Ben Carson

HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson was dragged unmercifully by Hillary Clinton's supporters for equating slaves to immigrants in a speech last week.

Clinton's supporters are united in their fake outrage at President Trump and his administration. But video has surfaced online showing their savior, ex-President Barack Obama, saying the same thing Carson said.

In the video, dated December 2015, then-President Obama described life in America for new immigrants "of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily, and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves."

Since the video surfaced yesterday, no one has said a disparaging word about Teflon Obama.

It looks like Dr. Carson was right after all; regardless of how your ancestors arrived in America, we are all immigrants.

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

  • tintin

    Damn Sandra what did Obama do to you?

  • iWasteTime

    You don't see the difference though?
    President Obama specifically and in detail defined what a slave is and in making the comparison made sure to state that by coming from another country to this one they are both by definition immigrants.
    What he did not do was portray slavery and the slave ship and a luxury sailing excursion that transferred people to America for a better life.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Delivery. It's all in the delivery. Ben acting like our ancestors begged to catch a ride over here IN SEARCH of a better life. Like they had family standing on the shores waving them goodbye in hopes that they would come back and get them to bring them to this promised land.

    Fukk outta here Uncle Ben. Open up them sleepy ass eyes.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    We are so ------------> HERE!

  • Carolina Blue

    So basically he tried to remix what Obama said and failed...ok got it!

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Be black and run a country.

  • Carolina Blue

    And why do we have to stay on topic lol

  • Depths Of My Soul!

    Got em!

  • Lovezoe

    Yeah, so what y'all watch last night on Tv?

  • Carolina Blue

    Umm ma'am we've been told to stay on topic. Read the fine print.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    That's the only way the TRUE nutbags that subscribe to this shyt will stick around.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's your interpretation. He said the same thing Obama said.

  • Carolina Blue

    Damn, you're absolutely right. Smhdh...

  • Lovezoe

    Oh.i don't read that Malarkey

  • Lovezoe

    Ben Carson still a coon.

  • Carolina Blue

    ?? malarkey indeed.

  • iWasteTime

    Ben's comments were targeted and on script. What better way to make america great again than to try and white wash one of America's biggest human atrocities. It was strategic, down to using a black man to say it. What did slavery even have to do with him being confirmed as HUD Secretary?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm not surprised that you're deliberately missing the point, which is they both called slaves "immigrants".

  • Lovezoe

    If we use that analogy how you define child slaves, women who are trafficked. Miss me with that

  • Carolina Blue

    Girl gwon and tell the truth!?

  • Zizzle

    It's not the same when it's qualified. Keep trying.

  • Phillybruh

    But in a very different way. I get what your saying though.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    True, but I also interpreted it to say that Ben is a clueless Uncle Tom that's shucking and bucking for massa. To only have Twitler throw his ass to the wolves when he no longer fits his overall narrative.

    But again, just MY interpretation and .......

  • Lovezoe

    D-E-L-I-V-E-R-Y

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You can't even be honest and admit they both said the same thing. Obama gets a pass because he is the gay's president. ?

  • iWasteTime

    I said as much in my comment and broke down the KEY difference. They used the same word but in totally different context.

  • Zizzle

    The blog owner is being paid not to see the difference.

  • Elevated Soul

    Good article!

    Those of us Blacks with "knowledge" already knew this occurred and we talked about then,while the same Black hypocrites that dog Dr. Carson gave a pass to Obama as USUAL....They target Blacks that happen to be Republican or even Independents like myself,like the KKK targeted Black people as a whole,they are no better.They try to kill the SPIRIT of Blacks,who have left the democratic plantation.

    Black Democrats are nothing but ignorant sellouts and they hurt our race. They put one HALF WHITE man and the DEMOCRATIC party over the entire Black race.

  • Carolina Blue

    Iwastetime pretty much put it to perspective.

  • Phillybruh
  • Zizzle

    You say some of the dumbest shit.

  • iWasteTime

    If he said the same thing in the same context there would have been no need for the retraction in which he coherently defines slavery and the vast difference between what happened with his and my ancestors and a person or family having and making the CHOICE to immigrate to any country of their choosing.

  • Zizzle

    Republicans don't understand context or nuance... it's too much for their brains to process.

  • Phillybruh

    Became President, the same thing that got under Trumps skin.

  • iWasteTime

    I love that word!
    I watched Old Rosanne and when I went to tweet about the episode I learned Rosanne ass changed. She a card carrying conservative Republican who supports Trump instead of making fun of him.

  • Carolina Blue
  • Cheese eggs

    I remember when this site used to be fun??????

  • TamG

    The Left constantly hijacks Black history to promote their own agendas: illegals, gays, and Jews readily cite the oppression of Blacks to pad their own stories. It's insulting when they do it and it's insulting when Carson or anyone else does it, but the hypocrisy of their faux outrage at Carson on this is so laughably rich. I wish they'd all just stop.

  • Carolina Blue

    I love that word too.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • Me 215

    Sandra Rosa is a self hating black woman ? So sad

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Not surprised, are you? Obama spent two terms in office ignoring Black America and its many problems, choosing instead to focus on the non-issues belonging to transgenders and illegal immigrants.

    I'm surprised he didn't call the slaves "vacationers".

    And the Democrats have shown you all in every way imaginable that they don't give a damn about Black people. They just want your votes. I mean, when's the last time a Democrat in office has done anything at all to impact crime and criminal justice issues--two of the most important dilemmas crippling Black people?

    And Obama did everything he could to ensure a Latino became DNC chair--over a Black candidate many considered more qualified.

  • KDub

  • gail fowler

    No they did not say the same thing Barack said it was not easy for those of African Heritage who did not come here voluntarily but yet in their own way they were immigrants themselves. All about the presentation

  • Lovezoe

    How is that show? I feel it's so many shows. The shows I usually watch I can barely watch during thr week.

  • Zizzle

    Because there's too much happening to Donnie and the Republicans right now, and she thinks most here will remain ignorant if it's not posted.

    So, are you implying that one has to herald Obama as some sort of deity--like most Black people and left wing extremists do--in order to have Black Pride? LOL. Obama failed Black America--miserably.

    And it almost seems intentional.

    lmao... but they will let Obama pass with it because it sounds better to people lol.

    Same thing is being said... slaves were immigrants... all the extra stuff doesn't take away from the fact that they both made that same exact point.

    And Ben didn't say that they came here willingly for thier dreams, but rather that in being here as immigrants they had hope that generations to come would be in a better place.... I'm sure they did

    I take it we never getting a post on his twitter stupidity this weekend. He stay with Obama on his mind ????.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Again, President Obama was the President of the entire United States, not just for blacks. Ben Carson is still a coon. Anytime someone can tell you "You'd make a superb Secetary of HUD, because you were raised in urban housing" and you agree with that shyt, that confirms just how idiotic Ben Carson is". In addition his own camp came out and stated publicly that he wasn't interested becoming a member's of Trump's administration because he lacked the experience/knowledge within any branch of Government. Yet, he accepted the position anyway.

  • MissHarlem

    Hmmmm idk I like him. However what happened

  • RespectSelf

    But Ben didn't suggest otherwise. He just didn't go into detail about how they came over ( I mean we all know) The headline was that people were upset that Ben called slaves immigrants.... Obama did too. But oh no it's the way he called them immigrants that makes it better. Ben didn't say how Obama did... so he's wrong lol.

  • jazzysmith12

  • RespectSelf

    It doesn't do anything for us.... There is this strong agenda to forever remind black people that they are only slaves. So much so that black people will be upset if you suggest anything outside of the fact that were slaves, force here upon their will, raped, and beaten.

    They love seeing shows like Roots, the Underground something lol, and moves like 12 years of slavery.... as a continued reminder that they were just slaves. So when some dude refers to blacks as immigrants as opposed to slaves.... it's like how dare you... "we were slaves, not immigrants"... It's actually kind of sad how black people as a whole cling on to identifying themselves as slaves when their history goes way beyond that.

  • jussaying

    The difference between Ben Carson and Obama is that one acknowledged that those of African heritage did not choose, voluntarily to come here. That one highlighted (briefly) the struggle they had to go through. The words "IN A WAY" suggest a comparison but does not state that THEY ARE. One is a similie, the other is a complete metaphor and an incorrect one.

    Ben Carson's rhetoric is dangerous in a time where we have a racist president, when history books are minimizing slavery and attempting to obliterate entirely, as we STILL are continuously dealing with the fall out of racism in our laws.

  • first page

    that is sooo pretty!!!

  • jazzysmith12

    That's because a immigrant owns it who wants to be Trump's slave.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    ??You better bring it in

  • jussaying

    But if you don't see or understand why people have an issue with Ben Carson versus what Obama said then you don't understand the context of each of their narratives. let alone the TIMING, which is the bigger issue with Carson.

    Carson: Obamacare is the worst thing since slavery
    It's all about context.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Dear, ALL presidents are elected to be President of EVERYBODY int he country--but how often has that been the case?

    Likewise, Obama was elected to represent ALL the people of the United States BUT, by him being the first Black President in the history of a nation that enslaved, subjugated, segregated, violated and murdered Black people...he had an obligation to do more for Black America and that's the hope most Black folks had when they voted for him. Let's be honest.

    That said, his terms were a flop.

    As far as Carson, who do you know that would turn down an offer from the President to work as a Secretary in the White House Cabinet?? That is a once in a lifetime opportunity for anybody.

  • jussaying

    Schools need to do a lot. Our education system sucks.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Extreme Black Liberals make a BIG deal about a few words out of context. I'm more concerned about the fact that Barrack the Black Activist for 20 YEARS became President on the backs of black folks and turned into Barry the Biracial from Honolulu with a white liberal agenda for blacks (comfortable ie roof over their head/food and POE) He did absolutely nothing to help the 70 to 80% of BLACK KIDS trapped in the WORST schools in their city and state! What a disgrace. Smmfh

    Half of the peeople complaining about Ben Carson being HUD Secretary couldn't name Barry's Hud Secretary and none of you all can name anything significant they accomplished.

    Obama was the transgender and illegal immigrant president. He can't even take credit for gay marriage though because that wheel was already turning long before he found enough balls to take a stand.

    And he criticized George Bush for Katrina but Obama had his own Katrina--the city of Chicago. He didn't even care about the people in his own hometown--the people who helped launch his stuttering ass to the presidency.

    Obama was a phony, a fake, a sellout, and a weak and totally inept leader who hid his many flaws behind the pretense of clever dialogue, fancy speeches and grandiose promises he had no intentions of keeping. And all that would have been OK because most politicians are all that and more except for the fact that he screwed Black folks over in the midst of it all.

    “of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily(ENSLAVED), and yet in their own way were immigrants (A PERSON WHO COMES TO LIVE PERMANENTLY IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY) themselves.”
    ***********
    We had no choice but to live here permanently because we COULDN'T leave. Our exit was DEATH. This wasn't an extended vacation. Furthermore, we were a VOTE to be seen as "FULL" and "a people". So understand context and comprehension and just say you fukced up and keep on pushing. You NEVER have to change RIGHT answer.

    By the way, we all know his "standing". His standing opened the door for a Trump presidency.

    His standing saw Democrats lose governor's races, legislative races, mayoral races, congressional races in every state in the country--including bright blue Massachusetts.

    He's charismatic and smart but he was a lousy president. Had he done a good job, Hillary would be in the White House right now because she did everything she could to deify him during the campaign.

    Don't you think that when Barak banned private prisons that helped black people. Don't you think when Barak made it easier to get Pell grants that helped black people. Don't you think when he made the changes to child support if you are not working it gets modified that helps black people. Don't you think when he put in place Obamacare that helped black people. Barak s not responsible for Chicago until his death because he lived there. A report came out weeks ago about corrupt the police are in Chicago. What about the politicians and other elected officials what are they doing. He talked about Katrina because Bush looked at those black folks suffer for days and did nothing. We all COMPLAINED about that But New Orleans citizens got the shaft from their Mayor Nagen who got the money intended to help the citizens he put it in his pockets. It is amazing how folks praising Dump for helping black folks when he purposely kept black folks out of his buildings, wanted the Central 5 young men to die for a crime they didn't commit even though they were founded not guilty. He told that repeated lie that he had people in Hawaii and paid 5 millions dollars to see was President Obama born there looking for his certificate as if that is President Obama freedom papers. He is bringing back stop/frisk to put black folks in his friends private jails. He pimped those HBCU Presidents for a photo-op in the words of DL Hughley for a brochure. He is screwing over black people in their face because he know some of yall are looking for a white savior because you are too dumb/weak to take care of yourselves. SO this President Obama ain't done nothing for black folks argument is played out. About that gay marriage thang. Some gays hate it now because Rosie O; Donnell is now paying alimony to 2 ex-wives. Ask her how she feels about it and you will get an entirely different answer. Gay people are like straight people. Get the ring, get divorced and get the money. Sexuality doesn't discriminate when it comes to game.

    I certainly appreciate Obama's historic contribution and success as a Black Man in America. But I don't agree with most of his decisions in office, especially as it pertains to Black America, and some of you have to accept that not all Black people regard Obama as the Second Coming of Christ.

    He had a chance to do so many things for Black America and he chose not to. The night this man won in 2008, I was in a room full of Black people who were screaming, crying and hugging and rejoicing because his victory, we thought, was OUR victory. But the truth quickly set in.

    Obama let us down by ignoring our economic plight, criminal justice inequities, voting rights for ex-felons, and so many other challenges that our group faces. Face the truth people.

    He really was not much better than Clarence Thomas.

    It is up to your elected officials in your state to bring jobs to your region for the economic plight. I hear people talking about they haven't had a raise in years. That is your job keeping your raise from you and if you wanna make more money get another job or go to school. It is not the President's fault. When my job came to me with that crap that I have reached my earning capabilities and stopped giving me a raise and giving themselves a 18% raise it was time to bounce. Your elected officials run the state and are responsible as to how it is run.

    He said "in their own way". Which suggest that even though they, unlike many others, were brought here unwillingly... they too were immigrants. Yes he specifically stated they were taken against their will, but didn't Ben too.

    I mean when he said they traveled at the bottom of slave ships...That suggested they didn't come here willingly. He went on to say they worked hard for very little... We know what that means...

    Had he sad all of what he said, but referred to them as slaves instead of "immigrants"... there would be no problem. But he called them immigrants so folks were mad.

    There is this perception of immigrants only being people who willingly travel some where and stay.... There are refugees who were forced to leave their homes to be in another country... they are immigrants. They are children and other different folks who have been force to be drug mules, sex slaves.... if they are in another country and have stayed for whatever reason... they are immigrants.

    I just can't get with the idea that because he didn't go deep into slaves struggles that what he said was wrong as opposed to what Obama said.

  • iWasteTime

    Which of President Obama's HUD Secretaries are you referring? I know the name of each of them.
    It was more than the color of their skin. If you voted for a president thinking that they would specifically make a significant change for a targeted group of people, you don't know the process and did voting wrong. Especially since the Black candidate didn't run on a platform of race but of Hope for a better tomorrow. Not all that voted for President Obama did so believing that he could make change for people of color but voted for him because he was the embodiment of what this country was founded on. He was the dream fulfilled of that stolen African, who endured harsh conditions, procreated and dreamed of a country that gave their descendants a chance to be ANYTHING they want .
    Making Ben Carson's ignorant, dangerous and calculated rhetoric about President Obama is a diversion. Your off point school diversion is with out merit. Black students had the highest number of High School graduates, Highest number of HS graduates moving on to further education and the lowest number of teen pregnancies in our HISTORY, during President Obama's tenure.

  • jussaying

    I want to stress that you are not wrong in your definition of immigrants at all. And I agree with that definition.

    But as for Carson, slaves did not work hard for "very little," they worked hard and were not compensated. "They work hard for very little" is more commiserate of what happened for poor Irish and the Eastern Europeans who immigrated here when NY was just entering the industrial period.

    I think it makes all the difference given how he said it, what he negated to explicitly state, who he is, whom he is associated with (a racist), and given we live in a time when racist viewpoints have become extremely mainstream. So the context of what he said, and the greater context of where we are at socially DOES bring a different connotation in comparison to what Obama said. Perhaps if he stressed that they did not come here voluntarily, explicitly, people would have been less angry.

  • SoChlo

    That's why you can't have a honest conversation with them about anything. If they are not mocking somebody, name calling or just behaving utterly disrespectful.
    Obama is the multicultural President so I expect him to say dumb things like that... and I also expect the know nothing Democrats never to call him on it.
    Yet we will correct Ben and he will learn from his mistake and even though he meant well and we understood what he was saying even though it was a silly statement.. the democrat hyenas are out for blood... they didn't get to pick the President. Lol with their resist facts protest.

  • Kim

    I have had insurance for the the last three years which I didn't have for 15 years because of Obamacare.So if he didn't do anything else during his tenure that was enough for me, because it extended my life.That is the most important benefit to ME, my life.So Ben Carson who said Obamacare is worse than slavery can go to hell and take his idiotic comments with him.

  • AggieMom96

    That is not even close to what Ben Carson said smdh

  • AggieMom96

    Sweetie no one expected him to single out blk ppl. However as an American his presidency was of great benefit to me.

    You're confusing intelligent people who happen to be black with idiots who voted in Trump because he was white.

  • AggieMom96

    Now you know you never were and will never be first in anything in your life. Time to face facts and move on. Deal with it.

  • Justlooknout

    Folks conveniently forget that 99 percent of what he tried the "Re pubic" smashed it down like were spiking a volley ball.

  • AprilRain

    I have no idea what your trying to say, be more specific or keep it moving.

  • Zizzle
  • AprilRain

    "Sweetie" I'm glad his presidency benefited you, was hoping you would give specifics but since you didn't I'm gonna have to assume what I will... You referring to those who voted for Trump as idiots, and black people as intelligent..... wow, not only are you condescending, your racist.... white=idiots...... if I didn't understand your comment correctly well then you should have been more specific....AggieMom is a racist..... I'll make note of that. Side eyeing you azz...

  • mocha brown

    Byeeeee !!!?didn't read ish you just said!?

  • mocha brown

    Yal must be retards!??? and on drugs??

  • AprilRain

    That's your story tho, what about the millions of others who have been highjacked by Obama care? My grandparents for example, they live in a budget obviously and pay $800.00 out of pocket a month on medication with OC...... how disgusting is that.... and my grandfather is a Vet.....he served in Vietnam..... OC has been the worst thing to happen to them since retirement. And I personally did not take Bens comments as sideways as you did..... it takes some serious delusion to take it that much out of context, no offense.

  • AprilRain

    Of course you didn't, people like you can't take the heat, only dish it out, you weak azz dummy....

  • AprilRain

    Not nearly to the extent they are doing with Trump.....not even close.

  • Leigh Burton

    Since Obama has a white mother and an African father whose ancestors were never slaves, his comment is more offensive than Ben Carson.

  • Itzgoingdown

    What were these HUD Secrtaries SIGNIFACANT ACCOMPLISHMENTS?

    What good is it to graduate H.S. if you can BARELY READ? See Schott Report.

    What good is it to go to college if you don't graduate? Black Women had the highest college ATTENDANCE rate of any group but also the HIGHEST COLLEGE DROPOUT RATE of any group EXCEPT BLACK MALES. Leaving both with student loans they'll never be able to payoff in their lifetime!!! How in the hell can 70 to 80% of students go to the worst schools and then excel in college? This is the liberal "Trick Bag" they're playing on blacks. It's like dropping 100 black kids in the middle of the jungle. Just because a few made it out doesn't mean they all could have made it out. Most never even had a chance. The government has done studies only 5 to 6% (5 to 6 out of 100) of black kids from the ghettos will become upper income professionals. Barry knows this that's why his kids went to the BEST PRIVATE schools in Chicago and D.C. (just like he did in Hawaii). Yet, he blows smoke up common black folks a$$ about college and education while refusing to unchain BLACK KIDS TRAPPED in horrible ghetto schools.

    Barry most certainly targeted and helped Specific groups. Gays, Illegas and Muslims...environmentalist.... pretty much every liberal group EXPECT BLACKS, fact. Out of the 220 executive orders he signed only 2 applied to blacks. smmfh Extreme Black Liberalism is nothing more than a doubling down of the 60's hippie socialist/communist communal ideology that the hippies themselves abandoned BECAUSE (economically) IT DOES NOT WORK!

    After 50 YEARS of leadership Black Liberal Extremist Leaders refuse to accept accountability and responsibility for their failed ideology. They only deflect, blame others and complaim While every recent immigrant group has PASSED blacks (including black immigrants) econmically and academically within 20 years of being in this county, fact!

    This new black leadership after King starting with Jessie all have a few things in comon. They have no knowledge of community, nation building, don't know how to create sucesfull businesses that creates a product or service and have gotten rich or make a very good living off of "FIGHT'N FOE DA POE". Getting rich and or making a good living is not the problem. The problem is their ideology of soicalism and SOCIAL ENGINEERING will never lead to anything but more poor blacks...... a PERMANENAT UNDERCLASS. How in the hell are you going to win being a socialist in a capitalist country? Also, a plan that doesn't take into consideration the opposition is not a viable plan. It's a fvcking fantasy. Black leadership leads by using fear tactits, blaming others and selling fvcking fantasies to common black folk!

    I use to think like you. Stop reading ONLY liberal and feminist opinions and Black Extreme Liberal Propaganda.

    I'm a racist because I'm a superior being? Lol. Okay. Whatever. You who made a statement that a blk man "sold out his race" are not even capable of rational or intelligent thought.

    And anyone who can't google what Obama achieved in his 8 years is an idiot. It proves you're just a pathetic hater if you can't own up to one personal benefit of his term in office. Whatever.

    Reading is fundamental but comprehension seems to be arbitrary with you. Again- whatever.

  • 2brefrank

    This!!??

  • 2brefrank

    Right i said this on a previous post as well. My grandmother on my moms side looks like a straight up Indian...said she was black but never really traced her history either....I'm still tracing my history... but my feathers are totally not ruffled by these words.

  • AprilRain

    You are racist, you are the definition of racist.....you literally called yourself a "superior being" ? Based on what exactly? Who do you think you are some kind of deity that can call white people who voted for Trump idiots and respond by calling yourself superior.....what a twisted and warped mentality you have. I am embarrassed for you, but more so I feel sorry for you. Your racism has led you to believe you are better than others so much so that you pat yourself on the back while in the process and belittle others who don't "believe" you and your so called entitlement. I've done my research on Obama, I lived through 8 years of his presidency and saw first hand the effects of his agenda of separation of race, religion and political views.... You poor child are the result....and every deprived individual that now thinks they are better than others based on those 3 categories and where "He" placed each.... I absolutely cannot find or admit to one, not even one positive benefit from his 8 year term. He did the complete opposite, and like I said you are the example, not the exception child. Racism is a sin.... a detestable sin. Shame on you and your "superior" grandiose perception of self.

  • 2brefrank

    Thanks for breaking it down for me because sometimes everyone is in an uproar and I'm standing there like WHET HAPPENED?

    Maybe it's just me-- i just literally don't think anyone's words have that much power to rewrite history or make me upset. Preachers get flack all the time for not expounding or saying the wrong thing and i've endured that after ministering at church a few times. Maybe that's why i'm not bothered and unscathed because as long as you are a public speaker, as long as your business is out there...someone or many ones in this case will pick you apart and say what you said or did was wrong. I can't climb in anyone's heart and reveal their intent but i don't' think anyone intended to downplay slavery....if they did..then shame on them. To me..it's words!

  • 2brefrank

    This was wrong to say because...slavery was worse than Obamacare or nothing can be compared to slavery?

  • what?why

    Slaves were brought to America by their own people and sold for their benefit. Reading is fundamental.

  • Mo Mobetta

    I know idiots smdh

  • jussaying

    i get that. but words do have power. nothing is stronger than words imo. on a more concrete and literal level: words are what our laws are made of and those laws unfortunately have the capacity to dictate the trajectory of our lives or if we even live. words convey attitudes and said attitudes are what helps to shape those laws. we must be careful about what we say and how we say it in our daily
    lives and more so for public speakers. this is something that Trump still hasn't seemed to grasp. his attitude and the way he uses his words have fractured our relationships with various international allies. and his attitude is causing dissent and deviseness to become even more pronounced within our own nation. words are extremely important.

  • AprilRain

    Is that you in your gravi? Very beautiful ? I must say!!

  • AprilRain

    ??....I can see this, and I'm not black, I just genuinely care about the people of my country.... no matter the race, religion and political views, we need to stand together as Americans. A nation divided will not stand, and I fear the deception and denial runs much too deep for this country to come together ever again. Obama indoctrinated a whole generation into extreme liberalism, which I believe was his whole purpose..... the younger folks, white/black/hispanic who were 13 to 16 when he was elected are now the crazed liberal extremist we see at riots around the country who cannot engage in a healthy debate on any level, accusing people with differing views of being racist/sexist/homophobic- and so on....Obama accomplished his agenda....

    Thank you! I'd rather be basic than walk around thinking I'm some kind of superior being based on fairy tales made up in my head. Being basic and simple is exactly what I strive for! Now you and your complicated azz can take a seat in the front row and pay attention!

  • 2brefrank

    Its words...a comedian says it and every one laughs. It doesnt rewrite history. Why you always gotta call me names though. Black folks..we are way too over the top. the hate that is spewed all over this blog lets me know that the black community is struggling with severe feelings of hate and bitterness. thank God that slavery is Past us now let's move forward and revel in the freedoms that were won because of people like Martin Luther King who said only light can drive out Darkness...

  • Felicia Mack

    Smh when white people put thier 2 cents in what is defined as "racism"...while at the same time defending an openly racist Preisdent. Yet racism is a sin...but this dumb thing is defending a President who is racist against blacks...Hispanics and a bigot towards Muslims...so it's not really racism she has a problem with...it's the hatred towards whites she takes is issues with....that is the only form of "racism" that bothers her...

  • TrayLynn

  • Felicia Mack

    First black President crashed the glass ceiling that is America for black Americans. His politics didn't have to help black people, his presence alone set that mandate. Stop speaking on black issues dumbass. Your ignorance is seeping through every dumb biased comment you make.

  • AggieMom96

    That's rather the point. I'm always in the front row. You seemingly understand that yet you continue to rail against it...?

  • Felicia Mack

    No black people are vulnerable because of our enemies...;i.e. White people, police officers, insincere supposed color blind people like yourself, and coon ass black people like the confused heffa that runs this site. There is to much evidence to show Americas bias against people of color especially blacks. And quite frankly the majority of whites get offended when these facts are thrown in thier face. They preach this bogus ass we are all Americans nonsense and in the same breath will turn around and practice blatant divisive acts of bias.

  • AprilRain

    I'm not white honey, and Trump is not racist. Give me 1, just 1 example of what could be proof that he is racist, and don't give me MSM cause they are all liberal elite propaganda components used to cause division..... he is not racist, you have been lied to. You have been misled by the campaign to discredit him.... he is against terrorism, and against those who would come into our country claiming to be refugees but are in fact jihadists, conquering in the name of Allah..... what kind of president wouldn't want to take measures to protect the citizens, Obama, that's who.... Obama wanted them in here to conquer and establish Sharia law because he is an Islamic extremist.... I'm so sorry that you cannot see that for yourself. And who were you talking to as if I was the third person? You can speak directly to me.... I truly want people to wake up. You are all being used, all of you.....and it's working. The black community are being used as a tool by the global and elite establishment to cause division, hatred and chaos...... and you guys fall for it.... they want to enact Marshall law, they want to take your guns and your freedoms, they don't want us to come together as Americans.... I don't give 2 chits about the color of anyone's skin. I care about the future and freedom in this country for our youth....thank God the majority of Gen Z are conservative. They are our only hope.

  • AggieMom96

    Idiots always think only athe applicable parties take offense. Liberal blacks have issue with this? I guess educators and professors are all liberal and black smdh.
    Do go away oh ignorant one!

  • AprilRain

    How? According to my mom he can't, which I never understood.....can you give me more info?

  • AggieMom96

    People love to project their ignorance and inadequacies on everyone else. It's so pathetic and transparent.

  • Felicia Mack

    We are superior in every field imaginable lady. These are facts not opinion and not fairytales. Perhaps you should stop getting offended at the thought of black superiority...I know that both upsets and scares you...and start getting upset at the white supremacy that aims to clip the wings of the black American public in general...

  • AprilRain

    I know there is plenty of racism occurring around us, I don't doubt that at all, my concern is the level of deceit and exaggeration. You know dang well hands up don't shoot was a lie and look what that lie turned into.... and this has been getting worse, the lies and deception that is, in order to push people further away. Obama pushed us back a generation.

  • Felicia Mack

    Alternative facts at thier best...Sharia Law? Really?...anyway....The majority of your race is racist. This not a ploy by the government and blacks are not the pawns in this situation. Black people are the unfortunate victims of white supremacy gone unchecked for centuries. And don't think I don't get the undertone nature of your responses. Calling black people racist and insinuating we are the reason racism won't go away....of course it's not whitey and thier unfathomable hatred towards us...no it's blacks who can't just let things be and stop starting trouble and creating racial tension...listen you dirty musty bitch....please dismiss yourself from this conversation...as stated you don't speak for me

  • AprilRain

    Wow, ok just put thoughts and words into my mouth if that makes you feel better, but it sure as h3ll don't make it truth.... I am offended by black superiority huh,,,,,, that's a new one..... and it scares me even.... your sick.....you are a sick sick individual and you need counseling or therapy,,,,,,you have serious issues if you automatically assume one who disagrees with you hates you because of the color of your skin...to the point that you even have to defend your race by saying your better at everything period.... that is some serious over compensation on a large and dangerous scale.

  • Felicia Mack

    That's not a defense mechanism...again it's facts...

  • AprilRain

    People like you, with your depraved mentality are the problem, not the color of ones skin, not the religion, it's you, and your mentality..... black people have been the victims of supremacy for centuries? Who teaches you this stuff. Last I checked my race were slaves too but I don't need to play the victim, nor do I need any special attention,,,, we are not living in the past, it's 2017 and the only person who keeps you chained is yourself and not allowing yourself to think outside the box of centuries ago... people like you hold their race down.....it's called bitterness, resentment which leads to a mentality of entitlement.... you dismiss yourself, you don't own me, you lost the debate because you cannot control yourself, Engaging in a healthy debate without calling someone names isn't that hard.... truly, it ain't hard at all....

  • Felicia Mack

    Sandra McElroy...look her up...

  • AprilRain

    In your twisted world..... far from reality...

  • Felicia Mack

    So we haven't? Do you even know what a history book looks like? You can't be this naive...I refuse to believe you are...and this isn't a debate...it's one enlightened person talking to a racist wanna be white troll. We fought for our rights they weren't given to us. We bled..fought...died...and we succeeded in obtaining the freedoms we have today. We are where we are because of our resilience...not because we given respect and fair chance. So stop speaking on mentality and entitlement. It's not an entitlement to want fair treatment in the judiciary system...to want the chance to own homes wherever we choose without being subject to bias loan practices..to not be shot dead by police without due process...to have our constitutional rights recognized and not trampled on simply because of skin color...now begone foul wench

  • Tiffany Lee Miller-Earley

    Preach

  • AprilRain

    And you don't have these things currently? You mean you are the only race that has to deal with racism so therefore are entitled to special treatment.... I'll tell you how warped and twisted your argument is, you can call me whitie and no one says a damn thing, but if I were to call you blackie heads would start rolling and people would start foaming at the mouth. That's some bull shyt right there, and not even cause I would want to call you that, one has to be extremely angry and hateful to call others names simply because they don't share your views, skin color and religion....well done child, well done...

  • Tiffany Lee Miller-Earley

    I like your arguments. You said exactly how I feel although I wasn't able to articulate it.

  • Felicia Mack

    Hispanics do as well...but you don't seem to be worried about that right? Anyways....you chose to speak on black people and what we need and how WE should feel about Obama...so as a black person I felt the need to tell you to STFU with your ignorant assessments on the world. If you didn't have your tounge so far up whiteys ass perhaps that would have correlated with you....

  • A D N

    Hmmm...well, Obama's comment, according to your reasoning, may be because he lacks the ability to connect with the "black" experience in America (although I don't believe he does), but Carson should know or have indirectly experienced something... In other words, Carson's parents or grandparents, aunts, uncles, somebody should have shared what they have gone through as a citizen in America. Obama's immediate family members would not be able to understand the level of pain inflicted due to "race" because of their "race".

  • Gingertee

    That may be the case of his ancestors but those of his wife and children were and he was raised as a Black man in America so he does understand the pain behind this. This is evident in the manner in which he said compared to Ben Carson who prior to this stated slavery didn't happen. This is also evident in the long pause he took before proceeding with the speech written for him. Ben Carson made it seem like a whimsical trip to the promised land.

  • dontgetblocked

    Both Carson and Obama are wrong. The slaves were captured and forced to stay here. If they had a choice, they would have gone home to their families and their homeland. That's different from sailing up to Ellis Island without chains.

  • dontgetblocked

    He spent years in the Middle East and then returned to Hawaii. How many black men do you know from Hawaii. Obama's experience is anything but black. He's African and white.

  • AlwayssB

    Lmao, Sandra you know Obama is the Black folks Messiah, he also called them Mongrels, and Thugs, no protests about that.......nope!!!!!! Fake Hypocrisy!!!!!!

  • AlwayssB

    Black people don't research he referred to you guys as Immigrants on several occasions. Look it up, its 2017, ignorance really isn't bliss!!!!!!!

  • Gingertee

    I actually know 4 because we do exist there. You think having a White mother gave him a easy life, the same woman who could not afford healthcare, died and left him with her parents. In this country there's no such thing as African and White. Those Race options on applications are very new. If he had this great privilege you imagine, he would have had an easier presidency and they would not still be trying to destroy him now. A person doesn't have to get burned in a fire to know that its hot.

  • Jamal Warner

    He did not downplay slavery, Ben did downplay it in front of his party constituents.

  • Jamal Warner

    There's no fake hypocrisy. It is the content of how it was said. He did not refer to slaves as immigrants in this speech.

  • Joi Calloway

    What Obama said: "those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily" who "in their own way were immigrants themselves." What Ben Carson said: "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. Unless i missed something black slaves worked very hard, were beaten , tortured and worked for nothing but another ass whooping. Please tell me when Obama said something similar to this?! By using the same word, but in 2 totally different context. Obama acknowledges that black slaves came involuntarily, not by a big welcome boat to America!

  • Anji

    As a Black American I received the HAMP modification. My son who has Aspergers can now receive treatment through county Regional centers. I have other examples. I received these not because I am Black, nor did I get turned down for not being white. I volunteer in schools of Compton, Watts, So.Central. I see our devastation everyday I visit. I work with the parents. Obama nor any other President, alone, can make any sizable dent in violence in urban areas. Nothing will happen unless a concerted effort is focused on the root of the plantation situation....and no politician who wants to remain alive will address the truth.
