Brookings (not Breitbart) "The Russian invasion of Ukraine shows racism has no boundaries"

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/how-we-rise/2022/03/03/the-russian-invasion-of-ukraine-shows-racism-has-no-boundaries/

There are many reports of Black people being refused at border crossings in favor of white Ukrainians, leaving them stuck at borders for days in brutal conditions. Ukraine stated they would first allow women and children on trains and transport out of the country to flee the Russian invasion. However, it seems they meant Ukrainian and European women and children. Videos show Black people being pushed off trains and Black drivers being reprimanded and stalled by Ukrainians as they try to flee. There are even reports of animals being allowed on trains before Africans.

And that's not even talking about the MSM bias

1. Africans and other racial/ethnic minorities are discriminated

against all over Europe. Europe is a pretty racist place, especially Eastern Europe.

2. This is true with respect to any minority, in any European country.

The European xenophobia even goes as far as Serbs and Moldovans being discriminated against in France, for example.

Africans are just easier to pick out because of their skin color.

3. Sadly,

the world is still run by the remnants of wealth amassed by phrenological Hapsburgs and their ilk.

Akhenaten still lives. Rome never fell. Feudalism still exists. The Empire never ended, a la Philip K. Dick.

It all just got transmogrified into modern Corporate Capitalism, where the "royals" (inherited wealth) keep trading in slaves and spices, only by other names, "rebranded" as other "products", such as "human capital".

Meanwhile, we plebiscites keep repeating Killing of the King rituals of mass bloodshed. But the Once and Future King never returns, because he never really was.

No one is in charge here, and nobody gets out alive.
