who was a member of the Luo tribe of Kenya

Luo (Kenya and Tanzania) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

which makes him an African, and Obama and African-American,

These appeals to race and racial smearing are disgusting, you right wingers should be ashamed of yourselves.

So far on this site alone we have had post after smear posting of lies about Obama. Instead of your bullshit question, the real question you should be asking yourself is why thwe right wing engages in that kind of campaigning and whether people who spread smears and lies, from Obama being a Muslim to Iraq having WMDs, should be allowed any role at all in running this country.
Thanks, FTL. That's somewhat of what I was looking for although I couldn't get the first one to load up even with cutting and pasting. What you did post is the common sense way of looking at his lineage but I was asking about genealogy. That wasn't really addressed in the link. If Kenyans identify themselves as "Arab" before "African", it clouds the issue.

I won't be ashamed of myself, though, because I come here (in part) to check the things of this nature that I hear against a different sounding board. The original blog appeared in February of this year but only now seems to be getting traction. If the laws of the United States dictate a genealogical progression, then it might be relevant. OTOH, if it's pure and utter crap, then so be it.
