Pay or Collect or Both?

A newspaper has found a very interesting twist in Presidential candidate Barak Obama's past. His ancestors on his mother's side, who are white, were slave owners. So, as a liberal, I assume he supports the idea of reparations. If that were to ever pass, would he have to pay himself?

Ok, everyone I know had ansestors that owned slaves.

I can't even believe they are bring this up..desperate I guess.

Trust me, the Clinton machine will try to do way more damage to him than the Repubs ever could. This is only the beginning.

I don't have any ancestors who owned slaves. But then, I'm not a Democrat either.

I thought it was Hillary who "owned" the black vote :)

My Great great gradfather was a slave trader. He actually traded an oriental rug for a Portugaise princess, who was my great great grandmother.

after reading about the Sharpton Thurmond hook-up, I did a genealogy study myself, and none of my ancestors owned slaves... most of them on my dad's side came in through Massachussetts, the Pilgrims weren't slave owners...

I just googled it... Obama is NOT for reparations, not that he would ever have a chance... but he is NOT for reparations, and most white liberals are NOT for reparations, it is only the Far-left and minorities that advocate for reparations.

Technically, since his father was from Africa, Obama would have to pay Sharpton et al. instead of himself.

Mike...very true

FI...are you serious? Pretty cool story if so.

Joe...thanks for the research

JohnnyB...just proves how insane it would be trying to figure out who would be paid and who wouldn't. It will never pass. Sharpton and his ilk only use it to continue to push his own agendas.

Very insensitive of you to comment on his race. Is this because you are from Louisiana? Is your last name Duke?

Cajun Tiger said...

Anon...very courageous of you to leave such a stupid comment without leaving a name. I didn't bring up race, the article did as Sen. Obama has brought it up on multiple occasions. I guess now that even Sharpton is coming out against Obama's lack of black roots (which by the way I think is crazy), he must be racist as well right?
