    I know. I'm joking.

    Though I wouldn't like to be a minority in Russia

    Depends where. Russia is huge. Like, I would not mind being a minority in some isolated place with one other inhabitant and some wildlife. But in mainstream society? Yes definitely agree.

    Which countries are especially racist in their culture? Who has had the worst history in terms of race relations?
    From my experience, Certainly Germany.

    Been to Berlin, didn't feel excluded at all, and I'm clearly a tourist. Did you have a different experience? Unless you mean the historical side of things, obviously.

    Are you White?? I'm brown and I was born in Germany, brought up there, but the way they treated me..:eek:

    Obviously not every German but yeah most for sure. Plus, Berlin is tourist attraction, you cannot really compare it to those who live there on a daily a basis.

    If that is true, I am quite sorry. Can you give examples of what you mean though?

    Aww so nice of you.

    So on a daily basis, I was made fun of me cos of my headscarf. Not every teacher but some were very racist, e.g. not rewarding the honest marks that I deserved. Ignoring the situation where students offended me. My parents were also made fun of. Name calling e.g. terrorists and Brownie. Calling me "Auslander" which means "Outsider", although I was born and brought up in Germany.
    There are many examples!

    True. I would say they are the most racist western country, along with Australia. They are the most racist western countries by some distance.
    could you 3 be more specific?

    A lot of African countries would be pretty bad. Especially the ones which have wars like South Sudan and Central African Republic.

    Pakistan, rural Japan and large parts of Africa are particularly intolerant of foreigners.

    Anyone saying a Western country clearly hasn't traveled much.
    You've never been pakistan? They like foreigners as, from places I've been, they need them in order to survive. They won't just kill you because you look different ffs peoples misconceptions are ridiculous

    Australia isn't a Western country It may have a similar culture to that of the UK/America, but your geography is erroneous.

    Wouldn't like to be a minority in Russia. I've been threatened there just because I live in the UK even though both my parents are Russian, so being a minority there must be peak.
