sam jackson & ben carson

*Ben Carson has damn near made Samuel L. Jackson blow a fuse for suggesting slaves were simply hardworking … immigrants!?!

Earlier we reported what Carson said, but if you missed it, the new HUD Sec. said this in a speech on Monday: “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even harder for less.”

And you just knew Sam’s response to Carson’s ignant comment was going to be a classic and it was:

“Immigrants? In the bottom of SLAVE SHIPS??!! MUTHAFUKKA PLEASE!!!”

Seems Sam could leave it at that. He also added this (veiled uncle tom reference) hashtag #dickheadedtom

Earlier we reported …

*Ben Carson today referred to “slaves” as “immigrants” who came to this country in search of a better life.

President Trump’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development made this latest baffling blunder in a speech to department employees this afternoon.

“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity,” Carson said. “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

He added: “But they, too, had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”
