    AFP reported that Lavrov, in an interview on national television, pointed out that Russians “were pioneers of the movement promoting equal rights of people of any skin colour”.

    Moscow supported a worldwide trend “to get rid of racism” but he added that it should “not to switch to the other extreme which we saw during the BLM events and the aggression against white people, white US citizens”.

    “Hollywood is now also changing its rules so that everything reflects the diversity of modern society,” he said, but underscored that this was essentially “a form of censorship”. Lavrov accused the US of instigating a global “a cultural revolution” and warned that “they have colossal possibilities for it”.

    He said casting black actors in Shakespeare’s comedies was “absurd”. “Political correctness taken to the point of absurdity will not end well.”

    Recently, Damon Young, a black New York Times contributor wrote in The Root that “whiteness is a pandemic” and “the only way to stop it is to locate it, isolate it, extract it, and kill it”.

    “White supremacy is a virus that, like other viruses, will not die until there are no bodies left for it to infect,” according to Young. He still works for The Root and the New York Times has refused to condemn his anti-white vitriol.

    French historian Pierre-André Taguieff believes that such ideologies have sprung from a “hatred of the West, as a white civilization”. “The common agenda of these enemies of European civilization can be summed up in three words: decolonize, demasculate, de-Europeanize. Straight white male – that’s the culprit to condemn and the enemy to eliminate,” Taguieff explained.

      Lavrov is probably the most capable and influential senior diplomat in today’s world. His words are not only words of wisdom, but will get considerable resonance throughout the world, except possibily in the US, where the Biden administration, for purely political reasons, portrays Russia as adversary. And that is unfortunate, as it is in the US where this dangerous form of racially antipathy has the capability to do the most harm.

      Most of racism now is against white.

      No one wants to kill Whites! Stop dreaming up nonsense. The term “White” is not coterminous with “White Supremacy,” which has racism as it’s foundation. Works of Shakespeare can be played by anyone! When Shakespeare’s plays are re-enacted in non-White countries, like the ones colonized by Brittain, should they import Whites for the plays? Should those countries simply not act out Shakespeare’s plays because they are not Whites? Who should play Othello? Are actions of the characters in Shakespeare’s plays only particular to Whites? Did Shakespeare restrict his works to Whites? Works of art from non-Whites are hanging in museums across the White world and enjoyed by Whites! Should we say Whites should never enjoy those artworks because they were not created by Whites? No, because that would be absurd because the creator of those works of art never expected race to play a role! Lavrov is inveighing against racism but at the same time promoting it against non-Whites by his logic! As for the French, they should talk after they take their knees off the necks of their former colonies! Until then, they, like all those who love to perpetuate racism because they benefit from it should stop whining and sit down!
