Top 10 Least Racist Countries
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
They have less than 1 percent minority population, which in their case amounts to only a few thousand people total.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fairly tolerant and secular country in Middle East.
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.
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.
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
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.
