Huffington Post's Generic 'Brown Couple' Picture [Race Baiting]

Iran, India, what's the difference? Sure, there's language, dominant religion, political system, history, yadda yadda. But if you're a Huffington Post photo editor, the countries are effectively interchangeable.

HuffPo first ran the above image in April on a syndicated story about how India's divorce rate is growing amid as legal and cultural norms become more modern.

It ran the same picture again yesterday with an except of a Time story on how economic problems are undermining marriage in Iran.

Neither of the originating websites used the image.

Where will this young, vaguely ethnic couple be found next? Our money is on Latin America.
