From Renowned Brain Surgeon to “Super Tom” – Ben Carson’s Fall

People in the Baltimore area are well aware of Ben Carson’s mental issues. Now the whole country knows…

Ben Carson’s infinite fall from grace

If we use Ben Carson’s logic on enslaved “immigrants,” Frederick Douglass made it big after a plantation internship

“There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, who worked even longer, even harder, for less.”

That’s a quote from Secretary Ben Carson’s address to Department of Housing and Urban Development employees on Monday. I normally can’t tell when he talks if he’s sleepwalking, delusional or out to lunch, but this is low, even for him.

Watching Ben Carson is becoming more and more painful. As black kid growing up in Baltimore, Dr. Carson, the world-famous pediatric neurosurgeon, was hand delivered to me and my peers as a hero. Not anymore. All his accomplishments in science are diminished now, overshadowed by his infinite fall from grace. Carson’s gone from top doc to Donald Trump’s boy.

I’m not sure where the Republican Party found Ben Carson, but I’ll be glad when they send him back, and I’m not alone. His comments on slavery and immigrants have sparked an explosion of social media backlash, from memes to rants. Pundits are also chiming in on how confused Dr. Carson is about the difference.

On “Anderson Cooper 360″ last night, CNN’s Angela Rye pushed back against Carson’s comments: “Ben Carson said black people worked for less. I have breaking news for Ben Carson today,” she said. “We built this joint for free. We didn’t build it for less.”

Rye said, “So many things about black history, including our last black president, have been trivialized. Maybe I would just throw this away as a mistake, and maybe he just had a gap in his judgment and a gap in his memory, but he also has compared Obamacare to slavery. This is an analogy that Ben Carson tosses around.” Rye added, “He may have some severe misunderstandings about what American slavery really was and how it impacted lives including those of us who sit here today.”

If we use Ben Carson’s logic, Frederick Douglass made it big after his plantation internship, Harriet Jacobs went into servitude for the sole purpose of memoir research and Harriet Tubman was the best tour guide of her time. Carson’s actions have prompted many, including myself, to label him as an Uncle Tom. But we might be wrong about that: “Uncle Tom” may be too good of a title for the HUD secretary.

The term Uncle Tom originates from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The title character is portrayed as a God-fearing martyr who is fully dedicated to protecting his fellow enslaved brothers and sisters — so much so that he continuously exploits himself, sacrificing his own freedom and ultimately his life, for their well-being. We clearly know that Carson is a martyr for nothing but his own dwindling reputation and he has yet to display any of these characteristics, so that’s out of the question.

Let’s jump to the more modern definition of Uncle Tom: the sellout, a black person who goes above and beyond to praise, celebrate and honor whiteness; a person who would exploit self, family and friends all in an effort to gain acceptance from white people. Yes, Carson fits that description and has definitely earned the Uncle Tom title. There is one more layer, however, that must be acknowledged: Most Uncle Toms become Uncle Toms out of necessity­­. They develop these behaviors as a coping mechanism, as survival skills needed to excel in a racist society. (People constantly forget that slavery went on for more than 400 years and legally ended only 165 years ago.)

I understand where that mentality comes from. I don’t agree with it, but I understand the reasons why some black people code switch, wear golf pants and suppress parts of their culture with the hope of being accepted as the only black person on campus, the only black person to get that scholarship, the only black person on that cable news show or network. Again, I don’t agree with those actions under any circumstances, unless the person is doing it to create mass opportunities for others — which is rare.

Such people do have an agenda. Those Toms are launching their careers, unlike Carson who is already rich and accomplished. So why is he working for Trump’s administration, making these false and stupid statements about black history? Do we need a new phrase for guys like Carson?

Why would a person so accomplished and considered by many to be a hero — a genius even — use his remaining years on Earth to be a Trump slave? He’s trying to rewrite history and further dehumanize blacks, just like Texas textbooks. I never saw a person so hung up on white validation in my life­­. Carson has surpassed being an Uncle Tom: He’s now a Super Tom, and he can’t sink any lower than that.

Katrina Pierson Booted From White House

The one Chump Auntie Tomisina spokesperson who has virtually dissipated if Katrina Pierson. There apparently lows even the Chumph White’s Only House won’t go to.

Katrina Pierson denied White House job due to constant ‘drama’ and ‘b*tcImage result for Katrina Piersonhing’ about Sean Spicer: report

trina Pierson — the Trump surrogate who became notorious throughout the 2016 presidential campaign for making wildly inaccurate claims to support the president’s candidacy — has been very quiet over the past couple of months.

Although she officially joined a pro-Trump advocacy group called America First Policies this past January, Pierson has otherwise made very little noise on the national scene.

One Trump campaign source now tells Washingtonian that there’s a good reason for this — namely, Pierson was denied a position at the White House press office because she was incredibly bitter that the president chose Sean Spicer to be his press secretary.

“I love Katrina, but she was bitching to everyone that they should have chosen her and not Sean,” the official told Washingtonian. “It got back to Jared [Kushner] and Reince [Priebus]. And they ultimately decided they just didn’t want to deal with that sort of drama.”

Pierson’s surrogate work made her the repeated butt of jokes during the 2016 campaign, as she regularly made fantastical claims with no evidence to back them up.

Among other things, she blamed former President Barack Obama for the 2004 death of Muslim American soldier Humayun Khan, despite the fact that Obama was just a state senator at the time; she flat-out denied that then-candidate Trump had really proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, despite proposing exactly that; and she claimed that presidential candidates releasing their tax returns was a “novelty tradition,” despite the fact that it’s been done by every presidential nominee since the 1970s.

Uncle Ben Carson – “Slaves Were Hardworking Immigrants”

Slaves were immigrants?

Lived the American Dream?

Not only the Chumph is Looney Tunes… Several of his appointees are too.

Dr Carson in a first, being the first brain surgeon ta actually remove his own brain.

Ben Carson tells HUD staff: Slaves are ‘immigrants’ who came here to ‘pursue prosperity and happiness’

Housing and Urban Housing Secretary Ben Carson on Monday said that African-Americans slaves were “immigrants” who came to the U.S. with dreams of building a better future for their children.

In his first address to HUD employees, Carson warned that there would be “no favorites for anybody, no extra” services for any one group.

“One of the things you will notice in this department under my leadership is that there will be a very big emphasis on fairness for everybody,” President Donald Trump’s HUD secretary said. “Everything that we do, every policy; no favorites for anybody, no extra for anybody, but complete fairness for everybody. Because that is what the founders of this nation had in mind, and if you read the constitution, it becomes very clear that that was the goal.”

At one point during the talk, Carson reflected on how America was a land of “dreams and opportunity.”

“There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships who worked even longer, even harder for less,” Carson noted. “But they too had a dream, that one day their sons, daughters, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness.”

HBCUs and Trump

Interesting interview. Not sure where, other than Leli Baskerville, Roland dug his panel up from. The woman on the right hand side of the table, who isn’t identified is a world class Auntie Tommette, lying about what President Obama did for HBCUs.

The facts…

Under the Obama Administration, 1 million more African-American and Latino students have enrolled in college. What’s more, black and Hispanic students earned more than 270,000 more undergraduate degrees in 2013-2014 than in 2008-2009. This Administration remains focused on continuing to increase the number of students who successfully complete college. To that end, the Department has worked to make new opportunities available to HBCUs.

Federal funding to HBCUs has grown each year since 2009. Through the Higher Education Act, HBCUs received a $17 million funding increase this year—the largest increase for the federal Strengthening HBCUs program in six years. And President Obama’s FY 2017 budget seeks to maintain and strengthen these opportunities for HBCUs to build their capacity. The FY 2017 budget proposes $85 million in mandatory funding to HBCUs, an increase of $5 million from FY 2016, plus an additional $244.7 million in discretionary funds for Title III.

The Administration has also fought for and won a historic commitment to fully fund Pell Grants and expand student aid for millions of low-income students. Pell Grant funding for HBCU students increased significantly between 2007 and 2014, growing from $523 million to $824 million. This year, President Obama announced a plan to make sure that Pell Grants are fully funded, including inflationary adjustments, and used strategically by students to reduce time and cost for receiving a terminal degree. The President’s 2017 budget also proposes a $30 million HBCU and Minority Serving Institution Innovation for Completion Fund, to help students from low-income backgrounds overcome challenges and persist through graduation day.

The other facts –

grad-rates-2014-hbcu

The brutal truth is, at least the bottom half of these schools either need to be shut down or no longer receive federal support and funding. I would cut everything except the top 10 or 20. Close the doors on the rest, absorb them into their respective State Junior College System…Or install a granite marker where they used to be. Investing money in the top 20 schools would likely make a difference – especially in not throwing away money at the bottom 30. Spellman, Howard, Hampton, Morehouse, and Fisk have the capability to become competitive with the very best schools in America.

Time to cut bait or fish.

Don Lemon Tosses Trump Lawn Jockey Off CNN Network

Don Lemon just threw Trump Negro  off of CNN for lying about “fake news”. The subject was travel costs as related to the Chumph’s personal travel as “president”. Taxpayers are bearing unprecedented costs to protect his wife, living in New York, four children and their families, and the Chumph in the Whites Only House and the Mar-a-Motel-6 in Florida bursting the budget normally allocated for the protection of a real President and his family. Lemon’s parting words as he walked off set…”Don’t Come To This Network Again”

Lawn Jockey Football…Indeed.

Stacy Who? Gets Booted From Fox News

After dredging the sewers for Uncle Toms during the run up to the “election”, apparently Faux News has decided to do a Lawn Jockey reduction. First to be disappeared…Stacy Who? Dash. Employment opportunities are looking dimmer than midnight for the next 4 years.

Omarosa better look out too – because if she doesn’t get a job serving coffee in one of those short Maid’s outfits in the Whites Only House… She is next.

Twitter lights up as Stacey Dash is cut from the Fox News lineup

Stacey Dash may continue speaking her mind on politics and the news of the day, but it won’t be for Fox News.

Fox News has decided not to renew Dash’s contract, The Hill reported on Saturday. The network, which recently announced the hire of former U.K. Independence Party head Nigel Farage (“Mr. Brexit,” to Donald Trump), also terminated the contracts of columnist George Will, who left the Republican Party in June, Republican strategist Ed Rollins, journalist Martin Kalb and columnist and radio commentator Cal Thomas.

Dash, the conservative-leaning actress and alumna of Paramus High School most widely known for her role in the 1995 film “Clueless” opposite Alicia Silverstone, joined Fox News as a contributor in 2014. During that time, Dash, who appeared on various Fox programs including “Outnumbered,” often drew the ire of social media. She was criticized for her controversial statements about the Oscars (she rejected a boycott of the ceremony due to lack of diversity in the nominees and later appeared in a Oscars bit as the new director of a minority outreach program, Black History Month (she doesn’t think it should exist) and BET (she doesn’t think it should exist, either).

In 2015, Fox suspended Dash after she used profanity in criticizing an address President Barack Obama delivered in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting. In 2016, Dash suggested that transgender people should go to the bathroom “in the bushes” rather than use bathrooms corresponding to their gender.

Dash’s memoir, “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative,” addressed the advent of her relationship with Fox, which arrived at a good time for her, after she endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012 with a highly scrutinized tweet. (Dash said she had voted for Obama in 2008.)

“On the day that I spent my very last dollar,” she wrote, “the Fox check came.”

The Chumph’s “Mediocre Negroes”

Things got a bit testy on CNN yesterday as Don Lemon asked for comment about Steve Harvey’s kissing the Chumph’s ring.

Wow! That was brutal.

CNN panel goes off the rails when Marc Lamont Hill slams Trump apologist as ‘mediocre Negro’

A CNN panel on Donald Trump’s meeting with comedian and television host Steve Harvey devolved into a shouting match after a panelist accused the president-elect of parading “mediocre Negroes” through his office.

Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN contributor and professor of African-American studies, wondered why Trump hadn’t invited any black policy makers or academics but instead had met with black celebrities and entertainers.

“To keep bringing comedians and actors and athletes to represent black interests is demeaning, it’s disrespectful and it’s condescending,” Hill said. “Bring some people up there with some expertise, Donald Trump. Don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

Bruce Levell, executive director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and former GOP chair for Georgia, sighed audibly and challenged Hill to explain what had transpired at the meeting between Harvey and the president-elect.

“I don’t see how anything I’ve said would prompt that question,” Hill said. “Unless Steve Harvey turned into a policy analyst in the behind-the-scenes meeting, it doesn’t matter whether I was there. My concern is the people he’s trumpeting up and putting in front of the cameras.”

Levell kept reminding Hill he hadn’t attended the Trump Tower meeting between the game show host and former reality TV star, and he claimed the transition team had been reaching out to a diverse coalition.

“It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people,” Hill said. “And you are the prime example of that.”
