Slaves were immigrants pursuing the American dream? Really? That’s what Ben Carson says

Defeated Republican presidential candidate, retired neurosurgeon, and all-around idiot Ben Carson speaks during a campaign stop.

“Ben Carson made his debut as secretary of Housing and Urban Development Monday by telling agency employees about the virtues of the ‘can-do’ American society. Carson said this value system was best exemplified by slaves, whom he characterized as immigrants who came to the United States with very little and worked very hard. ‘That’s what America is about,’ Carson said. ‘A land of dreams and opportunity. 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.'”

That’s not what slaveowners had in mind, and I doubt the slaves saw it that way, either.  It took a bloody civil war to free the slaves, and several more generations of white terrorism against black people would pass before blacks gained civil rights and equality under the law. Ben Carson is an idiot, a traitor to his race, and thanks to Trump voters now runs the federal department of Housing and Urban Development.
