    Default President Barack Obama-themed Russian adverts trigger race row




    Obama-themed Russian adverts trigger race row - Europe - World - The Times of India


    MOSCOW: Obama ice cream, anyone? Chocolate-vanilla ice cream is one of several Russian products being marketed using America’s first black president, even as critics call the ads racist.

    Other ads featuring Barack Obama have promoted tanning salons and tooth-whitening services. But the creator of one Obama-themed ad - for ice cream bars which have a chocolate-flavoured centre embedded in a layer of vanilla - insisted that it was not racist and should be seen as a joke.
    (har de har har, I'm f**king laughing my ass off, idiot).

    The ad for Duet ice cream bars features a smiling, cartoonish black man flashing a V-for-Victory sign in front of the US Capitol, along with the Russian slogan: “Everyone’s talking about it: dark inside white!”
