By some, not by most. OTOH, one of Obama's nominees that I know of has hispanic heritage and intentionally uses the hispanic version of his name to help him get places he otherwise might not. It's a low level nominee so most people haven't heard of him. It works both ways. Probably more to Obama's advantage.
You think most racists would treat Obama same as a white man? Okay.
And you think Obama gets more easily into places because he is black, even though you don't think he's black? Okay.

Tiger Woods does not refer to himself or his baby as black
Woods has famously refered to his mixed-race identity as 'Cablinasian,' a word he derived from Caucasian, black, American-Indian and Asian.
Obama was born and raised in Hawaii, the only majority-Asian state in the union; he spent four formative years in Jakarta, the home of his Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro, where he attended local schools and learned passable Bahasa Indonesia. The family with whom he's closest — half-sister Maya Soetoro-Ng and her Chinese Canadian husband, Konrad Ng — are Asian American. So, too, are the most senior members of his congressional team — his Senate chief of staff Pete Rouse, whose mother is Japanese American, and his legislative director Chris Lu, whose parents hail from China.
Evidence for Obama's affinity with the Asian American experience runs true even as one delves deeper into his history. "A lot of aspects of the senator's story will be recognizable to many Asian Americans," says Lu, a Harvard Law School classmate of the senator's who joined the team in 2005. "He talks about feeling like somewhat of an outsider; about coming to terms with his self-identity; about figuring out how to reconcile the values from his unique heritage with those of larger U.S. society. These are tensions and conflicts that play out in the lives of all children of immigrants."
Is Obama a little Cablinasian?
Is Obama just biracial?
Or do we just call him BLACK?
I am sure, he will just call himself black.
That is how he got elected !
wow, you are the forums new Harry Boy...what a stupid post
I should have said some racists, not most. But the point is that you think some racists regard Obama as white; you think he could just as easily call himself white; and think that he has some advantage; and think being black gives him greater access than if he was white. Put another way, you think, like some racists do (so you say), that Obama could be considered white, but he has advantages because he's black. What color do you see when you look at him? I see a black man, and the evidence is overwhelming that that's a disadvantage.
I don't thing we need to call him anything except for Mr. President.
Thats right but how do you stop the Left Wing Media from constantly bleating about Obama's skin color, If I were Obama I would hold a press conference and tell the NY Times, Mush Mouth Matthews and the rest of those loons at NBC (MSNBC) to stop all their "First Black President" crap and start treating him like the President instead of some Godlike Savior from the Mountaintop.
Obama told them never to talk about his "Ping Pong Paddle Ears" and they obeyed him, Keith Olderman would rather kill himself than mention the Messiah Ears.
It must be getting embarrassing for the Obama family now to keep hearing this "First Black President" stuff over and over, especially the children.
IcyPatriot is right, there is no need to call him anything except "Mr President"
(If I were a reporter though I don't think I could resist those Ears)
