Skip to comments.Map shows world's ‘most racist’ countries (and the answers may surprise you)
Posted on 05/16/2013 12:29:21 PM PDT by Olog-hai
An international poll has revealed the worlds least tolerant countrieswith Hong Kong at the top of the list and Britain near the bottom.
The global social attitudes study claims that the most racially intolerant populations are all in the developing world, with Bangladesh, Jordan and India in the top five.
By contrast, the study of 80 countries over three decades found Western countries were most accepting of other cultures with Britain, the U.S., Canada and Australia more tolerant than anywhere else.

But.....but.....I thought only whites can be racist.
I must be intolerant.
I wouldn’t want the Obamadork or the Holderdork even in my state...let alone next door.
While I would not like to live in an extremely racist country, I'm not so sure living in a tolerant country that is "accepting of other cultures" is all that ideal either.
I am very surprised by this poll, even shocked. How did Japan finish so low?
Study results: Who cares?
There are in the third tier..
The should be more distinct colors .... HAHAHAHA
why shade low countries shade of Blue.
Max Fisher of the Washington Post suggested that maybe 'Americans are conditioned by their education and media to keep these sorts of racial preferences private, i.e. to lie about them on surveys, in a way that Indians might not be'.
There's your answer. Americans are not only the most racist people in the world, as everyone knows; they're also the biggest liars in the world. The end.
Hard to believe that Pakistan rates so well. Maybe they think that another race is a Muslim who goes to a different mosque.
Surprised by Hong Kong, it is a very international city.
IOW, I'd a lot rather take my chances living next to an ethnic Chinese in Hong Kong that I would living next to someone of just about the same skin shade in Pakistan.
Not surprised. I live in the South and I’m always telling ignorant Northerners and foreigners that we are not that racist. The propaganda machine has been pumping out how racist we are for so long that people all over the world and the dumb Northerners believe it. That’s what their university professors tell them.
And we(west) are to be tolerant of the intolerant(middle east)?
This map validates the obvious — white nations are the least racist because the white residents of those nations have been subjected to endless propaganda for the past half century that noticing obvious differences among races is “racist”.
Residents in other nations have not been inundated with this endless propaganda so they naturally notice race differences and they naturally feel closer to members of their race and stand up for their race’s interests. All races do this, even races in Western nations, with the exception of whites who have been told that to act like everyone else would be “racist”.
1) Hong Kong - 71.8% of people do not want to live next to someone of a different race
2) Bangladesh - 71.7%
3) Jordan - 51.4%
4) India - 43.5%
5) Saudi Arabia - 37.7%
1) Sweden - 1.4% of people do not want to live next to someone of a different race
2) Argentina - 2.0%
3) Norway - 2.8%
4) Canada - 2.9%
5) U.S. - 3.8%
And we all know the integrity of WaPo reporters . . .
Meanwhile, I’ve seen some very virulent racism out of people in the northern USA, especially the northeast.
Might be the influence of Beijing.
But...but...all the liberal Globalists always tell us that all races are friendly and we are racist/isolationist/protectionist if we do not like rest of the world....
Anyone notice its the peoples with dark skin that rated poorly....
In some countries it may imply skin color, in others ethnic origins, language, and culture.
Also, some peoples may be more honest than others, or less afraid to express their opinions. And the data may be pretty spotty from some of those countries.
China has akways been racist. They considered themselves the “middle kingdom” between heavan and earth. The only civilized people on earth. Everyone else were barbarians, little better than animals.
Hong Kong? When did Hong Kong become a country?
I would have thought Bosnia or Kosovo would be number one, followed by the other countries that made up what was once Yugoslavia.
France is way up ove 20%, worst in Europe. No suprise there.
It isn’t, especially when those doing the accomodating are being replaced by truly racist populations.
Only anectodal, of course, but personally, other than some blacks (Jesse, Al, and their ilk and followers), I have found Koreans to be the most racist.
I’m sure that there are lots of non-racist Koreans out there, so I am not trying to make a generalization. I’m just saying I haven’t personally met them yet, while I have met about a dozen that were.

Exactly. With political correctness so pervasive at every level of society, say the wrong thing and you’re toast.
It shows Hong Kong is the freest place where people can speak their mind without fear of backlash. Also, not wanting to live next to another race does not equate with a like or dislike of that race.
According to the current regime, that’s the case. Racism is only something those of European ancestry are even capable of, in their belief system. Anyone who has travelled, or lived in a city where Europeans aren’t the majority, know the reality.
This is not even remotely surprising. The notion that America is a racist country is simply a lie created by leftist to push their sick agenda.
To be honest
Like I care....
Whites will dismiss the obvious with now ingrained platitudes of sameness and oneness
An indulgence forced on folks with the threat of shame for the civilized
The uncivilized know all too well differences matter
Just ask a Tutsi or Timor Christian or West Bank Jew or white guy with flat tire in the Bronx end of Major Deegan if it matters
I wonder how many here really care about this
I for one think its fine to desire to be around your own group or a particular group that acts better in general
Only whites are required to feel like this
Everyone else is encouraged to have pride and self identification
Our forebears would find this insane
Even the most vaunted Yankee abolitionist rarely harbored such self destructive guilt and unreality about the obvious
This is simply a way to bring western civilization to bear.....and many collaborate
And unless checked....this will usher in yet another dark age
Peaks of civilization come and go and we are hellbent on the descent
The collective IQ of the west has declined hand in hand with the height mean
“Surprised by Hong Kong, it is a very international city.”
It’s called a country in the article——that says it all about this poll.
Everything you wrote is correct. Sadly, most people today would denounce your completely logical and accurate post as racist... even if, deep down, they agreed. It’s fashionable to oppose “racism”, and sadly the word racism has come to encompass any racial truth. Keep preaching the truth and hopefully it will embolden more people to do the same. I have noticed the worm starting to turn on this topic the past few years as more people are beginning to break the shackles of political correctness.
