Dr. Ben Carson: White liberals are "the most racist people"

Dr. Ben Carson, an up-and-coming African-American in the Republican Party is being taken to task tonight after making these controversial comments on Mark Levin's conservative radio show.

Levin: You're attacked also in many respects because of your race. Because you're not supposed to think like this and talk like this. A lot of white liberals just don't like it do they?

Carson: Well you know there the most racist people there are, because they put you in a little category, a little box, you have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?

Carson says white liberals have been attacking him after he criticized gay marriage saying, "No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn't matter what they are. They don't get to change the definition."

But are liberals really trying to take down the black conservative, or do they have a point?

Outfront tonight: Mary Curtis is a blogger for the Washington Post, and Niger Innis, the chief strategist for Teaparty.net

    It is mostly white Liberals who want citizens disarmed. They compare all gun owners to mass murderers. They are bigots.
