The MBPs have been getting scarce in America’s newspapers since the end of basketball season. Now along comes a baseball-related Misidentified Black Person.
The following correction ran in yesterday’s Los Angeles Times:
“A caption with a photograph from the coming ESPN series ‘The Bronx Is Burning’... said it showed Daniel Sunjata portraying player Reggie Jackson. It was Bill Forchion, playing coach Elston Howard.”
(That’s Forchion pictured above. Sunjata is over here on the right.)
Big thanks to RP for letting me know about this. If you come across any MBPs, whether on TV or in a magazine or even on the Web, please do email me at the address on my profile page.
