Michelle Obama’s Roots Trace Back to her Slave Ancestry

- By Bossip Staff

The New York Times decided to trace the First Lady’s family roots and found out that her great, great, great-grandmother was a slave from South Carolina.

Michelle Obama’s family history is like most other African-Americans. Her great, great, great-grandmother Melvinia Shields was a slave woman who was raped by a white man.  According to the report, Michelle’s ancestry traces back to South Carolina, to Georgia, to Birmingham, Ala., then to Chicago and now to the White House.

Michelle’s family roots were discovered by genealogist Megan Smolenyak, who has now helped the First Lady to unsolve a mystery that many African-Americans seek out to find everyday. Michelle has yet to comment on the study and report that has been released by the New York Times.

    JANICE- Where in this article is any white person blamed for anything, yet alone any problems related to Michelle O.? And I didn’t see any mention of Jewish people at all in the text. What exactly is your issue here because you sound neurotic.

  • resurrected

    I would like to get this type of test done to know my history… People always trying to tell someone one else when to let stuff go but maybe white people should have thought about it before they start the life and world change in America…

  • WhoDat

    White people need to mind their own buisness!!! They weren’t trying to trace her roots for historical reasons, they were trying to dig up some dirt. Well, there was none! Her great, great grandfather was a respected buisnessman!

  • %#&?!!

    That Janice gal needs to get her facts straight for real. The Jewish families that were traced back to the Holocaust demanded and were given REPERATIONS, you dumbzo. And get your eyes checked; nobody is blaming anybody here.

    No one wants to hear your ignorant comments.
    Attention-seeking douche.
