Life often imitates art and as I get ready to watch 24 on TV tonight, I thought about how the show has had 2 African-American presidents.  The creators in Hollywood are willing to let an African-American lead the country and the latest has very little experience outside of being the first president’s brother and a friend of Jack.

 Maybe, just maybe…..the next election will imitate the art of television. 

Of course, that means as a country we will have to finally fully embrace the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. but maybe, just maybe we can look beyond color and look at people for who they are and not what they look like on the outside.
