    in Canada a few months ago.  A preliminary version of a new currency design showed an oriental woman working at a microscope.  The final version showed a Caucasian woman.  After the entirely predictable hue and cry, it seemed that some people (presumably white) objected to an "ethnic" representing a "typical" Canadian.  Apparently it didn't occur to them that Caucasians were also an ethnic group.  Sigh!
