Full story: Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

Wire services carried an article a few days ago describing the relationship of the families of segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond and the Reverend Al Sharpton.

Do you really think it is possible to research Obama's ancestry in a short length of time. I cuss everytime I see something listed on one of the Genealogy rip-offs. Theie incorrect research gets written in stone and you just can't even correct it with rock solid proof. Hope Obama gets someone certified and then push for proof before he believes this fly-by-night genealogist.

I agree with you. I believe these reports on ancestry are mostly rip offs.
Not only that...but i would guess that many blacks have ancestors who were both slaves and slave owners. Hear that Val...the black nationalists might have a little white blood too. U know what they say about that tiny bit of blood don't u? LOL

I'm not exactly sure if this is true or not with Obama's ancestors, but it is VERY possible. After all....there were A LOT of Africans who owned slaves and still do until this very day. Think I'm lying? Better ask one of your African classmates or one on the streets.

Hi, Ashley do you really think that Obams's ancestors stii owned slaves? To me I do not think so because Obama father was black man who married a beautiful white woman. I don't see anything wrong with that. Do you have any problem with that Ashley?

Obama is more like his father Because I red his second book that he wrote. Some of the pages that I red said great thing about his father, and also about himself. The book is great!!!

As far as the race of his mother? No way! I am part European and my boyfriend's 100% German (just like Obama's mother). What does this have to do with Obama's parents owning slaves though? All I am saying is that it is highly possible that his African father's family or ancestors may have owned a few slaves back in the day. I doubt if the man owns any now. My African classmate have repeatedly told our class that there's STILL slavery going on the African continent until this very day. I believe him because history repeats itself over and over without any significant change.

According to a recent speech Barack Obama gave in Selma Alabama he stated he never really knew his father and his father was never around as he grew up.
Why is Ashley NOT surprised by this? No clarification needed.

Yes, there are still Slave owners all over the World. Mostly in the Far East, and Africa.

Even in the US. Many Mexican,s forced into slavery to pay the cost of illegally coming to the US. Also many Black Slave owners who call their property Ho's, and Bitches.

Slavery is all about economic control.

If anyone feels a need to criticize Obama for this, assuming its true for the sake of argument, then they should first investigate their own geneology.

I am likely descended of slaves, slaveowners, indigenous, immigrants and Goddess knows who else.

I suppose my right hand should be fighting against my left hand...

Anyone obsessing on this issue has a problem. In the USA, blacks often have white blood, whites sometimes are part black and don't know it, nearly every group is mixed, not only whites but Natives and blacks owned slaves...

Wow, I just can't even figure out whom to hate! Well, not Barack Obama, that's for sure...

If you want proof of his mother family owning slaves, go to the US census and look it up.
These documents show the slave owners and how many slaves his mother's family had. Some out there may have brought this up to use it against him, but it has nothing to do with the person he is today. You vote for the person that is qualified to do the job, not his family. Before this election is over there will be more information on all the runners, it is up to the voter!!

That is a crazy comment. I am brown skinned, about the same complexion as Obama. I don't have a nose ring "or" kinky hair and BOTH of my parents are black.
Do I have to look like militant black panther members from Harlem to be considered "black"? I should think not.
Obama simply looks like a "clean cut" black man. Nothing else.
clean cut black man = has white ancestors, is this what you're saying? Nignogs blame every white person for slavery, so every "black" person with white ancestry should should share that blame also. Why are you considering yourself a descendant of africoons, when clearly you have white blood in ya?

A lot of black people's families owned slaves. It does not make that person who they are today. A lot of black people's families were slaves. Are we supposed to select them and not the others? Some black families bought back their own family members so that they could be free. What if his family did that? It doesn't make a difference in what he's trying to accomplish today.

You are 100% correct but he is far to inexperenced for President.

Let him first rise up to Speaker Of The House or be a Vice President.
