Ben Carson told the Wall Street Journal that on the day Martin Luther King, Jr was killed he protected two white students from attacks from angry black students.

It is a dramatic account of courage and kindness, and it couldn’t be confirmed in interviews with a half-dozen of Mr. Carson’s classmates and his high school physics teacher. The students all remembered the riot. None recalled hearing about white students hiding in the biology lab, and Mr. Carson couldn’t remember any names of those he sheltered.


“It may have happened, but I didn’t see it myself or hear about it,” said Gregory Vartanian, a white classmate of Mr. Carson’s who served in the ROTC with Mr. Carson and is now a retired U.S. Marshal.

Another humble brag reported by the journal is how we was declared “the most honest student” in a Yale class.

…he claimed the Yale Daily News took his photo for being the only one of 150 students in a psychology class who did not walk out on a test and was declared “the most honest student in the class” by the professor.
