Racist Assumptions

 Justified outrage at language used to report on the Russian invasion of Ukraine: Moustafa Bayoumi They are ‘civilised’ and ‘look like us’: the racist coverage of Ukraine Guardian 2nd March 2022. While not wanting to comment on this at any length, I have long been calling out the same ambivalent approach to artefact hunting, when it is done by brown-skinned people it is called "looting", when it is white skinned people, it is "citizen archaeology" (and when the white skinned people are in Eastern Europe, the anglophone term is "black archaeology"). It is time to stop all of this.
