Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday warned against growing anti-white racism in the United States and said that political correctness “taken to the extreme” would have lamentable consequences.
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 Rootand 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.
