Council sorry for ‘blacking up’ photo.

A local authority has apologised for an advert to promote adoption
in which a white woman and child’s faces were doctored so that they
appeared black.

The photo appeared in Camden Council’s newspaper for residents
Camden Living, but readers spotted that the same woman and child
photo had featured the previous week with white faces.

“The publication of the back page image was a genuine mistake and
Camden Council apologises for the use of what is clearly an
offensive image,” said a council spokesperson.
