How Racist Is Sweden? by 9ja2sweden: 10:27pm On Dec 14, 2021
When you're trying to relocate to another country as a black person, one question to ask is how racist the host country is towards us, black people.

We cannot say because we're tired of situations in our country and in our honest search for a better life, we fall into the hands of people that hate us to the level of wanting to kill us.

That will be like jumping from frying pan to fire.

And racism was also one of the issues on my mind when I was considering which country I wanted to study in.

Now, there's one thing that Sweden did that endeared me to the country.

3 years ago, Sweden ran a campaign where anyone from any country of the world could call a number and speak with a random Swede.

Yeah, it was real.

The way it worked was, you call a special number and you'd be immediately routed to speak with a random Swedish person, just any Swede in the country going about their day.

No other country has ever done that.

The campaign has closed now, but it demonstrated to me how to open Sweden is towards people of other nationalities, no matter where they're from.

Another thing they did was quite remarkable.

At the height of the Syrian refugee crisis in 2015, Sweden received over 160,000 refugees from war-torn Middle East countries, looking for protection.

Alongside Germany, Sweden was one of the most preferred European destinations for refuge-seeking immigrants from Syria.

These were people from mostly Muslim backgrounds and Sweden opened its arms to them.

Swedish society is largely atheistic, most Swedes do not care about religion but there is freedom of religion.

Everyone is free to practice whatever religion they choose. There are churches here and there are mosques as well.

Now, am I saying there's no racism in Sweden?

Of course not.

Racism exists in every country of the world.

However, the fact is, the majority of humans are good beautiful people, and Swedish people are not an exception.

Follow me on this thread as tell you so much about the benefits of relocating to Sweden.

Some of the topics I will be discussing in the coming weeks are

1. 3 reasons why this process is easy
2. What's the next step to take
3. The two important websites to know
4. Required documents
5. These shouldn't stop you
