In this undated file photo, date unknown, World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Jack Johnson is seen. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., wants a presidential pardon for Jack Johnson, who became the nation's first black heavyweight boxing champion 100 years before Barack Obama became its first black president. Johnson spent nearly a year in prison for violating the Mann Act by having a consensual relationship with a white woman — a conviction widely seen as racially motivated. (AP Photo)
Hmmm... undated file photo, date unknown? Oh, Associated Press, I can help you with this one! I don't know the exact date, but I'm going to guess 1970, when The Great White Hope, from which the above photo is a still, was made. To clarify: that's not Jack Johnson; that's James Earl Jones pretending to be Jack Jefferson, a semi-fictional character based on Jack Johnson. It's OK, AP, don't worry... I was confused, too.
UPDATE: Ha ha! For some reason, the above photo has vanished from AP's offerings.
UPDATE: When I got home I was able to check AP's site, and –oopsie!– they totally purged the picture from their catalog.
