World Getting Tired of Racism! Sustainable Living Should Be Our Priority.



Addressing Inequality for Sustainable Living

Activists assert that addressing inequality is a crucial aspect of sustainable living. By ensuring that resources, opportunities, and benefits are distributed equitably, we can create a more just and sustainable society for all. This includes addressing economic disparities, social injustices, and environmental degradation to build a more sustainable future for everyone.

"It’s impossible to live sustainably without tackling inequality, activists say."


Police violence is a component of the wider phenomenon of structural violence, of which the climate crisis is also a manifestation. Addressing structural violence is fundamentally in the best interest of all humanity. Public opinion polls indicate that, on average, African-Americans and Latinos are more concerned about climate issues than whites. Furthermore, it is crucial to integrate anti-racism into the objectives of all organizations, including those led by whites, as both structural racism and environmental racism contribute to excessive pollution and climate denial.


Sri Lanka halts free visas for long-staying Russian, Ukrainian nationals after they disrespect their people with a whites only party.


Sri Lanka has decided to stop issuing free long-term visas to Russian and Ukrainian nationals who have lived in the Indian Ocean island nation for the past two years, a government official said on Thursday. Ukrainians are very family-oriented with the grandparents living with their children and children's children. The people are very hospitable and enjoy sharing their homes, food and drink with visitors as long as they are white and Christian. Since Moscow invaded Ukraine in February 2022, Sri Lanka has allowed Russians and Ukrainians to stay in the country without paying for visas, but they will now have to pay the charges. The rate is about $50 for a 30-day visa, if they wish to stay in Sri Lanka, Public Security Minister Tiran Alles told Reuters. The rest must go.


This racism is nothing new for the part of the world Ukrainians are from they are a very fearful and xenophobic people. But this is not the first time that Ukraine's racism and even its role in WWII has sparked a debate! Canada, which is home to the largest Ukrainian diaspora outside of Europe was disturbed to find out how culturally prevalent white supremacist leanings were in the Ukraine. Several monuments dedicated to Ukrainian WWII veterans who served in the Galicia Division exist across the country. Jewish groups have long denounced these dedications, arguing soldiers in the Galicia Division swore allegiance to Adolf Hitler, and were either complicit in Nazi Germany's crimes or had committed crimes themselves. The Ukranian refugees in London also complained about the brown and black people that they have to live near. To share a school with. Their children would rather not go to school with these groups. It is par for the course in racism 101.Ukraine and Russia have been closed societies for a long time and are not used to different peoples.



The US-based Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association was also deeply troubled by the Western media news coverage that alluded that the Ukraine war was more disturbing than others because they were "White and Civilized" The association recently issuing a statement on the matter: “Ameja condemns and categorically rejects orientalist and racist implications that any population or country is ‘uncivilized’ or bears economic factors that make it worthy of conflict,” reads the statement. “This type of commentary reflects the pervasive mentality in western journalism of normalizing tragedy in parts of the world such as the Middle East, Africa, south Asia, and Latin America.” Such coverage, the report correctly noted, “dehumanizes and renders their experience with war as somehow normal and expected”.


"More troubling still is that this kind of slanted and racist media coverage extends beyond our screens and newspapers and easily bleeds and blends into our politics. Consider how Ukraine’s neighbors are now opening their doors to refugee flows, after demonizing and abusing refugees, especially Muslim and African refugees, for years. “Anyone fleeing from bombs, from Russian rifles, can count on the support of the Polish state,”


The History books wish Ukrainians had shown this much mercy to Jews in their own land since the Galicia Division was a part of the Waffen-SS, a Nazi military unit that on the whole was found to have been involved in numerous atrocities, including the massacring of Jewish civilians. During the war, more than one million Jews in Ukraine were killed, mostly between 1941 and 1942. Most of them were shot to death near their homes by Nazi Germans and their collaborators. The Galicia Division has been accused of committing war crimes, but its members have never been found guilty in a court of law.


Meanwhile the average commentary by European media is that "the influx of Ukrainian refugees across Europe will improve long-term gross domestic product (GDP) for European countries that invest in infrastructure and other capital improvements. However, countries receiving Ukrainian refugees will likely face significant costs in the short term." When it comes to Muslim ,Asian, Black or Brown refugees the rhetoric is that "as a result, the inflow of refugees substantially strains capital structures in these countries in the short run, prompting households to move to countries where capital is growing faster, which has a negative impact on employment and incentives to build capital structures over time."


Immigration has become a key demographic component in developed European nations with low fertility; Those countries need immigrants to fiscally survive and care for their increasingly elderly populations. Efforts to incentivize birthrates of indigenous populations has failed. Recent scientific studies, polls, and research have shown climate change and its economic effects is the single biggest issue causing lack of births among young people in Europe! Economic losses from weather- and climate-related extremes in Europe. Between 1980 and 2024, weather- and climate-related extremes caused economic losses of assets estimated at EUR 750 billion in the EU Member States.


Focusing specifically on the effects of climate change on average temperatures, points in this direction. Temperature has been found to affect income via agricultural yields, the physical and cognitive performance of workers, demand for energy, as well as the incidence of crime, unrest, and conflict.


How does climate change affect birth rates?

High temperatures due to climate change. Increasingly high temperatures can harm fertility and birth rates. According to research by UCLA environmental economist Alan Barreca, sperm production falls in hot weather and this leads to lower birthrates. A recent study published in the Human Reproduction Update found that the average sperm count declined by 59.3 percent in the last 40 years for Caucasian men in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. At that rate, men in those locations will have little or no reproductive capacity after 2060.
