– “Key moments from Senate hearing on Ben Carson,” Politico.com, Jan 12, 2017, Lorraine Woellert and Kyle Cheney, 1/12/2017
CABINET/BEN CARSON/HUD: "Brown took Carson to task for a 2015 Washington Times opinion piece that criticized an Obama administration rule, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. The rule requires cities and towns to look for and reverse patterns of racial bias in housing.
Carson said his view on the rule 'has been distorted by many people.'
'That act says that we want people who are receiving HUD grants to look around and see if they find anything that looks like discrimination and then we want them to come up with a solution,' Carson said. 'They’re saying go and look for a problem and give us a solution.' "
