Well, another magazine, another cover that is highly inclined towards racism, another hue and cry and another apology!

Well, another magazine, another cover that is highly inclined towards racism, another hue and cry and another apology!

That seems to have become the way of things lately.

The cover shown above is of their last week's issue, which has been criticized for its depiction of minorities.

The cover depicted minorities in a house, drowning in cash. The headline: "The Great American Housing Rebound: Flips. No-look bids. 300 percent returns. What could possibly go wrong?"

Bloomberg duly apologized, saying, "Our cover illustration last week got strong reactions, which we regret," Josh Tyrangiel, the magazine's editor, wrote in a statement sent toPOLITICO. "Our intention was not to incite or offend. If we had to do it over again we'd do it differently."

Recently, that has become a norm. There have been too many racist connotations in just about everything said, done or shown. Same goes for anything that can slip into the boundaries of political correctness. May be we are becoming too sensitive and reading a lot more than there is in many things?
