Obama descended from first slave. Give me a break.

Well, this is certainly a blatantly transparent way to keep playing the race card in this election. While I can’t blame Obama directly for this one, it’s clear that his allies are working to link him closer to slavery in the hopes of playing on the guilt of some current Americans.

What’s really interesting here is that the descendants of Obama’s relative Punch became wealthy landowners in Virginia, a slave-owning state. That means that Obama’s more recent relatives were almost assuredly slave-owners themselves. But of course, the headline “Obama Descended from First US Slave” is a lot more positive for his campaign than “Obama Descendants were Virginia Slave Owners.”

Like the title of my page, I am bitterness personified. I decided after reading another stupid article about another stupid person that I have to get my thoughts out there. My wife is sick of hearing me rant, so now it's the internet's turn to listen. Thank you very much for your time. That is all. Seriously. You can go now.
