Danish toy maker Lego today said it felt wrongly accused of being racist by a UN anti-discrimination poster showing what looked like one of the company’s famous building blocks.
The poster reads “Racism takes many shapes” and shows the picture of a jigsaw puzzle next to a red brick.
It was launched by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
“We feel that the message of this poster can be interpreted as if we are a racist company,” Lego spokeswoman Charlotte Simonsen said in Copenhagen.

Doudre Diene says " Denmark is a xenophobic country, ruled by racist overlods, read it here The irony here is that Denmark is perhaps the most liberal, open, and least xenophobic country on that continent but why should facts get in the way of UN logic, eh? - Atlas

The Jihadis, following public humiliation on their own home ground, will need a means of proving that they’re still in the game, and Europe is vulnerable. It abuts directly against ancient Muslim homelands at several points, has a substantial and unintegrated Muslim population, has offered active Jihadis sanctuary within its borders, has pursued reckless immigration and security policies, and has supped with the Devil through its open support of Saddam Hussein (paid for with Iraqi oil funds) and Muslim terror organizations such as Al Fatah and Hamas.
Many observers believe it’s already too late, that Europe is one with Sumeria and Byzantium, that all that remains is the funeral procession. They point to the numbers of native births – below replacement level of 2.1 children per couple in almost every country—compared to those of Muslim immigrants, which are two to three times higher, and echo Bernard Lewis’s now-famous prediction, “Europe will be Muslim by the end of the century.”
Europe in also unfortunate in that its overall government, the European Union, has established itself, in defiance of the experience of the past century, as the kind of managerial superstate proven unfeasible just about everywhere else on earth.
