    Ultimately we'd like the product to marketable in both areas. It makes the joke funnier.


    Actually, in my hometown there is this novelty shop that sells Lenin 'altoids'. It comes in a can with a picture of his head on it.

    What's racist about that?

    Not to mention deep-rooted anti-Semitism in both Russia and Europe. Many people on the left (at least in the US) make the mistake of thinking that racism is mainly a disease of white Americans, but itís a condition of human nature.
    Nobody here gives a shit about Jews anymore, I'm afraid. The closest you can get to anti-semitism is, not being on the side of Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian war, but it's far from stemming from a dislike of Jews per se.

    Ask some of your North African immigrants how they feel about it.

    Really? Because I wasnít just talking about something I read someplace, though Iíve read about this too. Iíve known plenty of European and Russian immigrants, guys Iíve worked with. Not flaming neo-Nazis but average people, some of them intellectual types. I recall more than a few who spent time on the Internet researching Jewish conspiracy theories, who believed the Holocaust was a hoax and all this other nonsense to validate their anti-Semitism. The n-word is also used pretty freely by some of them.

    Donald Brashear is a black NHL player, and he went to Russia to play in the KHL (their top league) during the NHL lockout in 2004-05. Opposing team's fans would regularly wear gorilla masks and throw bananas at him.
