BARACK Obama Watch: THE post-racial world just keeps on changing. Here’s Beyonce Knowles waking up to a new dawn in the World According to Obama (WACO):

In “Beyonce: Now it’s time for black Wonder Woman”, the singer says:

“A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing.”

Says the Mail on Sunday:

“And she has likened landing the role to the election of Barack Obama, whose campaign she backed.”

Or not.

What Beyonce actually said was:

“I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great. And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right?”

And:

“After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, ‘OK, I need to be a superhero’. Although, when you think about the psychology of the heroes in the films these days, they are still a lot of work, of course, and emotional. But there’s also an action element that I would enjoy.”

She makes no mention of Obama. And the worry is that the singer has, unlike the Mail, fails to understand what not being black or white in a post-racial world really means…
