Comedian Leslie Jones thinks she can beat up anyone she has a beef with.
Jones cursed out and threatened HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson after he called slaves “immigrants” during a speech to his staff.
Carson mentioned slaves as an example of people who came to the United States under terrible conditions, which they overcame through perseverance. Case in point: The United States twice elected a black man president.
Jones and other black celebrities slammed Dr. Carson for calling slaves “immigrants,” even though he’s correct. An immigrant is “a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign country,” whether voluntarily or otherwise. Carson never said slaves came to the United States voluntarily or gleefully.
Jones lashed out at Carson in a profanity-laced tweet, ranting: “I want to fight Ben Carson!! Cash me outside muthaf*cka! How bout dat!! #Slaveswerenotimmigrants F*CKFACE!!”
Twitter users pointed out numerous instances where former President Obama had called slaves “immigrants” and no one complained.
To be fair… Obama also called slaves, "immigrants."

Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, tweeted an article spotlighting 11 times Barack Obama had compared slaves to immigrants, Twitchy noted.
The most recent instance where Obama called slaves “immigrants” was in 2015:

Like a typical lib snowflake, Leslie Jones had no response to Sean Davis’ polite reaction to her misinformed tweet. So she responded by blocking him.
Twitter reacted by slamming Jones and other leftists for their hypocrisy in blasting Carson while remaining silent when Obama used the same words.
The leftist would rather see the US go down in flames then to admit they are wrong. Foolish

Others reminded Jones that Carson is a world-renowned neurosurgeon who grew up dirt-poor in a Detroit ghetto, so she should show him the same respect that she demands others show her.
