Why An MSNBC Hack Said People Care About Ukraine Is Absolutely Sickening!

On Monday, Joy Reid of MSNBC was all out after she said that she thinks the world to pay such close attention to the devastating war in Ukraine because of the fact that it’s a European nation consisting largely of white people and Christians.

During the closing segment of her show The Reid out, she claimed that there is a “racial disparity” in how Western media portrays the suffering of the Ukrainian people versus how their “Browner and Blacker” counterparts across the globe are portrayed.

Reid said:

“As the world watches the devastation unfold in Ukraine, nearly 4,000 miles away, another crisis is deepening that we don’t hear much about in the U.S., and that is the war in Yemen.”

She argued that while the world sympathized with Ukraine, Yemen hadn’t witnessed the same solidarity as Ukraine, citing the lack of global campaigns and corporations taking a stand for the war-torn country, and suggesting that Asia, Africa, and the Middle East weren’t as cared for as Europe.

She added:

“What we’re seeing in Ukraine is absolutely the worst humanitarian crisis that Europe has seen in decades. But we haven’t witnessed the same type of solidarity for the Yemenese as we do for the Ukrainians. We don’t see historic sanctions or global campaigns or corporations like Airbnb and Netflix taking a stand.”

Reid continued:

“The coverage of Ukraine has revealed a pretty radical disparity in how human Ukrainians look and feel to Western media, compared to their Browner and Blacker counterparts. With some reporters using very telling comparisons in their analyses of the war.”

“But we don’t need to ask ourselves if the international response would be the same if Russia unleashed their horror on a country that wasn’t White and largely Christian, because Russia has already done it,” argued the left-wing host.

Reid was wrong, the response for both countries won’t be the same since Yemen, won’t be escalating into a nuclear war that would affect everyone across the globe. The reason why the international attention is more focused on the war Ukraine wasn’t about the race it’s all about the involvement of other countries and its huge effect globally.  For example, Russia is an important supplier of oil and natural gas, and Europe’s economy faces great risk as it is very dependent on energy from Russia.

Yes, the majority of the Ukrainians are Christians and White, but this is not the main reason which Reid is wrongfully referring to that won’t impact the global economy. We are talking about the potential of nuclear war which can’t turn an issue of race that Reid was trying to do.
