Dr. Ben Carson, who served as U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary under former President Donald Trump, had a few choice words to share over the weekend about Critical Race Theory.
“Neurosurgeon and former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson took on critical race theory in a recent interview, calling it ‘a bunch of garbage,'” according to The College Fix.
“In an interview Sunday on NewsMax, Carson was asked to define critical race theory.
“‘It’s an attempt to use race as a mechanism for redefining our society,’ Carson said. ‘It wants our people to believe that your race is the most critical determinant of who you are and what happens to you in our society. In other words, it’s a bunch of garbage.’ [emphasis added]
“Asked about Marxist influences on critical race theory, Carson cited Vladimir Lenin’s famous quote: ‘Give me your children to teach for four years and the seed that I plant will never be uprooted.’
“Leftists ‘know the importance of getting into the school systems and indoctrinating the young people and that it will have a permanent effect. We are already starting to see the seeds of that,’ Carson said. [emphasis added]
