Raise your hand if you’re tired of mainstream media outlets confusing Black celebrities for other Black celebrities. We figured you would be, ‘cause we are, too.

There’s no reason why time and again, mix-ups like this should happen. Whether it occurs on the red carpet or in a news studio during the middle of an interview, this blatant disregard and inability to differentiate one human being who happens to be brown from another human being who happens to be brown is far beyond embarrassing; it’s offensive and speaks to a much bigger issue at hand. It also needs to stop, and as one mistaken celebrity recently posted on Instagram, folks have to “do better.” Here are but a few celebrities who know this problem all too well.
