"I hate to defend Ben Carson,..."

Just curious, why?

I hate to defend Ben Carson, and if he wasn't totally in error, he was not clear. Perhaps this is what confused him: Before 1654 African slaves were brought to the US as indentured servants to serve for a period of time and then be realeased just like other poor immigrants of German, Irish, Scottish and a English descent. A court case sentenced a servant who was not covered by English law a lifetime of servitude and somehow Africans became slaves. Ironically, the slave owner that went to trial was a black man that had been freed and now owned slaves himself.

So yes, while Africans at one time were brought over here without a choice, they may have had dreams as a free American for a sliver of time.

I wouldn't say that African slaves came here and had any dreams of a future. Luckily many descendants of the slaves have had the opportunity to claim the American dream.

I'm praying that vouchers don't gut the public school system which I believe is vital to keep the dream alive.

Agrees with Scandle....why not just say you mis-spoke instead of trying to defend what you said??????? Which was horribly WRONG on so many levels.

Scandle, the problem with stupid is that they are too stupid to realize the stupidity of their stupidity.

Whether they had it better here with the way they were treated is debatable. As for Carson speaking intellectually, that's pure bullshit. He was wrong to equate slavery with immigration. Why not admit, at the very least, that he misspoke?

Dr Carson was talking as an intellectual. With a deep knowledge of African history and culture. Its easy for the common people to take one line and twist the meaning of what he was talking about.

The Africans who where sold to the British and American as slaves has it much better the being a slave to their conquerors or the Arabs where where beyond brutal.

Ultimately the sheep will swallow whatever shit their pretender in chief shoves down their throats. I am no longer surprised that nutcal and his butt buddy defend everything that comes out of the mouths of 45's anointed ones, their brain washing is complete. Nary an original thought can be found between them. They awake each morning waiting to be spoon fed the propaganda they must espouse that day.

This is the way of the feeble minded.

"For anyone to say that slaves are/were immigrants is the ultimate in stupidity."

I'm sure the 'immigrants' of less than stellar shape didn't opt to die at the bottom of ships, then thrown over for shark food.
