This is a question Political Correctness Gone Mad

Freddy Woo writes: "I once worked on an animation to help highlight the issues homeless people face in winter. The client was happy with the work, then a note came back that the ethnic mix of the characters were wrong. These were cartoon characters. They weren't meant to be ethnically anything, but we were forced to make one of them brown, at the cost of about 10k to the charity. This is how your donations are spent. Wisely as you can see."

How has PC affected you? (Please add your own tales - not five-year-old news stories cut-and-pasted from other websites)

Back in sixth form
Here I was, sitting in the School Library trying to get some coursework done for the following lesson, and a bunch of lower set year eights sit on the computers around me.

Their teacher makes them open google earth and they start examining the maps of africa- they're being noisy but oh well, they're thirteen for christsakes.

Zoomed in on the Central African Republic the young blonde teacher asks them "and what continent are we looking at?"


came the serious replies. I sink my head into my hands. The teacher comes over to the boy next to me-

"Well where do you think the CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC is then, billy?"

"Asia, miss?"

"the central AFRICAN republic? In Asia?"

"Erm, I dunno...."

Suddenly there came a sound of shock from a few desks away-

"Miss, Miss!" a little creature said, waving her hand about.

"This Country is WELL racist!"

she says, pointing to Niger.

I remember having (and winning) an argument with someone in the pub who was convinced that Niger was pronounced with a hard g as opposed to the soft 'j' sound. I also avoided a potential glassing from a rather large Jamaican gentleman, who was sat opposite and was convinced that my opponent in the debate was trying to be racist, and wasn't actually just thick as pig shit.
