UK NEWS: OK! MAGAZINE – DO ALL BLACK MEN LOOK ALIKE???

 

Noel Clarke

OK! Magazine has posted the news on their website that actor, producer and director Noel Clarke is going back to school to direct a Christmas Navity play.

However members from the OK! team don’t really seem to know who Noel  is or what he looks like.

If they did then they would not have posted a photograph of UK rapper KANO with this story.

Kano

To quote the words of James Moran  “black guy with stubble, close enough eh?”

This is absolutely hilarious! *shaking my head*

UPDATE: A not so slick OK Magazine has now uploaded the correct photograph, but I have managed to take a photo of the original page.

The damage has already been done! ha ha ha.

  1. You should have taken a screenshot, they’ve corrected it. Gone are the days, when magazines/newspapers did actual research. They’d fail their coursework at university.

  2. It’s a bad mistake SoFrolushes, but I don’t see why it’s racist. How is it ‘like saying all black folk look alike’? That’s entirely your interpretation.

    If they’d printed a picture of Jennifer Aniston and said it was Courtney Cox, would that have been racist? Orjust a ballsup?

    Racist, by your logic…

  3. @ Jason Grove,

    But we get that all the time. I cannot count how many times white folks have approached me and mistaken me for another black girl they know. It is not racist but it is a mistaken identity of people who cannot distinguish a certain kind of people. it is what it is.

  4. @ Jason Grove … I did not mention racism. Please if you are going to quote or paraphrase me do so correctly without interjecting words as you please.

    Fact still remains that such a mag would make such a mistake. Its not hard to find out who he is or what he looks like. his website his twitter or even the dr who fan pages as he is an actor too.

  5. Co-signing TY’s Comment…

    certain TYPEs of celebrities are just not that important!…seriously how much time would it take to just Google the him and see what he looks like?… smh!
