The U.S. Embassy again warned Americans of African and Asian descent to beware of violent neo-Nazi thugs after an African American Marine was beaten by a group of skinheads this weekend at a popular outdoor market. Moscow city police on Sunday arrested one of the assailants, who by chance was interviewed by a Russian television crew moments after the incident and bragged that he often beats black people on the city's streets.

So we learn from your article "Black Russian" that there is no racial discrimination in Russia, and I am sure that you hope that all your readers will come to the conclusion that America needs to become more liberal and more socialist.
