Now I have to cheer for the Chinese

Apparently no one on the Spanish basketball team thought that the above picture of the team posing “slit-eyed” for an advertisement before the games was in bad taste.  It’s really quite surprising to see such overt racism from a national team going into the Olympics.

So, given the fact that the Chinese are playing this team this evening in Beijing (tomorrow morning here in the States), I’m going to have to cheer for the Chinese team.  This type of racism, especially at a team-wide level, is simply not acceptable.
