Racist attacks against President Barack Obama are nothing new, especially where the Russians are concerned.
Earlier this week, for his 53rd birthday, The Moscow Student Initiative projected a laser light show onto the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, featuring Obama repeatedly inserting a banana into his mouth, with the words “Obama” and “happy birthday” alternating on the building.
This wasn’t the only racist birthday message directed at him.
Russians also hung this across from the embassy, which depicts “Three Wise Monkeys” that see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil:
Previously, United Russia party Irina Rodnina defended this shot she took at Obama, saying “Freedom of speech is freedom of speech! If you have issues it’s your problem!”
Russia’s not alone in the attacks.
In May, North Korea jumped on the racism bandwagon, suggesting that Obama “live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the breadcrumbs thrown by spectators.”
