Thank you for pointing out more successful intelligent competent black leaders. My two heroes Walter E. Williams and Thomas Sowell have been telling blacks the truth for years, but it seems they are heroes only to white Conservatives like myself. Add to these outstanding men Herman Cain and the remarkable Reverand James David Manning and a handful of others and maybe the relatively juvenile black community will begin to listen to the truth these exceptional men speak and begin to grow up. Dr. Carson has gotten a lot of attention, but he is lacking in understanding of the Constitution because he cannot understand the simple phrase, "shall not be infringed" regarding our right to keep and bear arms. He might get straight though.
