    Such great news...this one statement of Dr. Carson's alone is proof... “These government engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson wrote in the Washington Times. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”

    For all the bluster and bs going in this country these days; the only evidence of a desire for segregation is coming from minority college students - not Dr. Carson. Report the news; drop the knee jerk editorializing!

    Come on Ryan. You can do better or MPA needs to get someone better. Sourcing the Washington Compost for your articles? Really? How far left are you trying to slant MPA?

    To quote your article "and with the housing crisis reaching new heights across the country,". DO you understand the crisis reaching new heights is a result of having "highly experienced" people in charge. It appears you SHOULD agree with Dr. Carson, the social engineering is failing. Dr. Carson is a breath of fresh air.

    It is a great idea to put someone with high intelligence in the position, instead of a historical government worker, who has bias and years of warped mentoring as their guide. What has been put into play in the past has not worked, and has arguably caused the issue of the financial crisis. Creating affordable housing does not start with risky lending products, but perhaps less regulation around housing construction in the massive vacant land available. I think Dr. Carson either knows this or will figure this out, once all information is presented to him.

    As per all of trump's picks, Carson is another one with a lot of money. He has zero qualifications for the job except the black guy get housing. We are doomed. Carson admitted he was not equipped for a federal job until he was offered the one he wanted. trump called Carson a pathological liar and talked about his hitting his mother with a hammer and stabbing someone in the belt. Ridiculed him and now taps this inept person to run a major cabinet position. What a mess!
