In my opinion, and knowing the Spanish culture/psychi, it's innocent. How it comes acrosss...well that may be a diffrent story.

Perspective is reality.

so you are considering that the spanish bball team did this to show they connect with the Chinese in a positive way, but not to reinforce racism? I suppose the reason for their official apology was for miscommunication, rather than their action.

Im surprised you're not poisoned by now from all the bullsh1t you've been eating.

16 adults and no one knew this wasn't the gesture Chinese people used to convey warmth?

Not racist, but not in good taste either.
