What? They Pulled the $100 Bill?

Oh brother.

They pulled the new $100 bill from circulation because of complaints, that the woman looked 'too Asian'
and that it stereotypes the myth that Asians excel in technology. Now take a good look at this babe?
Do you see Asian eyes?  Do you see Asian women wearing this style of back flip hairdo?

 I can understand it if she was nude - then they would have a good reason to pull it.

Talk about hyper racial sensitivity.

Ok, where do they go now?

Is it racially wrong to have Sir Robert Borden looking so very Caucasian?  Do they put faces of all races lined up side by side across the bottom of bills, to be politically correct?  Perhaps to be racially all inclusive - they should touch up the Queen's portrait, so all Canadians can identify with her: a native headdress, a hockey stick in one hand and a chopstick in the other and sitting on a steel pan drum for good measure.
