There’s a post at Buzzfeed’s community-contributed section titled, get this, “29 Astounding Soviet Propaganda Images Promoting Racial Equality.” The subtitle is “Whoa. The Soviet Union got racial equality right before America?”

Here’s first paragraph:

Under its policy of internationalism, the Soviet Union tried to eliminate racism right from the beginning — aggressively instituting domestic and international policies of equality, humanism, and anti-colonialism.

What a great guy that Stalin was!

That old Soviet Union sure was way ahead of its time on human and civil rights, wasn’t it? And a Buzzfeed community contributor found the posters to prove it.

The Buzzfeed-style mockery brought about some hilarious ideas of what kinds of follow-up articles we may see while at the same time providing a valuable history lesson:

Hilarious, but at the same time a shame the mockery was necessary.
