Ben Carson is now the Secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. Before that, he ran for President. Before that, he was a surgeon… a highly skilled surgeon with a great education. Education doesn’t necessarily equal smarts. During his first speech as Secretary of HUD, he basically said slaves were immigrants dreaming of prosperity and happiness. Personally, I think they were just dreaming of not being chained to the cargo hold of a boat. How can someone in office be cursed with such shocking ignorance?
