The question came up today while watching the “Murder, Rape & Lies” show, also known as the News. My wife said, ” there are no Black people in Russia”. After she said it, I recalled that I had never saw a Black or Spanish speaking person in or associated with .#Russia so, of course, I had to do some research on this issue, what I found out, really blew my fucking mind.
First of all, in Russia, Black people are called “Afro Russians” #WTF! Afro-Russians are people of Black African descent, or those who are perceived to be dark-skinned compared to other given populations that have migrated to and settled in Russia. The Metis Foundation estimates that there are about 40,000 Afro-Russians.
So is Russia racist against black people? Should they travel there? This is a question that I still find difficult to answer so that means, STAY YOUR BLACK ASS OUT OF RUSSIA Max numbers are about 100k Blacks in Russia, (out of population of more than 148 million) mostly concentrated in the larger cities. Many are there illegally having traveled to Russia hoping to use it as a waystation to travel further into Europe. Most have failed, and are stranded there for economic reasons.
Unfortunately, as with Jews and Central Asians, most Black people find Russia to be an exceptionally racist and unwelcoming place to be. There have been attacks on people of color, reported and unreported, but the Russian legal system seems to not be able to protect them. Or it doesn’t have a desire to do so. Now we know why .#DonaldTrump loves .#russia so much.
