“Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson said Thursday evening that forces creating civil unrest in this country are manipulating race in order to create chaos and divide Americans.
During an interview with Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins at the virtual Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC, Carson said that, as a black child growing up in Detroit in the 1950s and 1960s, he saw issues with race “that would curl your hair.”
“You don’t see that kind of stuff anymore,” the retired pediatric neurosurgeon said. “We’ve made so much progress, it’s absolutely astonishing.”
And yet, in this election season, everything is race. And, obviously, it’s being manipulated along those lines. Things have changed so incredibly dramatically in this country, but in order to create the kind of chaos that’s necessary to make people want a change, you divide them, you divide them in every way you possibly can: by race, by gender, by age, by income.
He said the American people “are not each other’s enemies,” and that most Americans, when they sit down and talk to each other, agree on about 90 percent of issues. Those who are attempting to manipulate people “take the ten percent that you don’t agree on, and they just try to format that into the biggest thing in the world, and keep throwing it in front of your face. Night after night, day after day.”
.@secretarycarson on the civil unrest:
“Right now we’re looking at people clashing who believe in a system that is of, for, and by the people, and people who believe in a system that is of, for, and by the government.
Those are two very different things. @secretarycarson #VVS20pic.twitter.com/m5s9z3nGvs

Carson detailed how those causing the civil unrest are manipulating Americans:
And you combine that with the fact that, because of our history, which is imperfect – you know slavery and Jim Crow and all of these things that have happened – it’s relatively easy to convince some people, no matter how good their life is, that they’re victims. And that somebody else has created that problem. And, at the same time, you take another segment of society – white people – and you convince them that they’re guilty. They may be the nicest people in the world … but, because of the color of your skin, you are guilty and you owe. And it’s a bad combination – guilt and victimhood – and it creates incredibly bad policies.”
