Samuel l Jackson. Ben Carson gave a speech on Monday that raised a lot of eyebrows, including Samuel L. Jackson’s.
In his debut as secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Carson told agency employees about the virtues of the can-do American society and used “immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships” as the examples of that virtue.
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.” TMZ
Naturally, Twitter was up in arms about Carson’s comments. This is what actor Samuel L. Jackson had to say about it Samuel L. Jackson just skewered Ben Carson for suggesting slaves were simply hardworking immigrants … in the most Samuel L. fashion ever.
If you missed it, the new HUD Sec. gave a speech Monday where he said, “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even harder for less.
Jackson fired back, “Immigrants? In the bottom of SLAVE SHIPS??!! Mothaf***a Pleaaase!!!”
He buttoned up the tweet with a hashtag that’s a barely veiled “Uncle Tom” reference.
