Dr. Ben Carson, former famous neurosurgeon and former HUD Secretary in the Trump administration, says that the massive negativity that has infected our culture has created conditions that make it very hard for kids today to just be children.
Making an appearance on the Newsmax program Cortes & Pellegrino, the former neurosurgeon said, “there used to be love in our society. We had a Judeo Christian foundation, which said love your neighbor. Now you’re seeing a situation where we say, ‘hate your neighbor. Cancel your neighbor if they don’t agree with you.’ I think this is a very difficult environment to grow up in. And then you know you have a situation where the color of your skin…is the primary determinant of what happens to human life.”
Carson’s comments on the show come not long after he published an op-ed on The Washington Examiner that shares similar statements and thoughts.
“We are in the midst of an all-out, unprecedented assault against our nation, wholly separated from facts, evidence, or love,” the doctor writes in the op-ed.. “Critical race theory is just one piece of that revolutionary movement being forced upon our children by those we have allowed to take control of our education system.”
“It is a movement that seeks to transform every area of society based on a divisive, dystopian, totalitarian vision,” the op-ed goes on to say.
But Carson states if he believed those things when he was a kid, he would not be where he is today.
And part of the narrative being pushed on kids Carson highlights, affecting their self-image, is “if you’re a white kid… you’re a racist. You’re an oppressor. You caused everybody else’s problems… If you’re a black kid, you’re a victim, and it doesn’t matter what you do.”
But “it doesn’t mean that people don’t have obstacles in their life.” What school teaches us, Carson states, is overcoming obstacles, not becoming victims to them.
Carson is right.
The radical left in the United States has been working tirelessly for many years now, especially during Trump’s time in office, to make Americans hate each other.
They’ve managed to divide us by race with critical race theory, which they are teaching to our kids, making them hate one another. Liberals have also split us along political lines, creating a fractured nation that refuses to sit down and talk to each other like rational human beings.
Let’s hope the future generations get on the right path despite all the obstacles in their way.
