Many across the country are paying tribute to long-time Georgia Representative John Lewis who passed away over the weekend from cancer. He was 80. Lewis was well-known for fighting battles for civil rights including walking along side the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

That’s why I’m so dumbfounded that one of his colleagues, Florida Senator Marco Rubio missed the mark when he posted what he thought was a photo of himself and Representative John Lewis to pay honor to him. Instead, the photo was NOT Lewis at all. It was Rubio and another famous African-American political figure Elijah Cummings who passed last fall.

Sigh.

Wrong Black man.

Correct Black man.

Do these two men look alike to you?
