WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says he was recently given documents showing that both he and his wife are descended from people who owned slaves.

Paul Simminger: will Beto remove himself now from the running for presidency considering the fact that his ancestors owned slaves? Inquiring minds want to know...

John Jarrard: so.. many people did.. Still don't owe a penny.. welfare has taken care of that.. fake handicap payments.. etc.. section8. must we go on?!?!!

Larry L. Garrett: Glass houses and all that. Beto! It would be interesting how many Democrats have that in their ancestry as the Southern wing was the party of racism and jim crow.
