropriate self image with all of this coming at you?” he asked rhetorically.
