Ben Carson Catches Heat for Striking Anti-Discrimination Focus From Housing Agency's Mission Statement

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is being widely condemned for plans to slash anti-discrimination language from HUD's mission statement in favor of language that emphasizes "self-sufficiency."

I view people like Carson as the worst of the worst in the repug. party. People who start out life poor and at the economic bottom, rise up the wealth ladder, and look down their noses at the poor. That’s bad enough, but this SOB wants to make it even harder for those at the bottom.

Different day. Different government agency. Same old discriminatory shit.
