0bama is describing his daughters ancestry by his own words- his own by the authors. Who are we to believe as to what he was saying? Well his own words seem to stand decently on their own - he was speaking of his daughters.

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?

First this says Obama was reflecting on HIS OWN ancestry.

Umm, I think he was reflecting on his daughters' ancestry.

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.

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!

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;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberia
In 1820, the American Colonization Society (ACS) began sending black volunteers to the Pepper Coast to establish a colony for freed American slaves.[5] 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.[6] 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.[7][8]

Very much like the Muslims!

There’s probably a very enlightening study that could be done on that topic.

I'll never forget my two young daughters, the descendents of Africans and African-Americans,

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.

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.

“0bama0 is a descendent of African SLAVE TRADERS!”

Imagine that. Obama’s ancestors selling Al Sharpton’s ancestors into slavery. Of course Sharpton’s ancestors were probably easy to catch and had to be sold at a discount.

The problem with this analogy is that Obama is not visiting a country in which he is a descendant ... unless you know something we don’t.

That's close, but there's another way to look at this that really tells us what Obama thinks of himself.

obama is filled with hate, and he shows it regularly. I think he hates his "white" side and will do anything he can to prove he is authentically "black".

"Hate" is a moniker he and other blacks try to foist on white people, but in my daily rounds over the years I see the opposite. White people - strangers - that I see are generally smilling, friendly, and honest. However, I would say that most of the black people that I encounter have a mean and hateful look about them and seem to be angry about - who knows what.

From the blacks I see on TV in interviews, many seem to not be happy UNLESS they can find a reason that whites (supposedly) hate them for one thing or another. They seem to work hard to generate anger, just so they can bitch about it later.

I see it as a severe lack of maturity, wandering through life in a cloud, with a common goal of being a "victim". The "feel sorry for me" crowd. It's high school bull$#!+, interested only in big cars, flashy clothes, dancing and partying.

So long as these groups get their way, and the material things they want, they are somewhat happy. But ask them to put forth an effort and actually "earn" any of it, well, you're automatically a "racist".

After over 50 years of people working hard to cross racial lines, obama has thrown in a monkey wrench and toppled the fragile alliance back to near its beginnings. His "divide and conquer strategy" might work in some cases, except that he is still working with only about 14% of the population. That is why he tries so hard to include Hispanics and others in his "pool of pity" methods.

But until the black rage, the hate, and the reverse-discrimination stops, those of us who are feeling the wrath of obama and "his peoples" should fight back in every way we can; like with our pocketbooks - like the places you spend your money, and the businesses you frequent.

obama is outwardly and unabashedly a racist. He makes no qualms about his color preference and has always done so, from the "typical white person" reference to his white grandmother, to the beer summit, to the Treyvon Martin case.

So what are we to assume other than he the "president of African Americans"...the rest of us be damned. In a perfect world we would let him have is 14% of the vote, and go back home to Chicago, or Hawaii, or Kenya.

But when you mix the liberal ideology with race, it only depends on what time of day it is to see which subject trumps the other.

obama is a catastrophe for America, and I think we should adopt one of his advisors adage, "never let a catastrophe go to waste", and use this record to defeat him in November.

We have to weigh all sorts of options but we're stuck now between a rock and a hard place, with the assumed nominee being a liberal RINO. Do we want RINO, or socialism? It's a very precarious place to be and unless we want to "draft" someone at the convention, or a Ronald Reagan suddenly appears, we seem to be screwed either way. But, November is a long way off, and if we dig in I think we can come up with a solution that works.

That’s an interesting thought, but this is about how Obama identifies himself. Remember, the reporter said Obama was talking about his own ancestry ... which obviouisly wasn’t true, but in the comment, Obama gives something away. It’s a lot like his “my Muslim faith” comment from a couple of years ago.

I don’t think this was a “Freudian slip.” Instead, I think it was something that he deliberately said because he thought it would make him look good - similar to the time Hillary Clinton told the people of New Zealand that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, a national hero in that country (even though she was born a few years before anyone ever heard of him.)

You said it perfectly my friend. Obama comes from the very Muslim Blacks that sent other non-Muslim Blacks into forced slavery across North America, South America, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom and the entire Middle East and North Africa, where Muslim slave trade goes on today, unabated. American Blacks live in forever denial, but....it’s the Obama kind that captured and chained them into forced slavery. Sad.....but true!!! Shucks, the Obama years have put millions of American Blacks in permanent economic slavery on the Obama slave plantation!!! Go figure!!!

You have zeroed in on the most frightening aspect of Obama’s pronouncement. What, exactly, does it mean? Does it mean that whoever owns the land now (one hundred-plus years later) is going to be forced to give it up to “the descendants of former slaves” — who likely never owned the land in the first place?

And, significantly, what does this portend for the US if Obama is reelected? He has now said he favors taking land from its current owners to “return” it to the “descendants of former slaves.” If — no, make that when — applied in the US, it will mean that the government will dictate what land it decides should belong to “the descendants of former slaves.”

And then, the tyrannical confiscation and redistribution of land will begin with ruthless ardor.

I quoted exactly what was relevant and set it up in the header. There wasn’t anything to add in Post No. 1. The reporter said Obama was talking about his own ancestry ... which has little if anything to do with slaves and the history of slave trade. That’s part of the point. The other point is that Obama makes a self-identification that is goes against the nature of one being a U.S. president.

I’m going onto explain it is also not good etiquette not to comment, or tell us about what you think of an article you have posted, at the given post #1, for the initial poster’s comment.

Unless it is a situation similar to where you wish to pass some important information and have to leave for work. Clearly not the case here. Let me compare it to what Rush terms the “drive-by-media”.

Don’t be offended, just understand where others are coming from. Some don’t have time to read entire articles because they are leaving for work, and others don’t like leaving this web site to read an article in it’s entirety at an unknown web site. And you wish to make a point, and this is where you have cheated yourself, by not using the opportunity given at post #1.

His father's family weren't slaves, plus they were from East Africa, not West Africa.

True. And East Africans, especially Muslim East Africans and Kenyans were the key perps in the slave trade. They took, sold and traded slaves. In fact, Kenya's recalcitrance in ending the trade is why the British finally had to occupy and colonize them in the last quarter of the 19th century.

And quite possibly why Zer0's father's family holds a multi-generational grudge against the Brits. The slave trade at that time was not only highly profitable but produced fringe benefits such as the right to cherry pick through the most comely women captors to add to your harem. Failure to understand this fact means failure to understand the anti-colonial Kenyan mindset.

...Sold into slavery predominantly by muslims, then came to the new world where one of their descendents eventually became President of the United States.

Yet a majority of these progeny are still filled with rage for what they’ve laragely let their lot become, and would return this their fortune once more to the squalor of their origins.

Shakira is from Colombia, but is not “Afro-Colombian”.

Her mother is Hispanic, and her dad I believe immigrated there from Lebanon. She supposedly developed her belly-dancing routine doing the floor show in his Lebanese restaurant.

" the descendents of Africans and African-Americans, "

He considers his mother's status as irrelevant to who he is. He is basically saying that he only regards his African Ancestry as defining him, and he is in no part an American.

Of course this is just an offhand comment, so I wouldn't put to much stock in it. I think he tries to tailor his message to the audience, and while he's aware of his mother's American contribution to his existence, he saw no benefit it mentioning it.
