Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson formally announced his presidential run in the 2016 elections. Carson, under the Republican ticket, is likely to be the only black person to run during the election.
“I’m willing to be part of the equation, and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States of America,” Carson said.
Carson hasn’t been shy about demonizing President Barack Obama, and hasn’t made any fans when it comes to his criticism of Black culture. Carson has called the president everything from a sociopath and has talked negatively about the Affordable Care Act.
Carson rose to medical fame after being the first surgeon to separate conjoined twins at the head.
