Wow. Has it really been two months since my last Misidentified Black Person post?
I must say... now that the newspaper industry seems to be breathing its last breaths, I don’t find this concept to be so cute anymore. I’m willing to forgive a lot... if only papers would stop going out of business.
Anyway, as is often the case, I have Craig Silverman (at Regret the Error) to thank for this latest MBP. The Los Angeles Times posted the following correction online this week:
“In Sports on Monday, a photo accompanying articles about Sunday’s Lakers-Clippers game pictured Laker Lamar Odom trying to shoot over the Clippers’ Fred Jones. The caption misidentified Odom as Laker Kobe Bryant.”
Yes. The L.A. Times. Kobe frickin’ Bryant. Unbelievable.
But like I said... we have to forgive.
