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)

I was making the exact same point
not a week ago.
Trying to explain to a "I'm not racist... but" friend that a great number of "these people" speak more than two languages, have given up their entire lives to come to the UK and seem to be cutting it quite fine as doctors, shopkeepers and the like. Somehow my friend couldn't see the logic in this and insisted they were stealing "our" jobs. Oh well, buy yourself a shop or put yourself through medical school then, problem solved. Better yet, go out to their country and see how you fair, you'd probably be dead within a week. Apologies for overuse of quotation marks.
