#nationalafricanamericanmuseum Special note: yes there is an exhibit dedicated to Dr. Ben Carson. I admit that it might be hard to see considering alot of the things he has said and done in office and in the media. But before his words and actions as a part of the current presidential administration, he was one of our black history heroes. And I know this is hard to hear, but he still is. We as a society cannot take away the amazing things he did as a doctor that made him make history in the first place. His current behavior and words are wrong. Period. But we also can’t discard what he did that was magnificent and amazing and life changing. Our heroes are a funny thing. When they do things to make people rejoice, we put them on a pedestal. But when they make a choice with their words or actions that cause damage we want to yell and scream and tear down their legacy. I wonder what would happen if we see these people as human beings that are participating in damaging behavior and not monsters because they do the behavior. I’m not defending Dr. Carson, I’m just saying that I will still celebrate his past achievements while at the same time not condoning his present behavior. The world is not black and white, it’s gray. There’s room for both schools I’d thought.
