Obama, a declared Muslim, is not upset about the tag of slave owner being laid out in the open. Acquiring and owning slaves is just a way of life in Islam. Islam is responsible for raiding African villages, capturing the healthy villagers, handing over the captives to slave traders for a handsome profit. Islam is responsible for the majority of slaves that were brought over to America (North and South). Muhammad condoned slavery and gave slaves as rewards to his companions. Slavery is still practiced by Muslims today. The fact thereof and the slaves are just well hidden.
