GOP presidential wannabe Ben Carson said the nation’s first black president doesn’t understand black Americans because he was “raised white.”
The neurosurgeon-turned-politician questioned Obama’s black “experience,” alluding to the president’s white mother.
“He was, you know, raised white,” Carson said in a Politico podcast. “I mean, like most Americans, I was proud that we broke the color barrier when he was elected, but … he didn’t grow up like I grew up.”
