Thomas Walker, a direct ancestor of George W. and George H.W. Bush, was a notorious slave trader active in the late 18th century along the coast of West Africa.

As I recall, the actual import of slaves from Africa to the USA completely stopped around 1800.
As I recall, the total number of slaves brought to the USA from Africa was about 500,000.
As I recall, about 95% of African slaves were purchased in Latin America and the Caribbean.
I bet this really hurts his chance at reelection. Wait, whut???
Does this mean that obama’s great, great, great, great grandfather was NOT a slave trader? It seems to me that most slaves were sold by black africans to start with.
Many of the slave traders out of west Africa were Muslims, and the slave boats that carried people from west Africa over the Atlantic stopped in the Caribbean. That many of the slaves came from the Caribbean is no surprise, but I can’t give you exact percentages.
Bush’s fault. Everything is Bush’s fault.
And Obama is CURRENTLY a muslim communist traitor .
But at least his great great grampa (whoever he was) didnt trade slaves...
....and Obama’s great-great-great-great grandfather sold him slaves..................
You truly don’t think they are going to let facts stop them from writing a story to disparage the Bush’s. This is only to go after Jeb and his potential run.
Now about the Pretender in Chief and his ancestors’ role in the African Slave trade.................in the 19th and 20th century!
Somewhere in my lineage I am related to Abraham (of the Old Testament).
What does that say about me?
And guess what? I bet Obama’s Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather was one too.
*ALL* of 0bama’s paternal ancestors were slave traders.
The Mohammedan Africans established and ran the African slave trade, and, in fact, they are still running it today.
0bamao’s father was a Mohammedan Arab/African.
Do not be so sure. If his father really was the Luo tribesman claimed, it is not unlikely that he would have. Don't the Luo speak the language developed by the Arab slave-traders, to communicate with their native allies in East Africa?
Check it out!
Meanwhile, his grandfather's and father's ample involvement in founding and expanding the United Negro College Fund must count for nothing.
OH geesh... here we go...
Slate fiddles while America burns.
“His” means GWB’s.
