Canada's Central Bank has apologised for removing a depiction of a female Asian scientist from its 100-dollar banknotes, and replacing it with a female caucasian after 'focus groups' complained about stereotyping... like scientists are synonymous with the Far East or something. Surreal...
“Some believe that it presents a stereotype of Asians excelling in technology and/or the sciences. Others feel that an Asian should not be the only ethnicity represented on the banknotes. Other ethnicities should also be shown.”
I mean who cares about depictions... as long as the serial-numbers are valid. Sheeesh." Take Badlaw's body out to the gold-mine 'n toss it down a shaft. "

Asians DO excel in science and technology. I saw a picture of the graduating class from UF for the Dept. of Engineering and I'd say at least 80% of them were Asian. Gee, is that a racist statement?

This is a case were people are simply over thinking things to try and be PC." Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people's brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead." Arundhati Roy
