White, black or whatever??

A reader e-mails:

Obama was amazing. It's interesting that he's seen by all as a black man who has a shot at being the first black pres., but his mother was white and his father black. Why is he not a white man? or ???  Anyway, he's the most refreshing person I've heard in years.

I have my own thoughts on the question the writer asks (legacy of racial categories from the old days; America's unspoken obsession with skin color), but would rather hear from you, dear reader. E-mail me, and I'll post your comments.
