Carson Responds To Touré: '3rd Grader' With Nothing 'Useful To Say' Carson responded to attacks by MSNBC Host Touré today with a calm, even toned response claiming that it's time for people to move one from prejudice and group think based on ethnicity. Dr. Carson said:"If you don't have anything useful to say then you attack people. If you feel that your house of cards has been discovered and is starting to come unraveled you become very desperate. You know, intelligent people tend to talk about the facts, they don't sit around and call each other names. That's what you can find on a third grade playground. This is something that we need to move beyond in this country. Let's have a real discussion about the real facts. If somebody disagrees, let's talk about why they disagree, let's talk about the pros and cons, let's see if we can find some accommodation. But to sit around and act like third graders is not productive."
