Spain’s basketball team still insist they’re not racist
Offensive photo was “appropriate”, says Olympian
You folks out there in interwebland have been going batshit crazy for the story about Spain’s ‘Chinese wink’ team photo (300+ comments so far), and it seems most of you have been waiting for an apology from the Spaniards for a few days. Instead, however, they have been protesting their innocence – Spanish NBA star Jose Calderon wrote on his website:
Clearly, most of us are ‘absolutely confused’. The whole ‘some of my best friends are Asian’ excuse is a popular choice in the arsenal of every self-respecting closet racist. Rather than trying to justify it, how about an apology and a concession that this kind of thing isn’t tolerated in the rest of the world.
Now, can somebody help me down from my high horse, please?
