Irony Express, now leaving the station...

Obama’s slave-owning forebears revealed - Times Online: "According to the genealogists, George Washington Overall, Obama’s great-great-great-great grandfather, owned two slaves, a 15-year-old girl and 25-year-old man, who were listed in the 1850 Kentucky census. Another maternal ancestor owned two older slaves."
Does this saddle Obama with ancestral guilt and white privilege?
