Apparently if Angelica can do it then so can Obama. It would really be interesting to find out who some of his relatives. I saw a special on 20/20 that alot of them end up having caucasion relatives and not even knowing it.

His mother is Caucasian and his father is Kenyan. . . . Those are actually a few of the reasons he was initially greeted with suspicion in the African-American community. They felt he hadn't "paid his dues."

No slave ancestors (at least in America). There were plenty of slaves amongst warring tribes in Africa though. Maybe he could try there? Unless his Caucasian mother had a slave ancestor.

They were SLAVE TRADERS. Yep. His ancestors were Arabs who bought and sold black African slaves.

So if he ever gets in the 'reparations mood' he can sue himself and his AFRICAN relatives. My ancestors didn't own slaves (his did) and one of my ancestors died fighting against slavery (his didn't).

Oh .. another interesting Obama family tidbit ... his grandfather, being a good muslim and all, had 14 wives.

One blog to read

Another blog

The second blog states - (paraphrase) - while blacks in America were shaking off the shackles of slavery, Obama's ancestors were busy slapping them on blacks in Africa.
