> I understand that and in some instances it is needed to differentiate people. However, when talking to someone I won't say "my black friend John Doe went..." but "John Doe went..." so I don't see the need for all the media outlets always stating "Black Presidential candidate Obama...". The only purpose I can see for it would be as method of undermining his candidacy by inferring he is inferior because the race label was attached to his name. This would not surprise me.

If nothing else, it speaks to a bias toward white as the normative position.
