@molotovinpeikko But why give the Russians the propaganda to work with??

It's just as dumb as how Jim Crow was something the Communists in the USSR often would point to as a way to dismiss criticism of the USSR. It was a total deflection from the problems within -- but why as Americans would we want to give such detractors easy propaganda to use against us??

This is the same thing as many of the Cold War dictatorships we propped up too. Why back the scumbags just because they were anti-soviet? Communism is a failed economic system and a failed ideology. Because we did that, it's easier to sell the concept that Western European countries are mere US puppets.
