Respectable Negroes Don't Like The Right's Ben Carson

Give me strength.

I watched Ben Carson's CPAC speech last night and wasn't impressed - the man's hardly electrifying. But I noticed Chauncey DeVega (of the blog We Are Respectable Negroes) watched it, too, and he really ain't havin' it. 

This is how the drafting of Ben Carson looks to blacks.

He ain't havin' it, he ain't havin' it, and, as far as he's concerned, this-will-not-stand:

This is NOT the version of "Good Times" I'm used to watching.

A placebo? Wow - a homeopathy metaphor! I like this guy. It IS funny how the very people who claim not to see race, all of a sudden, have found a black man to run with their philosophy - and they know it's an obviously hypocritical race play (and an attempt at racial manipulation) but, desperate, they're plowing ahead anyway, no matter how it looks.

This black? Good luck with that.

Whites (and Ben Carson himself) seem confused. Sure, blacks notice when a new player is on the field, but it's not like we see another face like ours and lose our minds. It's insulting. Any black person will see through it. And - especially because of that - Ben Carson will appeal to very few.

All aboard the night train!

Hell, considering the readership of We Are Respectable Negroes - and TMR - it appears he's lost more than few already,…
