He was the first President in America not of America. As it says in the wiki link he was just President of Congress and that's it. He was about the
same as the Speaker of the house or the Head of the Senate that we have now. Also the comedian is wrong he was not a black man he was white.
Thanks for that, Buster. I looked him over multiple times but I don't see where he is black either. I'm merely reporting the information that's
This article in the Huffington Post claims that there were 6 other Presidents with Black ancestry:
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Dr. Auset Bakhufu includes the 34th president in his book 'Six Black Presidents: Black Blood : White Masks USA,' saying Eisenhower's mother, Ida
Elizabeth Stover Eisenhower, an anti-war advocate, was part black.
In his book, Dr. Vaughn claimed that the nation's 30th president also had black ancestry, writing Coolidge "claimed his mother was dark because of
mixed Indian ancestry. Coolidge's mother's maiden name was ‘Moor’, in Europe the name was given to all blacks. Dr. Auset Bakhufu says that by
1800 the New England Indian was hardly any longer pure Indian, because they had mixed so often with Blacks."
The country's 29th president, never denied his black heritage. According to Rogers, "Harding had black ancestors between both sets of parents.
William Chancellor, a white professor of economics and politics at Wooster College in Ohio, wrote a book on the Harding family genealogy and
identified Black ancestors among both parents of President Harding. Justice Department agents allegedly bought and destroyed all copies of this book.
The country's 16th president is widely known as "The Great Emancipator," but in his book, Rogers wrote that Lincoln was in fact the illegitimate
son of an African man, and that his mother was said to have admitted that he was the progeny of a black man. This assertion has yet to be
In his 2001 book, 'Black People And Their Place in History,' Dr. Leroy Vaughn cites an article written in the Virginia Magazine of History that the
country's seventh president was the son of an Irish woman who married a black man. The magazine also stated that Jackson's oldest brother had been
sold as a slave.
In his 19-page pamphlet 'The Five Negro Presidents,' Joel A. Rogers wrote that the country's third president was described by a political opponent
as the "son of a half-breed Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father."
It is no secret that Jefferson fathered children with his slave Sally Hemmings from his Monticello residence. However, any evidence of African
ancestry remains unconfirmed.
Jefferson allegedly destroyed all papers, portraits and personal effects of his mother when she died.
I find it all very interesting.
