Faux Controversy Exposed: Obama also referred to slaves as 'immigrants' in 2015 and Samuel L. Jackson didn't say jack about it

Truth be told many others before Barack Obama referred to slave as immigrants in the past.
  I remember New York's first black mayor David Dinkins saying back in the early 90s.  It wasn't fussed over then and it was no big deal when Obama said it 2015.  But, it’s only because Dr. Ben Carson is a black conservative that nimrods like Samuel L. Jackson and other on the Left have a problem.  Leftists hate black conservatives more than anybody else because their existence blows the Left's template of blacks voting Democrat and staying dependent on government programs.  I'm keeping it 100!  Deal with that!

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson caused a stir Monday when he referred to slaves as "immigrants" — but he wasn't the first person to do that.
In December 2015, then-President Obama made similar comments during a naturalization ceremony at the National Archives.
The president did not specifically say "slaves" during his speech, but instead mentioned "those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily" who "in their own way were immigrants themselves."

"And perhaps, like some of you, these new arrivals might have had some moments of doubt, wondering if they had made a mistake in leaving everything and everyone they ever knew behind.  So life in America was not always easy.  It wasn’t always easy for new immigrants.  Certainly it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily, and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves.  There was discrimination and hardship and poverty.  But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them.  And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more."
