Ben Carson made an inspiring speech about how if you poor you can make it out by working hard. But because Ben Carson is black, liberals and Black Lives Matter are furious at him for not being a victim. According Ben Carson poverty is a “state of mind.”
“If everybody had a mother like mine, nobody would be in poverty. She was a person who absolutely would not accept status of victim,” explained Carson.
“You take somebody who has the right mindset — you can take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee you, in a little while, they’ll be right back up there. And you take somebody with the wrong mindset — you can give them everything in the world — they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom,” said Ben Carson.
He also went on to discuss how a “strong sense of morals” can keep you out of property. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews angrily responded to Carson by claiming that there is a “difference between poverty and being broke.”
