The Struggle Files: Local News Reporter Confuses will.i.am. For Wyclef, Wale [VIDEO]
Depending on how you view this video, this is probably the most racist thing you’ll see today or the funniest thing you’ll see today. Blake Burman, a news reporter for FOX News affiliate WSVN in Miami, had a tough time identifying his Black rappers during coverage of the election.
When anchors Belkys Nerey and Craig Stevens tossed to him from the studio, Burman, who was standing live at Obama Headquarters, said he had no new info. However, he hit a gee whiz head nudge to the camera to pan over to who he thought was Wyclef Jean. The only problem was that it was Black Eyed Peas frontman and activist, will.i.am.
When the reporter tried to correct his mistake, he then called him Wale and admitted he “had his artists mixed up.” We know Burman, all Black people look alike. We get it all the time.
