I do not mean to disrespect any country but with my experiences with different countries (dont want to name the countries), and news heard on media I have seen that some countries have been disreputed as more racist countires than others. Though now every person in the country can be racist but we cant deny that some countries have put that racist label on them than others. I just want to put that into discussion, which country do u think is the most racist in the world.

I've noticed Asians in general tend to be pretty racist. And these are my friends and family!

I chose "other". Because I think every country on earth has it's issues with racism and bigotry in one way or another.

I haven't been to all countries in the world, so I can't make any fair comparements on the issue. And probably no one but scientists who have been studying this subject can...
I vote "other"...

Ok, I've just got a question (it's just a question, don't be woried) I'm in the US right now, and (like on TV), people tend to talk about people as "black", or "white" or "indian" or whatever. In Sweden this would be deemed racist and borderline offensive, but people here don't seem to even think about it. Is it more ok in the US to differ between "races" in daily life as long as it doesn't involve any discrimination?

Guess things like this makes it hard to compare "racism" in different countries, since we all have different ways of looking at it and expressing it.

In the past, that's how early settlers differentiate themselves from 'others' that don't look like them. "White", "black", "red", "yellow" and whatever else. That form of labeling got passed on from then to now.
