If it isn’t, it’ll do until something even more spectacularly bone-headed comes along. Click the image for a larger view.
Dear Ms. Forsythe,
For your information, as far as I’m aware, there are vanishingly few (if any) authentically black or brown ethnic Russians. Their native genes (you should pardon the expression) don’t contain the necessary color-coding. Therefore, the chances of a black or brown Russian running that country are so slim as to be effectively non-existent. “White privilege” and “white supremacy” simply aren’t relevant factors there. To pretend otherwise would be un-ethnical.
However, your unblinking focus on racial animosity and hostility probably won’t allow you to acknowledge that. Perhaps you should try thinking outside the racial box once in a while?
Your blogger-mentor in international genetics.
(In the light of your views, perhaps he should acknowledge [while pretending to hang his head in simulated shame] that he’s your non-Russian, African-born-and-bred [hence far more African than most Americans using that label], Caucasian [i.e. white] mentor).
I don’t suppose it’ll do much good, but in the interest of positive race relations, one has to try.
