This is an interesting discussion of the cultural clues President Obama sends to the African-American community in speech and action. As the article points out, the clues are so subtle that anyone outside of the community is likely to miss them. The article also notes that the words he uses and his mannerisms are a part of him and unforced. This is a lesson for those who would put on an act to win over audiences. Make it real or don't do it. One can't fool audiences for long.
