Legos and Racism

The UN Commissioner for Human Rights has once again called into question why the US gives the UN most of it's operating budget.

The commission has created a poster using a Lego piece to bring attention to racism and the Danish Mohammad cartoons. Of course, Legos are made in Denmark and the Lego piece in the poster is supposed to point to one of the "different forms" racism can take.

In case you think using a Lego to symbolize racism isn't an attack by the UN on Denmark, you'll need to explain 1) why there is a version of the poster in Arabic and 2) why the UN Commission on Human Rights has now removed the poster completely from their website with no explanation.
