Astros’ Yuli Gurriel Apologizes After a Racist Gesture Aimed at Yu Darvish | NYT

Gurriel said he was aware that the word Chinito was offensive. “In Cuba we call everybody who is from Asia ‘Chino,’” he said through the interpreter. “We don’t call them Japanese. We call them Chino. Plus, I know in Japan that offends them. They don’t like that, but I didn’t mean to do it.”

Darvish, 31, initially said he was angry when he learned what Gurriel had done, but later issued a statement on his verified Twitter account asking people to forgive Gurriel.

Yu Darvish is taking the high road. Knowing now that Gurriel did what he did and said what he did meaning for it to be offensive to Darvish, I find it much harder to do the same.
