From Politic365 June 15, 2012:
A funny thing happened on the RNCLatino.com site this week.
If you didn’t notice, a stock photo of Asian children was used to promote the very Latino site. The photos showed up next to the phrase: “Nuestra comunidad y tu voz” (Our community and your voice). Once people started noticing, the photo has since been taken down. But, there’s a cached version here:
Still, the whole episode seems reminiscent of the 2010 snafu by Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle, who said Latino students looked Asian to her.
When asked about the incident, RNC spokeswoman Alexandra Franceschi sent an email response: “An outside vendor developed the site and it is being corrected immediately.” She didn’t respond to further questions, such as: Why was a stock photo (clearly marked with Asian tags) used instead of actual Latino children at RNC events? What “vendor” developed the site, and did this vendor develop any other sites for the RNC?
