The Monday editorial page column "Patrick-Wakanda link must be explored" by Bill Everhart was a satire on the birther movement that slandered President Obama and on those who may engage in a similar effort to demean former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, an African-American, should he run for president in 2020. Wakanda is a fictional African nation from the movie "Black Panther."
