Jamelle Bouie gives us much grist for thought: if you are black Democrat, unless you are an outlier like Obama, a star like #CoreyBooker or a specialty act like California attorney general Kamala Harris you are coming from an electoral Bantustan. But black GOPers have the benefit of majority or locality-wide pickings and Fox News platforms. Anointing becomes a true ad campaign sprint rather than an annoying, ass-kissing & grass roots dues paying marathon AND leap- frogging a crowded field. And you have Mr Charlie’s AND Missy Ann’s stamp of approval.http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02/17/why-i-d-rather-be-a-black-republican.html

On the flipside, even fans must admit that a show about a troubled African American or Latino teacher turned, um, rock cocaine dealer and killer would have a little trouble getting green lit—especially if the originator and show runner make it damn clear they want the guy to be an anti-hero hero to black or Latino millennials. Crime can be cool when its not so personal and real. Just sayin’ as we say goodbye to Walt..
