There's no rational reason for anyone who doesn't personally know Obama to call him Barry; it's not like he runs around telling people "call me Barry".
I will not argue that it's not disrespectful. It's most definitely disrespectful, and intentionally so. However, I just don't see why we have to scream "racist" when this is no different than the other guy being known oh so affectionately as "The Village Idiot".
