It’s no secret that Ben Carson is a man who does not know how to bite his tongue, now he’s causing a stir this week as Hip Hop is the new victim to his comments

According to The Grio, while doing a radio interview with WBLS-FM this Easter Sunday, the possible GOP presidential candidate told hosts Bob Slade and Bob Pickett that Hip Hop has nothing to do with Jesus,

When I talk about the Hip Hop community, I’m talking about the aspect of modern society that pretty much dismisses anything that has to do with Jesus Christ. That’s what I’m talking about.

As people listened in disgust, Carson continued to stand his ground and not back down from his comment,


We need to reestablish faith in our communities and the values and principles that got us through slavery, that got us through Jim Crow, and segregation, and all kinds of horrible things that were heaped upon us.

He went on to say…

Why were we able to get through those? Because of our faith, because of our family, because of our values, and as we allow the hip-hop community to destroy those things for us, and as we grasp onto what’s politically correct and not what is correct, we continue to deteriorate

Is Ben Carson wrong about hip hop? Does hip hop have nothing to do with Jesus?
