  1. I’m still learning from you, as I’m making my way to the top as well.
    I certainly love reading all that is posted on your site.Keep the stories
    coming. I liked it!

  2. John N says:

    On 9/11/15, during a press conference, Ben Carson corrected the errors of much of the progressive thinking here on RAAN with these words:

    “My beef with the Black Lives Matter movement has been, I think they need to add a word. And that word is ‘All.’ All Black Lives Matter,” said Carson. “Including the ones that are eradicated by abortions, including the ones that are eradicated on the streets every day by violence. We need to be looking at all the factors that have kept the black community in a very dependent position for decades.”

    More balance is needed here at RAAN regarding what is really wrong in culture as it affects the AA community, and the evangelical AA community in particular.

  3. Stephen Leonard says:

    As far as I can find, silence for seven years on Barack Obama, though you probably came into being since his election. But still plenty of time and reason to critique the philosophy and policy of the first Black President. Yet the first critique is how Ben Carson got it wrong. Is that a reformed critique or a progressive one. The church is in most need of a truly reformed view of culture and its characters. Not more progressive thought that clings to the failures in government care (uncare) for the AA community over the last 75 years or more. Carson makes more sense practically and theologically than your knock of him. I would hope for better in cultural critique out of an alleged reformed organization.

  4. William Portillo says:


    Dios creó al hombre a su imagen y semejanza y le plujo la diversidad. El dividió las lenguas en Génesis 11 para la gloria de su nombre de tal manera que en Pentecostés (Hechos 2:7, 8-11) podemos leer que los judíos dijeron: “Mirad, ¿no son galileos todos estos que hablan? ¿Cómo, pues, les oímos nosotros hablar cada uno en nuestra lengua en la que hemos nacido? Partos, medos, elamitas, y los que habitamos en Mesopotamia, en Judea, en Capadocia, en el Ponto y en Asia, en Frigia y Panfilia, en Egipto y en las regiones de Africa más allá de Cirene, y romanos aquí residentes, tanto judíos como prosélitos, cretenses y árabes, les oímos hablar en nuestras lenguas las maravillas de Dios.
    En America está viva y encendida la llama de la división racial. La unidad como nación es una utopía, sin Dios no es más que una utopía. Esa utopía solo será alcanzada con el retorno de Jesucristo. Por eso estoy de acuerdo con Castro quién dice y cita: “Our ethnic distinctions exist for the glory of God. We see in John’s glorious visions people from every nation, tribe, and language worshiping around the throne of God. These distinctions were God’s idea, and for the glory of his great name.” En el plan redentor Dios mismo tomo opción racial para cumplir finalmente su propósito redentor. La realidad racial es un tema de debate mundial y no importa que juegue el Barça contra el Real y que antes de comenzar el partido lean todo lo que quieran leer para pronunciarse en pro del anti racismo, una vez comience el partido se sacarán a sus madres y se exacerbaran los odios raciales sin que nadie lo pueda impedir. Déjenme mirar conforme al Espíritu y leer en esperanza Gálatas 3:28 (RVR1960): “Ya no hay judío ni griego; no hay esclavo ni libre; no hay varón ni mujer; porque todos vosotros sois uno en Cristo Jesús.”

    I agree with Alex. Your theme has merit, but your critique of Dr. Carson, based on one sound bite on race, doesn’t. Read what Dr. Carson says in broader context. When you see that your complaint that he doesn’t appreciate diversity is erroneous, then I hope you will issue an apology.

    Dr. Carson has a powerful healing message the U.S. needs to hear. Torpedoing his message based on a simplistic interpretation of a sound bite isn’t just irresponsible, it’s destructive.

  6. Scott says:

    Yeah, what we need are more race-conscious scum like Sharpton and Jackson. They sure are helping us get past this issue, right?

  7. Amanda says:

    Tyler, I think you could and should make your point with proof and persuasive arguments. Are vulgarity and racial insults really serving you well? Disgusting.

  8. Josh says:

    Ben Carson has spoken much more extensively on race, you might want to investigate further before calling him out on a 30 second sound bite.

    I for one would much rather have a president that encourages colorblindness to some degree than a president who dumps fuel on the fires of racial division.

    And Tyler… Sanders? haha come on guy this is a Christian site. Then again based on your language maybe he is the guy for you.

  9. Alex Lawhead says:

    Great article and I agree with you on everything you said here. However, the title of this article is a vessel to get page clicks/views. To make the assertion that Ben Carson is “wrong” and “colorblind” based off a 30 second response is ridiculous.
