35 years ago, President Obama was a high school student at the very elite private school, Punahou, playing basketball and chooming . . . or whatever it's called . . . to his heart's content.

Honolulu is a very racially and ethnically diverse city. If Barry (as he was known then) experienced sideways glances and women clutching purses, it is more probable that he experienced the reactions as a result of his chooming with his other "talented" friends. I'd bet a paycheck on it.
