Top 10 Least Racist Countries
Now I'm not a person of color, however as long as I've lived here racism never seemed to be that big of an issue here. I personally didn't realize how much of a sore topic racism is in other countries since it seems to be a much more relaxed topic here.
I'm not saying we don't have any racism. It's impossible not to have any, however the government and the system here doesn't seem to be working against people based on the color of their skin.
Norway is a very tranquil and wealthy country full of kind and helpful citizens. Foreigners are free from any discrimination whatsoever when they visit Norway. Norwegians are one of the most tolerant people in the world; they do not hate others.
Norwegians are the least racist people in the world. Unlike Americans, Norwegians don't discriminate; they accept people of all races. If you want to live in a country where there is zero racism, go to Norway.
Definitely the least racist country in the world. It's also one of the safest countries. Norway has a way better quality of life than any country in the world.
New Zealand is an accepting country and they are very welcoming to tourists and new residents. Though there are limited job opportunities and housing is expensive, it is the most tolerant place on earth after Canada. The Maoris are over-represented in the House of Representatives whereas it includes people of South Pacific and Asian descent. New Zealand has grown to be a country where they are more laid back and open. The Maoris are fairly treated well compared to Canada and Australia's first nations.
New Zealand is a peaceful country and with that comes to mind, people want to move and live there. No matter what, Kiwis are more laid back people than Australians and Americans. They are similar to Canadians but I've heard Muslim residents in Canada are constantly being called terrorists. Sure, some racial incidents happened in New Zealand but they rarely happen compared to Australia. New Zealand is the most tolerant country in the world.
Only reason we're not number 1 is cause the little rebel teens and young adult Maoris and islanders trying to run amok in Auckland, they are the one that spit racist remarks to Asians and Indians. If you want to have a friendly experience, go to Queenstown in the South Island, or where I live in Wellington, Rotorua is the highest point you should go. If your a foreigner avoid South Auckland, Gisborne, Napier, Hastings, or the West of South Island.
New Zealand people are nice and kind unlike United States of America where they have white supermacists, KKK and shooting black people.
I doubt so because Singapore may have the most diverse population in the world, it doesn't have the tolerance of any sort. These restrictions include the so called "Gay People" who are not allowed to be seen which could land them in Jail Time. Another enactment of discrimination is basically the treatment of other SE Asian people outside of Singapore, which are maids from Indonesia and the Philippines who are mistreated even backlashed with Racial and Intolerant views either because they are both third world countries that are trying to earn in order to help their family. Another issue is that Singapore just has a lack of value of freedom despite have a partially fine background but plagued with discrimination. Someone must of been an idiot to realise why they added singapore to this List!
Singapore was never a tolerant country, even Lee Kuan Yew who was the first Prime Minister implemented laws that were definitely prejudice. It's illegal to express your support for the LGBTQ as well as engaging in LGBTQ activities within the country. The Indian population has also in fact, been faced with vulnerable cases of racism because of their presence and even the mistreatment of maids who are from the Philippines and Indonesia have faced many cases of discrimination. There is no tolerance within those groups and the LGBTQ, Inhumane and racist views on Filipinos, Indonesians and Singaporean Indians are the few examples on why Singapore is a blatantly racist country. Sure, it is religiously diverse but the issues are centred around the belittling of someone's race and background. Singaporeans are beyond abusing the power of mistreating Filipino and Indonesian maids who are trying to work hard to feed their families back home. Being Gay, Queer and a Lesbian is highly restricted ...more
There are lots of people of different nationalities (mostly Chinese, Malay and Indian with a bit of European) & religions (mostly Buddhists, Muslims and Christians), yet everyone gets along! I'm British and I love Singapore.
Pro: a multi culture country with well educated people, no racism in singapore.
Con: expensive country to live
Brazil is incredibly mixed. African culture is celebrated and the brutality of the slave trade is acknowledged. Similarly, the culture of European and Asian immigrants that arrived in the 20th century has also melded in to form a wonderful, unique environment.
There are two types of brazilian people: Classic and common. Common: Rascist, arrogant, stupid retards. Classic: Education and wisdom.
I am Brazilian and I should say that our people is very mixed, we have lots of cultures and lots of races...
Wasn't Brazil the capital of the slave trade? 4 million slaves were shipped there from Africa.
Canadians are nice but they can be just as racist as America! But America is worse because of the murders towards non White people!
Unfortunately, there was an article about a Canadian woman who had a son with her at a clinic but realized that there wasn't a "white" doctor she wanted and therefore she called the Indian/South, "dirty and yellow teeth". Canada is supposed to be an inclusive country however targeting the UK or US for being more racist is not the case. Discrimination in Canada existed long ago when the British conquered land belonging to the native Aboriginals (Inuits). Don't think that Canada is a paradise for tolerance because you should look thoroughly into the history of its racist past. Some of which is still being carried on among the Inuit/Aboriginal population.
You're gonna get racism anywhere, so people who are complaining might as well accept this. It doesn't matter what country you're in, there is bound to be at least one person with a slightly more biased opinion than others. Yes, whoever that racist person is is an idiot, but the actions of a few do not make up that of a whole country. I agree, some countries have more racist people than others, but when your complaining about such a minority in a beautiful country such as Canada, you ought to rethink your statements, as we all know that NO COUNTRY IS A UTOPIA. We're all human beings. Racism is wrong. Deal, bruh
Canada is one of the most racist country in the world. It's no better than the U.S. I have lived here for more than 35 years. Not a day goes by without being discriminated. If you are a person from a visible minority group, you will be harassed in the stores and people will accuse you of stealing all the time. There are much better places in the world to live.
They have less than 1 percent minority population, which in their case amounts to only a few thousand people total.
They have some pretty good water! Also, they have a nice flag. 9/10 would recommend!
German people are ethnic. Professional more than emotional while treating with others. The opposite is Greece, emotional more than professional. You can't simply walk on the Greek streets without racial acts because of their ignorance that this guy is probably better than them. Germany has future because it uses the most of their people's creativity and productivity. Greece has no future. It just wants to be full of white color that makes the country beautiful. Seriously, they are lazy and have so many holidays.
Wait what? In the most racist countries this was number 6? Why is it number 3 in this list. But yes I agree it is not racist.
It looks like those Germans are no longer a Nazi solider nower days. Oh wait... It's because Hitler' is dead. That's why!
I'm Asian and was traveling in Germany for 11 days and I had no problem with it. German people are nice and not racist at all
I went there with fear. You know how the news channels are specially their own news channels. My parents warned me but I had to see it by myself. and woah, it was completely different. I have never seen such friendly people in my life. I am an American tourist and have been through many countries and have met many people but these guys were amazing. I spent most of my time in North of Pakistan, stayed for a while in Lahore and Karachi as well then turned back home! Loved their food as well. A little spicy for me, but yeah, it was delicious.
Pakistan has diversified itself over the years and is more tolerable and accepting than ever! It has just recently legalized transgender rights for marriage, has been accepting more tourists and has been the hub for one of the largest mass refugee migration! Despite of having a rough past, Pakistanis are still welcoming and want you to go visit this great nation and clear out all the misconceptions you might have! Hope you enjoy!
I am glad Pakistan is so. Although they have a history with Indian traditions, Pakistanis are unique. In Indian tradition white skin is everything, e.g. brides bathing in turmeric, numerous skin whitening creams, and the Bollywood industry is the biggest criminal. From makeup to whiten the skin to songs that speak of fair skin. In Pakistan, meanwhile, there is a famous song (that was also copied by bollywood) called Sanwali Saloni which actually seems to try and eliminate the "white complex" in society. Much better than the Indian "gore mukhde pe kaala chashma"!
Agree, in spite of political troubles inflicted by Americans this country is amzingly resilient. Everybody goes out of their way to help or even talk when they see a foreign face black or white. Even Sighs, who killed great number of Muslims during the partisian are so welcomed when they vist for pilgrimage of their holy places. It is a sharp contrast to India where hatred is built in in their religion.
While our government may be harsh, I would say that we all want to treat foreigners equally at least. I live in Aarhus, I have a lot of friends of different color and religion and they are some of my best friends. I just want everyone to be happy in this country regardless of color or where they are from. The Danish people are very introverted, so some of us might seem racist when we actually don't want to. If you were to live in Denmark, you should open up to Danes because they are too shy too talk. I would recommend beginning in a Club with people or a Højskole. I hope you end up loving this place and I would love to meet you and enjoy life together here. Mikkel from Aarhus.
About the subject of not being able to get a job.
When you're applying for a job, it's important to understand the educational requirements needed for the job, further more sometimes there is only 1 job available and 30 people that want this job.
this means that if someone wnats a job its not something you can expect to get.
Conclusion, its not fair if you didn't get the job and you think you didn't get it becouse of you're cultural back ground, that is not how you should live you're life,
you shouldn't wast time on this subject, if you're qualified for the job and somebody else gets the job, that's no racism, that's life
The Netherlands is a small countrie with a large population, this means its hard to get a job... for everybody.
Lived in Netherlands for 6 months, in Friesland. I faced no real racism as a student at all and travelled extensively. I don't know if there's racism simmering under the surface, as any racism I did face was from drunk people, and on the Frisian islands where people don't have much outside exposure. I'd say that even if there are racists, they aren't openly racist, which is more than I can say for most countries. Most people are friendly.
In The Netherlands; on the work floor and when getting a job it is known and scientifically approved/researched that there is still discrimination amongst foreign looking people (even if they are born in The Netherlands). It's especially bad when having a foreign surname when applying for a job. In the media, over the years, there have been examples of people with a foreign surname applying for a job, one CV with their real surname and another with a (fake) Dutch surname. The application was similar, except for the surname. What happened? The application with the (fake) Dutch surname got invited and the real one with a foreign surname did not. So in the Netherlands, there is some hidden discrimination, and the government is not doing anything about it. And even older people can't have a job because the older generation is overrated and companies only except young people nowadays.
We accept everyone, really. There are of course some racist people out there though, but no country is 100% free of racism, and I think the Netherlands is a very great country to accept people the way they are.
Wow look at all these racist swedish morons in the bottom talking about "3rd world" and "immigrants pissing all over the place" and you wonder why aren't on least racist countries? Bunch of anti social soulless creeps living in an ugly country with horrible weather and food. Thank you for showing us all your true colours and agenda. That is your only reason for "helping' immigrants, to improve your image abroad. You are no different than youtubers filming themselves to help homeless and poor for views. I am so disgusted.
Oh god why aren't we higher? Isn't it enough to throw our country in the bin to help those poor immigrants who will just piss on what we worked for? This is very insulting for our country and I think we should be higher.
Guys, you're wondering why Sweden isn't any higher, you're not helping your case by saying "we brought in the 3rd world! They're pissing on everything!", in fact, you're answering your own question.
Sweden is trying to be as equal as possible. I'm shocked that this wasn't higher in the list (At the moment 9th place).
The most diverse country in the world, accepting of Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, Sudanese, African, European and South American cultures, unlike some countries I know (I'm looking at you USA). The only racists are in their 70's or 80's and are only that way because in the 1950's Australia wasn't so diverse.
Australians often give up on tolerance for other races because they're treated so well in Australia yet they're often racist and rude to Australia people. Many migrants will take over businesses and replace workers with those of the same ethnicity.
Why is Australia below America? Australia is more tolerance than America.
Only racist towards those deserving. All hard workers accepted.
Madagascar is a blasian (black asian mixed) country. The central highlands are more Asian and the people in rest of the island are darker. So it's okay.
They like Indians and Chinese, less though, but it's not because of looks or race, but more because of their impact on the economy.
Some in Antananarivo might be racist (it's rare though) but they are polite, so they won't say anything face to face.
Lots of xenophobia, but this country has also taken in a lot of migrants, so it's understandable. Neo-Ottomanism is a threat, though.
The people of Turkey is friendly and hospitable to foreigners most of the time. They don't have any problem with Christians, Jewish, Greeks, Kurds, Armenians, Americans or etc. ; but there are some issues between Turks and anti-Turks/Islamophobics.
If you don't show your hatred to Turks, they will be really nice and friendly to you.
From there, and now that we don't have such a term called "race." Kurdish or Kurd is not a race. It's an ethnic group and yes Alevis and Kurds have been discriminated against but it has gotten better over the years. However, with Erdogan's new regime Turkey has gone back with women's rights and minority groups.
Pretty much the biggest jerks on the planet, I've never encountered a Turk who didn't go into a Roid Rage when I said something. Unbelievable that they want to get into the EU, when 60% of them has already flooded the EU.
Lebanese in Lebanon are racist but Lebanese in Sierra Leone, Brasil, El Salvador, Colombia, Senegal, Mexico, Ivory Coast are not racist, funny right?
We Lebanese are racist because we are not exposed to immigrants in Lebanon. In Lebanon, we don't have much immigrants from other countries, but we go to countries that are mostly black & hispanic which we learn how it's like to be in their shoes as a minority, so there you have it.
Seriously?!?!?!? Talk?!?!? Then Why then they don't let the liad and maid to swim in the swimming pools at hotels and beachs?! Why Indians and Pakistanis are not allowed to work in Lebanon and live?!? And Why maids and laids are not allowed to walk at night?!? This is UnRasict Thing?!?!? Tell me the truth!
The most racist country ever among all Arab countries.
Fairly tolerant and secular country in Middle East.
Honestly, very underrated country. I've been living there since I was 3 and honestly belongs up there with Scandinavia, etc. in terms of quality of life, and tolerance, really. So yes, the government is acting really unfairly towards refugees, but the people who are already there are quite well integrated, and it is one of the least islamophobic and racist countries in the world, according to surveys. But they still get a bad rep, and that's sad.
Honestly pretty fine in terms of islamophobia and racism. Better than most surrounding countries. Very underrated but this is a very tolerant country. Even our far-right is pretty moderate. They're more moderate than most republicans, I would dare say.
You must visit France and meet the French people.
A very well integrated non-racist and tolerant country.
Well, if you're a foreigner, regardless of which country you come from, you're basically put even above the citizens, especially if you're white cause y'know, we're still mentally colonized and eager to please. But, on a serious note, don't worry about racism, we're pretty friendly.
Kenya is non-racist.. Unless you're Kenyan. Most times a white client or a client with a foreign accent will get served before the locals.
Kenya is like Lebanon but Skin colors only differentiate!
We love visitors, except for terrorists that is.
YES! Indonesian are very friendly! As long as you are not a Chinese. Being a muslim also helps. If you are a Chinese, then prepare a bit more money so that you can live with the upper class. If you are not a muslim, then aim for at least the middle class.
I have many friends here, they are brown, black, white or yellow skin but they receive and welcome me very well
I think it generally depends on where you go. I come from Suffolk and it has gotten more tolerant, I think the majority of racism is more against Eastern European's and Muslims, not as much black people, but of course the older generation has its beliefs. It's generally really accepting of mixed heritage and can be fetishised a lot, especially when it comes to the idea of mixed race babies - it can be a little too much. Although mixed race people are seen quite highly because of their looks. I think it is generally as a whole an accepting country but the deep routed issues are against Muslims and Eastern Europeans. Older people can be in the closet racists, but I think it all depends on whether people are adhering to a "stereotype" to whether they will accept a particular person or not.
I have never been called racist slurs or targeted because of my race in Britain. Not once. I might be in the minority since a few people have said they have been targeted but I've personal never experienced it.
I'm British, no one has ever been racist to me but my family has severely had racism. This country is very racist depending on the part of the country, for example, say if you're living in East Anglia, you're very likely to be hit by racism.
Very racist. As a woman of mixed origins, I've been spat on by white men; I was called a gypsie by one as well.
The U.S. is clearly a leader in anti-racism, which is what all the fuss is about nowadays. Americans are among the most sensitive in the world when it comes to racism, with frequent accusations of cultural appropriation, inconsiderate vocabulary, stereotypical logos, etc. Cancel culture is the new rage. But no major society is free from racism and other prejudices.
People seem to not realize that it is not a country that is racist. People are racist. Anywhere you go there will be racist people, but just because people of a country are racist does not mean that the country is racist as a whole. Yes there are racist people in the U.S. but not everyone is, in fact the majority of people are not. We are one of the most racially diverse countries without a doubt. There is a reason it was at one point called the "melting pot", different nationalities, races, ethnicities, and so on all poured into the U.S. and mixed. People seem to put the few bad things on a pedestal despite how much the good of the U.S. out weighs the bad. They don't realize how much worse some countries are out there because if they did they wouldn't be complaining over such little issues.
Why is it that that people are seldom to say anything even remotely nice about America? Is it because we're the most powerful nation? 7 out of 10 remarks made about the US and American people are hateful insults, I'm so sick of it as an American citizen. We're not the perfect country, we have problems, I get that, but we've also done a lot of good as a nation. We elected a black president twice, yet heads from piss ant countries like New Zealand and Australia call us racist, when racism is a problem in their countries too. The world needs to get over their anti-American bigotry.
some people are racist, but it's mainly because it's ...
a) such a big nation
b) freedom of speech. racist people say racist things, and people can't do anything about it
c) freedom of press. I bet the other countries have racist attacks and shootings, but you never hear about those because they don't have freedom of press, so the news has to cover it up and fake it. the reason you hear so much news about racism in the us is because there is so many people, and freedom of speech and press. minus those things, and racism would still be the same, but no one would know about it.
d) all of the above.
yes the answer is d.
A country with very nice people.
No real issues in Sri Lanka.
With many Sri Lankan friends, I can say that Sri Lanka and its people are very nice
I am french, I live in this country since 10 years, and I have never been subjected to racism whatsoever...
Cambodia is non racist. Khmer Culture and Buddhism Taught Cambodian about loving and respect to all race in the world.
