Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says there is surging “aggression against white people” in the United States and that it is harming efforts to fight racism.
Lavrov made the comments during an interview with political scientists that was broadcast on national television.
“We were pioneers of the movement promoting equal rights of people of any skin color,” said Lavrov, adding that “everyone wants to get rid of racism.”
However, he emphasized how it was important “not to switch to the other extreme which we saw during the ‘BLM’ (Black Lives Matter) events and the aggression against white people, white U.S. citizens.”
Lavrov also insisted that forces within the U.S. were trying to spread a “cultural revolution” around the world by forcing “diversity” down everyone’s throats.
“Hollywood is now also changing its rules so that everything reflects the diversity of modern society,” he said, labeling it “a form of censorship.”
“I’ve seen Black people play in Shakespeare’s comedies. Only I don’t know when there will be a white Othello,” Lavrov said.
“You see this is absurd. Political correctness taken to the point of absurdity will not end well,” he concluded.
I wouldn’t even call it actual racism what we are witnessing though. I mean, at the lowest levels sure. What’s really happening is white people are using racist black people to attack other white in hopes of causing civil unrest and destabilization of the US.
It’s the same playbook we use in other countries. Split everyone into factions and then start supporting those factions monetarily to carry out provocation.
There are a lot of racist people on both sides of the aisle who need to just die already so the rest of us can get on with life, but I don’t think our government and media should be encouraging it.
