My child, you too can grow up to be president!

So long as you graduate from Harvard, and not from Howard.

So long as your birthplace was somewhere comforting, all-American, and instantly recognizable.

So long as when you speak, you sound more like John Edwards and less like Martin Luther King, Jr.

So long as you refrain from ever showing anger, unless you’re white.

So long as you are definitely, definitely not a Muslim, Article VI of the Constitution be damned.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s progress, but it’s not the finish line. Don’t be fooled.
