|How can a retired neurosurgical doctor be so goddamn stupid? Ben Carson, the DUD secretary said that slaves were immigrants who wanted to achieve the American dream.|
Housing and Urban Development secretary, Dr. Ben Carson said some pretty dumb shit today. It follows a normal pattern of stupidity coming out of Fuhrer Donald J. Trump's camp.
Unfortunate that for an African American man one would think he would know what American slavery. Mind you that he is a retired neurosurgeon who wrote a book Gifted Hands.
One would think that as a Black famed doctor, one would study the history of Black doctors during the early days of America's birth. One would also note that many White folks of that time regarded Black doctors just as less than a Black slave.
Carson made some outlandish comments about immigration and compared it to the slave trade.
"That's what America is about," Carson said. "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."
Seriously, this is what was said from this idiot.
Carson's remarks at his formal introduction to HUD staff was "shocking."
Given that Trump's only Black appointed secretary is willing to undo affordable housing and rollback housing rules that ban discrimination based on race, sexuality, disability and religion.
Carson is the pretty much ready to go.
Carson who recently was appointed to the position is like his boss Donald J. Trump, clueless on how to run a government agency.
By the way, the other dud that got confirmed is Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas. He is now the Department of Energy Secretary. Perry once said during his first run he would abolish this office during his "OOPS" moment.
