Sweden is hell on earth

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

Submitted by me (Sweden), Mar 3, 2014 at 16:11

I absolutely aggree with this! I have lived in Sweden for 3 years and have experienced such discrimination, bashing and just got depressed, as many immigrants here. Most of all it is not the cold, terrible weather with 10 days of sunshine a year, the most depressing this is the PEOPLE, the Swedes. Biggest rasists, xenophobes, two faced people on this planet.

There are two types of swedes - ones that smile at you and at least try to hide that they are racist (but still don't care about you at all), and those that are openly rasist and xenophobic. I was spoken down countless times, was told to 'go piss in the corner' when I asked where the bathroom was, was totally ignored when I asked a question and many other things. You can basically forget getting a proper job here (only 10% of educated immigrants get a job according to their education) and it's even hard to get a crappy job like washing dishes, or packing stuff. Forget it.

I am actually a European educated female student and by my appearance could pass for a local, but I have received such a discrimination and have gotten into serious depression a few times in these 3 years. I bet it must be 100 times worse for people of other races, I feel so bad for them.

A few other things I could add, even though these people (if you can call them people) do not hire you to work, they are so incompetent themselves that it's ridiculous, they cannot answer questions, many are just plain stupid. Also, there are no boundaries about sex here, so if you see someone half naked here, you have to ignore it, if you hear a neighbour having loud sex 4 AM you have to ignore it (and you can't call police, because they're also racist), if you see people having sex with different people every night, you have to ignore it. Another thing, ths place is very expensive and TOTALLY not worth the money, you can pay a huge rent for a shitty shabby old apartment with paper walls (and once again you are forced listen to neighbours having sex all night).

I am literally spending 200 days a years indoors, without going out at all, because I can't stand it, it just gets me down. I am counting the days untill I can get out of here, when I'm on a plane flying out of here, I'll show a middle finger out of the illuminator and NEVER come back.

If you are considering coming to Sweden, my honest advice, DO NOT DO IT, this is the worst place on earth, it's basically hell.
