Washington (CNN) – Ben Carson said Wednesday that Republicans are more colorblind than Democrats when it comes to race.

“I find black Republicans are treated extremely well in the Republican Party. In fact, I don’t hear much about being a black Republican,” he said Wednesday at an event in Michigan. “I think the Republicans have done a far superior job of getting over racism.”

Carson was a Democrat for years, but said he’s found the Republican Party to be more welcoming.

“When you look at the philosophies of the two parties now, what I have noticed as a black Republican is that Republicans tend to look more at the character of people. And Democrats tend to look more at the color of their skin,” he said Wednesday.
