|President Barack Obama's mother has an African decedent.|
Ancestry.com takes a look into the president's maternal roots and discovers that his late mother Stanley Ann Durham has a decedent that traces back to Jonathan Punch, an African slave from Virginia.
According to The New York Times, a team of genealogists is upending that thinking, saying that Mr. Obama’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.
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 — servitude for life — 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, years before Virginia adopted laws allowing slavery.
Historians say there was a trade in human labor, of both whites and blacks, during this period in American history. There were also some free African-Americans. Beginning around 1617, indentured servants were bought and sold, as were debtors, in the Chesapeake Bay region, said Ira Berlin, a University of Maryland professor and expert in the history of slavery. But while those people were in an “unfree condition,” he said, historians cannot pinpoint a date for the beginning of the slave trade.
An interesting finding of President Barack Obama. Now let's move forward to the reactionary outrage from his political foes. The Republicans and their conservative allies will waste no time discussing this in the usual disgusting fashion.

Somehow White conservative males seem to be the reason why this country is so fucked up! If you got people like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Karl Rove and Mitt Romney talking shit about the president and the Black community, you're obviously not aware they're dog whistling White voters.
White males are the most pessimistic voters whenever a Democratic president is elected. It's way worse if a person of color or even a woman is elected to be the President of the United States. They just can't stand it!
They are the arm chair warriors who spend their days collecting ammunition, insulting people online with reactionary comments, calling talk radio programs to vent off frustration over the government and decrying the end of days in biblical formation. They would rather see this country restored to its "glory" days when White male influence dominated the country's decisions.
When you hear comments like "I want my country back!", it's a dog whistle for White voters.
