Skip to comments.‘Racist police’ claim mars Obama holiday in Spain

As Michelle Obama takes her daughter Sasha to Marbella for a mini-break, the US State Department has been forced to disown travel advice it issued warning that African-American tourists could be targeted by racist Spanish policemen . . .
The advice page said two African-American US government employees have "recently" been "questioned by police in Barcelona for no apparent reason". One was detained, the page said, and "suffered physical injuries in the process".
However, the page now carries no such warning the offending paragraph has presumably been removed by an embarrassed State Department after press reports drew it to their attention. The original version of the page can still be seen here, thanks to Google's cache, while the newly-revised version is here . . .
Contacted by Spanish daily El Pais, the US embassy in Madrid played down the advice. It said the Barcelona incident had "happened a long time ago" (though the advice page said "recently") . . .
"We are in no way suggesting that Spanish police are racist," an embassy spokesperson added. "This was an isolated incident." . . .

It was The Moops.
That is so funny on so many levels.
I wish someone could send the original page to Manchelle. think she’d call Spain a mean country?
Oh, good grief it’s not like she’s walking around alone. Quite the contrary.
The list, ping
They are victims everywhere they go.
Lets all feel sorry for them and not expect anything from them.
The Spanish police act stupidly.
Probably cut themselves taking out their race card.
Maybe it’s for another Summit de Cerveza!!
Another article about the luxury trip by Michelle and “old friends” to Spain.
American MSM? - crickets!
How racist are they?
Answers...so racist they decided the KKK wasn't wearing white enough sheets...
...so racist they won't eat black-eyed peas...
...so racist they refuse to grow watermelons...
All pure sarcasm, of course. The charge of racism has become so absurd, so twisted, so clearly a tool for manipulation and intimidation that it deserves ridicule - as do those who continue to use the term.
How many vacations do these people need?
Maybe Obama can get Holder to sue them.
I don’t care what color you are, you don’t want to mess with the Guardia Civil.
thanks America for the 50 billion that your President Barack Obama sent us.Take your money from you and your Family and give it to the WORLD we needs more of your money
La Stupido 50 acto.
The bit about Spaniards being "racists" is pretty funny given how RACIST Michelle Obama is.
Anyone who would subject two small children to the racist and poisonous hatred of Jeremiah Wright has very little grounds to shout "racist" at anyone.
Wow, the State Dept. is finding fake hate crimes around the world.
African -Americans should vacation in the Darfur if they REALLY want to see racism.
But we decided to post an all-points bulletin about it, anyway.
