As the waters recede in parts of Houston, Beaumont, Port Arthur and other areas of Texas impacted by the horrific Hurricane Harvey, the agony of recovery efforts has begun.
Hello, may I speak to Ben? Ben, this is Herman. I know you don’t know me, but I thought I’d give you a call because I understand what you are going through. I know what it’s like to be called a house Negro because they call me a house Negro, too, and if being like the rest of these darkies is the only way to get rid…
I’ve tried very, very, very hard over these past few years, but I just can’t muster much anger toward Ben Carson for the ridiculous and dangerous things he says. Perhaps because he carries himself like a man who goes to Home Depot for the ambience and spends his days saying things like, “I have a wide foot, so I…
Editor’s note: We revised this post after Sen. Cory Booker’s representatives contacted us to say that T-Bone is a real person.
Dr. Ben Carson, secretary of housing and urban development, said in an interview released Wednesday that poverty is a “state of mind” children learn from their parents, and that a “certain mindset” contributes to people living in poverty.
Most of the country seems to agree that Donald Trump is a bad president, but does that mean he will be removed from office or even impeached? No, it does not.

The woman who has fueled Islamophobia, railed against the mythical encroachment of Shariah law and gone on national TV to disparage a 14-year-old student for having the gall to build a clock while being Muslim, has been hired by the Trump administration and noted dick stabber Ben Carson to work in the Department of…
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was only on his third stop of a two-day Miami visit when he got trapped in the elevator, but I’d like to think that the elevator was actually in “the sunken place.”
This episode is filled with people we hate, HBCU presidents, Ben Carson, embarrassing fat moments that Ms. Patti Patti and I bond over, and Donald Trump’s usual foolishness. But first, an apology.
Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson proved Monday that he knows absolutely nothing about slavery. Then Samuel L. Jackson proved that he has no problem calling the head of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development a dickhead.
Someone, please go get Uncle Ben; he’s out here making an ass of himself again.
On Thursday, shortly after Ben Carson was confirmed as secretary of housing and urban development, White House press secretary Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer tweeted out this:
I’m really reaching my threshold with this president. On Tuesday he visited the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and made a tone-deaf, rambling speech. While we’ve become used to his stream of consciousness attempts at public speaking, Trump’s ability to just flat out act as if…
In a so-called listening session last week to kick off Black History Month, some African Americans surrounded President Donald Trump at the White House, including former Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault and GOP political commentator Paris Dennard.
President Donald Trump was surrounded by all his blacks on Wednesday. That’s right; Omarosa Manigault and Ben Carson were there to hear Trump shout out Frederick Douglass like he was a new artist coming out on Trump Records, during what I believe was supposed to constitute some form of Black History Month appreciation.
TV Host Steve Harvey met with President-elect Donald Trump for a meeting at Trump Tower in New York City on Friday and took to Twitter to explain why.
