It’s not racism if they’re Russian.
Russians are the epitome of white privilege, being given an entire nation for only white people.
Why should they be allowed to do that?
They should have to have blacks and others in their space, feeding on their labor.
It’s funny because I get a nasty feeling when I see Megan Kalmoe.Megan Kalmoe, part of the US rowing team at the Tokyo Olympics, says that it is ‘really disappointing’ to see Russian athletes compete at this summer’s event after duo Vasilisa Stepanova and Elena Oriabinskaia won silver.
Russian athletes are competing under the ‘Team ROC’ banner in Tokyo, reflecting that they are representing the Russian Olympic Committee rather than Russia itself due to sanctions imposed after a WADA investigation into long-running doping allegations.
The ROC team has so far won 28 medals (including 8 golds) in less than a week of official Olympic competition – although some rivals appear bitter at seeing Russian athletes performing to such a high level.
One such athlete is American Megan Kalmoe, who displayed her frustration at ROC rowers Stepanova and Oriabinskaia after they took silver in the coxless pair A final on Thursday.
But she’s right – why should Russians be allowed to go anywhere or do anything?
Russians going places and doing things is pure white supremacy, which our democracy has fought to prevent.“Seeing a crew who shouldn’t even be here walk away with a silver is a nasty feeling,” Kalmoe snipped wrote on Twitter.
“Really disappointing overall and I feel for the other athletes in the A Final. Big love to all my friends and frenemies who gave it everything out there.”
When asked by a person on Twitter if she felt it was fair to place “all Russian athletes into the same category,” she replied: “Surely you must be joking since their M4X (men’s quadruple sculls) just got busted for doping.”

We have to stand up against Russia, and stop whiteness from spreading.
