Keeping It Simple -- The Obama Family: Owners And Sellers Of Slaves

By Terry McGahey

With all of the racism accusations being made today by the far Left, why is it that no one wants to point out that president Obama had family members involved in the slave trade on both sides, white and black ancestors alike?

Since he has spoken about slavery reparations, I would believe that he would owe twice as much to this outlandish scheme to gain more votes for the democrat party, once for the white side of his family, and once for the black side.

On his mothers side, Obama's great, great, great, grandfather George Washington Overall, owned two slaves who were recorded in the 1850 census in Nelson County, Kentucky. The same records show that his great, great, great, great, great, grandmother, Mary Duvall, also owned two slaves.

Back in the 1700s, Obama's fathers side of the family was from the Luo tribe which was involved in the capture and selling of other black tribesmen in Kenya, which was also one of the main slave-trading centers of that time. When the Muslim slavers moved into Kenya it was for the purpose of exploiting the tribal blood rivalries.

The Muslims encouraged warring tribes to capture members from other tribes and sell them into slavery, and the Luo tribe, Obama's ancestors on his fathers side, did just that.

Isn't it funny that this information hasn't been made public by the liberal and progressive left? What a bunch of hypocrites.

Everyone knows that white people owned slaves in the South many years before, and during the civil war, as well as many others even in the north, but most people don't know that free black's also owned slaves.

At one time free black people owned slaves in all thirteen colonies. This practice had begun from at least 1654, continuing through the civil war. Free blacks owned slaves in Boston in 1724, in Connecticut by 1783, and by 1790, 48 free black people owned 143 slaves.

One black slave trader by the name of Nat Butler regularly bought and sold other black people for the Southern slave trade markets. A Black man by the name of Nicolas Augustin Metoyer of Louisiana owned slaves also. He and his family members collectively owned 215 slaves.

No different than, not all white people owned slaves, not all black people in Africa were part of capturing and selling other tribal members as slaves. Bottom line, The slave trade was all about money.

As I have stated once before, the color of a mans skin has nothing to do with the selling or owning of slaves. Only the greedy people of all colors seeking wealth and power owned slaves.

Should reparations ever get passed, every family within this country would have to dig into their ancestry to see who would have to pay. Not just white people, but blacks alike.

It is time for black people and white people alike to wake up and realize, we must join together to stop this racial hatred towards each other, and start paying more attention to what our government is doing.

Many of our elected officials, white or black, have been promoting racist views, because they want us to keep looking at each other instead of paying attention to what they are doing.

If we don't pay more attention to them, we will all become slaves to the system, no matter our color, and no different than in China. I realize that I have made this statement before but it cannot be said enough.

If some readers of this little column choose not to believe what I have written about here, I say, do the research yourself, just as I have done.

If you are willing to do so, you will find that every bit of this article is the truth and not racially motivated lies like our government likes to put out.
