Finale 2009 came out last week. For those who don't know, this is a music writing software that comes out every year (like cars) so that teachers can have the latest versions for their students. Or something. My dad works for the company that makes it.

Anyway, Finale 2009 features, on the cover, an African American with a saxophone. This is also the first image one sees when the program starts up.

I bet you can see where this is going, but I'll continue.

The company got two complaints today (from southern America - where else?):
1. Someone complained that when they started up the program, they smelled fire and brimstone, and would like to know how to remove the devil from the program.
2. Someone asked if there's a way to get rid of the first image so that they don't have to see it every time the program starts.

I mean, if you really feel like being prejudiced, that's your own problem, but to use it for a public complaint? This is just sickening.

I expected this to go the opposite way. I thought people were going to say an African-American playing a sax is a racists stereotype. But this is even more stupid and ridiculous. I guess we're still in the freaken 1800s.

That's just sad that those people down there still act that way.
