There is one quite important point missing in this article, and I do not know why it has been omitted. If you, the author, are unaware of it, it proves bad research. If you omitted it on purpose, it shows you are biased.
It is a fact that in 2015/2016 the refugees reaching Europe were mostly young men. Now any sociologist can explain to you, citing crime statistics, that young men are more prone to violence (outside their homes) than older men or women (whereas older men tend more towards domestic violence, if you believe German statistics). Due to factors such as age, lack of occupation, culture clash, mental illness etc. some (by far not many or most) young refugees were involved in crimes such as theft, robbery, drug trafficking, rape and murder, in several European countries. I do not contest that these things could have happened with any group of young men, their “misbehaviour” not limited to a special culture. Additionally, cultural factors led to “misunderstandings”, as girls and women were not accustomed to dealing with young men with a cultural background that different, sometimes resulting in abuse and other cimes. Statistics show that most “recipients” of violence at the hand of refugees were other refugees, though, but this is nothing to rejoice about. The “welcome mentality” changed over the years.
The refugees coming in from Ukraine are women and children. They are not perceived as dangerous. Their husbands and fathers, who sometimes bring them to the borders and then return to fight the aggressors are admired for their bravery. Sure, Ukrainians are more similar to most Europeans than let’s say people from Afghanistan. But you should have seen Germans welcome Afghans, Syrians, people from the African continent some years ago in Munich, throwing teddy bears as a sign of their enthusiasm towards the refugees - it did not matter at all that the refugees looked different. Katrin Göring-Eckardt, a German politician (Green Party) declared in November 2015 that the German population would become more colourful, diverse and religious because of the refugees. That does not sound like racism to me.
Instead of insinuating that a whole country (“I’m praying for Ukraine… to stop being racist”) or a whole continent (Europe) is displaying racism, you should recognize that 1. the sad racist behaviour you describe at the beginning of your article has been displayed by some Ukrainians or Europeans, but not by ALL of them, and that you have absolutely no idea how racist any population besides the U.S. population is, because you live in the U.S., and 2. that Europeans might have reasons from experience to rather welcome women with children than young men with a different cultural background.
In these times, it is not beneficial to display arrogance and judgement, living thousands of miles apart and not being really involved in the situation. Instead, you should rejoice in the fact that people are so freely willing to help, that Russians are donating for Ukrainians, that Russians are risking their freedom and health demonstrating against war (over 7500 Russians have been arrested so far, if you believe German press), that a couple (she from Russia, he from Belarus) living in Germany took a Ukrainian refugee and her children into their home (as shown in German television Friday 4th of March). What are you doing besides saying prayers which sound more like a reproach?
