Conservative Pundit Blames Feminism for Ferguson

December 18, 2014

Salon reports that conservative pundit Ben Carson suggests that feminism is partially responsible for Ferguson.  The logic goes something like this:

A lot of children in inner cities (mostly black inner cities) are born out of wedlock.
(This is the part that is presumably because of feminism.)
These children grow up with no father figure in their lives.
Thus the children never learn to respect authority.
Thus they end up being shot by the police, causing racial uprest.

If your head is not spinning around in circles yet, you can read the article.
