Adds you won't see in the USA

Oh, my!

This handout from Russian advertising agency Voskhod shows a smiling, cartoonish black man flashing the victory sign in front of the US capital building, along with the Russian slogan: "Everyone's talking about it: dark inside white!" Obama ice cream, anyone? Chocolate-vanilla ice cream is one of several Russian products being marketed using Obama even as critics call the ads racist

BTW, that is kind of the way race relations go in the rest of the world. No idea - don't get it. It's the 1930s out there in some places in more ways than one.
