Calling others racist is just a modern way to insult

Reader comment on item: How Ukrainian Refugees Could Inadvertently Erase the West
in response to reader comment: EU acceptance of Ukrainian refugees is not racism

Dear Dr Pipes,
I see nothing wrong if US, UK, and other Western nations provide assistance to Ukranian refugees based on the color of their skins. There is absolutely no justification in applying rules about racism only on white people but not any one else. When Liberia was created for American blacks, it was created in Africa and not in Asia Or Latin America or Asia. Was that racism? When sindhi and punjabi people ran away from Pakistan in 1947, they found home in India and not in Myanmar or China. Was that racism? When Arabs come to the US, they assemble in Michigan more often than not. Is that racism? Ukrainians would/should be welcome in all freedom loving countries but they will most easily blend in the societies of Western Europe. No need to defame anyone for commonsense.

Funnily, it is only Muslims seek shelter in nations most different from theirs. That is because they have no short-term goals. Their only goal is long-term and it is to establish Islam everywhere.
