The liberal mainstream media has gone wild ever since Ben Carson said that slaves were immigrants. They have even been implying that Ben Carson is ‘racist’. Here is the line that has them all worked up:
“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,” said Ben Carson.
Whoopi Goldberg on ‘The View’ slammed him for saying this. “Maybe we need to get him [Carson] a history book. I mean were the slaves really thinking about the American dream? No, because they were trying to understand, ‘what the hell just happened?’” Goldberg said.
“How does he miss that no slave came to this country willingly? I’m sorry, Ben, ‘Roots’ watch ‘Roots,’” said Whoopi. Ben Carson responded to all the haters in a very tactful respectable way. “I’m proud of the courage and perseverance of Black Americans and their incomprehensible struggle from slavery to freedom. I’m proud that our ancestors overcame the evil and repression that we know as slavery,” wrote Carson in a post on facebook.
“The Immigrants made the choice to come to America. They saw this country as a land of opportunity. In contrast, slaves were forced here against their will and lost all their opportunities. We continue to live with that legacy,” he wrote. Everyone knows this. Liberals are just choosing to pounce on Trump and his associates every chance they get. Check out the whole post here.
