Latvia probes ‘racist’ election ad showing black man with EU passport and lily-white woman

A political party in Latvia has come under fire after its official Facebook page posted a Nazi-related ad, which apparently aims to show the EU as a tribal black man and Latvia as a blond white woman nursing a black baby.

The scandal started on Sunday, when the Latvian Social Democratic Workers' Party (LSDSP) posted the controversial picture ahead of the October parliamentary election. In addition to the semi-naked couple the image shows the rainbow flag of LGBT pride, the national flag of Latvia in the background and a former logo of the national tax agency. A note above it said it showed Latvia if people didn’t vote for the LSDSP.
