It's much better if you provide URLs with a post here.
I _think_ you're trying to say that this photo
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0413404/mediaviewer/rm4058018304
is improperly tagged with  Dan Jackson,
because the man on the right looks like the primary image on Percy Herbert's page, and the man in the middle is clearly Michael Callan, so the man on the left would have to be Dan Jackson by default.
But the next photo has no African-American visible, and is also tagged with Dan Jackson. Notice that 2 actors have character name Basserman Boy in that title, and one of them is pictured (Sterling Holloway). Might the man facing the camera, on Betty Grable's immediate right, be the other Basserman Boy?

Here's a Shutterstock image with the 4 faces labeled, apparently from left to right (since I recognize the other 3), and the one on the left is labeled Danny Jackson. He matches the IMDb image. Another Shutterstock image identifies the same face as DJ, as does a third.

Using google to search for "danny jackson imdb mediaviewer", I find the Bashful Bend Danny Jackson also appears in I'm from Arkansas (1944)  (see photo), which is _this_ Danny Jackson. Here's another DJ photo from that title, and another, and 20 just with him in that film (207 total).

So I'm going to move this credit, and re-tag the photo. I'll post the contribution numbers here when I'm done.

(BTW, that's not the only problem with that name page. The birth place listed (South Africa) conflicts with the mini-bio ("South America, Guyana" (sic)). But I'm not going to do the research to fix that.)

Moving credit to Danny Jackson (I)
Explanation given:
This is the wrong Dan Jackson. According to images tagged in IMDb and Shutterstock Images, the Danny Jackson in ...Bashful Bend is the same as the one in I'm from Arkansas. See research and links to images here:

Note that the "as Danny Jackson" attribute will no longer be needed.
I'll wait to correct the photo tag until this credit is moved.

Well, the credit move was declined for "unable to verify".
I'll now wait for an IMDb staffer to reply here.
Here's one more bit of information to add justification:
confirmation that Dan Jackson (I), the current holder of the credit  is  an African-American actor on this google search for Bunny Lake is Missing:

Having just watched the Kino Lorber DVD I just purchased, Dan and Danny are two different people.  Due to the date of the movie, 1949, obviously, due to age, they cannot be the same person. And the Bio for the 1949 Dan goes back for many years.

Charles Relich,
The credit and the photo is now properly transferred to Danny Jackson and gone from  Dan Jackson.
