Obama has just made a Freudian slip in Colombia; maybe it's because of hanging out with Shakira. He was participating in "a cultural event to recognize the historically marginalized Afro-Colombian communities and to grant the descendents of slaves the formal title to their land." In part the story says:
Standing alongside President Santos of Colombia and singer Shakira in the Plaza de San Pedro, Obama reflected on his own ancestry.
"Early in my presidency, my family and I visited Ghana in West Africa and we visited the historic Cape Coast Castle and I'll never forget my two young daughters, the descendents of Africans and African-Americans, looking out through the door of no return where so many Africans began their forced journey to this hemisphere," he said.
First this says Obama was reflecting on HIS OWN ancestry. What exactly does Obama's ancestry have to do with his comment?? He was not born to African-Americans in the United States. His father's family weren't slaves, plus they were from East Africa, not West Africa. His mother's family weren't slaves either.
And second, see how he describes his daughters. What's missing??
Decedents of white slave owners.
His daughters have a mother, you may recall, most daughters do. Their mother's ancestry IS African-American and most likely the descendant of slaves.
Does that clear things up for you?
Umm, I think he was reflecting on his daughters' ancestry.
My brain started going fuzzy somewhere around the mention of Shakira. Not sure why.
I see what you’re getting at, however, if I were visiting Germany, I might say I was a descendent of Germans and not mention other european ancestry.
A single shred of truth.
“Reparations” goes global.
The chant of the Occupiers," All pigs must die" can be universally applied.
where so many Africans began their forced journey to this hemisphere.
Africans traped and sold africans as slaves yet it’s the white who must take all the blame.
It appears that blacks can never blame a black for anything.
> where so many Africans began their forced journey to this hemisphere
He forgot to mention that the forced journey really began when Moslem tribesmen invaded villages and took the survivors to be sold as slaves, to the East, as well as to the West and North.
The Moslem-run African slave trade continues to this day.
Because 0bama0 is not a descendent of African-American slaves, and because his father was a Kenyan Moslem, it is very likely that 0bama0 is a descendent of African SLAVE TRADERS!
ROFL and lol.
I believe Shakira’s from... Columbia.
And when a colony for freed American slaves was established in the independent Republic of Liberia, they choose to have a Constitution just like the US does, not Communism or Socialism or other Wealth Redistribution;
In 1820, the American Colonization Society (ACS) began sending black volunteers to the Pepper Coast to establish a colony for freed American slaves. The ACS, a private organization supported by prominent American politicians such as Henry Clay and James Monroe, believed repatriation was preferable to emancipation of slaves. Similar organizations established colonies in Mississippi-in-Africa and the Republic of Maryland, which were later annexed by Liberia. On July 26, 1847, the settlers issued a Declaration of Independence and promulgated a constitution, which created the independent Republic of Liberia.
“It appears that blacks can never blame a black for anything.”
Very much like the Muslims!
There’s probably a very enlightening study that could be done on that topic.
Why the distinction between Africans and African-Americans? His daughters are decendents of African-Americans who have lineal roots in Africa. Why not just say they are descendants of Africans, as are most African-Americans?
Definition: Lineal descendant--a blood relative in the direct line of descent.
Who are you to bring logic to this thread?
OK, there was a single shred of truth. His daughter’s great or great-great grandparents may have been slaves. Whoop-dee-doo! My great-great-great Scottish grandparents were just barely more than slaves to the land holders in Scotland and England. The first American-born generation in every line of my family sent boys off to fight to free the black slaves here. And I do mean boys. A 15 yr old in one case.
His daughter’s mother is an African America...so they are descendants of Africans (through Obama’s father - 25%), African Americans (through Michelle - 50%) but also of white Americans, whom Obama leaves out, through his own mother - 25%.
He has wholly rejected that part of his own ancestory as evidenced by his ideology and presidency. He wants to treat it like it does not exist.
But the truth is that his daughters are 1/4 white...and always will be.
Nothing wrong with any of this, except the part about him turning to marxism and Black “liberation” in an effort to “fundamentally change”...and destroy...America.
THE MAN WHO DESPISES AMERICA
The question is what Obama left out.
