Racism? Civilizationism? Something, anyway.
Everybody is up in arms about the Olympics being held in Russia, thanks to that country's "gay propaganda" law (which is both wider and less damning that it's made out to be, though very likely the camel's nose for Russian legislation).
But Qatar, which has a World Cup coming up, is much worse. And India just criminalized homosexuality. Uganda's draconian law passed without much, if indeed any, mainstream media attention.
I can't help but wonder how much of this is because - maybe only subconsciously - we hold Russia, as a European country filled with white people, to a different standard. (Or maybe figure we can harangue them with impunity, unlike the others.)
