MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed the only reason the world is paying so much attention to the war in Ukraine was that consists "largely of white people and Christians."

Reid suggested that if such a war had taken place in another part of the world, where citizens are not largely White and/or Christian, the international response would not be as big.

Reid claimed there is a “racial disparity” in how Western media portrays the suffering of the Ukrainian people versus how their “Browner and Blacker” counterparts.

“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,” Reid said.

The host went on to talk about the crisis in Yemen that began in 2015, as well as the significant displacement of Yemenese people.

Reid argues that those who have suffered in Yemen don’t receive as much media coverage or global attention because of their race.

“What we’re seeing in Ukraine is absolutely the worst humanitarian crisis that Europe has seen in decades,” said Reid.

“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.”

“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,” continued Reid.

“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.

Bu the response wouldn’t be the same because the humanitarian crisis in, say, Yemen, won’t be escalating into a nuclear war that would affect everyone across the globe.

The international attention gained by the war in Ukraine is less about race and more about the involvement of other countries.
