Do they randomly test for substances that might give a person “chinese eyes”? Or is it just for “performance enhancing” drugs?

No blacks on the team? Doesn’t Spain have an African population? What’s with the sneakers. don’t they keep to one standard?

I rather thought it was a gesture of solidarity with the Chinese, but then, I failed my diversity training course.

It’s only offensive if white protestant American men do it.

Not to worry, only white Americans can be racists!

Looks like number 10 (front row on right) is using his middle finger and possibly sending a second message.

That’s the one - To be absolutely politically correct for this story, I suppose this kid should be of Chinese heritage, and his statement should be in English, Spanish and Mandarin:-)

This reminded me of a “I Love Lucy” episode where she disguised herself as an Oriental male.

Don’t worry too much. Our political correctness is our own problem, and other people outside the USA aren’t infected with the same disease. In China, they know they have small eyes, and they are perfectly proud to have them. In China they joke openly that white foreigners are fat and have big noses, while black foreigners have white teeth and big lips.

In their view, of course everyone looks different - and the point is?

Maybe the guy that thought up this picture was a moor-on.
