The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

India can be racist, but their racism is not as worst as a lot of Arab countries.

Unfortunately you can't do anything about racim!

Uneducated ugly people - ndia2

At least India is showing their TRUE COLOURS!

2 Israel Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

Yes this country should be the most racist country in the world with united states they racist to muslims

Yes. There is a racism factory, everywhere around the world.

They think they are "The Chosen People" which gives them the excuse to commit genocide against Palestinians to take back a land which doesn't belong to them. - lolnoman4

They look like they play the race card game way too often.

3 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

They hate black people. Had a friend from Kenya who should have stayed there 1 year, but came back after 2 weeks because people despised him. Even taxi drivers wouldn't accept him as a client. - Cappuccino

They are always biased, arrogant, indecent. You can understand them if you review 2002 soccer world cup.

They openly hate blacks. They educate kids at school to hate Japanese.

I am studying in South Korean now and they are very racist even the Professors. I have send a notice to my colleagues back home never to exchange here.

4 Qatar Qatar Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign country located in Southwest Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

I'm Qatari and I agree that some people in Qatar are racist But not to the extreme. Just because some people in the country are racists doesn't mean that they are all the same. I personally stand against racism and I know that there are many people in Qatar are against it. Gradually we change and develop our way of treating other races. I strongly disagree with Qatar being the no. 1 racist country in Asia

I strongley disagree the people there are very nice and they are awesome and very polite so that is my opinion when I went to Qatar

5 Afghanistan Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Afghanistan people are very rude, stuck up, hypocrites, very lazy and this is why America is in war with Iraq as well as Afghanistan (Wait! Are they? I'm not sure).

Afghanistans and all Arabs are more racist than Indians.

Afghanistan's are commonly known to have pure misery and rudeness in their hearts. They're just as aggressive as both Iranians and especially Iraqis.

Some Pashtuns are raised to think they are better then everyone, they hate Hazaras for looking "Chinese" and Tajiks for being light skin.

6 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

Chinese people are NOT pure racists. They're kind hearted and down to Earth.

Chinese people are cunning.

I am Chinese, I can tell you that China isn't racist against black people, jews etc, but they just hate when people keep trying to gain independence from China, its not really their fault, if you don't know anything about china then don't rate on stereotypical views, please. Yes, I know China banned uyghur education and tibet is literally one of the least free countries in China but Chinese people aren't that racist and don't really hate any kind of people, if there were some people who hate other races, it will probably be americans. No, they don't hate blacks, these misconceptions are thanks to the americans who hates chinese and are racist against black people.

Excuse me, but I am Chinese and no one insults me like that. I know for a fact that Chinese people aren't racist. Maybe some are, but...

7 Jordan Jordan Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River.

Jordan is one of the best countries in the world they are a
Littlebit anoying but they have a stronge Army with a powerful King and the best place to visit in Jordan is Aqaba and when you go to Jordan you will feel safe

8 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

No feeling, no feeling at all is like racism, me, personally, I have faced a lot of racism situations in turkey, life here is so cruel, spiritually being devastated every single day in this country, they always, I mean always, throwing some racist words and phrases to you no matter where you come from, just because you don't look like them, without saying a single word, nor a look; they're always ready to make some comments about you personally, you're costume, you're language, and every thing about you, maaan, I need a whole page in a newspaper to write and explain my self in it, just made me hate my whole life and made feel like I'm none.

Some Turkish people are nice, some are rude.

Turkey is one of the most racist countries of the world. 4 of the 5 parties in parlament support oppression of the kurds. The parties AKP, MHP, Iyi Party and CHP all have followers or members of the grey wolves, a very racist movement that supports the oppression of non turkish people and the turkifikication of non turkish people. There existed and exist numerous laws against non-turkish language. Leyla Zana has been in prison for 10 years because she spoke in kurdish in favor of the fiendship of kurds and turks. many people have received juridical accusations because they have declared publicly their support of peace between kurds and turks.

9 Myanmar Myanmar Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country's largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains more.
10 Lebanon Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun . It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, more.

A very stuck up country.

They always start issues, especially Muslims.

Lebanon and/or other Arabian countries should be number one instead of India.

Lebanese people are a little bit nice, but not so much.


The Contenders

11 Syria Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.
12 North Korea North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

This should be number 1.

North Korea is very weird.


This country threatens to nuke SK, Japan, and russia. they say that americans are evil and that the rest of the world has ruined it

13 Iraq Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. more.

Iraq should be number one instead of India!

Muslim people are racist, especially Arabs.

Muslims are full of hatred, even Iraqis.

Iraq is very racist and very aggressive.

14 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Some Japanese people are racist, some not.

It's more xenophobic than racist. Japanese people have an ideal drummed into them from birth that they are the supreme race and others should be feared for the bad influence they have on their perfect way of life. Foreigners will always be outsiders and never truly accepted as part of their society because they cannot comprehend the intricacies of Japanese culture.

Very Xenophobic. - o201j

An absolutely racist country, why even deny it.

15 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. more.

Iran isn't acutually racist. People here are actually very friendly. For one, people actually greet you there, and just wave. The race issues that they do have come from the fact that they are not very diverse. Almost all are ethnically Persian. And do not call a Persian an Arab, they hate each other, and will take extreme offense. Even as a Muslim, I say the reason it has it's several issues is because it is a religious government. Religion cannot be in politics under any circumstance.

Sorry for my english...
I'm Iranian. We're not racist.
Actually We respect to all people around the world and we're hospitable to tourist in our country and love them. We don't think persia is the best phylum by the way. - Mona_rs

They are very nice when I went to Iran the people let me inside their houses and gave me some of delicious Iran food and they are very polite and very kind

Iranian are racist they dislike/hate dark skin or asian looking people but they worship white people

16 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.

I rarely see racist people here. - starryrcad

I was a daughter of foreigner, I am japanese-indonesian, I have a pale skin and people often called me corpse or even make fun of me and my family, as you know that in indonesian history, japan invaded indonesia, but I was just trying to be friends but they mocked me and told me to go back to japan ;-;

You guys say some about Indonesia not racist because you guys never feel like us

Like the white people like me and the black people I born and grew up there and my entire life people so racist to me like they always ask why I'm white why you that why you this I can't stand it no more and kid in Indonesia is really disrespectful to the older so for you say Indonesia its not racist well you want to think about itu again

Just look at what the government here has been doing to the native peoples of West Papua since 1963, killing over a half million of them and you will think they should be number 1.

17 Singapore Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

They treat white people well enough, so most are completely unaware of it. But be brown or poor, and the way Singaporean society treats you becomes radically different.

I have loads of friends from other races, how is sg even racist

18 United Arab Emirates United Arab Emirates The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates or the UAE, is a country located at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.

One of the countries where you find citizen exclusive services. These disgust me. The amount of time you're required to have your ID checked in UAE is more than the count of your hair strands.

I am an christan Indian labour, I lived in UAE (Dubai) from 1990, and the people there are so kind, and not racist at all. Although, I am not Muslim, they invite me to eat beside them in ramadan for a whole month.

19 Palestine Palestine

Don't the let zionist propaganda fool you.

Palestine, not racist to anyone... except the Jews, of course

Palestine is the most racist and anti semetic country since the nazis

20 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

Monarchism creates class dictatorships.Its another holdover from dark ages.

Due to the monarchical system, the wealthy folk here are more snobby and egocentric than any French person. As well as some of the most pious and devout religious people. And I'm not saying that as an attack people, me and my family are sunni Muslims from Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

Saudi Arabia some people are racist but not all I'm Saudi and I stand against racism and many Saudis do infact many Arabs do please understand that

21 Malaysia Malaysia Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.

Seriously, this country should be number 1. They hate dark skinned people and treat them like animals.

Malaysia is a racist country especially in the kuala lumpur!

If you are are white, Malaysians will treat you as some sort of a God. If you are dark, Sorry bro!

I don't know why many malaysian hate bangla.And they always said we most back to our countries

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Philippines are actually quite nice.

Stupid and racism. They know nothing about the world outside of them. I had a maid from there she came from Philippine's capital city and didn't even know what is the Air conditional yet they think they are so great and they were arrogant to their master - yanzchenthebest

That's true! I'm filipino and if you are reading this, never visit Manila, because all stupid, racist, ignorant, bastards people are there! not all filipino's are racist, that depends on the place where you stay.

We don't want you in OUR nation

28 Nepal Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. more.

Some Nepal's are nice, some not.

Nepal's are very stuck up and boring people.

Racism here is inside the country men.. It's not how we treat foreigners but it's how we treat our individuals. Every caste or ethnic group thinks they r superior than others.. But beside this there's big discrimination between madhesis and pahadis.. I wont say only pahadis discriminate but it's more from them.
