    Default Pasta con i neri

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8627335.stm

    An Australian publisher has had to pulp and reprint a cook-book after one recipe listed "salt and freshly ground black people" instead of black pepper.
    Penguin Group Australia had to reprint 7,000 copies of Pasta Bible last week, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported.
    The reprint cost A$20,000 ($18,000; 12,000), but stock in bookshops will not be recalled as it is "extremely hard" to do so, Penguin said.
    The recipe was for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto.
    "We're mortified that this has become an issue of any kind, and why anyone would be offended, we don't know," head of publishing Bob Sessions is quoted as saying by the Sydney newspaper.
    Penguin said almost every one of the more than 150 recipes in the book listed salt and freshly ground black pepper, but a misprint occurred on just one page.
    "When it comes to the proofreader, of course they should have picked it up, but proofreading a cook-book is an extremely difficult task. I find that quite forgivable," Mr Sessions said.
    If anyone complains about the "silly mistake", they will be given the new version, Penguin said.

    meh, I'd be surprised if many black people really cared about a little misprint like that.
    On the other hand, the dude might have just gotten way more than 12000 worth of publicity by making that gesture.

You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    "why anyone would be offended, we don't know"

    Hmm. I would agree they're stupid for being offended, but I know why they would be.

    I wonder how many black people who can read Italian actually saw this Australian cookbook before the news story?
