Top 10 Least Racist Countries
The Top Ten
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.
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.
I want to move out of America because I was racially profiled at a party one time earlier this year at a Rec Center because a volunteer was thinking I had a gun and I'm a white guy and I had a terrible experience at that Rec Center so later once I became 35 I might need to move to New Zealand because America has a racial profiling problem that is so out of control even citizens are mistreating the disabled the same way and that's why I want to move out of America so badly
White and indigenous people in NZ seem to get along much better than they do in America, Canada and Australia.
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
Unless you are a gay man that is... - PerfectImpulseX
It has like 2000 people and it is tiny. What do you expect
I'm canadian and couldn't vote for canada on this list. Lol. So I voted for Iceland as I haven't seen many racists there - CheesyNachos
They have less than 1 percent minority population, which in their case amounts to only a few thousand people total.
Nobody hates anyone in Iceland - Dvafan2
They have some pretty good water! Also, they have a nice flag. 9/10 would recommend!
Seriously?! I am Middle Eastern, There are people being racist to me by calling me a terrorist and making me left just because of my race. I'm Serious! Stupid bullies trying to make me left out!
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.
It is worse, by far, than the USA. The most racist crap I have ever heard, like old school sheet and burning cross commentary, are from Canadians. I do not buy this ranking one bit. - Annapolis1
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.
I don't agree with this at all. I saw a video on YouTube about a Canadian couple (especially the woman), was telling the tourists (I think he's Afghanistan) to go back to his country, you don't belong here and that happened at the bar. It was terrible!
This is Numbers 1 and that's hat it is
Best country in the world
They have a hostile person who discriminates for president, as of less than a year ago.
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.
Did not abolish slavery until 1888.
I have never suffered any kind of prejudice because of my color or nacionality in Brazil
It looks like those Germans are no longer a Nazi solider nower days. Oh wait... It's because Hitler' is dead. That's why!
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.
Some Germans are actually pretty nice.
Germany is a very diverse county
Pakistanis are the least racist, at least from the list provided. Never met a racist Pakistani before
Incredible people with LARGE heart! I am dutch and lived in Pakistan for 8 life changing months. Warm welcoming people with no concept of racism. A truly diverse breed of humans open to all races. And some of the most intelligent people I've ever met..!
People were very nice, no racism at all with any race of human on planet
There may be some effect of being part of India but they ( Pakistani ) don't believe in these old backward traditions.
Why is Australia below America? Australia is more tolerance than America.
A racist country with a high tolerance of a diversity country.
Well... You do realized that some of them can be pretty racist. But of most of them a PURE KIND, DOWN TO EARTH AND ARE VERY FRIENDLY.
It is quite tough for a person from Middle Eastern countries to live here
Madagascar is a blasian (black asian mixed) country. The central highlands is more Asian and the people in rest of the island are darker. So it's ok those
They like indians and chineses 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.
Denmrk is such a peaceful place ✌️
White our government May be harsh, I would say that we all want too treat foreigners equally at least were 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
Well, if you're a foreigner, regardless of which country you come from, your basically put even above the citizens, especially if you're white cause y'know were still mentally colonized and eager to please. But, on a serious note, don't worry about racism, we're pretty friendly
Best country but we are attacked by terrorists sadly to say but here we do not discriminate
Kenya is like Lebanon but Skin colors only differentiate!
We love visitors, except for terrorists that is.
The most racist country ever among all Arab countries.
They only hang out with their own kind.
Not really, but that's their downfall.
As a Lebanese, I kind of disagree.
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.
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 islamophobis and racist countries in the world, according to surveys. But they still get a bad rap, and that's sad.
Pas faux mais quand même il y a assez bcp de racisme par rapport au flicks et les gens d’autre couleur ke blanc.
China, Russia, and North Korea are being the enemies viewed by now. But I think the true enemies are The Islamic State and Turkey...
Did not abolish slavery until 1882.
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.
Yo what? I am living Turkey since when I am birth I never see racism in my country, to nobody black brothers, Korean brothers, kurd brothers to no body if u vote Turkey you are racist and facist
I have many friends here, they are brown, black, white or yellow skin but they receive and welcome me very well
There are almost no whites or blacks here only Asians, why is this even on the list?
The best multicultural country in the world(trust me! )
The most friendlist country in the world
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Let it be known that the Dutch sent the first Black and Asian singers to Eurovision song contest in the 1960s!
My best friend is Dutch and he is the kindest person in the world! I swear to God anyway!
I have stayed there for some time now they are nice people
America is still racist very racist
Really? This country has its own racist terrorist group that murders citizens of color and is not held accountable by the government because some of its high ranking officials, judges, and police are also members of this terrorist society. America is one the most racist places to live and the worst part is that the citizens and the powers that be will not admit it. If it can't be admitted that a problem even exists in the first place, then how can it be solved?
Lol the fact that Donald Trump is winning the Republican Party indicates this country does not belong on this list.
America has been the least racist and most diverse since its beginning. Many on the list for least racist do not really have a large group of minorities or diversity that they have to deal with and when you are basically a Nation of just one or two races you don't have grasp on whether you are racist 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.
Really? Not racist. Bet you never travelled to UK as a middle Asian
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 your 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.
Cambodia is non racist. Khmer Culture and Buddhism Taught Cambodian about loving and respect to all race in the world.
I am french,I live in this country since 10 years,I have never been subjected to racism whatsoever...
With many Sri Lankan friends, I can say that Sri Lanka and its people are very nice - Homespuncow
A country with very nice people.
All religions days are public holidays
No real issues in Sri Lanka.
I was born and raised in South Africa. I'm black and not racist at all. To those who keep mentioning the genocide of white farmers- are you from South Africa? If you are then you should know the reason behind that: two recent incidents are of white farmers putting a black man in a coffin, with a snake ( the video is all over the net) and another incident is of a white farmer who shot and killed a 12 year old, black boy because he "thought" the boy was a monkey. There are many other incidents of white farmers harming black people, which I won't get into (google is there for a reason) therefore, some black people saw it fit to retaliate, hence the "genocide". In my opinion South Africa is a rainbow nation with racism on both sides; there are racist blacks and whites. I've had an encounter with an Afrikaans man, I will not go into detail about it but long story short I ended up in tears for a whole day.I was 17, at the time. To the person who said being white in South Africa is like ...more
South Africa is one of the LARGEST when it comes to racism. Against WHITE people too. The genocide of white farmers is horrendous. This country is actually rated as number 1 of being the most racist country on other websites.
Because we understand what it feels like to be discriminated against. So we try our best not to let others feel the same.
I am American and the acceptance and tolerance towards other races and ethnic groups are just amazing in South Africa. It seems like these people here don't see any race or difference. thanks to their acts and policies.
People in Mali are very honest and love to share what they have, but foreigners have been kidnapped and even killed.
Most African countries have an acceptance for all races
Yeah it's not openly racist but some countryside people prefer whites over browns. But most don't care really.
Most of the people there aren't Racist.. They are friendly.. I am from Australia and I went there.
I am from Bangladesh, Living from 24 years. I have visited many district in this country. But There are no racism in this country. Here anyone is accepted. People lives in happily.
Peaceful country! Everyone is busy with themselves. Does not care which colour you are!
What about the tourists who were attacked? I'd love to visit. So much to see. So much history and the food looks great, but am afraid. They were throwing gas on clothing and setting the tourists on fire.
The least racist country ever. Honestly never even knew there was such thing as racism until I left the country to go to Switzerland. It's crazy how racist all these places are compared to Egypt
The country of people, very tolerant people. They accept everybody and welcome them, very beautiful people.
Not a single racist person there never seen a racist
This should be the top one in the list.. Filipinos are warm hearted people.. Very welcoming and hospitable. They are very glad and happy if there's a foreigner visiting in their place.. All the people are approachable and respectful. You'll not just enjoy the place but also the people..! It's more fun in the Philippines..!
Philippines welcome different races wholeheartedly: whether you're black or white. They treat both races the same equal way.
They didn't even care whether you are black or white, they treat them both in the same way and I haven't experienced racism here..
Philippines are very lovely people.
I'M BLACK AMERICAN LIVED IN IRELAND FOR FOUR YEARS AND NEVER HAD A RACIST EXPERIENCE. I'm sure there are people out there that are close-minded in Ireland like all places, but overall people in Ireland are friendly and welcoming to all races.
Ireland is one country were you can just get a pint and be friends. While it was abused by Britain in the past we have often tried to leave that in the past but some don't think like that you will encounter racism no matter were you go in the world but probably least here.
1916? Goes a tad further back than that.
Formed in 1916, alright so 😂
These people are one of the warmest hosts toward others in the whole world
Serbs are really great people to party with, they like offensive jokes but not to be mean - more like an icebreaker.
In Serbia there is no racism, they love all races and nations.
Serbians are one the most down to Earth people.
The country has completely given up with it’s conquests and slave trade and is now one of the most race accepting countries!
Portugal is mostly white, but aoyher races are very welcomed here. People there might stare at people of a different race, due to curiosity not with preconception.
Portuguese people are quite nice.
Most Chinese are nice and friendly. China is not a bad country, nor is the best country.
I haven't met anyone that was racist in China ever in my life. Not really sure why people consider China really racist but the US is probably in a worse condition
They have done some terrible stuff to Hong Kong. In thirty years, there will be a genocide in Hong Kong.
Never met a racist chinamen. They always tell how great other nations are and how we (china) could learn from them.
A beautiful country with beautiful people.
It's just like Ireland only with pirates and rampant AIDS. Also one of the leading countries in western Africa for murders of non-Africans.
Not racist at all. The people are amazing there. I'm not even Bosnian but I have been there with my wife and it was amazing.
Nice people, great hosts. They love foreigners.
Too neutral cause I've seen left and right parties about racial protests. - zirukurt01
I know they think themselves as a white people and that is why they hate Asians. They hate Korean so badly. I can't understand why because historically, Korean may hate Japanese but Japanese shouldn't. I don't really get why they hate same Asian so much. but it was awkward to see the the march of Korean haters.
Japanese are very peacefull.
Japanese people are OK.
True we don't say bad things about Others - Jufin
One of the most racist counties.
Israeli doesn't play the race card game like a black person. That was a bit mean.
Most racist actually not least
Why is Israel even on the list? Like it is such a racist country.
The concept of racist does not really exist they treat foreigners with such good manners I thought I was a king, lol. I'm not even white
I agree... no matter how you look it doesn't really matter...as long as you have money, even worst, it doesn't matter how u got the money apparently, your good to go to be accepted anywhere...it is almost as bad as racism but it's not a good feeling nevertheless...Not to deny the fact that racism doesn't exist...it does, but maybe not as much as the neighbor (Dominican Rep).
When 90% of the population is considered a majority of African descent and indigenous descent, racism has little to feed it. Classism is the monster here.
They have learned to appreciate human lives no matter the origins... So much that they put aside native Haitians
Most racist country in the world
Targeted and discriminated by other countries and named one of the least racist countries in europe
One of the reasons this is not a racist country is that people are not sensitive. Discrimination is not based on race, but instead, social status.
Tourist may be murdered in every country, but NOT Australia.
It was...but then there were a slew of tourists murdered, now I am afraid to visit.
This country Is not racist and is the best country Ever!
I do not know why is lower than Mexico. The Spaniards at least did not burnt German's flag
Spain is one of the least racist countries I've ever been to. People here are white, but there are also other people living there like gypsies, Latin Americans, Moroccans, Chinese people and Romanians. So there's a little diversity they are used to. Very recommended country.
