So if there are reparations for slaves, does Obama owe others money?
It appears that forebears of his white mother owned slaves, according to genealogical research and census records. According to the research, one of Obama's great-great-great-great grandfathers, George Washington Overall, owned two slaves who were recorded in the 1850 census in Nelson County, Ky. The same records show that one of Obama's great-great-great-great-great-grandmothers, Mary Duvall, also owned two slaves.' . . .
Since Obama's father was from Africa and his family never lived in the US, there is nothing on the other side to balance off the ledger.
