Holy Shit. I Had To Play The Video To Make Sure the Headline Was Right
Ben Carson just said that slaves were immigrants who came to America, too.

Quote:Housing and Urban Housing Secretary Ben Carson on Monday said that African-Americans slaves were “immigrants” who came to the U.S. with dreams of building a better future for their children.

Yes.  He said it.  WTF is wrong with this asshole?

He didn't say that they voluntarily came here.

He said they had dreams of a better future for their children and grandchildren, man.  How fucked up is that?

BTW, the very notion of slavery would dispute the concept of "immigration."

:  one that immigrates: such asa :  a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence

That's sort of like a rapist calling his victim a sex partner.

I would hope they had dreams of a better future for their kids. Being a slave sucks.

I get your point. Carson is a dumbass.

Carson is a house negro.

I knew he was a pretty stupid guy for a neurosurgeon, but now it looks like he's some kind of idiot savant. He does one thing well, which is neurosurgery, but otherwise he's a complete moron. When someone kidnaps you, and drags you to another country, that's not immigration.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

I suppose it's technically accurate, since they did come to the U.S., and many presumably did dream that someday, their descendants wouldn't have to resort to working as unpaid field hands working on pain of whatever torture Massa was willing to inflict on you. Not sure what one has to do with the other in this particular case, but I suppose it might look kind of accurate if you kind of squint hard enough.

Carson is probably glad that his ancestors were slaves so he can have such a lavish life now.

'So, n'Tonga, you want a better life for your children?'

'Oh, yes, please!'

'Grand! Now hold still while I fix these manacles...'

'Wait, what?'

You understand the difference between '...come to the U.S.' and 'brought to the U.S. chained in the stinking hold of a slave ship', right?

How do you know his ancestors were slaves?

I haven't heard that term in 30 years.  Brings back memories.
