    Gosh oh hell no. I know a black Ethiopian who holds a doctors degree in engineering. Back in 1971 I sold a home to a black man who was a nuclear engineer.

    Not all blacks are socially low intelligence sounding. Some like the man you do not like, such as Dr. Ben Carson a good republican are definitely not low intelligence sounding.

    My heart surgeon is a black doctor and he is one fine person and doctor as far as I can tell.

    Ben Carson probably needed a schorship to pay for college but he did not need AA to qualify

    difference is that the above are legal. It's not legal to fake athletic ability or to hire somebody to commit fraud against the SAT company.

    My guess is that the minimum bribe for USC is over $500k, probably in the millions.

    I bet they would have gladly accepted it and admitted her daughter on an honorarium. It had more to do lying to all their friends about what a great student she was and how she got admitted to an ivy league school I guess.

    Ben Carson developed several life saving surgical procedures over decades of neurosurgery.

    You can't fake that and its a high stakes field.

    Before he ran as a republican, democrats LOVED him.

    Leftists made movies about him, just 10 years ago.

    But then he had to wander off the democrat plantation.

    Ben Carson's major problem is he gave up the con jobs by the Democrats, asked the right questions, got good answers and joined the republicans.

    I want to ask just you.

    As a graduate of this graduate level school, with Ivy leaguers, how can you support Democrats?

    Was it your teachers? Was it your family? My own family were very very strong minded Democrats. i voted only democratic party until i was around 42 years old. I was so devoted to Democrats republicans hated my guts.

    I finally woke the hell up.I made the change to Reagan when he beat Carter, my final Democrat I voted for.

    What is your story?

    How do you know there wasn't a white guy with the same or better qualifications as him at the time?

    I voted for Reagan. I have voted for some Republicans since then.

    I woke the Hell up. The last Republican that I voted for was Norm Coleman when he faced Al Franken.

    The GOP has moved away from people like me.

    I mentioned my heart surgeon, the black man.

    Jon C Walkes.

    The overall average patient rating of Dr. Jon-Cecil M Walkes is great. Dr. Jon-Cecil M Walkes has been rated by 23 patients. From those 23 patients 10 of those left a comment along with their rating. The overall rating for Dr. Jon-Cecil M Walkes is 4.3 of 5.0 stars.

    He left my city around 2012 and is in TX. The man is awesome. Rather than use a leg vein he used a vein in my mammary and he did not stitch my chest up as normal but used a special glue. He did use stitches to close the rib cage though. (folks, it might have been an artery vs the vein. But I am not the expert on this, Dr. Walkes is.
