In her video, she says, “When we see the media talking these Ukrainians — as if they are just this anomalous group of people that because of their whiteness they can’t understand how they can be in this situation — what they’re saying without saying is that they can understand why Palestinians are in their situation. They’re saying they can understand why Central Americans, why Mexicans … Basically, what they’re saying is they can understand who’s not white is in any situation that is similar to the Ukrainian situation,. And what that means is what they’re saying is that they don’t consider anyone who’s not white civilized. So, in particular, when Black people look to other othered groups and we say, ‘You know, we should all be in solidarity,’ this is a scenario where you can look and see they don’t like y’all either.” #Socialites, thoughts?
