Report: Obama’s Ancestors Owned Slaves

WASHINGTON (AP)- A genealogical researcher says presidential hopeful Barack Obama had white ancestors who owned slaves.

William Reitwiesner, in what he calls a first draft into Obama’s roots, says he found the information in 1850 Census records from Kentucky. Obama’s father was from Kenya and his mother was a white woman from Kansas.

Reitwiesner says one of Obama’s great-great-great-great grandfathers owned a 15-year-old girl and a 25-year-old man.

Reitwiesner says the same records show one of Obama’s great-great-great-great-great grandmothers owned a 60-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman.

(The article also notes that candidates John McCain and John Edwards have ancestors that owned slaves.)

Obama is against reparations.

Will Reparations Stance Hurt Obama Campaign?


If support for reparations becomes a litmus test for some African American voters, Obama may not pass it.

During his 2004 senate race against Obama, Republican Alan Keyes endorsed the idea.

“And for a generation, two generations you exempt them from taxation,? Keyes said in August 2004.

Obama’s responded, “The legacy of slavery is immeasurable, but the best strategies for moving forward would be vigorously enforcing our anti-discrimination laws in education and job training.”

Here we have a major candidate for President of the United States, who is acknowledged to be Black and even he has a link to slave ownership. Now given an adored one of the far Left Liberals is against reparations and his own ancestors owned slaves, I would hope that it would put to rest the lame cries for reparations. Enough has already been given and it’s time to let this issue go, forgive and each American do for themselves.

Still no more word on if Obama’s Black Kenyan grandfather owned slaves. One of Obama’s ancestors also fought in the Union army, but he’s still got more ancestors that owned slaves than have been shown to have fought against it. Obama could become the first Black major candidate for President with more ancestors who owned slaves than any of the White candidates πŸ˜€ .

(None of my ancestors have been found to ever have owned slaves, based on my family’s research. Our known ancestors mostly were slaves in various parts of the USA. Some left the USA and went to Canada after being freed from slavery. Personally I’m glad the parts of my ancestry that helped bring about me decided to stay. We can’t change the past, but America is a great place and I don’t want to live anywhere else. Just as those in my ancestry who could have left refused to leave. I don’t make excuses for those in my family who fail, given I know they had opportunities to succeed.)

Is Obama an aspiring Pulpit Pimp?



Just like a Pimp.
No matter how poor someone is, he wants their money.

Hat tip Hot Air.
