Shernita Jefferson Ben Carson

Loyal reader Christy wrote in to correct my post about Dr. Ben Carson's HUD seminar to announce the opening of Envision Centers in D.C. and around the country.

While the Democrats are protesting at the Mexican border, the Trump administration is opening Envision Centers around the country to help Americans become self-sufficient and escape poverty.

Christy writes:

Good morning,

I just saw your article regarding the EnVision Center in Washington, D.C. It is incorrect. The EnVision Center just opened. Shernita Jefferson's success is due to her perseverance and programs at the D.C. Housing Authority. Ms. Jefferson states this in the video that is attached to the article. She says that there were no EnVision Centers around when she was making her way through the system, but she thinks they will be helpful to others. Also, the EnVision Centers are being [placed] in communities throughout the United States and are not just for black Americans, but all Americans.

Please correct the article.

Thank you,

    Oh please really Sandra Throwing shade at democrats AND making it appears republicans are trying to do something for the black community for ONCE during in 50 YEARS is crazy and a low blow. Also all democrats are not at the boarder they are also else where fighting many causes thst you wont recognize.

    . Also, the EnVision Centers are being [placed] in communities throughout the United States and are not just for black Americans, but all Americans.

    But people come here want to make it seem like Orange Julius is doing so much for black people when he ain’t doing Shat. Always got to attach a black face to these kind of programs. Not all black women NEED help and this kind of guidance purchasing a home. But to the ones that do, use it.

    LOL, People can do alllll the "ENVISION" they want.....BUT IF NO "ACTION" is being done...the "vison" will not succeed. At the end of the day, if you want better...DO BETTER. If you want a different something different. If a person cannot motivate themselves for, nobody else will not get through to them. I do not care how many centers they put up or classes they starts with self. I wish I could go to the centers and "EVISION" them not taking these taxes out my check when they government do not assist me with bad yes they do....a headache. Assist me with that just about everyday

    There’s already so many programs to help get out of poverty that people don’t take.. I think it’s awesome they’re offering this though cause it’ll hold people accountable if they don’t go. I don’t want to hear nobody complaining about nothing that they can help themselves with

    CORRECTION: That are a lot of programs that people BLACK people do not know about and/or not made aware of. See the people needing the real help, don't have Ipads, Iphones and the such nor the mental capacity to know how to navigate the system. I've worked for non-profits for over 20 years, I know.

  • J2PC

    Other ethnic groups have examples or family & friends to have such discussions about making a better life for themselves unlike a large segment of the Black population.

    So, why not attach the face of those needing the most help to those kind of programs since of all the different ethnic groups, a large number Black folks are the least likely to ever become homeowners or break the cycle of poverty?

    Senility is kicking in for every last one of these people running the country.

  • J2PC

    What cause would that be? Is it lowering taxes across the board to free up more income revenue so that companies will not only come back to America, but will hire more people to them better their lives?

    Is it voiding some of those pet project that really serves no one but helps themselves in order to work on lowering taxes on vehicles; homes, land, gas, food, clothing, furniture, etc. to get back to when things were more affordable with a better lifestyle for middle to lower income American? -nope can't do that!

  • J2PC

    He inherited that trait from one or both of his parents. -whatever the case, the man who was raised in poverty was smart enough to go onto become a self-made multimillionaire.

    I'd take a squinting eyes with a goofy grin man who is very intelligent, family-oriented & an IVY league world-renown educated retired neurosurgeon anyday over some teeth sucking tyrone or a bunch of tatted of losers calling themselves a man.

  • J2PC

    Sandra that message is only for the struggling Blacks who dare to do things differently across the board to change their lives for the better.

    -others are foolishly waiting for the gov't to miraculously change their lives for the better & to tell them what to do next. Well, that will never happen!

    Gotta wise up, be willing to learn from good info or others & teach/guide your loved ones on how to break the cycle with a plan for a better life.

  • J2PC

    The point is there will be those who this will help. They will go onto do better for themselves with learning good info. You cannot pity those who heard the same info, but chose to stay the course of changing nothing about themselves.

    Not everybody was meant to make it or want better for themselves.

    -it takes an individual who possess the mind & will with good direction who put forth action to change their life for the better.

    Government miraculously changed Sean Hannity life quite handsomely and you ain't said a word. Those are the courses black folks need to be taking. White folks don't have no problem going to the government to make their money and get help but when black folks do it all of a sudden it is a problem and all of a sudden it is a handout. Let's discuss all of those welfare checks excuse me grants/subsidies that Harvard, Stanford and other PWI school gets.

    The gov't? LOL The man attended 3 different colleges, wrote a number of books, worked different jobs in corporate America including radio & producing a movie, etc. to earn a living and came from hardworking parents.

    He's married man of 25yrs with 2 kids. -so exactly how has the gov't rewarded him quite handsomely? lol

    HUD is not the reason he is wealthy man. According to H-Post, Hannity, whose "salary from Fox News is estimated by Forbes to be $36 million annually," acknowledged in his statement that he received loans from HUD to invest in properties during President Barack Obama’s administration.

    -he makes $36mil per year via Fox News. HUD was his mortgage company of choice over private mortgage loans from a bank because HUD has guaranteed protection in the event somebody defaults on their loan. However, he had to use his millions to pay back those HUD mortgages.

    -all of that was okayed & done during last administration. Why didn't they have a problem with until now?
