    Russian MP's Obama with banana picture sparks racism debate

    Irina Rodnina tweeted doctored photo of US leader with fruit – in country where black athletes are taunted with them regularly

    Very unfortunate. The least that Ms. Rodnina can do, is offer an unconditional apology. That picture was malafide, and in very poor taste.

    Unconditional apology? Do you think Russia is a banana republic?

    In poor taste? As opposed to going around the world committing genocide under the farce of freedom and national security when the truth is that you are on an Oil hoarding spree?

    And finally, malafide? lol :rofl:You don't really know what that word means, do you?
