black head replaced by white head - but the hands tell the story

Oh dear - can't sell computers in poland with a black man in the photo - oh dear

"Microsoft is under fire for digitally editing a publicity photo to remove a black man.

Photos posted online appear to show two versions of a Microsoft website, one from the US and one from Poland.

In the US version, a black man is seated in the middle of the photo. In the Polish version, the black man's head has been replaced with a white man's.

However, the colour of the man's hands was unchanged.

Microsoft told British newspaper The Sun it had removed the image and was investigating. The company apologised for the mistake. "

Which mistake microsoft?
