antiblackness, white supremacy, russian invasion of ukraine fallout 

- outpouring of support for ukraine that's been absent for equally violent crises
- widespread violence against Black refugees from the invasion
- germany kicking Afghan refugees out of housing for ukrainians to take their place
- massive increase in Burkinabè refugees while donor groups have cut funding from support programs for them to divert funding to ukraine
- ukrainians at u.s./mexico experiencing less frequent family separation, looser legal requirements, & far shorter wait times to enter the u.s. than Haitians & central amerikans who have been there for much longer

many people who've made the above observations have also pointed out that the response to ukrainian refugees has not been good enough. the fact that "not good enough" is still far above the staus quo should tell you something.

@noyovo Do you have sources?

@noyovo I was made aware that my posting above could sound like questioning your experience. This is not my intention. Especially, I want reports/reporting for your point 3 and 4 as ammunition in discussions with white germans.

However, if you don't think that my way of asking is OK, I will delete my question posting.

@Charlie Ah! A source that no white german will be able to question! @noyovo

re: antiblackness, white supremacy 

@carl @Charlie

best believe they can & will question everything if it goes against their interests

re: antiblackness, white supremacy 

@noyovo @carl ofc, just the deutschlandfunk has "Germany" in the name. I think the joke was that that's the reason they would like it. It's nevertheless public broadcasting, payed for by what the German right has recently begun calling "Zwangsgebühren" - "forced fees". They obviously hate it ; )

re: antiblackness, white supremacy 

@Charlie @carl didn't even realize it was a joke, thanks for clarifying

@noyovo At least now, the racism is clear and explicit. It can no longer be hidden behind "We can't afford it", "we can't help everyone", "There's no more room", etc. Denmark and Norway are rewriting laws that are considered too strict for white people, and accommodations have to be improved as well in order to become suitable for these new, white refugees. Fuck their racism with a telephone pole!

@jaramsli @noyovo
I saw Denmark is committed to:
-net zero immigration
-taking 100,000 Ukrainian refugees 🤔

Is Denmark the most racist EU nation, I know it's a competitive field.

throw the whole continent away

@noyovo @jaramsli
No separate watershed from Asia. Not even a real continent.

@floppyplopper @noyovo I'd range the three most racist nations as Hungary, Poland, Denmark.

@floppyplopper @noyovo There would be a way to solve it, and still keep net zero immigration:
-------
<b>
For each new immigrant, deport two racists.
</b>
-------
Result:
a) The more refugees/immigrants you welcome, the more room you get.
b) Society as a whole would become a nicer place to live
c) Since racists on average are a bunch or stupid, useless twats, society would become more productive.
