Republicans: Asians/Latinos what’s the difference?

Maybe this is why Mitt Romney is trailing Barack Obama by 43 points among Hispanic voters.

The Republican National Committe has set up a Spanish-language website designed to lure Hispanic voters. Unfortunately, in what has been called “an embarrassing display of racism”, the Republicans posted a photo of laughing children on the site. Why the controversy? NONE of the children are Hispanic. They’re Asian.

US News and World Report originally spotted the gaffe and pointed out that the stock Shuttercock photo that was used by the Republicans was labled “Thailand,” “Asia,” and “interracial.”
