PRESIDENT OBAMA IN FICTION

I've seen a white male president in a bunch of television shows (PERSON OF INTEREST) and movies (LONDON HAS FALLEN) made between 2008 and 2016 -- as if President Obama never came to exist. But finding this Spiderman cover made up for them all. 

Spiderman is the one that counts



But I haven't forgotten the e-race-ers. The producers are the main decision makers aren't they? Wouldn't they be the ones to decide if the fictional president should reflect reality?




PERSON OF INTEREST PRODUCERS
J.J. Abrams...executive producer (103 episodes, 2011-2016)
Bryan Burk...executive producer (103 episodes, 2011-2016)

Athena Wickham...producer (103 episodes, 2011-2016)
Joshua Levey...co-producer / associate producer / producer / supervising producer (102 episodes, 2011-2016)


LONDON HAS FALLEN PRODUCERS
Guy Avshalom...executive producer
Gerard Butler...producer
Boaz Davidson...executive producer
Valentin Dimitrov...line producer: Bulgaria
Mark Gill...producer
Peter Heslop...co-producer
Zygi Kamasa...executive producer

I wonder what the decision making was like. Why did producers decide or allow the decision to be made to e-race President Obama from their fiction?

I've been led to believe that sticking close to reality is why I've seen maybe 1 fictional black president out of 100 black presidents prior to the year 2000? Isn't sticking close to reality why we don't see Asian and Latina Presidents instead of white male presidents in our fiction right now?

So, I wonder why there wasn't there a black man playing the president in every television show and movie made since 2008?

Just kidding. I'm not wondering at all.

But, I also haven't forgotten the foreshadow-ers. The series "24" had a black president on the show for a long time before the real one came along.
