    Default Microsoft sorry for replacing black man with white man

    Microsoft is sorry after removing a black man's face from Business website.

    Controversy arose when it was pointed out that an advertisement on Microsoft's Business Productivity website for IT tools had experienced a face-lift for its Polish appearance; quite literally.

    Adverts for the Polish market saw a black man's face being replaced by a white man's in an obvious photoshop.

    The advertisement originally showed a meeting between an Asian man, black man and white woman, but was so poorly edited for its Polish incarnation that the black man's hand was left unchanged.

    The photograph has since been changed, with Microsoft now trying to track down who was responsible.

    "We are looking into the details of this situation," said a Microsoft spokesman in a statement. "We apologise and are in the process of pulling down the image."

    This story was just too odd not to post and it reminds us of the rumour that Project Natal struggles to see people with darker skin.

    poland has a lot of racism and neo-nazism. it's no surprize that microsoft tried this as a marketing thing. s.
    This is the sexiest signature in the world.

    This time, it's a strong contender to be literally that.

    it might be racist but its still a marketting stategy...

    think of it like this.. it really wouldnt appeal to americans if the lady in the add was wearing a hijab and borkha and the the dude had a beard and was wearing a panjabi.

    And people its not really a big deal... i mean c'mon... now I see that all people who have made comments on this post before me have avatars and signatures with pictures of people on them. How many people in thos pictures are black?? NONE ZERO NADA... Now is that racist... NO... I think that racism now is overrated.. its a multiculural world right now...

    P.S. the only black people i hate are AquaNox and The.Reaper.. and i think Pyro would agree with me...

    We didn't advertise ourselves with something black and later changed it to white, did we? Racism isn't a big deal? Good good. =P

    Somebody doesn't HAVE to put an avatar of a black guy to show his support for equality.

    When you are a multinational corporation, you SHOULD show some respect to everybody. What I see in the first post, is ridiculous.

    That is not the problem. Problem is that they PHOTOSHOPPED the black guy into a white dude. If they had taken a whole new picture, then this would've been avoided. Just because a black guy isn't present in an ad doesn't mean its racism.
