“We’ve been researching the history of the Dawkins family, and have discovered that your ancestors owned slaves in Jamaica in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. What have you got to say about that?”

"I know, I know. I've asked them repeatedly to stop and still the history of my ancestors remains the same. It appears I have absolutely no bearing on what came before me. I must tell you, that reality outrages me. Maybe you can tell me why my dead ancestors won't listen to me? They have been left out of my will, I assure you. We no longer speak to those dead people."

I would end it with a sweet "fuck off".
