Different Spanish Team -- Same Racism

8/15/2008 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Not to be outdone by the Spanish national Olympic basketball team, the Spanish women's tennis team pulled the same offensive pose that's apparently sweeping their nation. Ay dios mio!

This racy pic was taken during preparation for their Federation Cup match against China back in April.

The photo still remains on the team's website with the attached caption: "Estamos preparados para China", which translates to, "We are prepared for China." Yeah, preparing for the backlash!

hmm...I'm Chinese and my eyes don't slant at all. In fact, they are
really round. I don't even look like the average Chinese person, and
I'm not mixed.. I heard about those Spanish monkey chant stuff from
yahoo answers. Seeing these pictures and reading the comments...
reminds of the Spanish guy in Barcelona from America's Next Top Model
who told the black competitor that he does not like kissing black
women. Never thought that people making slanted eyes could be so
offensive until these pictures came along.

Brazilians are not like the rest of you Hispanics, there history, culture are not at all Spanish. The people of brasil are of European and African extraction.

What do you expect from the trashiest country in European. These are the same morons who tried to exterminate the Indians of South & North America.

I feel special. Spain hates the whole world except for itself. I'm glad they chose to showcase their hate towards China and not anyone else. : )

I bet they won't think it's so funny the next time they get BOMBED and the rest of the world turns a blind eye to their pain. This kind of behavior should not be excepted in this day and age. SHAME ON SPAIN

wtf    

Mi ingles es pesimo asi que voy a decirlo en español. El que vea un gesto racista en esta foto tiene un serio problema mental, es mas, deberia ir al psicologo y hacerselo mirar.Ya veo que nadie ha querido comentar la foto de los americanos en Japon, eso si que fue ofensivo y los japoneses exigieron una rectificacion que no se hizo. Parece mentira que eso lo diga el pueblo americano , que tiene mucho que callar, que le pregunten sino a los nativos americanos, a los afroamericanos, o a los latinos que siguen siendo pisoteados y despreciados por muchos de ellos. Un pais en el que aun existe el ku klux klan deberia pensarselo mejor antes de decir nada sobre otro pais del que no sabe ni donde esta.

Most of the comments of this page are very racist about spanish people

You Americans are just ABSURD. It was you who had slaves (guess who the racists are????). Can you call such a pic a racist one, while you are afraid to say black and call a person born and bred in the US an "African" American??? African WHAT???? Say black, and get over that, dude. You're absuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurd.

I would expect nothing less from a country that erased entire cultures in North and South America. Systematically killing, enslaving, raping the Native Americans out of extinction to feed their greed and lust for gold.

Isn't like 50% of Spain on welfare? They're probably just upset that their country is no longer of any relevance in international politics or economics.

wtf    

"killing, enslaving, raping the Native Americans" are you talking about your own country? the USA
"their country is no longer of any relevance in international politics or economics." The United States are the most hated country in the world and his relevance is based in destroy and kill people in a ilegal war.
Why dont you look in your country before to criticize another country ?
Seguro que ni siquiera sabes donde esta España , que poca verguenza de tia.
