But it’s also the case of a man such as Carson and his ilk that serve a calculating purpose. They get attention for the GOP.

It’s the ‘work twice as hard and be a credit to your race’ speech that all Blacks have become accustomed to, but it sounds awkward coming from President Obama, not because of who Obama is, but because of what Mr. Obama does and does not represent.

Dear Bishop E.W. Jackson: It’s me, Melissa. May I call you “E.W.”? Because I’ve heard what you’ve had to say about your politics. And quite frankly, it’s pretty disgusting.
