"Obama is derived from the word "bam", meaning crooked or indirect, she said in her book."

I can believe this by Hussein Obama's recent action of "Fast and Furious", Solyandra, crisis fatuous spending, his lying, etc. makes me believe he is a real descendant of the crooked Obama family and is living up to their namesake.

This is such a bigoted approach to genealogy. Why only african slaves. We were all descended from slaves. English were slaves to the Romans, Italians were slaves to the Barbarians that overran Rome, etc. Why is this person being so narrow minded and limiting it to just africans?

They are to stupid to know history like that. Its all about the afros. no one else were ever slaves. We made something of ourselves something none of them ever acomplished in life, so sad after all these years it looks like they would have made something of them selves by now.

Government schools will not teach this either:

The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

I guess we should know by now it is "racist" to post the truth. Only distorted history is allowed by some people so they can try and get us to pay them money.

Up to one-half of all the arrivals in the American colonies were Whites slaves and they were America's first slaves. These Whites were slaves for life, long before Blacks ever were.

seem,s like obama wants to bring this back, under a different name of course!
Doctors eworking for free, Joe the plumber taxed to death & sharing the fruits of his efforts with parasites, businesses overburdened with taxes and legislation etc. Call it what you call it, it is the servitude of the hard working class.
