Ben Carson: Underneath it all

Dr. Carson in 2013   (Public Domain)
Presidential candidate Ben Carson is nearing the top, mainly because of his emphasis upon what’s underneath it all.

During the first GOP debate, Carson’s astute reply to a question about race relations gained him much popularity among conservatives.

Here is a partial quote from that reply:  I was asked by an NPR reporter once, why I don’t talk about race that often.  I said it’s because I’m a neurosurgeon…  you see, when I take someone to the operating room, I’m actually operating on the thing that makes them who they are. The skin doesn’t make them who they are.  The hair doesn’t make them who they are…

Dr. Carson went on to emphasize that America is called the United States rather than the divided ones. He cautioned against those who would divide America by overly focusing upon racial tensions.

A dedicated member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Carson is often praised for his character and faith.
