Can someone explain about this link to Barack Obama?
Someone has posted a link to the New Black Panthers supporting Obama.

I don't think it is a legitimate link, but the Learn, Issues, Media, Action, People, Blog and Store links are all active and legitimate -- or so it appears.

I don't want to challenge it without knowing about it.

Can an Obama supporter tell me if this is a legitimate link or can anyone make up a link like this and hook into Barack Obama.com?

5. What's the problem?
A group of outspoken African-Americans for Barack is no different than a group of outspoken feminists for Hillary.

The fact that they support him does not in the least imply that he supports their organization.

6. This is an individual's page.
An individual signed up. No posts. No friends.

Why bring it up?

7. I didn't bring it up.
The OP did -- and mentioned the possibility of challenging it.

I understand that it's an individual's page and wondered the same thing: why bring it up?

8. If it's hinted, it will be repeated, if it's repeated, someone might believe it. Nothing new here.

That's how they work. Dangle a little bait, no matter how tasteless, and see if someone will bite.
