Having seen how far race relations and civil rights have come in this country I thought the United States may have been the worst, but in today's world I think we are far from it. After listening to radio broadcasts of people interviewed from Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela I think that South America may be far more racist, even in today's age than is the United States. I'm also aware that the race relations in South Africa are horrible. It wasn't until the 1990's that schools were integrated there.

When it comes to the rest of the world, I must say, I'm pretty ignorant. I have no idea what race relations in Europe or Asia are like.

So tell me, what country has the worst race relations or is the most racist in the world?

Are you specifically talking about racism against black people?

No. I never mentioned racism specifically against black people, hence why I included the whole world and inquired about the European and Asian continents. I mean racism as a whole against any race in any country.

I'd imagine Japan.

I mean, they dont even allow immigrants to immigrate there.

Exactly, if only the Anglosphere and other western European nations would follow Japan's way to preserve their population.

Seriously? No immigration to Japan? Not sure if I believe that.

It's not so smart. They have zero population growth. Which is negatively impacting the economy, both in terms of no growing markets, no demand for new construction. But also in terms of the ageing population being a drain on the countries taxes.
No, Japan is shooting themselves in the foot by not allowing immigration.

Japan is wise to not allow immigration. It's a small place with no space for more people. Fully 2/3rds of each island is uninhabitable because they can't live on those kinds of craggy mountains that jut up vertically in the middle for the full length of each island. The habitable and agricultural areas of the islands are the coastlines and low foot hills and all their cities are on the coasts because they can't build inland. The Japanese people are 127 million people living and working crammed together like sardines in a can and working themselves to death. They have a word for death from over-work, the word is "karoshi" and it's the most controversial health issue in Japan.

Take a look at the topographical map, you'll see the cities are on coastlines at lower elevations and that the rocky, craggy mountains take up most of the space. That's all Japan is - rocks sticking up out of the ocean.
