Why can't Swedes (and other Scandinavians) just accept that they are terrible racist people?

Basically 100% of Swedes and other Scandinavians are racist. But Swedes are very desensitized towards racism so I don't blame them for thinking themselves not to be racist.

They'll say something like this:

"yeah it's true that we don't allow non-white males to enter bars or clubs, but it's not really racism"
"yeah it's true that non-white males are given angry stares all day and always ignored, but it's not really racism"
"yeah it's true that it's virtually impossible for a non-white male to find a non-menial job in Sweden, but it's not really racism"
"yeah it's true that we don't consider immigrants as humans, but it's not really racism"
"yeah it's true that there's lots of Nazis in Sweden, I personally know some, but it's not really racism"

For any non-white male visiting Sweden the best way to avoid racism there is to just like act like a VISITOR and NOT an immigrant, try to speak English only.

For whites and females you may have a much easier time in Sweden. ...
