Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson clapped back at Democrats on Monday for launching unfounded attacks against GOP Georgia hopeful Hershal Walker. Carson explained that it’s all part of the left’s attempts to divide the black community—Something they have done since slavery.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital following a Walker campaign rally in Toccoa, Georgia, Carson said it was inevitable that former football star would receive such criticism because of the color of his skin, and that such division had been happening for centuries.

“Well of course he’s going to receive criticism because you have to recognize that there has been an attempt to divide the Black community since slavery,” Carson said. “You’d tell the slaves that worked in the house they were better than the ones in the yard, the ones in the yard that they were better than the ones in the field. After slavery the light skinned ones were better than the medium skinned ones.”

Carson added that the problem was linked to the divide between liberals and conservatives across the country today, with each side calling the others traitors and keeping the country from working together to actually solve problems.

Walker has been the subject of sharp criticism for being a Black conservative and Republican, including from a number of liberal media figures.

Carson also warned that the U.S. was at risk of losing its republic, and said the Georgia runoff election between Walker and incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock was about “common sense versus ideology.”

“It’s so important because this election is not about people. This is about ideas. We’re talking common sense versus ideology. We’re talking about a country that is of, by and for the people, and a country that is of, by and for the government,” he said.

“We need to make sure that people really understand that distinction because there’s an attempt to divert attention away from the real issues,” he added, before referencing a famous quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin that the Founders gave America “a republic, if you can keep it.”


Georgia is just days away from casting the final vote in the runoff races. Currently, in the polls, Walker has the lead but we won’t have a firm determination until the 6th of December, at the earliest. Having Walker win would put more policy power in Senate GOP lawmakers hands and will be crucial in defending the Constitution against the liberal agenda.
