Default Toronto too PC?

Political Correctness is out of control in thi city. Not sure if you guys have seen this yet but, the "Toronto Fun guide" was released and has a horrible photoshop only cover to include a black man in the picture.

Seriously, get a picture of a toronto family, white black, midget, green I don't care.

Hell have two gay men with 2 adopted interracial kids in a wheelchair, seriously thoug...that photsop job is BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

roll your mouse over the picutre to see the new version

City digitally adds black guy to Fun Guide cover to make it more ?inclusive? - Posted Toronto

hilarous!

BTW. i read some of the comments. this is my favorite one.

"We want everyone to feel involved"...

and that's why we left the black guy out of the original photo shoot, only to do a really really bad job of inserting him into the group later. Nothing says harmony like photoshopped togetherness. Dr. King's dream is realized.

that is horrible.

lets get a black guy on the cover!!!!
in fact, lets get a creepy looking black guy and have him stare at his wife like he wants to do terrible things to her.
sigh...

im surprised they didnt put a caption on his shirt saying "I'm actually sitting in a wheelchair right now!!!"

this has nothing to do with toronto being too pc, and everything to do with the idiot of a marketing manager that put the whole thing together.

The original shot does a great job of speaking to diversity and inclusivity. If they were going to change it they should have used photoshop to add on a guy jerking off in a bathroom stall. Why must those guys always get left out and marginalized?

Nothing's really "bad" per se, it's more silliness than anything else. The fact whoever the marketing manager was thought he could create an illusion of "inclusiveness" by photo shopping a black dude in at the last minute is hilarious.

As a black man I think this is so funny. They should have left the original. I can't believe they did that. So stupid.

I bet the guy was all super-excited to be on the cover of the magazine...until he got a copy.

Agent: "Hey, I got you a magazine cover!"

Guy: "No way! What is it?!"

Agent: "Oh, just...hey, what's that over there!" *ZOOM!*
