Ben Carson’s, ill-fated reference this week, of enslaved Africans as being immigrants received major shade on social media. (Click here to view our blog post on the incident) 

Amid the social media black lash, a quote from @justlikecandi_1 received thousands of likes and retweets.  It is the prefect combination of humor truth, and sarcasm.  

Oh No He Didn’t: Ben Carson Calls Enslaved Africans “Immigrants”

Black History:  Special Delivery!!

 

Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Trump Administration described enslaved Africans who came to the U.S. in slave ships as “immigrants” who had a dream….. He made these comments during a speech to HUD employees.  No disrespect to those  who willingly came here as immigrants, but enslaved Africans came here in chains and were forced to work for free.  There is no logical way that Dr. Carson could or should refer to them as “immigrants”.  Check out the video clip and see it for yourself!.  Video clip is from USA Today.
