If it is anything like the older PowerMac models, it is a black ring around the cord that keeps it from touching whatever is near it; in this case, the power supply. I would imagine that it is put there for heat purposes.
My suggestion is to leave it alone; work around it. It was there for a reason. No sense potentially destroying a machine if you can work around it.
