Ben Carson: GOP Should Be Focusing on Black Communities
GOP Should Be Focusing on Black Communities They’ve ‘Neglected’
On Fox’s MediaBuzz today, Ben Carson talked to Howard Kurtz about how the Republican party should be doing more to reach out to black communities they’ve “neglected.”
He said the GOP should be more effective at touting their history as a party that believes in and liberty for freedom for all; a party that already has prominent African-Americans in its ranks and “should push for hard work and self-reliance.”
When Kurtz pointed out that the Republicans generally get single digit numbers when it comes to the black vote, Carson expressed confidence that black people this time won’t “just blindly follow someone because they say do what I tell you do to.”
He said the GOP should “pay attention” to them and help give them the tools for success.
