|Aww .. shucks!|
We all know what a great
action has done to minority groups. Letting everyone know that members of
certain groups get promoted merely on the basis of their race, gender, sexual
preferences, pregnancy or
other victim producing
formula reinforces the knowledge that that they are just as competent and
capable as everyone else. And it proves that there is no discrimination.
Like for example the
story of the photo of the three white firemen taken at 9-11 which was to be
made into a statue - of a black man, a Latino and a white. Unfortunately
the project got canned. Someone must have thought that a Latino, a black man
and a white man sounded like the opening to a bad joke.
The latest bad joke comes from Microsoft. And no, it's not their
Vista operating system.
Microsoft used a photo of an Asian guy, a white woman and a black guy to
promote their web site (no point including any white males - we all know white
males don't go into IT). However when they made up the Polish edition, they
felt the need to make a few Stalinist changes.
For the Polish site, Microsoft
photo-shopped the black guy into a white guy.
How politically incorrect!
Apparently political correctness hasn't made it to Poland. Maybe the population
of the former Soviet
Socialist Empire People's Paradise aren't as enlightened as us mere running
dog lackeys of the military industrial complex. Perhaps being raised in a
communist state doesn't awaken one's
natural leftist political
It's hard to imagine why. Maybe we need more capitalism?
