    his father is kenyan and his mother american white.. I think they met at university in Hawaii...

    they divorced when he was 2 and his mother married a dude from indonesia.. (muslim)

    but he went to live with his mothers family in Hawaii and grew up there.

    he by the way belongs to the Church of Christ.. I think his grandparents were christian and raised him thusly.

  • His mother, Ann, was white, originally from Kansas. His dad, also named Barack, was black, from Kenya. They met in Hawaii where Barack Sr. was going to school and where Ann and her parents had relocated. Barack Jr. was actually born in Hawaii.
