I feel it too

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: The Growing Racism in Denmark

Submitted by Diemf Leatres (Denmark), Sep 27, 2008 at 20:11

I'm not jewish, I'm not dark skinned. I'm a white Belgian student. and even I can feel the racism. Situated in Kolding I have a South african friend here and he is constantly in 'danger'. People shout at him, I recently got into a fight because they wanted my friend to come outside and help me.

In Belgium racism is a great problem but here it's an accepted and shared part of their culture. My intentions are not to generalize because I met great Danes with no racial problem whatsoever.

I'm here for one year and in the first three weeks problems arose so I hope nothing else happens from now on.
