  • No he did not have a black father. Obama is our first president that is not 100% white

  • I think he was just sleeping with the slaves back in the day, or was that Washington? Ever notice that there isn't any white american that have a last name of Washington? Only African Americans?

  • If he was, I'm guessing he didn't know, since he was also a racist (as was pretty much everyone else at the time who wasn't black)

  • No his father was not black at all i just did my own research. there is a picture of his father on a website just google Abraham Lincoln and it tells you his father and his mothers name. Plus shows you pictures of them.
