Report: Biden's Ancestors Owned Slaves, So Doesn't He Owe Reparations?

Linkedin Share

A look into Joe Biden’s genealogy shows that his colonial ancestors owned slaves where they lived in Maryland.

According to the New York Post, the Biden family history was uncovered by Alexander Bannerman, a genealogist in West Virginia, and lineage expert Gary Boyd Roberts.

Per the Post

After the 2020 presidential election, Bannerman worked alongside Roberts to put together Biden’s genealogy for the winter 2021 issues of American Ancestors magazine.

Bannerman told Schreckinger that during their research, the pair found that two of Biden’s ancestors on his father’s side enslaved people while living in Maryland.

Jesse Robinett, the president’s great-great-great-grandfather, enslaved two people in Allegany County, according to the 1800 Census, Bannerman said, while Thomas Randle, another third-great-grandfather of Biden, enslaved one 14-year-old boy in Baltimore County in 1850. The state of Maryland does not list any Bidens in its slavery database.

So, doesn’t this mean that Joe Bide personally owes slave reparations to black people?

Isn’t that how the left works with its accusations that whites owe these mythic reparations?
