These days, you can find Dr. Ben Carson sharing his conservative ideals about government subsidies but there was once a time when even he needed some help.

“By the time I reached ninth grade, mother had made such strides that she received nothing but food stamps," Carson wrote in his book. "She couldn’t have provided for us and kept up the house without that subsidy.”

Those subsidies didn't kill his spirit. Dr. Carson went from welfare to one of the most famous surgeons in history, encouraging generations for Black intellectuals.

So where exactly does Carson think that Tubman belongs?
