This is bizarre to me: What do you think about the fact that somebody wrote a book about Michelle Obama's ancestry? Here's a quote from the lady who wrote it (the article is mostly about how one of Obama's ancestors owned the woman whose child he fathered):
"I hope that the book will encourage people to talk more openly about slavery and how that wrenching period of American history still reverberates in this country, shaping countless contemporary family lines, whether black, white or in-between," she writes on her website. "What I loved most about Mrs. Obama's ancestors is that they were ordinary people who loved, struggled, strived and found their way forward under enormously difficult circumstances. Many of us share those kinds of stories. We only have to start digging to find them."So Ms. Obama has to have her ancestry mined to heal our country? That's just strange to me, and unfair. It feels seriously exploitative - she didn't do this with Michelle's consent.
