Today, like most days, Samuel L. Jackson is the voice of reason.
While making his debut as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development on Monday afternoon, Ben Carson said that America's "can-do" value system was best exemplified by slaves — who he audaciously referred to as "immigrants."
Ben Carson just referred to *slaves* as "immigrants"

“That’s what America is about,” Carson said to department officials. “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,” he said. (Oh.my.God.)
Twitter immediately blew the f*ck up over Carson's impudent comments — but the outrage was perhaps best articulated in one vivacious tweet by America's foul-mouthed sweetheart Samuel L. Jackson.
