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.

"What Dr. Carson was talking about is that as the war captives where not killed but sold into slavery to the British and later Americans who brought them to the Americas was that they had hope for a better life then if they where sold into slavery to the Arabs or killed in whatever tribal war they lost." per ncal. That is not what he said. You are giving him more credit than he deserves.

Regardless of their history before being enslaved to be brought to this continent, they were NOT immigrants. The horrific treatment received before being either sold by their African captors or captured by Europeans does not lessen the impact of actually being a slave. Ben Carson should have chosen a different way to discuss the issue. He could have, if he'd thought it through, but he did not.

Salves from Africa where war captives by other African tribes sold as slaves instead of killed. Thia African tradition has been going on for many thousands of years.

What Dr. Carson was talking about is that as the war captives where not killed but sold into slavery to the British and later Americans who brought them to the Americas was that they had hope for a better life then if they where sold into slavery to the Arabs or killed in whatever tribal war they lost.

In American public schools the history books have been so politically rewritten by Obama and the Democrats that most American think that Africa was a happy place until the white man arrived and raided the peaceful villages to kidnap people for slavery.

I've no idea why you would say that, HFT.

"Immigrants" have the option to move or not to move, sometimes under duress (such as during the Irish potato famine) but still by their own choice. "Slaves" are kidnapped, often tortured and suffer horrific treatment when forced to relocate. They lose family connections, homes, property, livelihood, and their freedom, if not their lives at the hands of their oppressors.

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