My heart breaks! Why are Black people so much hated everywhere?
I woke up to the hashtag #africansinukraine trending on social media and right now it is difficult not to rage at the world, at racism and how sad this all is. And they say White Supremacy is a thing of the past!
This makes me wonder; if we ever had a world crisis where people had to be rescued, I wouldn’t be surprised if the sign “No Blacks until all White people are safe” is openly displayed and a Policy to that effect openly implemented.
We say Never Again then things like this happen and we know yes, it can happen again. The true test of character and allyship is not when we are comfortable but when we are in a difficult situation.
Is it any surprise we don’t read about these things on the news, no mainstream media coverage? If not for social media, many would deny that such is happening right now. I despair for humanity. In fact, I am close to giving up on humans. What a sad world we live in.
“Is it any surprise we don’t read about these things on the news, no mainstream media coverage?”
It was reported on this morning’s CBC news.
I am furious and disgusted, but thank you for bring this appalling racism to my attention.
Oh and I predict the refugees we (the UK) accept from the Ukraine, with our oh so generous “well they still have to meet our standard visa requirements, but we are working through the night to process more applications so aren’t we wonderful” slug excrement, will all be white.

I saw something about this elsewhere, thought it should be covered on FtB, and drop by here and lo! and behold! you’re already all over it.
Thank you, Yemmy.

I have no problems believing this is for real. However there is one layer to this: Among Russian racist stereotypes of Ukrainians is that Ukrainians are especially racist (in addition to being addicted to cured (salted) pork fatback (сало) and being country bumpkins).
*This doesn’t excuse any racism by anybody*. What’s wrong is wrong, I’m not defending the indefensible. Even on a pure tactical level Ukrainians shouldn’t give Russians (who are hardly less racist actually, but their propagandists use any edge they have) any factual basis for their propaganda.
Thank you for bringing this up!
A friend just linked to this video, the patronizing and racist way the corporate media is reporting events. It’s jaw droppingly bad.
“It’s only supposed to happen *there*!” is not a well thought out message.
