Young Thug is calling on his "rap brothers" to help African immigrants trapped in Ukraine amid Russia's deadly invasion. The "Ski" rapper's offer comes after reports of racism emerged from people who say Black people are being told to allow "real Ukrainians" flee the country first.
"If some of my rap brothers are in I'm willing to help Africans get out of Ukraine however I can sense they not letting us pass," Thugger wrote on his Instagram Story on Sunday (February 27). "Whoever holds the info to these movements please contact me ASAP I'm ready," he added.
Shocking video released on social media shows African immigrants being told to get to the back of lines at the Ukraine-Poland border, while other clips shows people actively preventing Black people from entering trains and other forms of transportation.
Thugger shared one gut-wrenching video of a woman holding a baby in frigid temperatures as a group of people are reportedly denied access to leave.
