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

Submitted by sickofsweden (Sweden), Mar 14, 2013 at 04:49

Completely agree. What makes me most mad and disgruntled about this country is not the racism itself, because that exists everywhere, but it's the dissimulation and cynicism with wich swedes handle it. Their "exceptionality complex" makes them blindly believe that such things do not exist here. Then, if you are well qualified, but looking for jobs in areas that, say, are not IT-related, for a couple of years without success they will BLAME you for being unemployed, because, well, look at all those immigrants in IT companies.

They look at your CV and shout, "but your CV is soooo good! Why haven't you gotten a job yet?!? Have you really been looking for one?". I'm tired of the endless times that I've heard such a thing. And tired of all this narrow debate about integration that focus on immigrants as if THE problem lies in our makings. That's why Sweden lags behind so terribly compared to other european countries, because swedes don't want to address THEIR problem with immigration. This is a problem with their mentality, that is twisted, not with immigrants.
