Removing American Legacies: Ben Carson’s Name Removed from Detroit High School
December 13, 2022
Schools across the nations have stripped off the Founding Fathers’ names from their school buildings to be woke and inclusive. However, Detroit’s School Board just voted to remove the name of, ironically, a prominent Black American, even with a student poll in favor of keeping the name. Not only was Dr. Carson the Secretary of HUD, but he is one of this nation’s leading neurosurgeons and from Detroit. So, it could not have been more fitting that the Detroit High School of Science and Medicine was named after him. His only flaw: being a conservative.
A school board member who opposed the original name change claimed in 2018 the move was "synonymous with having Trump's name on our school in blackface," the host added.
