Obama’s Ancestors Reportedly Owned Slaves – Politics Annotated

“Reitwiesner said he also found that two other presidential candidates — Republican John McCain and Democrat John Edwards — were descendants of slave owners.”

I thought in this modern day that we were no longer held responsible for what our ancestors did. I’m sure if you go far enough into anyone’s ancestry you will find a horrible person. But you will find many more good people. This is a non-issue.

Why aren’t they reporting on important things – like the candidates’ history on education, and child welfare?
