Why is this photo of Barack Obama giving a fist bump circulating on Facebook?

What's the big deal?

This photo has been circulating on my Facebook for a couple weeks and people keep reposting it over and over again. As I look at this photo, I don’t understand why it’s so important to repost.

I fist bump people all the time. It’s not something that’s difficult and I don’t get huge attention when I do it. Would there be an image of Obama tying his shoes circulating next week?

Can someone explain to me why this photo is such big news? Am I missing something?

I think I have an idea why people think it’s important, but I want to hear people’s explanations first.
