There is this huge uproar in the media over the apparent swap of a photo in Microsoft’s polish web site.
Microsoft has even apologized for it.
Apparently, MS switched a photo of a black guy( rather, just his head) , for a white guy in their Polish website. The same photo has the black guy in the U.S web site. Seriously, I don’t find anything racial about it. The demography of Poland states that there has to be a white guy in the picture. They don’t have that many black Microsoft users. I consider even the U.S website to be racial. Yeah!! There is an Asian, Black and a White Woman. Being a woman, I am happy that there is a woman but being a brown Indian, I am not exactly jumping with joy. The black guy portrayed is actually not black, but rather brown….so I am OK with the brown part. How about the Indian part? I am sure if you statistically scrutiny the demography of Microsoft users , there are bound to be a lot of Indians. Heck ! The number of Indians working in Microsoft is good enough. I ask you, why the hell don’t they have an Indian. Or, have all the Indians moved to Mac?
