Ben Carson sparks outrage after referring to slaves as ‘immigrants’

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson provoked a firestorm on Monday after he described slaves brought from Africa as “immigrants” who dreamed of success for their families in the United States.

Carson, who is African-American, made the stunning remarks during an address to employees at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington.

People were quick to remind him that slaves were bought, kidnapped and forcefully brought to the US whereas immigrants chose to come to the US voluntarily.
