Top 10 Most Racist Countries in the World

By  |  161 Comments

Racism is an extreme form of xenophobia. Contrary to the popular belief race is not just restricted on geographical difference and describing the genetically different human phenotype, though it was a 19th century definition of race of which  Africans had to face the worst . In 21st century race has come to encompass the vast differences on the ground of language, ethnicity, culture, history, religion and societal affiliation.

According to the more pacifist humanitarian theorists , world is woven with a mix of fabric that gives it its  colorful contour, each weave is different from the other and even if one was to become undone the international fabric will fall into utter disarray. Pretty much explains the contemporary world situation marred by innumerable civil strife and terrorist activities.

Racism on the other hand drives the wedge deeper into these differences and that’s one reason the lines marking one group from another will never be blurred or cease to exist.  What really drives racism is the misplaced belief that members of a certain race share some common characteristics which results in that group being superior or inferior, desirable or detestable

10) India

1 (5)

Should I or should I not? But prior to pointing a finger at Rwandan crisis, American and European hate crimes one needs to have a thorough look at one’s own bloodied records. In the wake of terms like Marathi Manoos, Bihari xenophobia and the incessant Hindu- Muslim division, add to it the slit throat north- south superiority competition, it becomes inevitable.

No matter how much we brag about the incredible India being secular and racially tolerant. The underbelly is encrusted with racist horror stories. Thus, be it the Delhi and Gujrat riots or segregation of north east  Indians not to mention the shiv sena havoc on fellow INDIANS from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, typecasts about Africans and Europeans thus making India a racially intolerant country.

9) Pakistan

1 (1)

Close at heels is the neighboring country Pakistan. Being a Muslim majority country the only internal rivalry that seems to infest it is that of Shia and Sunni Muslims. However it goes deeper than that. There are constitutional safeguards to ensure that no incident of racial discrimination is tolerated. But it’s easier said than done. The government of Pakistan has taken no productive steps to curb it.

Forced conversion and marriage deceit, extreme intolerance towards blasphemy are some facets of racialism in Pakistan. While Americans are still tolerated, people of other countries have to face the worst of it. For years gathering support through anti-India stance has been the main tactic of political parties in Pakistan. However, witnessing two democratic terms the situation might tilt towards a good change.

8) Russia

1 (2)

Racism in Russia is often targeted towards those people who are deemed as not being ethnically Russians. Fanatic racists are extremely anti- Caucasians, Africans, Chinese and Jews.  Migrants from these particular races often face racial stereotyping and consequent discrimination which sometimes culminate into hate crimes and gross human rights violation, the apex of which is the rebel war in Chechnya and Dagestan

Even though it is the duty of Russian government to safeguard the right of these minorities and combat this social stigma but it only seems to fail at it oftener than normal. It is also infamous for violating its international obligations under the UN Convention on Racial Discrimination.

7) Israel

1 (9)

Two groups that face the wrath of racial discrimination in Israel are the Israeli Arabs and Palestinians .It stems from the history of the state, back in the post-world war 2 years, when the whole world was unanimously empathizing with the Jews, a state was carved for them.  The Palestinians who were the native residents became refugees in their homeland before being unsympathetically driven out of, what now was the news state of Israel.

While the Israel’s ‘law of return’ which calls for every Jew to be a part of the state. It discriminates against the Palestinians; who were born there in first place. They were brutally cut-off from their own land by the Israelis. A few months back renowned scientist Stephen Hawking supported the academic boycott of Israel.

 

6) Germany

1 (8)

Those who think anti-Semitic feelings died along with the Fuhrer, the contemporary German neo-Nazi ideas could come as a rude shock. These groups think along the very lines of Hitler himself, of a United Germany with its glory restored. Midst the constant lash backs from the government and United Nations, these groups have taken to underground activities.  The National Democratic Party of Germany has been accused of tacitly propagating Neo-Nazi or Neo-Fascist leanings while many organization face legal issues and some like Volkssozialistische Bewegung Deutschlands/Partei der Arbeit, Action Front of National Socialists/National Activists, Free German Workers’ Party, and the Nationalist Front are all indefinitely banned.

5) Japan

1 (6)

Japan albeit boast being a racially tolerant country has no effective restrictions on xenophobic actions, and foreign nationals to speak of. Moreover, foreign nationals are known to have sometimes restricted from certain services and activities. Back in the year 2005, a United Nations report expressed deep concerns about racism in the country and that government recognition of the depth of the problem was not satisfactory. The report identified three groups at the bottom of the pyramidal racial hierarchy structure:  Japanese American, Brazilian Japanese and the descendants of ‘poor’ third world countries. The refugee acceptance record of japan is highly disappointing as well.

4) Rwanda

1 (4)

Rwanda and genocide are most often used in the same sentence due to the ghastly months of April and June, 1994, an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed in the time span of mere 100 days. Most of the people who were brutally murdered belonged to Tutsi ethnicity while the perpetrators of the crime belonged to the Hutu tribe
Rwanda had witnessed Ethnic brutalities in past but this particular event left even the native Rwandans lurching. Tension between the two continues to exist. It’s similar to a hearth waiting for a spark and people continue to sit on an issue on the verge of going off.

 

3) Australia

1 (7)

Almost one half of all Australians were either born overseas or had a parent born in another country and one in five people confessed to have faced some form of racial discrimination. In the year 2009 there was a surge in number of hate crimes targeting specifically Indians. There were more than a 100 reported assault incidents reported by the Indian students out of which 23 had unmistakable racial undertones. Not to mention the Cronulla riots of 2005 which is a beachfront suburb, there were a series of racially driven mob confrontations. Though, the situation has improved comparably in 2013.

 

2) United Kingdom

1 (10)

Did you know how Joker got his scars? He had different theories to justify ‘em but what the epic villain sported in the movie was a ‘Glasgow smile’ also known as ‘Cheshire grin’. Back in the 60’s hooligan firms were intolerant towards foreigners especially Americans which were mockingly called the Yankees. The most common crime was to give an alien the Cheshire Grin.

One need not forget the ghosts of apartheid which are still prevalent. In the year 2004, 87,000 people from black or minority community accepted to have experienced a racially motivated crime. While 92.000 white people also fell victim to racial typecasts.

 

1) United States of America

1 (3)

Racial and ethnic discrimination has become a major issue and embarrassment for United States of America within the International fora.  African Americans, Asian Americans and Latin Americans also European Americans are still disregarded by those who think of themselves as native Americans ( far from the fact that the Red Indians were the original Natives of what we now know as modern America).

Even though America maintains a tolerant outlook  under an African-American leader, ground reality is far from being a homogeneous society, the racial tinges are inextricably infused in the American culture and continues to occur in employment, housing, government welfare programs , education and lending.

        Its funny how you said “we are talking about racism not secularism” and then went on to try to show that India isn’t racist because it is accepting of religion.

    • supppppppp

      Malaysia? they are definitely not really racist.
      and the US should be at top, the inter mixing stirred up high tension and as a minority in the states I can definitely feel that.
      And China? they are absolutely not, race in China is not a major problem and people usually dont talk about it, it is just a cultural thing, they just do not have interest in it, not because it is a hot issue, it is just not a common topic, it is one of the issues where Americans talk about a lot and kind of a forgotten topic in China

        Its not in issue in China because there is no racial diversity. We talk about race in America because we are the most racially diverse country in the world…

    • Ujjwal Sundas

      Countries with Hinduism are the most racists as they are the followers of caste system and untouchability. Hence, India 1st, Nepal 2nd and Bangladesh 3rd, ( the hindus in B’desh follow it till date). Then may be Italy and others ???. From my view point may be US and UK could be least racists.

      I do agree with you more than original list. I think this is not fair to know us or uk as the most racist countries because they are the most multicultural regions .I’m from a middle eastern country and I’m living here. I think if some day the different cultures and races witch are living in america and Europe now want to move in such countries like Malaysia , Arab countries or Israel they would see 100 times more racism and inhumanity in these countries. I’ve never been out of my country but I see and feel how racist these countries are. believe me.

  • cameron

    What a ridiculous list. I guarantee you the most racist countries are those most isolated and with the least amount of immigration/ethnic mixing. Just because there are racial tensions in the UK and the USA doesn’t make them the most racist, it simply is something that can occur when you have people of different backgrounds lumped together in a big melting pot, and these are two very mixed countries. I live in the UK and there is no way that it’s the second most racist country in the world, if it were true London would be in chaos!

    • madeofwords

      ur white. you don’t experience it. duh. in other words, you’re ignorant.

      • WeAreONe

        madeofwords…I’m white. In fact, I’m a white male. In fact, I’m a white Christian male. I am an American (obnoxious arrogant pig), white (cracker ass slave owner), Christian (hypocrite, holier then thou), male (superior sex who deserves to get paid more then a woman). Now that I’ve degraded myself with racist comments, I’ve lived all over the world and have been on the receiving end of racism, directed toward me, many times, all over the world. Here in America, in Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Texas (lol). Don’t allow yourself to get so high and mighty that you think you are above it all, or to think that no one else, other than those of “color”, have been a victim of racism. Based on your comments to “cameron”, you come across as racist and ignorant yourself. You don’t know everyones story so don’t be so quick to judge another. You don’t know his, no more then I know yours. Don’t assume because someone is white that they aren’t victims of racism. Jews are white and look at what the Germans did to them or the Rwandans have done to other Rwandans. Peace.

        • madeofwords

          It’s interesting how I’ve been affected by racism and it’s “always” white people who do such acts. I live in Canada. I wonder why. I’ve been to an all white school and guess what happened. Then I moved to a diverse demographic and guess what happened, no sense of ignorance, racism is ignorance and fearing seeing the one is better than another and treat such ways. What does this show you. White people are ignorant. There’s a difference between hate and ignorance. MOST (80%) not ALL are NOT AWARE of what OTHER people are going through. I wonder where this HABIT came FROM? UPBRINGING = CULTURE. Yes white people invented and innovated many things, obviously you’ll feel great when you’re in an environment 70% of white background in north america. So you are curious WHAT other colours have contributed to society, you use the past (events) to weigh the present. When a person talks about a problem, when it’s a white problem, it’s labeled a male, but if it’s a person of colour, it’s has to be labelled black, hispanic, or asian right next to the gender so they can associate the problem with the colour.

          • WeAreONe

            It’s interesting that every time this “white” person (me) has been racially discriminated against, it was from Asians, Blacks, Hispanics and other WHITES. It’s universal, meaning ALL kinds of people are guilty of it, everyone. It lives in race, religion, groups, education, social status, and on and on. You are throwing out numbers and statistics that are absolutely made up in your own head and you are stereotyping, everything. You mentioned things about “Habit”, “CULTURE = UPBRINGING” as if to insinuate all “White People” are raised to be racists, but no one else is. Really? That is completely ridiculous.

            You’re comments show me 3 things about you. Number one, you yourself are racists against “White People” because of your own personal experiences. Is that a generational thing that was passed down from your parents because of their experiences or was it learned because of your own situational or personal experiences? Number two, you use those experiences to lump all of one group (whites) in to one category. Number three, because of one and/or two, you yourself show your ignorance on the subject.

            I don’t mean that to be demeaning or to put you down. My comments are only meant to share my perspective, not to hinder yours. Please read on.

            It seems that, based on your comments, you are insinuating that “White” people started racism. That all white people are elitist, fascist, are “NOT AWARE of what OTHER people are going through and the person’s culture”, and are the root of all evil in the world. That is absolutely ridiculous and factually incorrect. Learn more history, experience life…life other then what the liberal media tells you about and shows you. Step outside of the “history” books and learn for yourself. Because most of what you wrote is so one sided, factually incorrect, speculative and narrow minded, you don’t know what you are talking about.

            As far as the labeling of people, you’ve done it, I’ve done it, everyone does it to some extent. Is that racist? No. It’s descriptive. Only when it’s done in a derogatory way is it or could it be considered racist. “WHITE” people always “associate a problem with a colour”? Really? Come on, man.

            You assume that whites are not stereotyped but EVERYTHING you’ve written about white people is a stereotype.

            I agree that there should be a better balance of color taught in our history books. I agree with the fact that racism comes from fear of the unknown. Look at Rwanda (non-white), the hate that is being perpetrated on the blacks by other blacks. Or Afghanistan, non-white Muslims against other non-white Muslims. Look at the Germans (the “Super Race”) and how they killed 10 millions Jews (white). Look at the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, Asians against Asians. Whites owned slaves in America for 300 years. They bought those slaves from black Africans who captured and enslaved other black Africans. Don’t sit there and preach that “80%” of this or “100%” of that is the cause for race issues. Or that White Politicians are the only corrupt politicians. Barack Obama (to name a few) is just as much if not more corrupt then any of his “white” predecessors. How long will people of “COLOR” continue using race, racism and their “plight” as a crutch?

            I don’t know what happened to you and your story. I grew up in the American south during the 1970′s. I never understood why at that young age, I would here the “N” word from my grandmother or father’s family. Why people around me in the 80′s made comments about the “Spics”, “taking over” this, or that. I don’t know how I escaped that, because some of the hero’s and people I admire in my life are men and woman of color. To name a few, Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis and Jackie Joyner Kersee (I love track and field) General Colon Powell (because he did not allow race to interrupt his life, he’s an amazing man), Herman Cain, Dr. Martin Luther King, Mohamed Ali, Bill Cosby, and my first grade teacher Mrs. Washington. People inspire me. Their character, lifts me. Their perseverance and determination push me to be the best version of me that I can be.

            I understand that in today’s world, how a man like Donald Sterling can get banned from the NBA and forced to sell his basketball team for making racist comments. I get that. But, on the flip side, men like Spike Lee and Al Sharpton can go on TV and spout out what ever they like, intended to divide, separate and perpetuate racism and nothing be done or said about them. Both are equally wrong and should be stopped in their tracks.

            You mentioned about being asked “how many people will get shot today”…I’ve got news for you, unfortunately for all us, we all, at some point and time, will be a victim of racism. The question is do we have the integrity, grace and character to rise above it? The question is how do we react to it in a negative light and can how do we overcome it?

            I didn’t like the times when I couldn’t get hired because I was not Hispanic, or hated because I was an American living in Australian, or because I didn’t speak Japanese. I didn’t like the comments or the looks I got when I dated someone outside of my own “race”. I hated it when my own family members would make crude comments about another person who was not white. But those few fools that treated me poorly were the minority. I don’t have statistical data to throw out but from my own personal experiences, the majority of the people were gracious and embraced our differences. That is what makes us come together, not pull us apart. By what I can see, hate lives in the minority, not the majority.

            Look around the world and you will see racism perpetrated against everyone, everywhere, all the time and for every excuse possible. It will never stop because where ignorance lives, fear festers and grows. It seems to me that we both have one thing in common, we hate racism. Therefore, we only have one true choice to make. Rise above it. Be the example for others to follow. That is what we are called to do.

            I wish you the best in your life. Peace.

          • stjacobs

            I have to say i understand where ‘madeofwords’ is coming from, being a black man and all..especially from Nigeria..hell! even most blacks are racist to Nigerians ‘lol’ so don’t get me started on people from other continents. but i completely agree with ‘WeAreONe’,

            i can go into how i have experienced it all and how the shocking rise of UKIP and other far right political parties in the 21st century Europe worries me greatly about the future of humanity, adding to the already impressive arguments about the problems of the past and present sharing my views and blames when i know very well that no one is immune from blame.

            i believe humanity is becoming insane “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” pointing fingers instead of looking in the mirror and asking what can i do to help humanity grow, what can i do to help solve the problems that i know obviously exists, how can i raise awareness and break the circle of madness.

            people are still dying of hunger, curable diseases, lack of clean water, global warming killing the planet, and yet people still care about color of skin, what language you speak even accents. i have to say .. i am disappointed in humanity, it seems the older we grow, the more childish we become, fighting/killing over whose religion is better, who is raciest and who is not…the truth is that you are more likely to become a raciest while trying to prove others are.

            ‘honesty’ and ‘truth’ are now regarded by many as being naive or cruel, even so called best friends this days would rather lie to you (yes! go on ‘X factor’ you have a very good voice) than tell you the truth. So many married men and women all over the internet looking to cheat, that ofc if they haven’t already cheated on you with your best mates lol (if it not working..break it up and do what you want then) no more trust in the world! sociopaths control the world and psychopaths control it military, those are problems worth spending time on not color of skin.

            anyway my point is that yes! the world needs major surgeries…’don’t just keep talking about it’ become a surgeon and inspire others to do the same. after all we are all human and we all bleed red and sadly i know even if there is only one race in the world they will still find an excuse to hate..because the truth is that we all have it in us to became Monsters or Angels..it all a matter of choice,so please don’t let the past and present mistakes of humanity pave the road to your future, instead learn from it so that you don’t make the same pointless mistakes too and remember only the weak give in to hate, make the choice not to become the abuser because you have ‘been’ or ‘being’ abused. break the circle promote peace and unity!!!

          • Overmind One

            You are so full of it. White people INVENTED racism. They created the divisions of “race”, they created the race groups, they created pseudoscience to give credibility to it, and they used “race” to justify racism, genocide, murder and other sociopathic behaviors. YOU CANNOT EXPERIENCE RACISM. You can only experience reactions to it. What you are callinf racism is actually people of color blaming you for the ACTUAL RACISM created by your ancestors to hurt generations of humans worldwide. You trying to play victim and whining about “reverse racism” (what a joke!) is just making you look pathetic and in denial.

            I’m a black male who was born in the USA and raised in the UK and i agree with WeAreONe on almost all facts pointed out. Hate to say this as it goes against my own nature but…black people perpetuate the hatred and racism as much as whites have done. The issue is that we all need to stop living in the past and accept that in 2014 (going onto 2015) no one should give two shits. Its proven scientifically that we are essentially the same thing under the skin and while i have been subjected to racism, it hasnt soured my view of the race as a whole. Hell, 80% of my dating past has been with those of other races (i know, that in itself fits a stereotype). At the end of the day, i have experienced more racist comment from people of my own race than of those of other races and i still hold no prejudice or hate for these people. I happen to be a big geek who was raised amongst my white counterparts and have always been welcomed amongst my white friends families, often hearing “You are the most genuine, polite and respectable guy ive ever had the luck of meeting” The biggest thing that needs to be torn down is the perpetuation of stereotypes…blacks/hispanics/asians/caucasions and all the others i have missed, can all be intelligent individuals. Lol, my rant is done but if there’s one thing you take away from this is, the amount of genuine racist radicals doesn’t compare to those of us who don’t perpetuate the hate. Love and be loved

            my guess is that if you are black, then black people can’t do racist things to you. it’s really a matter of quantum physics.

        • Erhan Caner Yazici

          nice thoughts

        • Bowler Hat

          Your smooth arguments and thought process have a neat and impressive logic but lack a more in depth analysis. It’s clever to turn racism into a black and white issue. No intelligent person would argue that racism is the exclusive trait of the so called “white” race. That would be a silly stereotype. However, I do not believe that a person as obviously intelligent as you are is being sincere to suggest that this is the sum of the black African complaint about racism. The question is not whether you hate me because I’m white or black, pink or yellow in isolated cases. We are all entitled to our private opinions. Indeed, the question is even not whether because you hate my race you attack me, or I can’t rent an apartment from you, or I don’t get a job I’m better qualified for, or any number of other scenarios where a person might be treated differently in isolated incidents. Don’t misunderstand me I am not saying that the latter is right, I’m just saying that it happens and can happen to anyone regardless of being black or white. The real problem is who holds the major balance of power in a nation, a continent or indeed the world. I might hate you but if I have no real power then my hate is feeble at best. There is little if any deeper psychological effect. The real problem is black African countries are at the bottom of the economic and military pile. Further people of black African descent (wherever they may be) are usually, as a whole, the poorest people in the country. The real question is what ideological force (apparently controlled by a small minority of people), if anything, is keeping black African people at the bottom of the economic and military pile and what has kept them at the bottom of the pile for centuries? You yourself have mentioned great black thinkers and athletes. So it’s not that blacks are genetically lazier or lack intelligence. Even if blacks are racist against whites, as a whole, which is highly unlikely, they have no power. They can bark but have no teeth. Even when a country is black run and managed it can still be heavily influenced by nations that have vastly superior economic and military might. If you don’t realise this then think again. I’m not suggesting that black racism against whites is any more palatable, my argument is that its effects are on the surface less profound on the white race. Racism is more frightening when you share a disproportionate amount, of poverty and lack of opportunity in the world so that racism can have a massive profound psychological effect on your race. This is the perspective that makes the racism issue a bigger challenge for black African (wherever they may be) people as a whole in the world. I don’t know what the answer is but I don’t think the starting point is to say that we are all capable of racism so “suck it up”, as you seem to be suggesting. The fact is although the world is generally not fair for anyone, black Africans, and their descendants seem to get it the worst, and this has to have taken and is taking a massive underlying psychological toll on the black race generally. Take a close analysis at access to life saving drugs, education, technology, right across a whole spectrum of serious issues. Further, before you say it, black Africa’s problems are not just down to corruption, diseases and famine. That is again too shallow an explanation. Take a more balanced deeper view yourself instead of flipping the argument around. You are deliberate dumbing down the 2000 pound gorilla challenge in the room. I love all people but there is no denying the bigger psychological challenge of racism for black Africans or for people of black African descent wherever in the world that they may be. We are all one indeed, and whilst the black race has a massively disproportionate share of poverty and oppression we should all be working peacefully together to do something about it. Thank you.

        • Laide Lawal

          I agree with you. You’re all the things you describe yourself to be. You came here looking to be a White hero hoping people would agree with your outlook and in typical white fashion, got upset when they didn’t! Take off your arrogance!

      • Stephen Burke

        you’ve probably only lived in america. you dont experience it. duh. in other words YOU’RE ignorant.

        so you think that if you travel to europe or asia you will experience less racism than in america, the country with one of the most populations in the world? wrong.

        one of the things that makes the U.S. such a strong county is our ethnic and racial diversity. we are taught in school to not be racist, and there is constant news about racism and a lot of awareness. it’s far from perfect, but in countries like china for example, there is absolutely no awareness of why racism is wrong. i’ve traveled to several countries where when a majority of the population are asked about black people they say “they cause all of america’s problems.”

        • AJ Prasad

          Finally some common sense. There maybe racial tensions in the United State but we call ourselves out on it and know that it is wrong. These other countries just accept it. I too feel the author was not born and raised in the USA

          • Tristory

            Hmm you sure American calls out racism when it happens? I think not. The fact is that America was basically built upon racist systems that have never really changed. And right now it’s a very racist situation going on with the killing of black people and nothing being done. And a lot of white Americans walk around all high and mighty as if they are better than everybody especially the one withs money. But racism is not exclusive to white people because everyone can be racist. I see black people be racist against black people but to say American calls people out on racism is not true in my opinion.

          • AJ Prasad

            True, but we share it in our history class and discuss why it was wrong. We acknowledge our wrong doings unlike other nations. As far a violence against races is concerned, There are more crimes committed among people of the same race. IE: More whites kill whites, more blacks kill blacks, etc.

            But in the end opinions are like a holes…….everyone has one.

          • The Oracle of the Pyramid

            Wait, are you sure you know what “racism” means? It means discriminating or otherwise classifying others by “race”. Only one group invented “race” and that is white people. Specifically, Johann Friedrich Blumenbach in 1785. Prior to that, NOBODY belonged to any sort of “race”. People were nationalities. If you were a black skinned person in Italy, you were still just Italian. Same in Greece or Britain. But in 1785, white males invented “races”, and the fun began.

            Go ahead and look up what I just said. The fact is that white people cannot experience racism because they created it. You are not “white”, you are human. Every time you identify as “white” or even think of yourself as a white person, you are reinforcing racism.

          • Tristory

            Excuse me… I hate when people comment on something before understanding the persons point of view. I never said white can be discriminated against I was pointing out the fact that white people are not the only racist people in the world. As I said I have met racist who are black and other minorities that are racist that’s what I was saying. Me as a black person I know all too well the history of racism.

          • cameron

            That is the most ridiculous post on anything I have ever seen EVER 1. Racism is the belief that the human species is divided into different races based on colour, and that these groups have significant genetic differences. You are talking about discrimination. 2. Race is an earlier construct than nationalism (both being artificial), and Italy wasn’t even a united country in 1785, so you clearly don’t know what you are talking about. People have been designating groups of humans based on appearance since time immemorial. 3. You are so adamant that we should not identify as ‘white’ people, yet you use that very term at least three times in your post, contradicting yourself. Caucasians/white people can definitely experience racism just like any other ethnic group can, to say otherwise is just stupid.

        • Laide Lawal

          Other countries don’t claim to be civilized or leader of the world like the USA does. It’s hypocritical to keep claiming civilization when many Whites in the USA behave like untrained animals. Spewing hate, attacking people over race and just being downright nasty. When people of color react to their hate, they call us racist. If you claim to be civilized, act civilized.

      • cameron

        Talk about ignorance. I went to school where whites made up about 5-10% of the students, so I’ve experienced racism, contrary to what this omniscient knowledge you seem to have about my life tells you. Your other comments show that all your conclusions are derived from your own experience, which, not to say is wrong, it doesn’t really show the whole picture. My point is anyone is capable of racism, but it decreases in time as people assimilate (as long as it goes smoothly) and get to know each other, realising that humans are all the same, and its culture that makes us different.

        • Nat

          I believe you are referring to prejudice. racism is a systematic way of oppressing a certain minority, much how the US denied blacks to housing loans, college loans, and work training in the 50s, which is directly tied to the building of the middle class; your personal experiences either being looked at differently are not a systematic oppression or denial of rights given to others. Look at our jails, at e rates of death row inmates, that is racism.

          • cameron

            Racism is the belief that humanity is irrevocably divided into races, some of which have superior characteristics and qualities to others. Prejudice is judging people based on your previous experience with that ethno-cultural group, something we ALL do to some degree; but we are not ALL racist. I can’t say that I know anything about the situation in the US, but my point is that racism is more abundant where people don’t actually interact/assimilate with people of other cultures and ethnicities, thus basing their opinions on hearsay, folklore and deceptive propaganda (this is also the case in the early stages of diversification, before miscegenation and assimilation have a chance to take place). I’m sorry the situation is so bad in the US, but aren’t all those things you mentioned due to racism at the highest echelons of power, and uneven distribution of wealth, rather than the country as a whole having racist attitudes?

      • Sarah

        It doesn’t matter whether you are white or not. I live in London and the African people, Asian people, European people and White people (English) I’ve seen are perfectly happy and I’ve never heard a complaint of being discriminated by anyone. I’m not fully white myself; my mother is from Algeria and my Dad is from Syria, and I have never been discriminated or racially abused. Watch what you’re saying. London has got to be one of the most multi cultural cities in the world.

        • madeofwords

          “I’ve seen are perfectly happy and I’ve never heard a complaint of being discriminated by anyone.” that’s a typical ignorant comment. What’s the first thought you have in your mind when you hear the word ex. “Asian” or “Black” I bet it’s a negative thought. It’s a conditioning (depending on the country you live in) that the society or town you live in will constantly tell you, which you will start to believe. Racism is a social construct. Since I grew up in North America, NA is full of racists and 70% of North America is white. Why do you think it’s a big deal when Obama become a president. The reason why he was a big deal was not about this accomplishments or leadership, but #1 is about the colour of his skin. The media conditions, which is a white dominated environment. Heck Hollywood is one of the most racist industry to for, they feed on stereotypes. Why do you think they pick the most unattractive minority to play certain roles, but pick the best looking white people to play simple roles. You make think white people are good looking people, but there are unattractive ones as well. It’s environmental conditioning, that’s why minorities start to hate how they look because they are conditioned by white looks. and some white people like this so they can feed their ego of being the best race… in an environment thats 70% white of course they’ll think like that. People will always categorize people based on their colour. People are treated differently because of the colour of their skin unless the person has a really good character, which will override the treatment.

      • james thompson

        Maybe ur right we cant judge because i haven’t experienced it. But what i can tell you is that 87,000 figure is tiny. Using population and demographic statistics from Wikipedia that would mean just 1.07% of non-whites or 0.14% of people had experienced a racially motivated crime in their lifetime in the year 2004. If that is not how u would expect the second most racist country to act. Also don’t act like the racial bullying you experienced in school can compare with the genocide committed by other countries LOWER on this list (i.e rwanda) you ass. U really think the racial bullying u experienced is comparable to genocide?

      • Duhi

        No he is actually right. I am black and I can tell you that perhaps some of the most racist countries are the ones with monoethnic groups such as Japan. In addition, other places still have backward caste systems such as India. The US is perhaps one of the most tolerable nations. Your average white american doesn’t have the same level of spite against other groups as your average Japanese or Indian individual in their respective countries.

      • Micheal Duncan

        The US is not more racist than Russia or India

      • Best_Reviews

        People who are not Japanese are not allowed in many places in Japan if you didn’t know. Landlord refuse to rent to people of other races, and can not get citizenship in Japan unless you are Japanese. Ever ask yourself if that’s racist?

        • mpmp

          >can not get citizenship in Japan unless you are Japanese.

          This statement is so untrue. There are a number of non-Japanese people who gained Japanese citizenship.

          • Best_Reviews

            Besides 2 football players on their teams, and a few super wealthy half-Asians, can you actully count all white Japanese passport holders on 2 hand and all black Japanese, well now, there is 1 token. So yes, there is a dozen caucasian humans who have Japanese passport (since they dont allow dual citizenship).

        • みにごりらさん

          they are allowed to live a life in japan unless they have their own job. and most of landlords don’t refuse them. at last, why do you think they non-japanese can have lots of citizenship(like attending the politic in japan)? of course human rights are guaranteed. one of Europe country was robbed of their region by foreigners.

      • estiver gringoz

        yes japan is very racist. but i cant blame on them, most of Japanese people wont even know what does mean the word ”racism”. They will say that foreigners are ”weird” or have ”different habits” or no manners, therefore they will generalize everyone as being gaijins. Japanese TV is so full of racism that its undeniable that they have no concerns of posing as racists. Other thing very clearly in japan is that there is a clearly separation of races, foreigners only stick with foreigners and Japanese with Japaneses, with few exceptions of those Japanese who wants to learn English, but even so, they will restrict their relation ship with only purpose of learning English and nothing beyond that. Or will mix up just with people of countries they want to travel to (US,UK,Germany). The rest will be treated like lower class citizens. Needless to say that there is no anti-racism laws in japan,they don’t recognize racism as crime, they thing these are ”just cultural” differences, no racism! I lived in Japan for sometime until i get my graduation, i noticed that the most hated are Chinese, Brazilians, Filipinos, Koreans and Afro-black people. I think Japan should be the 3rd of this list, being Greece the 1st and Korean the 2nd.

        If you’re not going to contribute to the discussion why say anything at all?

    • Overmind One

      Typical response from an isolated white person. The United States of America is the most racist country on earth. It is the only first world nation (perhaps the only nation) to have “race” institutionalized on the governmental level. Government forms still have Black, White, Asian, Native, etc. Race does not exist. It is a construct, and the United States maintains the construct long after it has been proven that “race” is not real. The only way you are going to know this is true is if you travel OUT of the United States. You will find yourself explaining why the US is so backwards. You are not “white” in Europe. You are merely European. In the UK, perhaps the black/white division does not exist, but I have personally seen the racism against Indians in the UK. This is based in culture though mostly. I do not agree that the UK is anywhere near as racist as the US. But it is still racist. Is this sociopathic behavior where people lacking melanin want to be separate from the rest of Humanity something genetic?

      • cameron

        Isolated white person? I live in London and 90% of my school (and the friends I’ve ever had) were 2nd gen immigrants (parents migrated here) from all over the place, so don’t assume things. I don’t know enough about the situation in the US to comment on what you’ve said, my original contention was with the UK being second. Yes I have also seen the racism against Indians in the UK, as well as Indian on Black, Black on White, Indian on white, and every other type, because racism is ignorance and ANY ethnic group can have ignorant individuals. What makes you think only white people want to separate from other ethnic groups? Also you haven’t been to Europe if you think people identify as ‘European’, unless talking about travelling or the EU, the idea of Europe doesn’t even cross most people’s mind.

    • Bayz

      So the racist countries are those without racial tensions due to isolation?

      The UK does have a lot of racism going on, especially intrinsic systemic racism, and extreme jingoism against continental Europeans, fed mostly by the BBC language of hatred against foreign populations.

      What is true though is that I would not put it on the second most racist country, nor would I put America over Japan, a country where foreigners can’t even get the same benefits as the native Japanese population ever…in my experience America is the least racist of the English Speaking countries I lived in (UK, USA and Australia), with the UK being in the middle and Australia as the worst one, my experiences in aussie land are comparable to those in Russia which are bad but not as bad as the ones in Japan.

      I don’t disagree with the countries that are listed, but the ranking’s order seems a bit off,..

      • cameron

        Yes exactly! Racism is the belief that humanity is divided into races, with genetically specific abilities and traits, and that is far more common a belief in isolated areas where there is very little miscegenation and interaction with other ethnic groups than one’s own. I wouldn’t say this is a blanket rule as some cultures are more tolerant and welcoming than others, but generally, just because they don’t have the opportunity to discriminate and act on their prejudice doesn’t stop them being racist.

        While there is some institutional/street level racism in the UK I am confident that on a person by person basis, people hold less racist beliefs. No way should it be second. You are the first to say it is worse than the US, can I ask where you have lived in both countries to come to this conclusion?

        Also, I agree with most of the countries listed, but Italy, Spain and Portugal should definitely be on it. The US and UK have the most discrimination/racial tension because they have undergone the most rapid demographic changes in the last century due to international immigration and so people have found themselves living amongst different cultures which the average person would find hard to deal with at first; on a person by person basis they hold less racist views than the other countries on the list.

PLUS we have full and absolute legal protection based on race, which a TON of other countries don’t even have.

    • BrA1N Ma!tEr

      ITs good to be a proud american but face it we have neo-Nazis KKK and other racist organizations not only that the U.S has the most disproportion of love (equality of races) There are Plenty of Jobs where a White male would get paid more then another race even though The other race my have the same and possibly better qualifications then others now take this we have protection but under freedom of speech The kkk and the Neo-Nazis are protected So SAY THANKS TO BEING VERY TOLERANT WITH THIS next up do your research before posting stupid shit and bye…

      • Blake

        You fucking dipshit. The US doesn’t even have the highest proportion of hate group members in the world. And you’re totally right, paying a white make a few more dollars than a black male is TOTALLY more racist than GENOCIDE. (that last part was sarcasm is you didn’t pick up on it)

        Congratulations for making yourself look like the biggest idiot on the internet! (btw, freedom of speech is a great thing, even when it’s used to say mean things to others. I will go to war and get killed for my country’s men and women to say racist/bigoted thing about me)

    Ummmmmm where’s Brazil??? Brazil had more slaves than the US. Approx 10M, slavery ended in the United States in 1965, 1888 for Brazil. I would rated the United States, 3rd, or 4th in this horrible top ten. Behind Brazil, Belgium… (Yes BELGIUM They invented cutting off the limb of Africans… Look it up good ole King Leopold at one period of time owned what is now Congo) South Africa (lets not forget those friendly people) and maybe then the US. Just my two cents. Feel free to disagree with me. But looking into Brazil, Belgium, and South Africa. You will see Brazil and Belgium can rival Nazi Germany on the whole Genocide path to ethnic purity. America has done horrible things… Native Americans, Black slaves, Chinese worker etc… but not on the scale of these other countries.

To think these idiots would put US in front of countries like Sudan, Rawanda, Cambodia, Yugoslavia which ahve all had recent ethnic genocides… not to mention the middle east where the governments of Iraq gassed the Kurds and killed thousands of their own people because of their race. The list goes on and on/

  • Larry Longneck

    So, the writer is Indian and ranks his country last. That’s interesting since India is well known for its use of a cast system. I have been to India and felt very unwelcome even though I was treated well. It was the looks and whispers behind my back that made me feel that way.
    I have visited many other Asian countries and felt the same way. During the Korean war I know babies produced from a mixed relationship were shunned. Even orphanages refused to accept them. A good friend wanted to marry a Korean girl but her family forbade it because he was white. Her father told her he would kill her if she went ahead with it.
    In many parts of Africa white people are not welcome. A missionary friend was severely beaten because he was white. Another friend was attacked when he visited with his new African bride. She was told she would be killed for being with a white man.
    Yet the USA and the UK are tops on the list? The two countries in the world where you can go and do these things and live a decent life, yet they are the worst? The two countries in the world where these people have a voice yet they are the worst? Yes, there is racism. It’s not going to completely go away. There will always be ignorant, pitiful people. But it is better than anything else I can imagine. This is why I think this list is wrong.

The disputes between Marathis and Biharis is a cultural one ,not racism. Likewise, the Hindu-Muslim dispute and Gujrat riots were the result of religious differences. The so-called “slit throat north- south superiority competition ” is totally rubbish. Its a matter of great shame for you Mr. CHAITANYA KHANNA that being an Indian YOU question the secularism, racial tolerance and incredibility of India.

    The dude is right about America being racist, but its different then what you think, used to it was black people were discriminated against but now its starting to sorta go the other way, sure people say that they target black people left and right and frame them but think about it like this, if a white guy killed a black dude and got away with it, it would be national fucking news, riots would erupt instantly, hint the Zimmerman trial, if a black dude killed a white guy, doesn’t even make headlines, if he gets away scott free and white people protest they are seen as racist motherfuckers, its sort of a case of reverse racism, that’s really getting disgusting, but also, u put America as the most racist country? Bro, you just said Rowanda killed 800,000 Tutsis, and u are saying America is the most racist?

Is the official name for blacks ‘monkeys’ used on official documents in Ukraine? Is the official word for Jew in Poland ‘Greedy’? On most popular comedy-soap opera in Mexico does the part where everyone throws bananas at the African member of cast get biggest applause? What is the only country in Middle East to allow Muslims and Jews to serve on Supreme Court and Parliament and gives blacks, arab muslims and jews citizenship with equal rights? Only Israel. Is the US president black? Did black president get re-elected? Can blacks call whites ‘cracker honkeys’ in US and keep their job but whites calling blacks ‘darkies’ immediately get fired?

      on the last part. I say this to my white friends all the time. Unfortunately your ancestors were just so racist that you can’t get away with a lot of things other minorities can. It is what it is. White people have to carry that over their head just like black people have to carry all the negative stereotypes they have to deal with. At the end of the day though people are individuals and I treat everyone as such. I don’t care what skin color you are. Do right by me and you are ok with me. life’s too short for that dumb stuff.

        So let’s look at Russia. Not a single black man or woman has ever been a slave in Russia. Russia’s most famous poet Pushkin was half African, and 200 years ago was a nobleman. Russia had no colonies in Africa. Russia supported every anti-colonial movement in Africa in 20th century. So let me ask you, how racist were the ancestors of the 200,000,000 white Russians alive today, and what do they owe the black man?

        Millions of Russian Americans in USA who come from a country that never had a colony in Africa, never had black slaves, spend billions arming every anti-colonial movement in Africa, plus most beloved poet in Russia from 200 years ago, was a mixed black and also an aristocrat. So what is it exactly that their white ancestors should be ashamed about?

    Guys we are all humans and therefore we should treat each other equally! Above list please remove U.K and U.S from the top list, I do not think they should belong there! Others should be further investigated and must not be ranked at all! A simple mention will help them improve. But most of all, each and everyone in this forum must promote respect and equality on religion, races and nationality no matter what country you are in! – A simple advise!

  • don don

    How is the US the most racist country?
    THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED IS BLACK!!! however wrote this article is not very bright.

    • Tyler Hamel

      Just because we have a black president doesn’t mean a single thing. To be honest, racism became more prevalent when he came into office. One time a group of people holding the confederate flag came out telling Obama to come out with this hands up. What does that tell you?

  • Tao Te Ching

    I’m a black Australian and the idea a relatively small amount of racist abuse of Indian visitors (abuse that I condemn like most Australians do) is somehow worse than the Rwandan genocide is completely surreal. In my personal experience, far more racial abuse occurs between different ethnic groups in Mumbai every day.

  • Erris Brownie Brown

    The UK leads the world in interracial dating percentage. About half if not more of the white women there date black men sooo…

  • Shengli-zhe

    Argentina, Spain, Poland, anyone??

  • Gabon Dessoliers

    A very accurate list indeed.If people would only marry each other and have babies from all the different cultures and just keep mixing it up then we would have have super human’s with attributes from all these nations.They would have more power than He Man and Castle Grey skull.I would like to kick start the big mix up in Ireland by having sex with as many females from different cultures as i can.Any volunteers?

  • moo

    Uhh multiple countries that continue to commit genocide or recently stopped committing genocide are less racist than US, UK, and AUS? only WASPs can be racists right?

  • junaid

    totally bullshit
    Germany is not at all racist.
    I am an Indian student living here in Germany since last 18 months and I never experienced racism here.
    Please dont make your decision with past and don’t misguide people with your holy crap,

  • shone1209

    How did he make this list?
    Where are reliable objective quantitative scientific bases ?
    What about sources ? pfff
    This list can be racism per se.

  • NoFightingInTheWarRoom

    After having traveled to many countries around the world, I’ve realized that America is actually one of the least racist countries there is. I’m a liberal and I used to think America was horribly racist. In fact, it is one of the most diverse and accepting countries in the world. When I lived in Thailand, I had friends of Indian descent that were refused from jobs and were told flat out that they were not getting hired because their skin was too dark. This would not happen in the US.

  • Brian Parker

    Rwanda does not belong on this list. However, it could be on a list of countries in which some of their people are very stupid. The Belgians and the Americans contrived to have Africans kill other Africans. Rwandans were apparently too accomodating to people not of their race (Belgians and Americans) as I believe they are to all peoples not of their race.

  • Angelov

    WTF…..I’m sorry, your list sucks. You put the country with probably the most diversified society in the world 1st and you put people standing in front of the skulls of their neighbors somewhere in the middle. I think your list discriminates against common sense.

  • WayneofOZ

    So what data or statistics is this list based on. The USA, Australia, Germany & Britain are same of the most multicultural countries in the world. This list is garbage.

  • cristiana

    This list is ridiculous! Absolutely Pakistanis are not racist there are also people who are African Muslim!
    My husband is Muslim and Pakistani and I am Brazilian, he is the most tolerant person I’ve ever known.
    Just because one is a Muslim means that you know how many racist people who go to Catholic and Protestant practice brotherhood and do not even have the courage to shake your hand!
    This is just hypocrisy!

  • Mei Chan

    come on, I don’t think USA is the most racist country

    • dwiteprivilege

      i do. but I live in America so…

  • AJ Prasad

    The list is skewed as the USA celebrates LEGAL IMMIGRATION. For a nation to elect Obama means that more than half voted for him, a good portion of the other half that didn’t, just did not agree with his policies, only a very small amount went against him based on race.

    No other country is as diverse as the USA which means of course there are going to be racial tensions but, despite what you see on internet comments the majority of the USA are good people who have no problem living side by side. with other ethnic groups. That’s the American Way.

    Just look at the last Olympic Games. While most nations generally have athletes with the same ethnic background and skin color the USA is as colorful as ever. Black, White, Red, Yellow, hell I wouldn’t be surprised if we had green people in a year.

    There is Racism in the USA but to say its more than India or Japan is just idiotic. In India dark skin is frowned upon (which is stupid seeing as the people are naturally dark). They have commercials for products to lighten skin so your life is better.

    In the media and movies the light skin indians are the heroes and good peple and the dark skin are usally the villains or comic relief.

  • Amrit Pal

    Countries are not racist..People are racist in every country.

  • enrique

    Where the hell is Zimbabwe? White people are killed there by the order of the president.

  • David Tollisen

    India is not much racist. Israel and Iran on the top.

  • Gatteo

    Qatar? Saudi Arabia? Sauth Africa with apartheid?
    Argentina? South Korea and North Korea?
    France with the Banlieue?

    Hungary and Norway with hte most extreme right wing governments?
    What about Belgium that has stopped to give working visa from a couple of months?
    What criteria did you use for this ranking? Is not reliable!

  • VinnyVendetta

    Ethnic Background does not equal Racial makeup.. The conflict in Rwanda dealing with The Tutsi and the Hutu is not a conflict between two different Races more than it is two different ethnicities. This is more of cultural prejudice than it is racism.. Thats like a Peruvian showing hatred towards an Argentinean

  • Broadfall Productions

    dumb…countries aren’t racist , people are and people aren’t groups they are individuals.

    • dwiteprivilege

      countries are made out of groups and individuals…

  • cistiana

    I have to laugh on pakistan is the list of countries most racist?
    My husband is Pakistani and I am black,
    I laugh that they have put Italy.
    Italy is also a country of racists, I talk about that I lived eighteen years in Italy!
    I have to laugh that they put blacks and Asian countries as racists! Everyone knows who the real racists on this Earth!
    The human being should be ashamed to be so self-righteous,
    At the end we are all born in the same way and in the same way we die!

  • Gaforjia Rocovic

    AND SWEDEN I THE BIGEST RACIST COUNTRY

  • Liz

    Can’t say for sure, but looking at the world through my own lens and the places I’ve actually visited and lived, this ranking seems pretty accurate, but that is self-centered

  • claire

    Most of the misery in the world today comes from white racism. From the moment the white man put his foot outside of Europe in Africa, North America, South America, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand , India, SE Asia, et al., the rivers of blood and tears have not stopped. Our lands, our customs, our identities, our languages,our religions, our way of life,our treasures. Not a ‘please’ or ‘thank you’. Is it not the white man that has upset the balance of our world? As far as I know, it is only Japan, Thailand and Ethiopia that the white man has not colonized and stole from. Can you believe that? The inversion that now the white person is victim of racism is to be dismissed entirely. Their racism is now so hidden and sophisticated, that we get side-tracked by the right winger who blathers hate speech. As a note to the compiler of the list, Apartheid South Africa had taken racism to the nth degree of hatred. Never has there been such an awful system in the world such as Apartheid. How could you miss it? It is to make one go mad to think that so so many people on our planet Earth suffer the most unbearable and unimaginable pain.

  • rocket625

    were #1 were #1 and not by a small amount.

  • pozoh2

    Racism and hate is mostly prevalent in Asian countries, especially towards black people. I so much feel the hate that I sometimes want to throw up when am in an Asian country. It is mostly common among the Indians and Malays. The Chineese are more tolerant and knowledgeable than others though.

  • dwiteprivilege

    I don’t know about rankings and all that America should definitely be on the list lol

  • Jema Ndibwile

    stupid list I have ever seen. You need a lot of research before you thruough up some bullshit like this. IGNORANCE

  • Muscles>VanillaIndyMidgets

    Italy, England, Japan, Russia. Sweden, Denmark, Germany, India, China and Brazil are the 10 real racist countries in this world. PERIOD.

  • Rayfu06

    soo hey. i am a muslim and an asian on top of that. have always wanted to study abroad and get a job abroad but still scared about how i will be accepted there. any idea the best place there is for me? i mean, in us and european area.

  • Alanoud AlThani

    I’m an Arab. I can’t say I completely agree with this list. I personally don’t think that there still is racist tension towards blacks in the UK. I’ve been there , and I haven’t seen any of that.

    In my opinion. There is no such thing as a ‘racist country’. Every country has its good and bad.

    Except Israel. Those are raised amongst the belief “we are the chosen people of God” and that they are better than everyone else. Anyone remember the racist protest in Israel? “I am proud to be racist!”

  • Nina T

    I feel the most racism in the United States. I think the list is correct. I feel strong racism in South of U.S. such as Texas.

  • Tomos Burton

    It might just be that the grass is greener. I tend to think the UK is more racist, especially towards East Asians, than people are willing to admit and Japan isn’t as bad as people say but then maybe I’ll go over there and start thinking it’s really bad.

  • smok wedsmok

    wheres switzerland on this list?

  • Not Real

    The top 3 are all Anglo countries – how predictable.

    Unfortunately for your argument, the statistics say otherwise. Take a look:

  • Laide Lawal

    I agree that the USA should be number 1 on the list but the UK & Germany should not the on that list. This is my list from 1 -10: USA, Russia, Ukraine,Turkey (towards Kurds), Israel, China (towards Africans/Blacks), Spain, Italy, South Korea, Japan. We see a lot of these pigs in many parts of Africa, making money and enjoying life, and they never face racism from Africans so fuck you all. Africans, let’s start doing to these pigs what they do to us in their nations. This is why I don’t live in their darn countries. I live in mine. Do them them what they do to us!
