The Serbian Women’s Volleyball Team Celebrated a Win With a Racist Picture That’s Gone Viral
The viral photo shows players pulling back the corners of their eyes, a move which has historically been used to mock people of Asian descent.
The team had just secured their spot in the 2018 FIVB Women’s World Championship which is being hosted by Japan. Presumably, the tournament’s location prompted them to strike the distasteful pose.
This is not the first time this has happened either. How and why do people keep doing this???

Apparently they forgot what happened back in 2008 with the Spanish Basketball Team in the Olympic.

Probably even worse than mocking another team…mocking your HOSTS. Yep, return a country's hospitality with a racial taunt.
