Um? Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was slammed on social media on Monday, March 6, after he referred to slaves as immigrants in a speech. Watch the moment in the video above.

“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity,” Carson said while addressing HUD employees in Washington, D.C.. “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.”

Twitter was quick to slam the newly appointed politician.

“Ben Carson..please read or watch Roots, most immigrants come here VOLUNTARILY, cant’t really say the same about the slaves..they were stolen,” Whoopi Goldberg tweeted in response to Carson’s speech, while Samuel L. Jackson added: “OK!! Ben Carson….I can’t! Immigrants ? In the bottom of SLAVE SHIPS??!! MUTHAFUKKA PLEASE!!! #dickheadedtom.”

Chelsea Clinton also reacted to Carson’s ill-informed speech. “This can’t be real. Slaves were not & are not immigrants. 2017,” she tweeted.
