Michelle Obama Says “The Blood of Africa Runs Through My Veins”

It seems that the roots of Africa run deep in regards to the Obamas – and not just because many think that Obama was born in Kenya. Apparently, while speaking with a large audience of “brothers” and “sisters,” the FLOTUS explained that the “blood of Africa,” runs through her veins.

The comments came about on Wednesday as Michelle addressed a group of African leaders and innovators where she said:

“The roots of my family tree are in Africa. My husband’s father was born and raised in Kenya. Members of our extended family still live there. I have had the pleasure of traveling to Africa many times over the years, including four trips as first lady, and I have brought my mother and my daughters along whenever I can.”

She furthermore added, “The blood of Africa runs through my veins, and I care deeply.”

I think I speak for us all when we say that if she cares for Africa, she’s more than welcome to adopt it as a permanent home. Both Africa and the United States would be better suited with that arrangement by anyone’s standards.

What do you guys think – shouldn’t an American’s veins be flowing with American blood? Where exactly do the Obama’s loyalties lie? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
