Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California appeared at the Essence Festival in New Orleans to drop a truth bomb on Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. She exposed Carson’s true intentions during a raging speech:
“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD. He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”
In March of this year, Carson made an absurd claim about slaves being immigrants. He actually believes that people who were bound and forced to come to America are the same as immigrants.
Carson had stated, “That’s what America is about. 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.”
He later made headlines again when he boldly claimed that poverty is a “state of mind.” In May, Carson declared, “You take somebody that has the right mindset, you take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there.”
He continued, “And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”
In Carson’s mind, a person can rub two pennies together and turn it into a fortune.
Carson is scheduled to testify before the House Committee on Financial Services in which Waters is a ranking member.
She vowed, “[If he] thinks that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his ass apart.”
