    Are you saying that Bill Clinton never released his transcripts?

    Yes, he's saying that Ben Carson was not the first presidential candidate to have his college records looked into by the media. Whoever made up that meme apparently doesn't remember the brouhaha over John Kerry's lousy grades, George W. Bush's grades, the fact that Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar and smoked pot didn't inhale in college, etc. etc.

    Yes, because if you are aware of the last few Presidential cycles this meme doesn't even make sense.

    I think some people didn't read the meme and missed the joke about Clinton being the first "black" president.

    Regardless, I'd say that Jessie Jackson or Alan Keys or Al Sharpton or Jerman Cain had their education looked at.

    Now if Carson gets elected, they can change presidential candidate to president and it would be pretty accurate.

    You should read the meme again. You missed an important detail.

    I see. You are correct. I guess I really should be more attuned to race and quit being so handicapped by being color blind to it.

    No one in either party seriously questions Dr. Carson's intelligence. The reason for covering for Obama at Occident probably relate to his enrolling as a foreign student. He probably got into the ivy league on the basis of his race. His grades might be like Kerry's--worst than W's.

    Academic proficiency in medical studies does not mean that Dr. Carson will do well in debate against a Yale educated attorney with fifty years experience in politics.

    And then there is the picture said to be in Dr. Carson's house that shows him with a black Jesus:

    The media went after Obama heavily about his transcripts back in 2012. Even recent history pokes holes in the meme. More race baiting Rev?

    Then what was his gpa? I can google "bush gpa" and it's right there, all 2.35 points of it. Not so with our current president.

    If the media went after "it," then where is "it."

    They went after "it" but didn't get "it." It was investigated, albeit unsuccessfully.
