Ben Carson calls poverty a state of mind during interview.

In an interview released Wednesday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said that a "certain mindset" contributes to people living in poverty, pointing to habits and a "state of mind" that children take from their parents at a young age.

"I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind. You take somebody that has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they'll be right back up there," he said during an interview on SiriusXM Radio with Armstrong Williams, a longtime friend.

"And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they'll work their way right back down to the bottom," Carson said.

3. Yeah, right, if folks had any gumption

they'd just sell a little stock and be on Easy Street instead of that nasty Section 8 housing with the broken elevators.

9. Well, only rich people have an entitled mindset

A mindset that helps them rob, steal and deprive others so they can get and keep what they believe belongs only to them

And in the process of that, the working classes continuously get kicked back down to the bottom

This Carson needs to seriously go fuck himself

10. It's true Trump had all the money in the world and work himself to the bottom

luckily for him they rewrote the rules so no matter how far in debt a rich person is they seem to only be richer in the eyes of lenders. It's amazing!!
