MBP of the Week: Charlotte Observer

Announcing the first Misidentified Black Person of 2009! The following correction was posted online by the Charlotte Observer on Monday:

“A photo of Toni Morrison accompanying the Winter Arts Preview in Sunday’s Carolina Living section was incorrectly identified as being of Terry McMillan, the author, who will be appearing at Lenoir-Rhyne University. ...”

Oh MBPs, how I have missed you. (Hat-tip: Regret the Error.)

Oh you gotta be KIDDING me! Confuse Morrison for McMillan? And it annoys me when someone thinks I teach H.S. Biology! Let's see, hmmmmm Nobel Prize winner vs. author with not quite enough money to hire a friend with gay-dar? OK, that was wrong...I'm going to the corner now
