Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, may be descendant of a black slave
by Kunbi Tinuoye | July 30, 2012 at 3:15 PM

New research has uncovered surprising findings about President Obama’s ancestry.

Researchers at Ancestry.com have discovered that his lineage does include at least one black slave but not on his Kenyan father’s side. Obama’s white mother is most likely a direct descendant of one of the first documented African slaves in the United States, said the team of genealogists.

Its team, while lacking definitive proof, said its research “strongly suggests” Obama’s family tree — on his mother’s side — stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.

In 1640, John Punch, an African, was a servant in Virginia who escaped, was caught and sentenced to remain enslaved to his master for life.

The Ancestry.com team said records suggested that Punch fathered children with a white woman, who passed her free status to those children, giving rise to a family of a slightly different surname, the Bunches. The researchers said over time, as the Bunches continued to marry, they became prominent landowners in colonial Virginia and were known as white.

I have to wonder — Did his father’s ancestor capture the slave that his mother’s ancestor bought? :=)

Let me guess... They've determined that she was a poor black child?

Then, this must be her long-lost brother...

To me she looks more like she was descended from the Cherokees.

Does that make his policies less Socialistic? Does that mean that he is making good decisions about the economy? Does that mean that he does not hire ridiculous leftists for Cabinet heads? Does that mean that these Cabinet heads are not destroying America?

Does that mean that America can survive his Presidency?

I care less about his background but really care about how he is going about destroying America - and the Democrats are going along with it!

Probably to be 51% black....so he can be the first kinda black but not really black president because Bubba is the first white, black president.

If her supposed slave ancestor was from 360 years ago, Stanley Ann wouldn’t even be 1/32 African. More like 1/262,000 using 20 years per generation.

So, his ancestors on his father’s side may have sold his ancestors on his mother’s side.

Unlikely, since Kenya is east africa and most slaves came from Ghana-Nigeria-Senegal-Gambia West Africa.

Unless you hold with the Frank Marshall Davis is his father idea, in which case it becomes possible.

African American slaves had ancestors who were African slaves. It was really unusual for (white) slave catchers to penetrate from the coast. Rather, blacks sold other blacks into slavery in Africa.

Ghana has as a tourist attraction some formerly Dutch slave forts. Their original function was to hold slaves brought from Nigeria to Ghana to work in Ghana gold mines. Only later were they used to hold Ghana slaves for shipment to the New World. The Dutch forts were eventually traded to England as part of a treaty.

Amazing how much trivial and invented BS we know about Barry Soetero but we know very little substantive and concrete information regarding his life.

Where’s the friggin beef?

I don't understand what this has to do with anything. Lets say that mitts 11th great grandmother was black...would that suddenly shift 50% of the black vote to him? I see crap like this as more crud to talk about rather than his economic policies, close association with liberation theology, communist, Marxist, domestic terrorist ties. Socialist and Communist members of his administration should be a topic of conversation, but is ignored by most.
Perhaps a careful examination of his debt and spending followed by his presidential edicts that violate his oath of office, federal law. Creation of dream act policies and the lack of border enforcement is a subject that is ripe for a 24/7 attack on this president. GITMO, continued war in the middle east, bombing Libya to keep Kadafi from killing his own citizens, and ignoring the situation in Syria, and his disrespect to Israel while helping to prop up the Islamic movement in Egypt. And I am suppose to care what color he is? OH SCREW THAT! Thanks

I’ll bet if they went even further back in the begats, he’d be related to Mohammed....and even further back, I’m quite sure it would be Adam himself. Wow. Amazing where an exponential doubling function gets you.....lotsa possibilities, huh, Zero?

Using the one drop rule, Obama’s mama’s race should have been coded as Negro on his long-from birth certificate. Now Obama can really claim some street cred with the African-American community.

Malcolm X says the name "Bunch" came from white people who owned slaves! He references the surname Bunch more than once in the first two minutes.
