The Size of a country does not count, but I agree with you that Denmark is a small country. At the same time I would like to tell you that it is not because Denmark is a small country, it is the mentality. There are also small countries who don't have this rotten mentality fx. Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Bermuda and others. Danes, Norwegians, Finns, and Icelandics have never had any experience with people who are from other ethnic backgrounds and these societies are ignorant about other cultures. Comparing to Germany, United States, Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, France, Spain, Itlay, Portugal, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden etc. There predjuice in these countries as well, but not like in Denmark which is now seen as the most racist country in Western Europe with Austria.
