Top 10 Least Racist Countries

The Top Ten
1 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. ...read more.

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.

2 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. ...read more.

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.

3 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Now that Stephen Harper is out, I do feel things will change. Look at what Trudeau has done already. He's been trying to do justice to the natives, he's been housing thousands of refugees, and he's trying to bring happiness to this country. Harper was the opposite. There is still racism here, but honestly, what country doesn't have racism?

I am Canadian and I am not racist. None of the people I work with are racist. We are all different races and have to work together. Some old people (over 70) are, but it's ignorance and just talk. They don't generally mean any harm.

No doubt it should be on this list. Unlike our neighbour in the south, we have multiculturalism instead of racism. That makes us superior as a country.
Remember: Diversity is Canada's strength

I love how open Canada is to all people. I, myself, am in the process of moving here, and it is a lot easier to move here without a easier aura.

4 Netherlands The Netherlands, informally Holland, is a country located in north-western Europe with overseas territories in the Caribbean. It is the largest of four constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Netherlands consists of twelve provinces, and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the ...read more.

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.

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!

5 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

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).

Sweden is more tolerant than all the countries above it. And France is higher?! French people are so rude and racist

6 Denmark Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It is the most populous and politically central constituent of the Kingdom of Denmark, a constitutionally unitary state that includes the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the North Atlantic Ocean. European Denmark is the southernmost ...read more.

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.

7 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island country and city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It lies about one degree of latitude (137 kilometres or 85 miles) north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, bordering the Strait of Malacca to the west, the Singapore Strait to the south, the South China Sea to the east and the Straits of Johor to the north. The country's territory is composed of one main island, 63 satellite islands and islets, and one outlying islet, the combined area of which has increased by 25% since the country's independence as a result of extensive land reclamation projects. It has the third highest population density in the world. With a multicultural population and recognising the need to respect cultural identities of the major ethnic groups within the nation, Singapore has four official languages; English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil. English is the lingua franca and numerous public services are available only in ...read 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.

Least Racist country ever. People here sees each other as equals, and equal opportunities are given to all

Pro: a multi culture country with well educated people, no racism in singapore.

Con: expensive country to live

I Lived in sg for the first 12 years of my life... the people are very nice irrespective to gender or colour

8 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers (3,300,000 sq mi) and with over 214 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, ...read more.

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.

I am Brazilian and I should say that our people is very mixed, we have lots of cultures and lots of races...

Brazil is definitely super tolerant to all races. Everyone is nice to everyone.

Brazil is innocent

9 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It shares land borders with Sweden to the northwest, Norway to the north, and Russia to the east, with the Gulf of Bothnia to the west and the Gulf of Finland across Estonia to the south. Finland covers an area of 338,455 ...read more.

11 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are located in Pakistan.

Pakistan? Rank 11? No, rank 2, the people here are really nice, even if you are a Hindu, even if you originate from India, they will still treat you and help you if you are in need, this country is beautiful.

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!

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.

12 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Honestly, do you guys think that Germany still has maniacs running around and killing Jews. I mean, maybe that 1 in 1,000,000 chance lunatic, but really?

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.

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

13 Iceland Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that ...read more.

They have less than 1 percent minority population, which in their case amounts to only a few thousand people total.

14 Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea, officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia.
15 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and ...read more.

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.

Australia should be above America.

16 Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Northwestern Europe. The country is bordered by the Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest, and the North Sea to the northwest. It covers an area of 30,689 km2 (11,849 sq mi) and ...read more.
17 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

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.

U.K. Is very un racist unlike India and usa

British people are quite nice.

18 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, ...read more.

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.

19 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

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.

20 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. Lebanon is situated in the middle of the fertile crescent on the eastern Mediterranean sea overlooking Europe, North Africa ...read more.

Fairly tolerant and secular country in Middle East.

21 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 ...read more.
22 Madagascar Madagascar, officially the Republic of Madagascar, and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Southeast Africa.

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.

23 Portugal Portugal (est.1152), officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located mostly on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain. Its territory also includes ...read more.

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.

24 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

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.

Ireland is the best

25 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

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.

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.

Tons of people claiming America doesn't belong on here, yet if you bothered to look around the world you'd see we are the most culturally diverse nation on the planet. Social media makes you believe it's bad, but the reality is we are quite tolerant compared to other nations. Haters should try traveling abroad before posting.

The media plays a HUGE role in trying to mark America as racist. When in fact, it's not. The media pits people against each other. There are TONS of black and white people that are successful in America. Along with other races. There will be racism in EVERY country. Racism has existed LONG before America was even formed.
