I have been reading a few articles and Facebook comments on Dr. Ben Carson and his wife. I find it really disturbing that people would make unnecessary comments against Dr. Ben Carson’s wife for no reason! She isn’t running for Presidnet…her husband is! She is an accomplished woman and should be respected no matter how you feel about him. As an African-American woman, I find it disheartening that Mrs. Carson would be the subject of jokes! Let’s see she is the wife of a successful top neurosurgeon, married for 40 years, have three sons that are all educated, a triple major student at Yale University, holds an MBA, head of the Carson Scholars Fund program which awards 2nd-11th graders scholarships, and is a concert violinist…sounds pretty accomplished to me!
I can care less what she wears because her resume is pretty impressive. Dr. Ben Carson did not marry a dummy or someone with no class. He married an accomplished woman in her own right who should be respected. I don’t support Dr. Ben Carson and his candidacy for president but I won’t be a part of the “let’s bash Dr. Carson wife movement” ! Why do we find the need to bash wives of African-American leaders or candidates? I have seen this done heavily to President Obama’s wife and now to Republican candidate Dr. Ben Carson wife. Yet, I could name a few wives that should be included in the bashing movement…Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan, and the list goes on! Let’s show some respect and give these men kudos for marrying successful and talented women! Concentrate on the candidates versus their wives!
