I wouldn't have a clue to be honest. I've heard that Japan can be xenophobic, but that's not my experience with Japanese people I've met here.

I couldn't imagine a country more racist/prejudice than the United States in the developed world. What other country in the developed world has a history more turbulent than the United States when it comes to race? I do believe that America has become more excepting of people from different races/ ethic backgrounds over the past two or three decades, however we still have along way to go.

The U.S. I don't think is still racist. In the past it was, but so were many other countries. I mean countries like Portugal, Spain and Great Britain had no issue whatsoever in kidnapping and selling Africans to be SLAVES. Germany wiped out a huge chunk of the Jewish population in Europe. Let's not forget the genocide that also occurred in Eastern Europe. Or ask the Japanese what they think of the Chinese? Or ask a Korean how they feel about Filipinos.

So while the U.S. has had an ugly past with racism, I don't think we have been the worst. The U.S. has come a LONG way and if anything I think more credit should be given to the U.S. for the strides it has made, especially seeing as we have a half black president.

Is it perfect? No. But no other country is.

I was in the Marine Corps but I've known plenty of people that have went into the U.S. Army.

Your ranking strikes me as though you've rarely met Black-American Army soldiers that have done tours in Germany?

I've never met a single Black-American Army vet--not a single one--that didn't love Germany from their time spent there. There are a lot of mulatto children born in Germany with U.S. citizenship due to this too. I used to converse online with to mulatta women in the U.S. that had German mothers that got impregnated with them by black GI's from the U.S. and we weren't the only ones in our online group conversing that were half black and half German here in the USA.

Knowing what I do about racism and gauging from what I was taught in past Africology course a few years ago, I would say the United States would rank number one for racism. Particularly institutional racism. The state of Detroit and Gary, Indiana should be glaring examples of that. But more importantly all the businesses and industrial park development occurring outside of the traditional cities. My suspicion is that no financial loss has struck Black-America so far and wide since the end of Reconstruction.

Japan is often used as an example of a non-white racist nation, and with good reason.

I don't think Australia and Ireland would be at the top.

In my Africology course our professor viewed South Africa as the closet nation on earth to U.S. past and present. South Africa of course, has had a black president and has rich black people too.

That question, that's not racism. Not per se. That's having a prejudice.

Discrimination and prejudice are not one and the same as racism. Kind of like the difference between the words empathy and sympathy.

Racism can use the tools of discrimination and prejudice though. That's why they seem the same.

Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another. So, if you love your black or Mexican maid but think you are racially superior to her then you're racist.

While I'm mulatto I have a prejudice against ethnic Black-American women. Usually. Not do to their race but stemming from cultural attributes I don't like. I do not feel that way about black African women from Cameroon or Brazil.

However, India does have a problem with racism or what some in Black-America would term "colorism." Black-America, Brazil, Mexico and almost all the world has that problem though.

Science has even found that males across the world tend to statistically favor lighter skin on women. So, feminist, sociologists, and Afrocentric scholars are going to say what about that in relation to their advocacy of the correctness of homosexuality? They'll reject the science about color and "being born that way" attracted to lighter skinned women right?
