How many people have anyone in Obama's past killed. The KKK is one of the worst terrorist organizations in American history.

Nobody (at least among people of color) is "all one race."

You aren't understanding...for many people, espically the Klan the "one drop rule" still exists. Therefore, people don't look at Obama and think that he is white, even partially.
