For awhile, a story has been going around
that Sen. Barack Obama Jr. isn`t really African-American at all, that he`s 7/16th Arab and only 1/16th sub-Saharan African. Well, it`s not true. Here`s a picture of his parents.
It`s quite possible that Barack Obama Sr. might have been a little bit Arab, and it`s certainly possible that some of Sen. Obama`s ancestors sold their fellow black Africans
to Arab slavetraders. But this rumor that Barack Obama Sr. was 7/8th Arab is silly.
