In my new medical thriller novel >Still With Eyes Closed< I have the 1st black president as in real life. I wanted to call him Davies Jefferson, if you are at all a history buff you know that the 1st president of the Confederate States was Jefferson Davis. I wanted to call him that because it would have been a blow to those who hold onto those old southern traits. The concept of humans enslaving humans needs to die. Although the US no longer practices slavery legally, it still takes place in the form of racism, prejudice and human trafficking.
In my novel I wanted to use that name, but in the end Kept the Jefferson part only. To some extent my novel does indeed look at the dark side of humans and what they are willing to do with other humans. I look forward to a day when the people of Earth can see only one (1) race. The HUMAN race.
