Also, Kons0011: That is the magazine cover on the left and the original picture on the right. . . The guy was added in. Thanks for being completely wrong though. O_o

Fail. It`s the OTHER WAY AROUND, hence the finished cover look on the left. Wisconsin wanted to promote diversity (bad shop anyways though).

THIS STORY IS FALSE: The first picture is the ACTUAL magazine cover. They ADDED the African American man to the cover, not the other way around.

I think that`s the point IRockYeah. They didn`t have any black people in the picture so they added the black guy`s face to try to be politically correct (if that makes sense).

I lived in Wisconsin for two years, and I now go to one of the campuses (not Madison). I can`t say the same for the whole state, but where I lived, I think about 80% of the people living there were white, and... there are a lot of Native Americans in the state as well. But in the first few months or so I lived there, I didn`t see any African Americans. Once I started school, I noticed that it`s not as diverse as where I come from. Mostly white, but I`ve seen quite a few African Americans...

My 6th form did something similar, our prospectus had one black boy, one asian girl and a white boy and girl.

They did it so it looks more multi cultural. And before anyone says whats wrong with putting two on the cover, the answer is that there was only 3 ethnic kids out of the 200-300 at the 6th form with me being the other, in fact i felt a little left out :(

Actually I *believe* the photos are reversed..they placed the image of a young black man in the photo that before DIDN`T have one so they could sell the school a little better.

This happens all the time with colleges. Why`s it so hard to get a picture of college with an blackfrican american in it? Maybe we need to quit wasting money photoshopping them in and figure THAT out, lol.

Hey! What a perfect metaphor for our country on this matter: Faking it to hide the problem and as a result, nothing is changing! How true...

I like how they say, they wanted to show their racial diversity, but couldn`t find a "suitable" photo. Which means if they couldn`t find a single photo with a black person out of most probably thousands, then maybe they shouldn`t go around saying the school is racially diverse.

I love how they think that putting in a black person right on the side of the photo where you have to conciously look makes the whole photo better. I mean surely they could`ve just photographed another photo with more of an ethnic minority?

Actually I`d say that was AFTER and BEFORE; if it was the other way round, where did they get the face/mouth for the girl when they took the negro out? There`s nowhere to clone them from.

I`d say they looked at it and decided they needed a black person in the pic to appear NOT racist, so they added one.
