Denmark has a serious problem with racism. They say its all about the bad muslim immigrants who terrorize the country, but its bs. I am an american and after living there for a few months back in '02, I can safely say that the country is regressing socially. I am half african american and half norwegian, but I look more like an arab or latin than black. People treated me like crap right from the start, including the immigrants who would always want to take out their frustrations with the bush administration on me.

I was not let into a night club for the specific reason that I looked too muslim or whatever, like a so called "perker". there was too much to even go into all the details. Basically, I have never experienced such blatant racism in my life. Is that really what you want people going home and telling their friends about your country? That its totally backwards and ignorant, intolerant and racist. change your ways soon before racism becomes one of the hallmarks of Danish Society.
