A black immigrant asks Lithuanian natives to help him translate comments posted to his Facebook page

A social experiment in Lithuania is going viral for the emotion it is stirring. In the video several actors arrive for a commercial audition. What they don’t know is that the audition has already started.

In the waiting area is a Black man who, as he says, has only been in Lithuania for two weeks. Because he doesn’t yet know the language, he asks for help translating a Facebook comment that happens to be extremely vile.

How the people respond to the man’s difficult request is very moving.

I get the joke, but it’s actually a distraction from the message Obama supporters need to be spreading right now.

This kind of open racism would have been blasted if an “elect whitey” message had been on display at the RNC. Just saying.
