Say What Now? Ben Carson Says Slaves Were Simply Immigrants Who Came Here And Worked Really Hard ‘For Less’ [Video]

Our new Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson referred to slaves as “immigrants” while speaking to department employees on Monday.

“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity,” he said. “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”


Needless to say, this did NOT go over well with…anyone who has basic education.

Samuel L. Jackson summed it up best.
