Top 10 Least Racist Countries

The Top Ten
1 New Zealand 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 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 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 Netherlands

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 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 Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

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 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.

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 Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

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 Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.
10 Switzerland Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. ...read more.

11 Pakistan 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 ...read more.

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.

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..!

12 Germany 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 Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

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 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 Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

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 Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.
17 United Kingdom 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 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 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 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.

Fairly tolerant and secular country in Middle East.

21 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 ...read more.
22 Madagascar 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 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 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 Kenya Kenya Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa and a founding member of the East African Community.

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.

We love visitors, except for terrorists that is.

Best country but we are attacked by terrorists sadly to say but here we do not discriminate
