Olympic controversies: Spanish photo sparks controversy

Players on Spain’s Olympic basketball team defended a photo in an ad showing the players using their fingers to apparently make their eyes look more Chinese.

The photo, which has been running as a newspaper spread in Spain since Friday, shows all 15 players making the gesture.

I personally think it was really insensitive and distasteful picture amounting to racial insult.
