Ben Carson says race is being manipulated to create chaos and divide this election season

Appearing at the Value Voters Summit, HUD Secretary Ben Carson made the argument that race is being manipulated this election in order to create chaos and divide.

“This election season, everything is race.” Carson explained “and, obviously, it’s being manipulated along those lines. Things have changed so incredibly dramatically in this country, but in order to create the kind of chaos that’s necessary to make people want a change, you divide them, you divide them in every way you possibly can: by race, by gender, by age, by income.”

Discussing civil unrest Carson said “Right now we’re looking at people clashing who believe in a system that is of, for, and by the people, and people who believe in a system that is of, for, and by the government and those are two very different things.”
