    The more you talked about the subject of "colors" you are poking in our faces! So you are black so what is such a big deal? I am Asian but I don't go around talking about "yellow" skin etc. leave it alone Obama and Oprah, why can't you just live a life instead of poking around the subject. It would be very boring people only go by one color "white". Get a life.
