Why is America obsessed with Sen. Obama’s race?

The Congressional Black Caucus honored Bill Clinton as the nation’s “first Black president” at its 2001 annual awards dinner. The Diversity Inc article also tells of other presidents who may be considered black (who is considered ‘black’ is dependent on who you ask, especially since there is no biological, genetic or otherwise scientific basis for race categorizations/definitions, except for one, the human.)

Which reminds me of when Alan Keys said of Sen. Obama that he, “possess[es] insufficient negritude.” That is quoted from Obama’s autobio reprinted in this article- Identity Crisis.

No commentary, just relating some interesting information.
