Obama's Economy

Laura Tyson, economic adviser, with Barack Obama (Getty Images).

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 (AFP/Voskhod handout/file).

Zeitgeist the Movie (addendum) explains the answer very clearly.
