Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, questioned how those painting “Black Lives Matter” on public streets would respond if someone were to paint a Confederate flag on a public street.
Carson, who made the remarks during an interview on Fox News with anchor Martha MacCallum, noted that there is a difference between “black lives matter,” which is a statement of support for the black community, and Black Lives Matter, which is a “Marxist-driven organization.”
