In the show Scandal, Kerry Washington plays the role of the White House’ crisis manager Olivia Pope and it is one of the regularly watched shows every week by millions of viewers.  Kerry recently in an interview with Ebony magazine said that she would have passed on her current role in the show if the President on the show was black.  Even though the show is fictious, Kerry Washington told Ebony magazine, “I was little concerned because [the character has] a scandalous relationship with the [occupant of the] White  House.  I thought, ‘If the president on the show is Black, I will not do the show.’ Because to me, it was too important a moment. I didn’t want to do anything that  compromised my relationship with the [president] or that made it seem like I had  an insider view on the Obama presidency.  To read more click the link:  http://necolebitchie.com/2013/02/08/kerry-washington-would-have-passed-up-her-role-on-scandal-if-the-president-was-black/#more-229912
