Spanish Tennis Team Slant Eye Photo - It’s Not Just a Basketball Thing

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it just did. Following the outcry over a photo featuring Spain's basketball team posing with offensive "slant eyes" at this summer‘s olympics, it turns out the Spanish tennis team has posed in a similar photograph.

The AOL Fanhouse points out that The Spanish Tennis Federation's web site showed Spanish tennis players and coaches in the "slant-eyed" pose before their Federation Cup match against China in April. It carries the caption, "Estamos preparados para China," or "We prepare for China."

The most stunning thing about this photo controversy, at least from my own American perspective, is that the reaction in Spain has been almost universally, "How dare you suggest we're doing anything wrong here?"

The Spain basketball team controversial photo was shot for a Spanish ad in which members of the Spanish basketball team posed with Asian "slant eyes".
