Just wondering Sorry if some make this in to a bull post not meaning to start anything just really wondering

Blacks these days talk all about the slavery thing , well I read earlier this week about obamas wife being related to a slave girl who grew up to have kids with a white man .
So my question is how are some blacks complaining about the families that may or may not had owned their ansetors when they themselves could in fact be related to the ones that owned them?
Wouldnt that make their family to blame too for the slavery of their own family?
Races are so mixed noone knows who exactly owned slaves.

  • At this point in life it shouldn't matter. We should live today as who WE are as people not who our ancestors were or did. Our experiences in life (including our family history and culture) make us who we are today. That's all good.

  • Agreed, and good point. It is time to let it all go. Didn't a recent president apologize for slavery? Can't we just move on? I love being friends with people from all cultures, it is such a shame that people from my own country shut me out before they even know me. Let's start over from now.

  • ^^^ Ditto. I didn't do it, I know none of my ancestors owned slaves (both grandparents came from different countries). It's a terrible thing in history, but I don't see Japanese bringing up the mistakes of our past, and that happened A LOT more recently than slavery did!

  • Michele Obama is related to a person who was informally adopted by a slave. She, herself, was not a slave. There is no slavery directly linked to the FLOTUS. She wants there to be really bad though. He, however, better not even try to make that connection.

  • Who cares about Michelle Obamas Ancestors? I mean, who really cares? Her husband is the friggin president of the united states. When are black people going to stop complaining about the past. There were white slave owners and there were black slave owners. Who cares?! It's so time to let this go! Why are we still talking about it?

  • History should never be forgotten because we don't ever want to repeat it, but we all need to forgive, allow our hearts to heal, and move on.

  • Actually. you trashy racists need to get over the fact that you can no longer trample all over black people's rights like you want to do. GET OVER IT, SERIOUSLY.The fact that a relative of Michelle Obama may have owned slaves is no big whoop. I think most black Americans learned during the one month that we could learn our history that it was not uncommon for white slave owners to have their pick of their slaves. So big deal. No big surprise there. I'll bet it was a white person who did this "research" to get some race baiting and hatred going on. I don't know of ANY black people who complain about slavery- most of the comments I hear are how closeted and sneaky people are with their hatred and discrimination THESE days.
