Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionCartoon shows Leonid Brezhnev dressed as a cave man with a large club. General Mao Zedong stands beside him, he has just picked up a tall, thin black man in a shirt and tie. [Unclear if the black man is a specific person or an allegory for African nations.]

[Likely that cartoon relates to Sino-Soviet competition for influence in Africa. The PRC in particular felt that they had an advantage in this arean due to the multi-racial, multiethnic emphasis of Maosim.]
