This email message is just a HOAX. It contains no malicious scripts or malware. McAfee Avert Labs has not received any report of a user's hard drive being erased from opening the email.
The "Black in the White House" Hoax is believed to have first surfaced around December 2009, approximately one year since Barack Obama was elected as the first African American president of the United States of America, though it's possible that the hoax was originally created much earlier in order to use the elections and subsequent celebrations to stoke the social engineering technique used.
It is a slightly revised version of a virus hoax circulating since 2000, known as "A Virtual Card for You" or "Destroys Sector Zero" We are advising users who receive the email to delete it and DO NOT pass it on as this is how an email HOAX propagates.
