If you thought that you could escape the belated sequel to the Civil War by reading this media resource, we’re sorry to disappoint you. However, there is a housing element to be found in this current news stream.
In a posting on Facebook, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Dr. Ben Carson weighed in by noting his residence was desecrated by people who didn’t vote Republican in the last presidential election.
“Our home in Virginia along with that of a neighbor was vandalized by people who also wrote hateful rhetoric about President Trump,” wrote Dr. Carson on the Facebook page
he shares with his wife Candy. “We were out of town, but other kind, embarrassed neighbors cleaned up most of the mess before we returned.”
Dr. Carson also noted a previous example where the Civil War was reintroduced on his property. “Several years ago we bought a farm in rural Maryland,” he stated. “One of the neighbors immediately put up a Confederate flag. A friend of ours who is an African-American three-star general was coming to visit and immediately turned around concluding that he was in the wrong place. Interestingly, all the other neighbors immediately put up American flags shaming the other neighbor who took down the Confederate flag.”
Dr. Carson added that the neighbor with the Confederate flag “subsequently became friendly,” adding that it was his hope that serenity could return to the national environment if “we just learn to be neighborly and to get to know each other.”
