Like most people who have common sense and took a fourth grade American history class, actor Samuel L. Jackson wasn’t too happy about Ben Carson’s recent comments that African slaves were “immigrants” who “came here in the bottom of slave ships.”
“That’s what America is about,” the new secretary of Housing and Urban Development and avid Trump supporter said during a speech on Monday.
“A land of dreams and opportunity. 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 one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great grandsons, great granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land,” he told the crowd
Soon after, Jackson snapped off on Twitter:
OK!! Ben Carson….I can't! Immigrants ? In the bottom of SLAVE SHIPS??!! MUTHAFUKKA PLEASE!!!#dickheadedtom
