Africans were known to be in cahoots with American slaveowners. Who's to say Obama's ancestors weren't one of those Africans?

That would require some business acumen.

More likely Obama's ancestors collected monkey dung

CherryRed:

In all probability they were NOT, because if Obama's lineage is from Kenya, being in EAST Africa, almost no African slaves came to the Western Hemisphere from EAST Africa.

Namely because the Masai tribe of East Africa were such fierce warriors that the slave traders didn't DARE try to make THEM slaves.

I've actually BEEN to Kenya (on a safari over 20 years ago), and even to this day, the Masai are STILL a people that you don't trifle with.

Awww..... too bad. Cherry so much wanted Obama's ancestors from 200 years ago to be in cahoots with slaveowners.

Slave traders didn't make anybody slaves. Other African tribes did that, taking survivors from tribal warfare. Whites were so susceptible to the many horrendous diseases in Africa that they hardly survived even huddled in coastal forts, where they bought slaves from the interior. Arabs were slave traders longer and in greater numbers than whites ever were, and Arabs to this day disdain blacks (shhhh...don't tell Louis Farrakhan).

Democrats spent the first century of this country's existence refusing to treat black people like human beings, and the second refusing to treat them like adults.

After fighting the Civil War to continue enslaving black people and then subjecting newly freed black Americans to vicious, humiliating Jim Crow laws and Ku Klux Klan violence, Democrats set about frantically rewriting their own ugly history.

Step 1: Switch "Democrat" to "Southerner";

Step 2: Switch "Southerner" to "conservative Democrat";

Step 3: Switch "conservative Democrat" to "conservative."

Contrary to liberal folklore, the Democratic segregationists were not all Southern --...
