GOP Features Stock Photo Of Asian Children On Latino Outreach Site

RNClatinos.com, the Republican National Committee’s new website aimed at Latino voter outreach, uses a stock photograph of Asian children as its banner picture.

The stock photo found on Shutterstock is listed with tags including “asia, asian, cheeks, children, cool… interracial, japanese… thailand, together, trendy.” But the words ‘hispanic’ or ‘latino’ are nowhere on the page.

The GOP has been making a concerted effort to reach out to Latino voters this election season — but, by any account, this particular effort was less than successful.

UPDATE

GOP spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski tells TPM, “an outside vendor developed the site and it is being corrected immediately.”
