Obama Has Ties to Slavery Not by His Father but His Mother?
President Obamaâ€™s biography â€” son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas â€” has long suggested that unlike most African-Americans, his roots did not include slavery.
The findings are scheduled to be announced on Monday by Ancestry.com, a genealogy company based in Provo, Utah. Its team, while lacking definitive proof, said it had evidence that â€śstrongly suggestsâ€ť Mr. Obamaâ€™s family tree â€” on his motherâ€™s side â€” stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.
In 1640, Mr. Punch, then an indentured servant, escaped from Virginia and went to Maryland. He was captured there and, along with two white servants who had also escaped, was put on trial. His punishment â€” servitude for life â€” was harsher than what the white servants received, and it has led some historians to regard him as the first African to be legally sanctioned as a slave,...

Obama, like you, me, and everyone else, is responsible for his own behavior.
From the news item: "Now a team of genealogists is upending that thinking, saying that Mr. Obamaâ€™s mother had, in addition to her European ancestors, at least one African forebear and that the president is most likely descended from one of the first documented African slaves in the United States.

The announcement comes just in time, as many African-Americans are having doubts about Mr Obama, and he needs all the help he can get.
We shall see whether the lack of proof is mentioned, or that the ancestor, if he be such, was not bought and sold into slavery, but was sentenced into it, for leaving his indentured servitude.
