NEWSPAPER CONFUSES TWO POWERFUL, VISIBLE BLACK MEN
This a New York Times article about President Obama. The man pictured is Corey Booker, mayor of Newark, New Jersey. To be honest, though, I’m cutting them some slack. Obama and Booker are two mixed-race politicians who are good at their jobs, enjoy popular support, and enjoy a sort of “cool/bad-ass” ethos. Mistaking one awesome guy for another awesome guy that he really does look like isn’t so bad. Believe me, the New York Times has fucked up a lot worse.
UPDATE: Turns out Corey Booker was actually involved in the story; he’d made a video critiquing obama’s remarks on Bain Capital. WHOOPS. Always read things first, kids.
