Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Sweden is the most racist country

Submitted by Hannah (Sweden), Sep 23, 2010 at 20:32

Hello!

It's really sad you got that perception of Swedes but surley you have a good reason for it. Wether what I have to express my opinions about this because what you've written really hurt me. Of course there are prejudiced and xenophobic people in Sweden but not EVERYONE! Do you think that 9 million people are exactly the same? Share same opinions and arguments about everything? If that's the case, you're not that open-minded yourself.

It was also in UK, the New nazis began? But does that influence my opinions about brittish people badly? Absolutly not. Me myself, got the impression that brittish people are very polite and friendly. In generallity as we say.

And please don't dare call me racist or something like that! My dads girlfriend is from Ethiopia. A close friend of mine is from Irac and he's a moslim. My best friend is from Sri Lanka. My dads former girlfriend is from Iran and is a shiamoslim. Like most of the people there.

So please, don't generlize that much. You don't know every person in Sweden. It's quite cynical according to me. And we have not more prejudics than other countries even if we have a lot. Why else would we have such a generous immigrant politic if we compare to other countries? But we are exactly as you. We have racists here like you have in England, France and Germany too.

The only country that actually have'nt a lot prejudics against immigrants are americans. US, and of course it's because all of them are immigrants.

Hope you got a more broad view on swedish people after reading this. :)
