Pretend diversity is way easier

One of these things is not like the other one…

Look about halfway down the left side of both pictures. Notice any difference between the original picture on the right and its final copy on the left?

In the summer of 2000, in a small room in the University of Wisconsin, the editors of the fall admissions brochure were frantically searching through every single photo ever taken on campus, desperately trying to find photographic evidence that black people went to their school.

Insert snarky comment about UW diversity here. I always wondered how every college brochure picture included such an eclectic mix of ethnicities.
