The following statements aren't jabs or disrespects. But this is why it is important to know facts. And you are one of the many individuals to whom I've had to correct for mistaking facts on a few occassions. While it is a novel idea that there may have been a minority president before Barack, there is nothing to support such a claim.
The John Hanson claim is often hotly contested. Although most are sure he was a moor, not all moors are black. That statement is the rough equivalent of saying all Cubans are black. Though it is suspected that he did have some ancestry there is no adequate way to prove it. As for Elias Boudinot, I believe that you are mixing up the two Elias Boudinots. There were two of them. One of them was a fat husky old man who was white and indeed was also the president of the continental congress. There is no mistaking this man's white heritage. On the other hand, there was another who was a strapping young Cherokee who was responsible for posting the newspapers. He was actually born several decades after the constitution had been written, so it is impossible for him to have been president. He was subsequently assassinated in 1839 for his advocation of removal. He knew that the Cheerokee people faced overwhelming odds.
