Pope Karen thinks it's OK for war criminals to be "white":

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/nov/29/interview-pope-francis-fury-russia

Quote
In an interview with the Catholic magazine America published Monday, the pope said that soldiers from Buryatia, where Buddhism is a major religion, and the Muslim-majority Chechnya republic, were “the cruellest” while fighting in Ukraine.

“Generally, the cruellest are perhaps those who are of Russia but are not of the Russian tradition, such as the Chechens, the Buryats and so on,” he said.

As if someone like him would know.

Quote
Human rights groups and independent media organisations have documented overwhelming evidence of war crimes by Russian forces, but there has been no data to suggest that soldiers from national minorities fighting in Ukraine have behaved worse in Ukraine than ethnic Russian members.

But let's just presume it anyway! When in doubt, "whites" are always better than "non-whites"!

In asylum dispute, Austrian mayor takes down migrant tents
...
After a weeks-long conflict, St. Georgen Mayor Ferdinand Aigner had more than a dozen tents removed that were set up in his village last month.
...
the U.N. refugee agency got involved, urging the federal government and St. Georgen to find a compromise so the migrants will not end up homeless during the winter cold.
...
“If every municipality would take a heart and create a few places, the problem would quickly be solved,” Pinter said.

However, Aigner doesn't see it this way.

“It’s just too many,” he said, referring to the number of the asylum-seekers his village is supposed to shelter.
...
It was not immediately clear how Austria's federal government would react to the dismantling of the tents, but as of late Monday, the interior ministry had not filed an appeal in court to keep the tents in place. The more than 100 asylum-seekers living in the tents were distributed to other shelters.

Are you ready for the punchline?

Let me preface this by saying there is nothing romantic about this restaurant. It looks like this:



With that said:

Quote
One if by Land, Two if by Sea, considered one of the most romantic restaurants in the world, is now under fire after a TikTok user accused the establishment of racially discriminating "against non-white people — particularly Asians."

TikTok user Annie (@rokug4n) called out One if by Land, Two if by Sea in a recent post. She says in her video that she and her boyfriend recently had a date at the restaurant and were seated on the second floor, or mezzanine. During their meal, she noticed that most of the people around them were purportedly Asian.

“I'm going to preface this by saying, I have no issue dining with other Asian people, other Chinese people, I don’t care. What I do care about, and have an issue with, is people of color being separated from white people by white people in higher-end establishments,” she says.

Annie then highlights the difference in ambiance between that of the first floor and that of the mezzanine, pointing out that the first floor, where the white diners are purportedly usually seated, has chandeliers, high ceilings, huge windows, mosaics and plenty of natural lighting. She claims that the second floor, which has two small windows, is not as well lit. It also does not have a piano and a bar.

“The unfortunate truth is that racial discrimination in higher-end spaces is not a new phenomenon,” she says. “What is unfortunate is that One if by Land, Two if by Sea has been racially discriminatory for so long.”

Annie also points out that “so many Asian foodies are paying hundreds of dollars to this restaurant and getting racially discriminated against.”

All I will say is that the restaurant's ethics matches its aesthetics.

Also, a useful comment points out a fundamental asymmetry:

Quote
As a white guy living in China, managers love to seat me by a window so that passersby will think that the restaurant is high-class and high quality

Other woke comments:

whit folks are most luckiest in non whit places.  They are looked upon as gods , beauty in itself and even get random invites for ads and posters so companies can show off their products are good with westerners who value beauty and quality.  now in a white country i have to beg to get my kid photographed in a community or school event. even if schools have 20-30% smart ass as.an kids , its the whit kids who get showcased as though they are high quality humans ..

Quote
Because Europe has granted Ukrainians automatic residency and visas, Ukrainians are at the front of the line for housing and refugee services.
...
The disparities have left activists like David Schmidtke, spokesman of the Saxony Refugee Council in Dresden, denouncing what they call a two-tier system that disadvantages and discriminates against asylum seekers from outside Ukraine.

“This is institutional racism,” he said. “There are two classes of refugees.”

In Germany and across the rest of the European Union, officials say the sudden scale of the Ukrainian arrivals has left the bloc with little choice but to offer automatic recognition and, therefore, direct access to services for which other asylum seekers often wait months and years.

If the aim is purely to clear the backlog, then why not in the same decision offer automatic recognition to the earlier arrivals also? We all know why not.

Quote
While Ukrainians are far and away the majority of new refugees, some politicians have blamed the strains on the system on asylum seekers from Syria, Afghanistan and other places outside Europe.

Arithmetic not required.

Quote
Ethnic minority troops are said to be dying in greater numbers than their Slav compatriots in the so-called ‘special military operation’.
...
According to open source researchers, soldiers with roots in poorer regions such as Buryatia and Dagestan are disproportionately represented among Russian casualties in Ukraine.
...
“Buryatia, like the other ethnic republics, is governed by the colonial policies of Moscow,” Maladaeva continued.
...
“In Russia, the level of chauvinism is very high,” Chechen lawyer and human rights defender Abubakar Yangulbaev told Al Jazeera. “I even call it the ‘Racist Federation’, as it perfectly reflects the inner essence of the state both among the Russian people and among the officials.”
...
As late as last year, landlords in Russia were still able to list their lettings online as “for Slavs only”.

“I think every non-Russian has come across this; we’re always experiencing discrimination,” said Maladaeva. “Once my mother forgot her passport and the cops held her for five hours since they wouldn’t believe she was a Russian citizen.

“We lived in St Petersburg where I took part in a beauty contest, and on social media, they kept writing I should have my head stuck down the toilet, and, ‘Why is a Buryat representing Peter anyway?’”

Family says fatal shooting case shows ‘stand your ground’ defense doesn’t work for Black men

William “Marc” Wilson was recently convicted of involuntary manslaughter for a shooting that he says was in self-defense against a racist attack on a Georgia highway, and his family and lawyers say the case reveals a racial double standard for “stand your ground” laws.

“If you put me in Marc’s shoes, there’s no way that I would've been prosecuted,” Wilson’s cousin, Chance Pridgen, who is white, told Yahoo News. “Odds are I would've been given a medal — probably gotten a parade in my name. It’s unreal how he was treated just because he’s a little bit more tan than I am.”
...
The case against Wilson was closely watched by legal experts and civil rights advocates who have long criticized the use of “stand your ground” laws as racist. Perhaps the most high-profile case was the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teen. George Zimmerman, who killed Martin, successfully argued that the use of force was justified under Florida’s self-defense laws.

Studies have found a significant racial disparity in whether homicides are deemed justified based on the race of the shooter and the person shot. A 2020 study by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights said​​ "white-on-black homicides have justifiable findings 33 percentage points more often than black-on-white homicides,” with “stand your ground” laws exacerbating that disparity.

“This case, among so many others, highlights the urgency in why Georgia must address the racial disparity in Stand Your Ground claims,” James Woodall, a public policy associate with the Southern Center for Human Rights, said in a statement to Yahoo News. “It is troubling that people continue to have to defend themselves against violent behavior, only to be further criminalized by an unjust legal system.”
...
CJ Jenkins, an organizer and JustGeorgia coalition member who has been working as a liaison between the Statesboro community and Wilson’s legal team, says the facts of the case were on the defendant’s side.

“[The teens] admitted to hiding evidence. They admitted to being intoxicated,” Jenkins told Yahoo News.

Maybe it's because Wilson didn't do this in court?

It's OK for cancer patients to be "white":

https://us.yahoo.com/news/asian-black-patients-england-wait-220854449.html

Quote
Asian and Black patients in England wait longer for cancer diagnoses than white patients, study finds
...
Based on the NHS data review conducted by the University of Exeter and The Guardian, minority ethnic patients had to wait an extra six weeks to get diagnosed.
...
For esophagogastric cancers, it took white people 53 days to get a diagnosis while Asians waited 100 days, which is six weeks longer.

For myeloma, the median wait time for white people was 93 days, but for Black people, the wait time was 127 days, which is over a month longer.

Meanwhile, the average longest waiting time for the diagnosis of breast cancer in white women was 43 days, compared to 56 days for Asian women and 73 days for Black women.

A delay in diagnosis could significantly impact a patient’s chances of survival as one may contend with limited availability of treatments or lessened effectiveness of delayed treatment.

According to University of Exeter researcher Tanimola Martins, their findings “help explain” why ethnic minorities “have poorer outcomes for some cancers
and report worse experiences of healthcare.”
...
“extended wait times may cause additional stress and anxiety for ethnic minority patients.”
...
“These findings are deeply worrying, with potential life-altering consequences for the health of black and Asian people,”

LONDON (Reuters) - The World Health Organization's director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has suggested that racism is behind a lack of international attention being paid to the plight of civilians in Ethiopia's war-shattered Tigray region.

Calling it the "worst humanitarian crisis in the world", with 6 million people unable to access basic services, Tedros questioned in an emotional appeal why the situation is not getting the same attention as the Ukraine conflict.

"Maybe the reason is the colour of the skin of the people," Tedros, who is from Tigray, told a virtual media briefing on Wednesday.

The real question is also :

For what the United Nations and it's branch of it, the World Health Organization to be created?

White Socialite Hacked Her Mother to Death—and Tried to Blame a Black Man
...
On Nov. 17, 1948, police were called to the home of society matron Idella Thompson on tony Deer Creek Drive in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. The house was quiet, but as they made their way further inside, they discovered a grim scene.

Idella was lying dead in her bathroom, which was “as bloody as could be,” Leland police chief Frank P. Aldridge said. Next to her lay a pair of pruning shears, the kind home gardeners everywhere use to cut roses and manicure their flower beds. It was the obvious weapon responsible for over 150 small, bloody cuts that covered Idella’s body.
...
But perhaps even more surprising than the murder is what the town did about it.
...
From the moment police arrived on the scene, the investigation was a mess, as can happen in a small town where everyone has a personal relationship with nearly everyone else and many of the players involved are related. As word quickly spread about what had happened—thanks in no small part to the loud sirens and nosy switchboard operator—the white members of Leland began to converge on the scene, which had not been properly secured.

The door was left wide open and too many people were allowed to walk around inside, tracking blood around the house. The investigators took Ruth’s word for what had happened and saw nothing wrong with allowing the messy crime scene to be cleaned up soon after. They also allowed Ruth to return to her home just a few doors down without thoroughly questioning her. It was only later that they realized it might have been useful to preserve her bloody clothes, now washed clean of any evidence.

What Ruth told them before she took to her bed was that a Black man she didn’t recognize had come into the house and attacked her mother.
Idella was known to be “right difficult” and very protective of the pecans that grew in her backyard. Ruth said maybe what happened was Idella started going off on the man for picking her pecans, something that happened regularly. Maybe Idella grabbed the pruning shears Ruth had left behind earlier that day, and the man in an act of self-defense-turned-rage grabbed the “snips” from her and began to attack.

At her words, a posse of white men on horseback rode into the Black part of town to try to find a man fitting Ruth’s description. Before the night was over, a few suspects had been rounded up for questioning, but they were all released the next day. It was pretty clear even then that no one matching Ruth’s description was going to be found. One woman remembers her father coming home from the search party and immediately saying, “There’s no Negro. It’s somebody in the family.”
...
On Jan. 8, 1949, Ruth was taken into custody.

You think the ethnonepotism is over? Not a chance:

Quote
Ruth was found guilty of first degree murder.
...
she received the lightest punishment possible for the charge: life in prison rather than death by the electric chair.

Ruth would go on to serve only six years
and through her husband’s never-ending campaigning and political maneuvering, she would eventually not just get out of prison but also receive a pardon.
...
“I just came to think of her as a special character. Really smart. Way too smart,” Lowry says. “I’ve known a number of women like that who come from the era before mine. And I think when you look at Ruth lying—well, not lying but saying, ‘Don’t tell John’ [about her debts]—she wants to be in charge. She wants to have her own life.

If you ask me, that she tried to pin the murder on a "non-white" was probably the action she took that convinced the authorities to go lightly on her.

Last month, the Greek tourism minister Vasilis Kikilias invited Germans to spend winter in Greece, where the season is mild.

"For autumn and winter, it would be a great pleasure for us Greeks to welcome German pensioners who want to experience a 'Mediterranean winter' with Greek hospitality, mild weather, and high-quality services," he told Germany's Bild newspaper.

This is the same Greece which keeps saying it cannot host refugees because it supposedly doesn't even have enough resources to support its own population.....

Jewish volunteers bond with Ukrainian kids at summer camp
...
After Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, people across Poland sprang into action to welcome and help refugees from the neighboring country. Poland has accepted more of the war's refugees than any other nation.

Local and international Jewish organizations also wasted no time in trying to meet the most urgent needs: to house and feed the Ukrainians, most of whom are women and children.

With the war about to enter its sixth month, the camp at the Lauder Morasha School in Warsaw reflects the type of programming being developed to meet the changing needs of refugees. Many Ukrainians realize they won’t be able to go home soon, or perhaps ever, said Helise Lieberman, the director of the Taube Center for Jewish Life and Learning.

Mornings were devoted to Polish, English and math lessons so the children will be in a stronger position to adapt to school. Many of the Ukrainian kids who arrived in Poland since February finished the Ukrainian academic year remotely but will be entering Polish schools in September.

Campers spent afternoons doing arts and crafts, playing sports and making excursions to city museums and parks. About a third of the 90 children who attended the camp are Jewish, according to Marta Saracyn, the head of the Jewish Community Center of Warsaw.
...
The Taube Center and the Jewish Community Center of Warsaw organized the camp in conjunction with the Jewish Federations of North America, the Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Joint Distribution Committee.

The Jewish Federations of North America recruited nearly 90 Russian-speaking educators and rabbinic leaders to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland and Hungary, and 10 helped out at the Warsaw camp, said Hannah Miller, who runs the volunteer program.

The 10 camp volunteers are Russian-speaking immigrants who left the Soviet Union decades ago, or the children of Russian Jewish immigrants. Only a couple spoke Ukrainian, so they mostly spoke to the children in Russian, which is also widely used in much of Ukraine.

It's OK for workers to be "white":

https://us.yahoo.com/finance/news/exodus-ukrainian-workers-hits-europes-121105593.html

Quote
GORZOW WIELKOPOLSKI, Poland (Reuters) - Construction sites, factory assembly lines and warehouses across central Europe are scrambling to fill vacancies after tens of thousands of Ukrainian men left their blue-collar jobs to return home after Russia invaded their country.

Ukrainian workers had flocked to central Europe in the past decade - drawn by higher wages and aided by an easing of visa requirements - filling jobs that weren't highly paid enough for local workers in construction, the automotive sector, and heavy industry.
...
the departure of Ukrainian workers was leading to rising costs and delays in manufacturing orders and construction work.
...
"Many companies are looking for employees on a massive scale at various construction sites due to large outflows," he told Reuters.
...
Some companies are bumping up salary offers to attract replacement workers, seeking to lure local workers and stave off competing firms for the limited number of Ukrainians.

"We're searching for Ukrainian workers on the market, offering more money," said Maciej Jeczmyk, chief executive of Poland-based manufacturer InBet, which makes prefabricated materials for construction. "We are adapting almost every week."


Ready for the punchline?

Quote
"The problem is that the number of workers brought from these other countries is not high enough to fill vacancies," said Marcos Segador Arrebola, the chief executive of recruiter GI Group Poland.

We all know why not.
