..."The Eclipse Blues" Continued

     ...and particularly from metastasis skin cancer that becomes a pandemic as a result of a environmental phenomenon scientists refer to as the “global warming mega-effect.’

     The monumental health problems faced by pale-skinned citizens cause widespread illnesses and death that reduces Caucasians to a minority status in the United States. As a result, Caucasians find themselves in a position to need to fight and struggle for their civil rights and equal justice much like people of color had to do during previous decades.

     During the throes of this calamity, the second black president of the United States is elected and must contend with the challenges of the “global warming mega-effect” as well as widespread discrimination against Caucasians and particularly those with a pale complexion who are referred to as “ghosts” which is an epithet used by many people of color.

     The term “eclipse” is used as a metaphor to describe the transition of political power, economic clout, and dominance from Caucasians to citizens of color.

     Two influential personalities, Lutheran Minister Jerry Hines who’s white and newspaper founder and owner Dewey Washington who’s black, come to the forefront in the story and work diligently to end discrimination, inequality, and injustice toward pale-skinned citizens. These men put a lot on the line, including their own well-being, and in the case of Washington, the life of his daughter who is kidnapped out of revenge by deranged David Butterfield, the diabolic leader of the paramilitary, right-wing Pale-skinned People Defense Party that has declared vengeance and violence against people of color.
