The Sixth Black President?

This is absolutely intriguing to me.  When I was young, I remember that my mom and grandmother both told me about a Black President had been in power, long before I even knew about Barack Obama.  More recently, an elderly African-American lady in Minneapolis had told me that I was silly to believe that Obama would be the first Black President.  Warren G. Harding beat him to the punch.  I recently learned about this fascinating booklet from 1965 entitled Five Negro Presidents, and am genuinely interested in finding out how much of it is true.  The historical evidence seems inconclusive thus far, but the possibility of previous Black Presidents is quite provocative.  Perhaps a DNA analysis might shed more light on this topic

Changing the topic to a more verifiable Presidential history, here's The 5 Most Badass (American) Presidents of All Time.
