Microsoft Erases Black Guy As Clumsily As Possible


Microsoft is apologizing after coming under fire for replacing a black person in one of its ads with a white person for the ad’s Polish version. Presumably, the company’s intent was to tailor the ad for a country almost entirely bereft of black people, but it’s unclear why they thought Poles would relate to a white guy with a black guy’s hands. Is that common in Poland? [PC World]
