Just really no substantial evidence for this claim, but I hear and read this all the time. Perhaps it’s because whites are seen as the one’s whose culture is always moving forward, and blacks backwards? That’s why Obama can lecture Africa about its homophobia but not Russia in the same manner. White supremacist double standards.
White supremacy needs its double standards and myths in order to continue its existence, and trick people into the idea that it doesn’t exist. I sounded off more than three years ago about the problematic Swiss’ racial profiling and burqa bans. Now, Switzerland is poised to enact racial segregation versus legal immigrants. Even religion is implicated in this blatant racist law: “In Bremgarten, a church will also be off-limits to asylum-seekers.” It seems even after apologizing for neoconfederate Paula Deen and the fact that she’s a billionaire could not even keep Oprah Winfrey from experiencing Swiss racism. No form of monetary gain, no politics of respect [sorrynotsorry Don Lemon] through capitalism or socialism will solve the problem of the color line. White supremacy must be called out, confronted, and dismantled as an institution.
European Union Nobel Peace Prize

Let’s see, so, one would think that making peace possible would qualify oneself for the Nobel Peace Prize, but apparently, unqualified parties get to win the prize now and then. First, President Obama, and now the European Union, you know the same one punishing innocent civilian with their sanctions against Iran. Causing unemployment, devaluing a country’s currency, and denying citizens access to medical care is not a way to stop a nuclear threat, no, in fact, it will only serve to embitter the populace against their “saviors.” Why should the people be punished for their leader’s mistakes? That’s why sanctions are an extension of war. But at least in formally declared wars, civilian casualties are talked about as a “risk of the operation.” Sanctions make civilian casualties the norm. And let’s not forget that time the EU promised not to send ground troops into Libya!
