Did Ben Carson just compare slaves to immigrants looking for opportunity? Sweet Jesus, someone get this man a history book!
“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships and worked even harder and longer for no less.”
Ben Carson doesn’t get a free pass to spout ridiculous, hurtful ‘alternative facts’ about the history of the African slave trade simply because he is part of the most inept Administration on record.
Lay off the Carson clearly drank the Brietbard Koolaid Ben! We were left absolutely speechless after watching Carson’s remarks speaking in his capacity as HUD Secretary.
Watch the video clip below, comment, and share widely with your friends!
