Racial Revolution

The revolution is being televised.

The revolution of racial attitudes.

In prime time.

On shows such as the sitcom New Adventures of Old Christine, starring Julia Louis Dreyfus.

On last week's show Christine worries she's not good-looking enough to attract a really handsome semi-stranger...

Her dorky date wistfully notes how handsome the stranger is.

Nobody--absolutely nobody-- mentions that the really handsome semi-stranger is Afro-American. (Christine and her dorky date are Caucasian.)
