As long as Deen Freelon thinks the way he does, Dr. King’s dream that we’ll see people for the content of their character rather than the color of their skin will remain unfulfilled. He looks both at the Republican Party, and at Dr. Ben Carson, and only sees skin color.

Dr. Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon whose reputation is beyond reproach. He’s beloved in Maryland both for his personal story and for his philanthropy. But none of that is good enough for Deen Freelon, now that Dr. Carson has come out as a man who thinks and speaks for himself.

I won’t call Freelon’s tweet hateful or racist. It’s just ignorant, of history and of basic right and wrong. And sad.

For what it’s worth, while Dr. Carson is a neurosurgeon, Dr. Freelon is an assistant professor in political science and social media. Basically, he’s a professor of Twitter. But more liberals are now likely to listen to him than to Dr. Carson.

Bryan Preston has been a leading conservative blogger and opinionator since founding his first blog in 2001. Bryan is a military veteran, worked for NASA, was a founding blogger and producer at Hot Air, was producer of the Laura Ingraham Show and, most recently before joining PJM, was Communications Director of the Republican Party of Texas.

"I won’t call Freelon’s tweet hateful or racist."

Why not? Because that is exactly what his tweet is. He is insinuating the bigoted liberal meme about how blacks can only be liberal, otherwise they are an aberration, not "authentically" black.

If Dr. Carson does decide to run for POTUS in 2016, expect the pitchforks to fly, particularly from the black elite establishment.
