CPAC: All Black People Look The Same?




|| By FITSNEWS || With so few black people in the “Republican” party – to say nothing of the so-called “conservative” movement – you’d think they would be pretty easy to identify.

Apparently not, though …

Take the biography of 2016 “Republican” presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson prepared in anticipation of this weekend’s big 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference.  And yes … this is the American Conservative Union (ACU) group that’s had a less-than-stellar record of embracing anything other than straight WASPs.

According to CPAC’s bio for Carson, the renowned neurosurgeon grew up in “a single parent home with dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper, and low self-esteem.”  But thanks to his mother’s love, he “persevered and today is an emeritus professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.”

Impressive?  Indeed … although Carson’s speech at a recent Tea Party gathering in South Carolina was panned by this website.

Anyway … what made the CPAC bio of Carson so interesting?

Take a look …

Yeah … that’s not Carson. That’s U.S. Senator Tim Scott (a.k.a. the other black Republican).

To its credit, CPAC has since fixed the error … but not before getting mercilessly mocked.

“Wonder who put that program publication together?” one South Carolina GOP operative posted on Facebook.  ” (Scott) has never had facial hair since I’ve known him.  Nor does he wear glasses.”

Yes … but both are black.
