It is not false that Europe ignores problems on Syria.

It is also not false that people only care about the problems around them and that could negatively influence on their lives.

The world is a sad place. Nobody is excluded.

At least we can make jokes about it.

That’s not really a “people” problem. What you are saying is a projection. Much of the Middle East, for example (and especially Syria), warmly welcomed refugees from Greece, Armenia, Circassian, etc just as well as they have received refugees from Arab countries like Iraq, Kuwait, etc.

So yeah, not everyone is racist and checks someone’s ethnicity or skin color before helping.

If your neighbor needs your help, do you refuse because there are Syrians out there who need more help, or because you failed to help Syrians before?

Russians are “white”. A lot of Syrian people as well. Its not really about skin color, just if you have the right passport.

They hold a neo-nazi view of whiteness based on aryan purity. Russians are considered asiatic by nazis. Syrians are considered semitic. The truth is this is about imperial interests, they just find the neo-nazi race conciousness convenient.

Europe is always ready to save white people

You make that sound like its racist for European countries wanting to help out a European neighbor. It isn’t.

It is, we’ve seen how Europe treats refugees from the countries NATO destroyed.

I’m honestly curious how one can sincerely frame any form of humanitarian aid as racism.

If you can’t understand how restricting humanitarian aid exclusively to white people is racist, don’t know what else to tell you. Europe literally sunk boats and drowned refugees fleeing from the horrors NATO created in the Middle East.

humanitarian aid is not racist. It is the refusal or reduce of humanitarian aid selectively that is the problem

Maybe post some constructive information about that to educate people rather than a meme that says more about the author than a particular situation they are trying to describe.

Yeah I am indeed seeing that, encountered so many of them on Reddit and XMPP chatrooms in the past 2 days. Even met a Ukrainian as bonus.

Someone downvoted a comment I had literally 2 secs after I posted it. They wouldn’t have had time to read anything I wrote or the source I linked. They’re seething at anyone who thinks outside the NATO box.

Maybe some constructive comment asking for more detailed sources on the topic rather than a rant would have been more welcome?

Rules:

  1. Be civil and nice.
  2. Try not to excessively repost, as a rule of thumb, wait at least 2 months to do it if you have to.
