Disinfo: The “systemic racism” paradigm is deadly for America’s white people, which are disenfranchised and oppressed

Summary

The paradigm of “systemic racism”, which is dominant in American society, is deadly for whites and for their civilisation. The white race is the truly disenfranchised and oppressed race in the US.

White males are demonised in American society. White males in the US have become the monstrous Other in their own nation.

Disproof

Disinformation presented with no evidence. The article claims, without any evidence, that the “systemic racism” paradigm – one of the key concepts undepinning tbe racial justice protests in the US - “is deadly for whites and for their civilisation” and that white males in the US are demonised and oppressed. These claims are consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the racial justice protests in the US and about the alleged victimisation of whites in American society.

It is not true that the “systemic racism” concept is an existential threat to white people, as the article suggests. The “systemic racism” concept has been widely debated in the US, and refers to “a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity”. The concept advocates the need for social reform to reduce and eliminate racial injustice in America, not for violence and oppression against white people.

Furthermore, the article’s claims that in the US whites are “disenfranchised and oppressed” and that white males are “demonised” are obviously baseless.

Read a similar case claiming that in the West white male heterosexuals cannot defend themselves against discrimination and are increasingly treated as criminals by courts.

Russia is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict

In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LPR and DPR, which declared independence after the coup d’etat in Ukraine in February of the same year. According to the latest UN data, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict. Kyiv has repeatedly accused the Russian Federation of intervening in the conflict in the region. Russia denies these charges. Moscow has stated more than once that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in seeing Kyiv overcome the political and economic crisis.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine, attempting to portray it as a civil war.

There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in eastern Ukraine.

There is no doubt Russia has total sovereignty over the Kuril Islands

According to the resolution taken in 1945, the Kuril Islands became part of the Soviet Union. Today, the US State Department puts the results of World War II into question and encourages a tendency for revenge (By requesting Russian citizens born in the Kuril Islands to obtain an American residence permit).

Moscow insists that the aforementioned islands have become part of the Soviet Union legally, based on the results of the Second World War, and are part of Russia’s territory as the successor to the Soviet Union, noting that Russia’s sovereignty over the four islands is not questionable.

Disproof

Japan has disputed Russian ownership of the Northern Territories / Southern Kurils since the end of World War II.

The Island chain referred to as the Kuril Islands stretches northeast from Japan’s main northern island of Hokkaido to Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula.

Sweden supports Russia on Crimea

Sweden supports Russian on the ownership of Crimea. Crimea was always Russian. This view predominates in Sweden, says billionaire Dan Sten Olsson. According to the businessman, this view in only not supported by NATO.

Disproof

A recurrent claim on Crimea’s status and a false statement on Sweden’s position on the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Mr. Olsson is the head of a Swedish transnational corporation with large trade with Russia. He did express support Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in an interview with the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, but the claim was a personal view of Mr. Olsson. The businessman does not suggest that his views are representative for neither Swedish business circles, nor among Swedes in general.
