Cancellation of Ben Carson: The Detroit school board votes to change the name of the school named after the world-renowned surgeon and philanthropist.

Ben Carson was born into poverty, but he managed to overcome many obstacles to become a world-renowned brain surgeon. He also held a position in Trump’s White House cabinet, but despite these accomplishments, he is still considered an outcast. A Detroit school board has voted to change the name of a high school named after the outright hateful racist known as Dr. Ben Carson.

A Detroit school board has voted to change the name of a high school that is named after the utterly hateful racist known as Dr. Ben Carson.

Not The Bee said: “It’s the definition of a success story for black Americans. But because it is conservative, it must be erased”.

Carson graduated from Southwest High School in Detroit in 1969, but this year the district is asking the school board to change the name from Ben Carson High School of Science and Medicine to Crockett Midtown High School of Science and Medicine. The pressure to change the name came from the fact that its namesake after Carson worked as housing secretary in the Trump administration. Apparently, a large number of students, alumni, staff, parents and the community are in favor of this change.

Fashionable : To Juving-Brunet: URGENT, did AJB see clearly before the others with the “FFL” – FONCIÈRE FINANCIÈRE LIBRE? Why ? Because a revolution is happening in the USA right now and it’s not pretty.

This is what the Detroit News reports:

Under the measure, the board can choose to change a school’s name to honor “individuals who have made significant contributions to the betterment of education,” according to the district. The board may also choose another name in certain circumstances, such as when a building is newly constructed or remodeled, when the name no longer reflects the current student population, or when “the community in the geographic area where the school is located requests a name change that more closely aligns with the history of the locality, or when newly discovered information about the school’s current name is negative in nature”.

Citing those guidelines, Tuesday’s recommendation included four buildings — the Carson Site, Harms Elementary School, the Frederick Douglass Academy for Young Men and the Detroit School of the Arts — as well as three new programs, including one in Marygrove, the Latin School or the Catherine Ferguson Academy for Young Women.

Board member LaMar Lemmons had lobbied to rename the school Carson, which is named after the secretary of housing and urban development and former Republican presidential candidate who graduated from the district.

Although he graduated from the district and became a world-renowned physician, pioneering new surgical methods, Dr. Carson is not considered to have made a significant contribution to the improvement of the education, or maybe the political polarization is going too far. Nonetheless, Dr. Carson has a long list of accomplishments and has been rewarded for his outstanding career.

Dr. Carson’s Prestigious Awards are the following

  • the Spingarn Medal awarded by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the NAACP’s highest honor.
  • the Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded by President George W. Bush.
  • Recognized by US News Media Group and Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership as one of “America’s Top Leaders”.
  • Recognized by the Gallup organization as one of the 10 most admired men in the world.
  • Recognized as one of the Library of Congress’ 89 “Living Legends”.
  • a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical Society and the Horatio Alger Society of Distinguished Americans.

Still, Lamar Lemmons, a member of the school’s board of trustees, said he was behind the school’s renaming because “it’s synonymous with having Trump’s name on our school in blackface”, he went on to say that Carson “does what Trump asks of him, and he has negatively affected the African-American community in Detroit as well as the nation with his housing policies”, Lemmons continued “And he allied himself with a president who calls himself a white nationalist and blows dog whistles that even the deaf can hear. The board voted 5-2 to change the name, ignoring an administrative request to keep Carson’s name.

Ben Carson and his wife, Candy, have been instrumental in helping future scholars. The duo created Carson’s Scholars Fund, a program that has awarded more than 8.28 million scholarships to high school students with good GPAs who also engage in community service, with 417 of those scholarships awarded to Michigan students. The Carson Scholarship Program aims to cultivate an environment where learners become leaders.
