President Obama is a combination of Kenyan and Irish blood: A tree cannot stand on the ground without its roots

It takes two to make a child. President Obama, African American, is in reality half White and half Black.

The town of Moneygall, Ireland, is preparing to welcome the US president.  Moneygall is the town from which his great great great grandfather immigrated to America. For political reasons, Obama’s opponents tend to focus more on his Kenyan blood than his European blood.

President Obama is a combination of all of his DNA. The Kenyans and the Irish can both claim a piece of him. That’s the beauty of mixing! As the Luo of Kenya say, “A tree cannot stand on the ground without its roots.”
