Strom Thurmond's Family owned Al Sharpton's grandfather

Wow.

It would have been fascinating if this story had come out while Thurmond was alive.

Are we all assuming this means they are blood relatives?

You mean, assuming that Sharpton's great-grandmother had sex with a member of Thurmond's family that resulted in Sharpton's grandfather?

Something like that.

I never thought about them being blood related. I guess it's possible. But I know I'd feel weird if I found out that the family of one of my coworkers had owned one of my ancestors. Especially if that coworker was a ridiculous racist (or maybe that would make sense?). I don't know.
