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)

At my dad's work place they got a new shipment of something or other. It was quite poorly packed in one way or another and as a result causing the people working with it some grief.

"Bloody packing" utters one fellow struggling with the stuff. Just so happens one of the management-types was showing round someone of some importance who happens to be of Asian heritage, and she overhears. Only she didn't hear "packing", she heard "Paki". The man was out of a job within a couple of hours. No interview, no disciplinary, no opportunity whatsoever to plead his case. He was just gone.

Piss poor, ludicrously politically correct management there. Makes me wish I was still a union rep, I'd have a fucking field day with the spineless management... *growls*

This just didn't happen. Or if it did, matey would have a cast iron case for unfair dismissal.

PC is shit, but this sort of anecdotal bollocks is the stuff that feeds the like of the BNP scum.

What Inflateable said.
This whole bloody QOTW has been rife with this kind of anecdotal bollocks. And it's more a case of shit management than actual PC-gone-mad - as far as the Asian woman was concerned, he said "bloody paki".

wants to check his contract of employment,
if there is a defined disciplinary process which they have failed to follow he could have grounds for a tribunal which he should win, to be fair this could also be the case if he had said what they thought he said.
