Suggested correction: Do you mean the photo of the real Keith Drop when they are in the house with Brian and the lady from the charity shop? If so that person is not supposed to look like Papa Lazarou with black/brown/white face as it's in fact a photo of the person he is impersonating and whose identity he has stolen, e.g Keith Drop when who has the appearance of a white man, hence why Papa is painting his face with make up to look like him.

Happy Birthday, Kevin (or Happy Birthday, Douchebag) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: After Carlos sees the snake on the pole he leaps off the roof onto the pole. When he jumps you can see it's quite a distance from the roof. After catching the snake he is holding onto the pole and asks to be helped back onto the roof. The other characters just put their hands out and pull him up. There was no way with the distance between the pole and the roof they could have come close to reaching him the way they did.
