Ben Carson

HUD Director Ben Carson has come under fire for calling slaves immigrants.

In a speech to employees at the housing and urban development, Carson honored people from all walks of life who arrived from other countries to the "land of dreams and opportunity."

Among those people, he said, were slaves, "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.”

Carson's statements didn't go over well in the leftist media or on Black Twitter.

Among the vitriolic responses to Carson's statement was this article by NY Daily News contributor Leonard Greene. "Try finding their names on some roll on Ellis Island," he said, referring to slaves. As if the names of every immigrant who arrived in America can be found on some roll on Ellis Island.

Immigration is a hot button topic, fueled in part by the fake news media (CNN, MSNBC, NY Daily News, etc) who seek to demonize President Donald Trump and members of his cabinet for simply trying to make America great again.

Obviously Mr. Carson was referring to the definition of immigrants; people who arrived in America from foreign countries.

Surely Africans aren't the only foreigners who arrived in America against their will. The fact that some of our African descendants arrived on slave ships doesn't detract from the fact that we are all immigrants.

FYI: this is not an Open Post. Stay on topic.

    Fdb ben carson. Sounds like he has dementia. *wipes ass with his doctorate again*

  • QTNA brought to you by KIC!

    Slave - a person who is the property of and wholly subject to another; a bond servant.
    2.
    a person entirely under the domination of some influence or person:

    Immigrant - a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.

    Yeah I can see how they are the same ?

    DUMBASSES! Both of y'all.

  • puppylove

    How is this fake news when he said it out of his own mouth?

  • iWasteTime

    How is this Fake News. He said it, on camera, but back peddled on Face Book. So is what comes out of his mouth automatically classified fake?

    Make no mistake, what Ben said was calculated and on script.
    No better way to "Make America Great Again" then to try and erase on of Americas biggest atrocities.

    Immigrant is defined as a person who comes to another country take up permanent residence.
    Not a person who was brought to a country for free labor.

    Was there a reason the video was not included in this post ?

  • Carrington

    Immigrants MIGRATED by CHOICE when they came to America. Africans were beaten, kidnapped, starved, CHAINED and BROUGHT to America. Difference. That's not fake media... attempting to justify ignorance is.

  • puppylove

    Sandra please list the other foreigners who were brought here against their will en masse.

    LOL, Ben Carson is a complete idiot. Somebody must have been doing those brain surgeries for him because he doesn't have the common sense God gave a turtle.

    Slaves are not immigrants. Immigrants come by will, slaves by force. Everyone knows this. Just like everyone knows that slaves weren't even given a little--they were given nothing.

    Ben Carson is so overrated. And honestly, I was over him as soon as I saw that video of his wife singing the National Anthem wearing a Wal-Mart dress and an old time church wig.

  • Justlooknout

    Ben Carson is amazing, he may have been the first mentally retarded person to have become surgeon.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    How is it fake new when Ben called African slaves forced from their home immigrants looking for hard work and opportunity?? I'm confused.. Sandra, did you watch the same vid?? You can't be that clueless!

  • KDub

    Alternative facts: "definition of immigrants; people who arrived in America from foreign countries."

    Real fact: "a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign country"
    Comes to live. Key words. Not dragged and beaten from their homeland.

  • klwbaby

    He said slaves worked harder but with less pay..slaves were paid???!!!

  • hi-liter

    Ben Carson been rich for so long, he forgot about those projects he grew up in. Just because he is so soft spoken, he thinks he can say all kinds of crazy shat. He definitely should have stayed in the operating room. He might be too soft for politics.

    I have faithfully read your blog every day for the last 8 years and today was the first day that I decided I will find another source of entertainment. While I realize that you are an immigrant from the UK, most of us melanin citizens are the descendants of slaves who endured some of the cruelest acts known to mankind. So it isn't funny to defend this foolishness, and it is heartless to make Ben look like a victim. Do better Sandra and bring some dignity back to journalism!!

  • Evillene

    Calling blacks "immigrants" is ill-informed but not necessarily wrong or malicious. Claiming a slave held in bondage in the bowels of a slave ship came to America with dreams that his or her descendants would enjoy prosperity or a better life in America is a cruel insult and diminishes the atrocity of what was done to us. And the cruelty and depravity of the perpetrators. This is something a mean-spirited, holocaust-denying white nationalist would say. Coming from a c00n it is pure Uncle Tom treachery.

  • hi-liter

    You are so kind to equate blogging to journalism. Most people wouldn't do it.

    Sandra I never thought of you as ignorant until this. I just thought you were trolling but now I see. You do know that immigrants had a CHOICE to come here. Slaves were FORCED, raped, beaten, sold, traded, willed as property, etc. Stop trying to downplay our heritage as fake news! I'm sure Harriet Tubman, MLK, Malcolm X, Frederick Douglas, Sojourner Truth, etc would agree they weren't immigrants and didn't have a choice on pay, where they worked, the conditions they worked, on being raped by massa, having their children snatched, etc

    "The outrage machine is on hyper-drive today because President Obama said this at the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday:

    “How do we, as people of faith, reconcile these realities — the profound good, the strength, the tenacity, the compassion and love that can flow from all of our faiths, operating alongside those who seek to hijack religious for their own murderous ends?

    “Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

  • Darkchild

    Y'all don't believe these lying bazturds ok. Most of the black people were already in America!

It's impossible to do so without everyone on that ship getting sick. They want you to think you from somewhere else and some of us fall for it hook line and sinker. The Atlantic Ocean is so fierce that navy ships have a hard time crossing. This is where all the storms come from. Have you ever watched movies that have ships crossing the Atlantic? The perfect storm? No wooden ship can bring 300 people plus the crew across the Atlantic period. Beware of race hustlers like Ben Carson. There is a special place in hell waiting for him and The rest of the coons.

    was he sleepwalking? "we came here"...this is not what I learned in school. Yep, at the bottom of "SLAVE SHIPS" but one of the worst tortures EVER! Forced into captivity to work long hour and for less. Only slaves "worked harder for less" WHY ARE YOU MAKING LIGHT OF THOSE HORRIBLE EVENTS? No other analogies or stories could have been used?

    Sandra, as Ben should have, start by defining immigrant and slave to understand why many including whites are outraged about the comment and referenced to slaved individuals versus others coming here for better opportunities. Ben and you want to diminish or reduce the US's role in the slavery trade but unfortunately it can not be overlooked or undone. We just can't rewrite history to soften anyone's experience or involvement. What is sensible is acknowledging our past and heal from it by validating the harm and hurt it caused so we can become the United States of America.

    Being an immigrant does not imply that you wanted to be somewhere. If you are not a native american then all of our ancestors are immigrants.

    Like what explanations are needed. Why is it bad to think of black slaves as immigrants? It doesn't take away from the facts at all. The white people who brought them here were immigrants too. I'm sure it was all the same to native americans though.... all of us were immigrants (I'm sure another word was used though)

    I totally agree with what you are saying but Ben Carson was not making the same point that you just made, he was making a point that the slaves migrated here for a better life which is NOT TRUE. Why would they migrate here to become a "SLAVE"? I don't see any opportunity in that. The slaves were kidnapped and forced to get on a boat and did not know where they were headed. Please read below again and absorb what the true meaning of this speech was. And don't forget that those Africans that were kidnapped were previous Kings, Queens, Prince and Princesses.

    "In a speech to employees at the housing and urban development, Carson honored people from all walks of life who arrived from other countries to the “land of dreams and opportunity.”
    Among those people, he said, were slaves, “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.”

    In Dump Easter speech he said Americans (white folks) enjoyed 250 years of freedom. How many years of freedom has black folks experienced because when they made those America the Beautiful songs they was not singing them because we were free. We still had to go and pick the cotton. We have never had a year where we have enjoyed being free. By him bringing back stop/ frisk and instituting private prisons which Obama banned gonna take us back to the good ole days of slavery. Even though we are not in jail we are still in a financial prison by institutions purposely giving us high interest rate loans even though we have a good credit score. Imma be looking at Underground this month so I will know how to escape from Master. Dump asking for President Obama birth certificate was like asking President Obama to show him his FREEDOM papers to prove that he belongs here and yet he is still disrespecting him to no end still as if he doesn't have a right to live in the USA.

    Carson didn't want to say slaves because he didn't want to say that slavery was a form of TERRORISM by this country. Dump loves using the word terrorist when it comes to other countries.

    WTF...they came here in CHAINS, sold and stolen from West African countries and had no idea what the transatlantic slave trade was or the land they were forced to go to... AND THEIR FAMILIES WERE IN AFRICA...so why the FUK would they dream about their sons, daughters, etc. pursing prosperity and happiness in this FOREIGN land?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Realhistoryww.com go to bottom and click on Ancient black Americans. Good grief don't you understand that your oppressor taught you wrong on purpose . Stop being lazy and do the research and if you can't do that You just gonna be lost.

  • POW!!!

    This article is a complete disgrace Sandra Rose. How dare you try to normalize the slave experience by comparing them to the immigrants who came over here in search of a better life. A better life is not a choice that blacks were given.I don't know what happened to you in your life to make you hate who you are so much, but instead of disrespecting the race of the majority of readers who keep your blog afloat, why don't you go visit a library or find a Google connection and brush up on some American history. If you don't have a different view of the white man you love so much after that, then you're completely lost, and I feel sorry for you.

  • Realtalk2

    Woke?? You brought a dead author/writer into a conversation about a surgeon/politician. A dead man who has done more for the cultivation of Blacks in America than Uncle Ben ever has! A fraud is Ben Carson pandering to Black America as if we don't know he lacks soul and substance! #westaywoke

  • LibraGirlonly

    Why must we continue to argue with one another?if you don't agree keep it moving but I bet if white man told you the same thing I said you would shut ya mouth and believe it. This must stop!

  • Realtalk2

    Get her a$$!! Yesssssssss

  • kiturner52

    Sandra Rose KILL YOURSELF for this stuuuuupid ass article!!!!! #BangBang

  • Realtalk2

    No disrespect... A white man wouldn't have thrown one of his own under the bus to prove a point. I still don't understand what Alex Haley had to do with a post about Bootlicking Ben Carson. Black History month is over. You see the problem is exactly what YOU demonstrated. We don't need white people to tear us down or lessen our worth, we do that own our on. I don't have to like Ben Carson's politics to respect Dr. Carson's accomplishments. RIP Alex Haley....

  • Kilroy

    I second that!

  • Kilroy

    Surely sr you wrote this asinine post to get a rise out of your readers. Well you got your wish if that was indeed your desire.
    Surely you don't believe this pablum you regurgitated in this post. How sad, how very sad. For anyone to say we were immigrant when we were stolen from our homes and brought to this hateful rock called the USA.
    And for a learned man to say some ish like this?! I'm glad his dumb azz didn't win the presidency.
    tRump has a bunch of narrow minded people in his cabinet and tRump is the main one.

    How do we know what nationality or ethnicity you are? Trolling for dollars or virtual Cointelpro is rampant on most sites that cater to black people.

  • Gigi

    What is sheit? Like sheise? Back in the day? Tell tell signs of white people posing as black people. You are always a day late and dollar short on your colloquialisms.

  • Gigi

    So you are coming from the viewpoint that blacks were native to this continent? I wouldn't doubt it since we've seen the Olmec heads and other evidence but you and I know that Ben Carson is not of that mindset. That supercoon actually believes what most of us have been taught.

  • Realtalk2

    ?????

  • Gigi

    Even if what you say is true--which is not unlike the Australian aborigines or the Tasmanians or the native bantu S. Africans--this still doesn't mean they were not made slaves and they still wouldn't be lumped into the 'immigrant' category.

    Definition of Immigration- the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country.
    Kidnap- take (someone) away illegally by force.
    Slave- a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them.
    In conclusion involuntary immigration is not the same as voluntary immigration. Thank you. In no way did any slave want to be put in the situation that they were in for over 200 years.

  • dontgetblocked

    I can't agree with Carson. I can NOT! Five hundred years of slavery and another hundred of Jim Crow. And current day abject poverty. Black people are the victims of human trafficking and are not and will not ever be called immigrants. We are victims of the Black Holocaust. We were hunted, kidnapped, raped, tortured, and killed during the trip here. Then we were slaves...slaves. There is no comparison and Carson should be ashamed of himself. Most of us still carry the names of our masters or names we made up once freed. We never had the chance to bring our African names over and Americanize it once we wanted to blend in. Our black skin kept us from blending in. No other race. Repeat. No other race was held captive on this land. The Indians escaped and outwitted the white man. We didn't know the land..so we were slaves. Carson and I refuse to call him Dr. because he is a buffoon. Carson can kiss by black naked azz.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is completely untrue. Read his book. There was a lot of research. Of course, some parts were embellished because it happened hundreds of years ago. The book and the movie did a lot to motivate and unite the black race as well as educate white people. No need to attack him.

    It's funny because President Obama said the same thing in Dec 2015 and not a peep. Always selective outrage by liberals.

  • Simone

    Actually, President Trump offered Dr. Ben Carson the HHS Secretary position but he turned it down because while he is a brilliant surgeon, Carson felt he lacked the knowledge for the bureaucracy part of the job.

  • NAYB

    Obama also acknowledged they did not come voluntarily. He didn't throw in bs about them working "for less" when in actuality they worked for NOTHING, nor did he make it seem like slave's came here looking for the American dream. Or "prosperity and happiness" as Carson says. It's not just that one word,its the way he damn near likened slaves in captivity to a Mexican crossing the border at their free will.

  • http://batman-news.com Show-Me

    I'm certain Carson meant well and I will not condemn him for his lack of understanding. I hope he learns from this and watches every word he says in the future. People put every word under microscope, analyze everything, and may take offense to certain subjects, slavery is one of them.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    "Being an immigrant does not imply that you wanted to be somewhere."
    =====
    Actually, yes it does. The very word immigrant implies that the person voluntarily immigrated.
    Slaves did not immigrate here. They were captured and imported here as property. Classifying imports as immigrants is just ignorant and stupid.

    I really believe the term "immigrant" should not be used in the same sentence when referring to African slaves. Its null and void! We did not migrate here, we were forced to come to this land. Considering we built this country and everything in it.. we should be considered natives just like the Indians under the circumstances. This country really belongs to us!

  • Jussjess25

    Thank you!! He is a fkn idiot. Brain surgeon or not

    Thank you. WB Dubois would be rolling over in his grave . .?

    Exactly

  • Jussjess25

    Yesss

  • Kjibbers

    Obviously "slave on ships" means involuntary. Only an idiot would take it to mean something different.
    People like you need everything defined.

    Thank you, some people need xtra explanation.....

  • Luvn_it

    Ok the dictionary definition of an Immigrant is a person who comes to another country to take up permanent residence. A slaves weren't considered people they were considered property. Working longer harder for less no they worked for free big d@mn difference. Now Sandra you find me another group of people that were brought to this country chained to the bottom of slave ships, held in bondage for 400yrs and took a war that divided the country and the signing of a piece of paper to set them(though we're aren't really truly free) than we can talk. So Sandra you and him need to have a stadium of ??? b/c y'all sound ignorant comparing immigrants with slaves no they aren't the same.

  • NAYB

    Actually he said "immigrants who came on the bottom of slaves ships", and no, " immigrant" rarely ever implies involuntary ... Anyway , i said what i said , He likened servitude to voluntary migration . Good day.

  • Joi Calloway

    You hit the nail on the head with this one. All Sandra does is spew ignorance in return for some advertisement $$.
