Carson Comment Controversy

Washington, DC (WOLO) — The new Secretary for Housing and Urban Development under the Trump Administration is back in the spotlight and it’s not for the work he’s done so far.  This time the Doctor is in the spotlight once after comments he made during the first speech of his tenure.

The comment that is now generating so much buzz was a statement Dr, Carson made comparing slavery to US Immigration saying “quote “There were other immigrants who came here on the bottom of slave ships.”Carson later defended his remarks on twitter saying you can be a “involuntary immigrant.”

Not good enough for View Co-Host and Comedian, Whoopi Goldberg who responded to Carson’s comments writing him for him to “please read or watch Roots, Most immigrants come here voluntarily, can’t really say the same about the slaves, they were stolen.”
