Microsoft Office says I’m Caucasian…Come Again?


I was creating a presentation for a client and was looking for a graphic.  I click on INSERT, CLIP ART and search for ‘USERS’.  I got back a bunch of crappy art work and then some pretty decent stock photos.  OK.  I try ‘USER’ (singular, without the s).  A stock photo of a black man sitting next to a PC shows up.  hmmm…I try ‘ASIAN’—a bunch of drawings of dragons and then some decent stock photos of people.  OK.  I try ‘HISPANIC’ – a LOT of stock photos of family and soccer.  Then I try ‘CAUCASIAN’…and get this:


00400691[1]  and   00411847[1]  and   00400686[1]


Is Black the new White?  Did I miss the re-assigning of the terms??
