Joe Biden may soon be one of the first people in line to pay reparations.
According to genealogist Alexander Bannerman, Biden’s ancestors owned enslaved people.
Bannerman did a deep dig into Biden’s ancestors and dropped the bombshell in an article in the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s American Ancestors Magazine.

Joe Biden loves to talk about how receptive his father was to the woke culture.
Well, that may be something Joe made up as well if this report is true.
Bannerman’s research found that Biden’s great-great-great-grandfather, Jesse Robinett, who was on his father’s side of the family, owned two slaves in Alleghany County.
His great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas Randle, also had a 14-year-old slave in Baltimore County.
This also appears to be a purposeful omission on Biden’s end.
Biden regularly touts his Irish heritage, but that comes from his mother’s side.
It also appears that Biden has ties to the Confederacy.
Another relative that is not mentioned by Biden is Allen Robanet.
Robanet is a distant relative of Varina Anne Banks Howell, who was married to Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
Bannerman tried to temper the report, stating that Biden’s family is rather small, with “Not a lot of ancestors, and not a lot of slaves.”
Sorry, you don’t get to play that game here. His family either owned slaves or they didn’t. It really is that simple.
Now let’s wait to see how long it takes for someone in the media to get in Joe’s face about this.
