The worst we can do is to accept such framings without asking where they came from.

A rich dude with all the cookies tells the white dude with one cookie that the black dude with no cookie wants to steal his cookie

Careful mate, that foreigner wants your cookie.

Apparently this was drawn by the Australian Denis Lushch around December 2019
