Microsoft Edits Black Man Out of Photo

Thursday, August 27, 2009

What's wrong with having black people anyway? I always find racial discrimination disheartening and I think this is one of them. Software giant Microsoft Corp. is apologizing for altering a photo on its Web site to change the race of one of the people shown in the picture. I always find this sad, does really race matters? A photo on the Seattle-based company's U.S. Web site shows two men, one Asian and one black, and a white woman seated at a conference room table. But on the Web site of Microsoft's Polish business unit, the black man's head has been replaced with that of a white man. The color of his hand remains unchanged.

Microsoft has apologized for editing a black man out of a photo for its Polish business unit. The unedited photo is at top; the edited version is on the bottom.

Microsoft spokesperson Lou Gellos said:

"We are looking into the details of this situation. We apologize and are in the process of pulling down the image."
