Carson Tackles Race Issues in Harlem, Calls for 'Family and Faith'
Dr. Ben Carson, speaking to reporters outside Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem, N.Y., today said that the problems in the African American community can only be solved through family and faith.
"What I feel, instead of people pointing fingers at each other and just creating strife, what we need to be talking about is how do we solve the problem in the black community of murder," Carson said. "For a young black male, in the inner city, homicide is the most likely cause of death. That's ridiculous."
"Most of those occur at the hands of other young black males. We need to be talking about, 'Why is that occurring?' We need to be talking about, 'How do we instill values into people again?' And those are family and faith."
On "The Kelly File" tonight, Carson said that people are starting to listen to his message.
He revealed that many people came up to him while he walked the streets of Harlem and voiced their support.
"The stuff that I'm talking about has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats," Carson said. "It has to do with America and what kind of nation are we going to have and what are we going to pass on to our grandchildren."
