In an attempt to save some face, Microsoft has come out and publicly
about changing the race of a person used in a promotional image.
The picture in question shows three businesspeople, one black, one Asian and one white for a pitch of Microsoft’s business productivity software. The same image on Microsoft’s Polish site had a white person’s head placed over the black man’s, but the hand remained its original color.
“We are looking into the details of this situation. We apologize and are in the process of pulling down the image,” said a Microsoft representative.
