Spain's "Slanty-Eye" Insult

The Spanish men's Olympics basketball team strike a "slanty eye" pose just prior to the Beijing games. The photographed insult was included in Spain's leading sports daily Marca on behalf of a courier company.

BTW: Spain beat China in the men's competition in overtime today; while China edged Spain in the women's tournament Saturday. The Spanish men face the USA on Friday. I'm guessing that the Spanish will not show up in black-face.
