Shocked!

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by A.K.A (Denmark), Apr 11, 2009 at 22:18

Well i have always been an open minded person thinking good things about people, but i sadly tend to agree that there is alot of racism going on in Denmark, and it has its ways as coming out subtly. I mean at first instance it all looks inncent though when you think about it, the country is regressing socially. I understand that we are all some sort of visitors to this country but i also state as a fact that we all are here due to the fact that the Danish Govt has invited us through diffecernt ways i.e. immigrants, foreign students, foreign skilled workers...but the fact is There is invitation, so if you invite a guest to your home, isnt it prudent to treat them well? I mean the muslims are not here bbecause they forced themselves, no they are here because the Danish govt took them in and INTEGRATED THEM! so what is the justification of not accomodating them? surely they are a people strong in religious belief and I trust theat the learned Danish Govt did factor in this issue.

Another thing, i really cant seem to understand why Denmark a developed country with learned citizens who learn English from grade 3 seldom refuse to communicate in English? i mean surely if in Africa where we are so called least developed, even in peasant markets upon seeing that someone is white skinned, we try to our best to speak english even if it is pathetic the fact is that White people get good treatmnt in Africa, so whats the difference?
