Cutting Corners Can Hurt

by

MSFT guy
Seattle’s KIRO 7 says that Microsoft is apologizing for changing an ad for the Polish market by photoshopping a white guy’s head on a black guy’s body.

There are almost no black people in isolated Poland (less than 5,000 in a country of 38 million) so swapping in a white dude isn’t necessarily racist.  But obviously the way it was done is brutal.  How easy it would have been to have another guy sit in for a different picture.

Oh how taking short cuts will sting!  This is also the kind of thing that mainstream US media could exploit for weeks.  Here’s TC’s version.

And I’m pretty sure the black/white guy is using a Mac.  Ummm..???
