I am pissed. Insulted. Exasperated. Horrified. Totally outdone. The audacity of Dr. Ben Carson to either be used or allowed himself and black people to be made a mockery of during this presidential campaign by making a trifling, low budget rap ad is a new low, even for him. I just can’t comprehend through all of the rhetoric he spews about picking yourself up by your own boot straps that he really thinks that cutting a rap ad means you are speaking to black people in a way that they could understand. What? Are you kidding me?
“Reaching them on a level they appreciate and follow, and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election,” Doug Watts, Carson campaign spokesman, told ABC. Really, dude? Whatever.
Granted this is an approach to reach “young” black voters, but um you can’t reach them with a WHACK rap. I mean it is really bad and sad…but it mostly makes me mad. Yes, you see how I made my words rhyme? That’s how bad the rap is. They could have given me that $150K. Money totally wasted.
In response to the frenzy over this craziness, Dr. Carson said this:
“There are people in the campaign who felt that that was a good way to do things and, you know, they’re entitled to their opinions,” Carson said Thursday at a book signing in Florida. “I support them in doing that, but you know I probably would have taken a little different approach.”
Wait. Wait. Wait! So, Dr. Carson when you say you would have taken a little different approach it says to me that you may not have thought it was a good idea but you went along to get along. And you are running for the President of the United States? Oh. Ok. Whatever!
Here’s my final thought on Dr. Ben Carson, his run for President and the rap ad. Dr. Carson said “Freedom is not free and we must fight for it every day”. Yes, Dr. Carson, you are right. The freedom that I’m fighting for is to free us all from this Ben Carson presidential run. #Freedom #SetUsFree
