Carson: Baltimore unrest wasn’t ‘a racial issue’:

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson decried the framing of recent Baltimore tensions as race-based in a speech at the Iowa Republican Party’s Lincoln Dinner on Saturday.

“I don’t think it was a racial issue,” Carson said. “The mayor of the city is black … many in the police force are black.”

Carson, a 2016 Republican candidate for the White House, said he was tired of “divisiveness” in politics.

“Not everything is a Democratic or Republican issue,” he said.

They failed to mention any of Carson's "solutions" to that economic unrest he was opining over during his speech. I'm sure everyone will be shocked to learn he was pushing for more tax cuts for businesses and those wealthy "job creators," deregulation, additional military spending and injecting even more religion into our politics.
