Papers criticized for 'racist' Cologne covers
Two of Germany's leading news publications have been heavily criticized for using imagery described as 'disgustingly sexist and racist' to portray the Cologne sexual assaults.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), one of Germany's most respected liberal publications, apologized on Sunday for publishing a picture of a black arm reaching up between a pair of white female legs in its weekend edition.
The image was illustrating an article in which a psychologist claimed that for young Muslim men, every meeting with a woman is a highly sexualized encounter. The image could still be found illustrating the article on-line on Monday morning.
