Shame, the little Monkey Nut have nothing to brag about or run his election on - if he is related to a slave then he also have no heritage, culture or language. After November he will fade away - gone with the wind!.

who cares if he's a slave decendant means zero - if he is he should be happy that somebody put his ancestor if shackles and took him to america or he would be riding a donkey like the rest of them, black people started slavery eons ago. like to blame it on white people. no black in america should be angry with slave trade.also, being african american does not mean your black. use your head, africa is a continent containing contries. a person could be nigerian american and be any color. just another example of those that cannot decide who or what they want to be called strange
