Could Ben Carson Be the First Black President of the United States?

Could Ben Carson be the First Black President of the United States
Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. has yet to announce any intention to run for President of the United States in 2016 but, if does so and actually wins, he would make history by becoming America’s first black President. Such a statement may raise eyebrows but is, nevertheless, true; the current President is not ‘black’ but biracial, since his mother was white.

Ben Carson and Barack Obama could hardly be more different and the former’s life story is one which the latter only wishes he could have told to complete his entirely fabricated image of an ‘ordinary’ black kid made good.

Whilst Obama can claim no commonality with, or knowledge of, the experiences and culture of black Americans, Carson actually lived them. The assumed birth-state of the President, Hawaii, boasts a black – African-American – population that is less than 2.5 percent of the total and was, doubtless ,even smaller in the 1960s. By contrast, Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up in the inner city. Obama received an early education in Indonesia and then at one of Hawaii’s most exclusive high schools; again, he inhabited a world entirely devoid of African-American experience and influence. Ben Carson attended a tough inner-city high school.

The entire Carson early biography, in fact, would have been Obama’s dream back-story; raised in poverty on the gritty streets of Detroit by a poor, hard-working single mother who taught him the value of a good education even though she, herself, was a high-school dropout. Barack Obama simply does not know what it means to be black in America. Ben Carson certainly does; both by experience and by genetics, he is, quite simply, far blacker.

In fairness, Carson has never been a community organizer, but he has been a world-famous surgeon, a philanthropist and a motivational speaker. He was, practically, the poster-child for a ‘underprivileged ethnic minority’ yet rose to the top of his field, proving something that liberals are so desperate to keep hidden from blacks and Hispanics; that any individual can better themselves, by their own efforts, no matter what their background or skin color. No surprise, then, that Ben Carson is a Conservative. Were he announce for the Presidency and actually win the GOP nomination, liberals across the country would witness something that would make their collective heads explode; hundreds of thousands of supposedly racist Tea Party supporters enthusiastically cheering on this black man. Were Carson to become America’s first black President, those evil, racist right-wingers would be dancing on the rooftops. Maybe – just maybe – right-wingers don’t actually care about the color of a person’s skin but – to borrow from another famous black Republican – the content of their character.

Carson has, of course, been on the receiving end of the Left’s racism – like every other black Conservative and Republican. Speaking with Conservative talk show host Mark Levin, he summed up the Left’s race-based dislike of him: “Well, they’re the most racist people there are,” Carson explained to Levin, referring to liberals, “you know, they put you in a little category, a little box – you have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”

The organization behind the campaign to get Carson to run for President raised more than $3.3 million between the beginning of July and the end of September this year. As of Tuesday, the campaign says it has raised more than $10 million, in total. Among the more Conservative Republicans, Carson is certainly one of the most popular potential candidates. On Carson’s own website, however, there is no indication of his intentions, unless one chooses to read between the lines. “I maintain that as of today it is not my intention to seek public office. Instead I will continue to strive very hard to not only expose what is happening in our nation, but also to suggest ways to regain a direction that will lead our nation towards freedom and justice for all.” Tellingly – or perhaps not – the statement continues “If God has other plans for me moving forward, I am certain he will make those clear and I will always listen.”

Numerous questions remain: Will Ben Carson run for the GOP nomination? Can he win? More importantly: Can Ben Carson defeat whichever candidate the Democrats put up and become the first real black President of the United States?

    This is an older post…. for Dr. Carson is running. My thoughts: “If God”, and it would appear that God is involved. Could it be that ‘Peradventure’ for 10, God will have mercy and not vengeance? Could it be that God will stay His hand against this vile, willful nation of God haters, for extended time to win some souls? There is one most important thing that must be done right now, this moment. His campaign has a com prayer line on Mon nights. Attend. If God is indeed involved, then let us ‘Peradventure’ for the 10′. Go to his site and join. Let us see if God will have mercy.

    Yes, he could be the first black President. And he could be the first African American President. Obama is not black–he’s mixed, mulatto or biracial. And Obama is not African American because African Americans are the descendants of Africans enslaved and brought to America, which Obama is not.

    Obama is Kenyan-Irish or Irish-Kenyan. So Obama is the first mixed, mulatto or biracial President and he’s also the first Kenyan-Irish or Irish-Kenyan President.

    I hope that he will be the next president. The actual president said that is black but in real life he is a joke for the black community(also he is not black black). Let’s see if Ben Carson can represent better the African American community. Also… it will show that he really is smart and black… what proud should be the African American community!

    It takes an extraordinary life to even consider someone for President, who has not held a political office. It also helps that our elected officials are doing their jobs so horribly that being a politician is actually a mark against your character than for it. It remains to be seen if someone without any previous political office could be president, but if someone could do it, Ben could.

      I agree with your comment. Perhaps what we need is someone who doesn’t have a background in politics; career politicians – on both the Right and the Left – have not served us well. You use the word “extraordinary.” I think Carson is, indeed, an extraordinary man.
