The Spanish Olympic basketball teams and their racist team photo!

Published by at 8:04 pm under I Don't Get It,Jerks,Why?!?

I am not a fan of “political correctness” but come on, you would have to be a fucking IDIOT to pose for this photo without understanding why it’s offensive and racist. Don’t most people outgrow making “slanty eyes” around the 4th grade?

The part of this story that really confuses me is that this photo, and another identical photo of the women’s team, was used in an advertisement for one of the team’s sponsors. How dumb are the Spanish and how bad are their ads? I’m starting to think I could be the president of an advertising agency in Spain. I guess I always assumed they were cultured people who spent their days in white linen suits sipping sangria on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Think of how many people must have been involved with this ad and not a single person said “Esto es estúpido. Esto es una idea muy mala.”

Too bad Spain is currently making a bid for the 2016 Olympics. How’s that working out for you Spain?

    Holy. Crap.

    Racist idiots. How horrifying.

    Cambridge is covered in Spaniards (well, the GSD is) and I’m not gonna lie, they are not exactly a cultured bunch.

    Ha Ha! I found your post funny and your response to “you a douche” even funnier. You think “you a douche” is a Spaniard or just some white dude who thinks he’s down with the ethnics?

    To be quite honest, I didn’t find the photos very offensive and I’m Asian. The slanty eye gesture is actually a sign of affection in our country. We do it all the time. In fact, I was just at my parent’s house and my sister “slanty eyed” me. I felt really loved.

    I like how “you a douche” came back 6 hours later to check on the status of this blog, since clearly he has “sumtin productive to do in [his] free time instead of putting everyone else down”.

    Although I guess pointing out the hypocrisy of idiots is kinda mean and spiteful… ah, well.

    I don’t think he understood the irony that he spent several hours requesting me to do something better with my time other than complaining. I honestly miss “you a douche” desperately and hope he comes back. COME BACK, I NEED YOU!
