Apparently some people think Russophobia is a dangerous international problem. Russians are mostly white people, aren’t they? Nobody has to like Russian culture. Most of us don’t know a damn thing about it–except for their remarkable literature & revolution. But there is no possible comparison between the alleged dislike of Russian culture or any other culture & racism against black & brown people which is one of the most destructive political forces in the world.

Just so we’re clear, disagreeing with Putin’s military policies is not a Russophobic reaction. It is an antiwar imperative.
