Why does CNN refer to our president as the first African American president?

Which of course he is.....but then they (and other leftwing media) refer to Zimmerman as white hispanic. If CNN was unbiased and consistent, shouldn't they call our president the first WHITE African American president.

    It's funny how liberals rant about racism 24/7, yet they're the ones who label someone's race every time they talk about him/her. Everyone else sees Obama as the president; liberals see a black president. You tell me who the racists are. It's certainly not conservatives.

    ethnicity and race is what makes up the term white Hispanic.

    so it's a correct term for Zimmerman.

    there is no such legitimate term as white African American even though there are African Americans who actually look white.

    Mixed race

    He's truly African American and white

    Majority of blacks in America are mixed race, most have some white ancestors

    Why do you care so very much? President Obama refers to himself as African American.

    No, they should call him a Mulatto, which is the proper term for a Black and White mix.
