Hello! Today I am going to do a post on how not to be racist. I am doing this post because I am so sick of people saying things like “I don`t mean to sound racist, but (insert racist comment)”. Perhaps, people who use this expression are truly hypocritical, because they try to act nice…

  1. Thank you for the insightful opinion piece, Wan Wei. The key to integration, or adaption to a country, is two-way. We need Finland to be a more inclusive society. Hopefully they’ll stop asking reminding us, and our Finnish-born children, where they’re from. A person can build many homes during his lifetime. It’s the way things are today in a globalized world where people move about more than they did ever before.

    Why? Really why? why do you think people need the feel to add that line these days?
    The atmosphere is so freaking PC these days, that you cannot say anything negative about actual individuals that have committed a crime.

    Some people, and it seems you too, have a problem differentiating “some” and “all”
    Some asylum seekers are war criminals and rapists. Not all obviously, but because of the kneejerk reaction of the PC activists people need the feel to specify that they do not mean all, just these individuals who have actually done something.

    ps. how do you integrate someone who doesn’t want to? It’s not Ivan Ivanovich that seems to be raping children, but Muhammed and variations.

    1. Thank you Mikko for your comment: I see where you are coming from.

      So–instead of trying to hide behind a “nice facade”, why not say it straight just like you do? 🙂 and THEN be prepared to justify your comment with hard evidence.

      Do you have statistics behind what you are saying, that migrants commit more crimes than the locals?
