(I have decided to write a new post instead of simply modifying my previous one, so that the thread will show up as 'unread' in your feed and you will notice my reply.)

You are not really arguing that Ukrainian prioritization of "white" refugees is not racist; you are arguing that Ukrainian racism should be excused because it might help us strategically. It should not. Otherwise, next you will be arguing that the chicken /fish/etc. factory owners should be excused because their meat/eggs after being eaten might increase the chances of our non-vegan enemies getting cancer sooner and thus dying sooner.

In effect, what you're getting at is that once we start tolerating evil, speculating that it will benefit us in the long run, we will eventually lose our will to fight evil at all, potentially allowing for infinite evil to be committed, correct? To that extent I agree with you and stand corrected accordingly.

That being said, as for the topic itself, I'm still not buying the racism (as in pro-"white)-angle. There are heaps of non-"whites" in Ukraine besides the ethnic groups that have reported discrimination, which, as far as I know, have not reported discrimination (Crimean Tatars, Chechens, Georgians, Azeris, Armenians, Uzbeks, Koreans etc.). Surely, at least some of them will have fled as well, using the same routes and border checkpoints the non-"whites" that have reported discrimination were using.

Until I see evidence that these non-"whites" were similarly discriminated against, I will treat it as a case of ethnic stereotyping against some non-"whites", but not against other non-"whites", thus not a consistently pro-"white" policy.
