TRUTH !!
Joseph Samuel Wright, who would have been aghast at the idea of a black American president, eventually moved to Kansas, where his descendants would include a great-great-granddaughter named Ann Dunham--now better known as the precocious, bright radical who moved with her parents to Hawaii and had a baby named Barack Obama Jr.
.....even more bizarre, President Obama is also related to the two Bush’s, and former VP Dick Cheney.
