And there's this little gem from Spain's soccer coach in 2005:



http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/foot...ls/4055395.stm

Not to mention Spain's 2008 men's and women's basketball teams both thought nothing of posing while doing the slant-eye. They're so culturally backwards that shit like that doesn't occur to them as being racist. Would love to see what happens the next time the Olympics is hosted somewhere in Africa. Break out the shoe polish! Blackface is soooo on!

So yeah, **** Spain.


its very funny when people from other countries say things like this, because by calling the spaniards racist, you are basically being the racist. Also, about the suposed genocides, its amusing because south american natives have survived much better to this day than their north american counterparts.

Also, about the "slant-eye" gesture, it doesnt occur to us that's a racist thing because it's not. It's like saying we think sexuality is something you have to be ashamed of if we talked openly about it. The fact that many nations are still hampered by this kind of taboos is the best example of how ahead of other countries we are in this matter.

About Luis Aragones, he's no racist. But in the first place, if he was it wuld be because thanks to the ever so helpful americans and europeans he received the fascist education we had to endure in spain for 40 years until ****ing Francisco Franco died peacefully in his bed because no one came to help spaniards and free us from this regime. No, americans would rather negotiate placing their air bases and shit in our country, and take advantage of the situation. Anyway, Aragones is no racist, has plenty of black friends, oriental or whatever race, he talks like that. If Thierry Henry was red haired or blonde he would have said "that blonde piece of shit". and he didnt say black piece of shit, thats the translation the sensationalist british press made, he said something more along the lines of "that nig.ga".

I loved their matchup in 2008. Looking forward to this one aswell.

Indigenous peoples....

The primary reason they died off was because of diseases brought from the old world which were foreign to these indigenous peoples and thus spread like wildfire through the populations.

THe encomienda systems you speak of were no more brutal than the Atlantic Slave trade set up by the British or the slave systems in American colonies, which persisted well into America's independence. Yes , your American freedom fighters were as if not more brutal than the Spaniards not bound by the Victorian moral codes of the time period.

Could be argued that the first ever antislvaery worker was Spanish (Bartolomoe de las Casas).

As For Aragones , the best and most important player on that team was of African descent, it's a figure of speech and it's translation is completely misconstrued.

Finally , you're an idiot who needs to look through the history of his own country before criticizing that of others.

Or how about the failure at the 2004 Olympics?
What about the failure at the 2006 FIBA World Championship?

Get out of here with that cocky attitude.

Yes, because everyone is as cocky as him... stop being a fool. As for their poor showing in the last few years, you mean like their gold medal in 2008? That poor showing? The United States has the most talented crop of basketball talent in the world and their supporters expect them to win, nothing wrong with that. Their cocky supporters are few and far between, most are respectful and excited about the prospect of another gold.

They were all very good players, but it was still a poorly constructed team... especially for international play.

This is probably the last Olympics for Pau Gasol and Juan Carlos Navarro, good to see them make it this far.

We deserve to get destroyed in the paint by having Chandler and a rookie be our best defensive bigs. I don't think it'll happen though.

If you think that the slant-eye pose was racist you are brainwashed.

Spain was the only true threat to Team USA. The Gasol Twin Towers could cause some problems for us.

Russia???
