Dr. Ben Carson sounds like he needs some gifted hands working on his brain, with his asinine statement. "Africans came to America looking for a better life as slaves", work long hours for free.

Ben Carson should be considered a role model, but no we gotta prop up manufactured garbage like Beyonce

As long as he doesn't opening his mouth, he's a perfect role model. No I cleaned it up, his statement was even more asinine. Typical response from a Republican. He sound like a damn fool.

I had a feeling B would jump on this. Probably didn't have any issue when Bam said similar. Both men are right though. Forced immigrants maybe better terminology for what they are talking about.

he didn't even know when Barack talked about it because it wasn't brought to his attention by Occupy Democrats

Really no comparison in their statement. Dr. Carson sounds like a complete idiot. Africans came here in the bow of ships for a better life, get the hell out of here. Worked long and hard trying to get a better life.

"That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," he said. "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

for less, really you are trying to defend his bull#### statement. They were Slaves, not less, free. Dr. Carson should stay the token, and keep his thoughts to himself, unless it pertains to neurosurgery.

Carson's wording was sloppy, I gotta admit that. I think he meant that while they were forced immigrants, they still had dreams (although that's not what brought then to the US)

does anyone honestly think Carson doesn't know what it meant to be a slave? he obviously meant that in spite of their situation they hoped a better life awaited their offspring... so much hate from some people

It's just another case of an amateur speaker making speeches. Don't any of these clowns proof read, or rehearse. I'm sure they have a staff. They just haven't figured out how to use them.

dreams to cut the heads off them MFers. Not only sloppy, totally asinine. Would people be defending his statement if it was about the Jews being immigrants on trains to Auschwitz, Poland looking for a better life.

It's this kinda picayune #### that makes people tune out other more legitimate lefty complaints. Way too focused on speech and not on action.

Yes Drew, but you must blame the central brain that directs the collective. Progressives are not individuals, they are Borg

What makes what Ben Carson said so wrong, offensive, and news worthy is his lack of acknowledgement that the act that slavery was wrong. The way Carson said it african slaves were just poor immagrants looking for another life. He was doing what
