South Africa still

Lovely country and scenery but the cities are such a nasty place, Only people who I found there who were tolerant were the Zulu people

Though so much racism in the city from all races

India and others are not even close. The people here are so obsessed with Fair skin...it isn't funny anymore. No wonder fairness cream brands flock to this nation. It's undoubtedly the most racist country in the world. Trust me I live here. I'm North East Indian with skin tone a little bit fairer than mainland Indians and some people treat me in a better way compared to more dark complexioned people here. It's the mentality of the people..they like fair skin.

United States although I dont have too many countries to compare it to from my experience. Its incredibly disgusting how everyone in the US is racist to each other. Here in Puerto Rico racism between ourselves is non existent and to outsiders its very rare.

Yep it's almost washes away the fact he considers Black people comparable to monkeys..

Pakistani people that I've met are like that as well. My sisters friend and the friends mother use skin ointments to make their skin pale and the kids believe that their family is white. Darkest white kids I've seen.

It has nothing to do with race. It's about social class. Fair skin is associated with wealth and a lifestyle that doesn't require standing out in the sun all day performing manual labor.

South Africa, India and a number of Asian nations.

@deltahuman: Met someone from Malaysia who said something similar. She said that people in her home country naturally trust lighter skin color more and that pale skin was desirable. Supposedly, they treat said people better then they do a lot of their own citizens.

@masker: I agree with that I won't suggest an entire country is racist just because of comments from its leadership. It does say a lot about America though with how much support Trump is getting though in my opinion.

Regardless it doesn't offend me at all if someone's racist or has a preference to a certain skin tone. I see it as ignorance but your free to your own thoughts.

@masker:

"well... America is probably the most racist i know"

America is alot better than most countries, considering it's also alot more diverse than most as well.

And Rodman was only there to help their basketball team; and that's all he was allowed. Most N.Koreans aren't that hospitable to any foreigners, cause most foreigners are people like journalists or something who have needed to sneak in illegally. The only way to go there is to sign on to one of their state approved tours LOL you don't get to do what you want. And if you mess up, it's YEARS in jail with hard labor.

that nut job ruler preaches how the whole world is terrible to his people and how they (the common n. Korean) are so lucky to have a benevolent ruler like Kim-Jong Un. It's sickening what he does to his own people, but they are even worse to foreigners because they have been fed propaganda about how we are all out to get them.

@vashtanerada88: trust me i know about north korea... i've watched quite a few documentaries about it. (+ people illegally documenting stuff from the inside... cause you know, you're not allowed to record everything you want)

Anyway, as far as i know America is one of the countries with the most racial prejudices, tensions, disparity, and overall just hate towards each others that i know of... and to ALL races too, not just minorities, even whites. I'm not talking about just a few cases here and there... everyone has them, but hell when even the police is so racist(many cases documented this) that they can just KILL "suspects" left and right without any real reason or repercussion, especially if they're black, you know there's a problem. Maybe you don't notice this because you're from the US, and are used to it, but believe me alot of racist stuff, like even those stupid sayings(e.g. "white people can't do this", "black people do this and that", etc.)for example... they're not from other countries, other countries don't use them because they don't generalize on entire races as much.

btw i'm NOT saying America is the most racist place ever, of course not, but amongst the countries i know well enough to be able to speak of.. it definitely makes the top 5.

(also many lists for the most racist countries in the World put USA in 1° place... again not saying they're right, but that's something to reflect about)

these. only idiots could really think the most racist country is america, unless you mean racism specifically against whites. i'm black but even i can see they clearly get the short end of the stick.

and even then, there are more racist countries than that. i just can't think of one where whites are as disadvantaged, or socially stigmatized as here.

It's not a new thing. There were a couple different countries that had their own versions long before that one came out.

yeah but you have probably lived in the USA for most of your life, I'm guessing if you also spent years of your life in say S.Korea or Italy or Brazil or Egypt or somewhere you would also experience this racism

Idk every country has their fair share

agreed, humans are still tribal and have not evolved to care for each other

@modernww2fare said:

Which is it?

I seen this about a month ago in news, it was countries who didn't like foreigners or didn't want to live next to someone of another ethnic/religion group....it was on some of the boards and blogs

it was not what you expect and something like this

1India

2Qatar

3bahrain

3libya

4zimbabwe

5switzerland

6israel

7saudi arabia

8haiti

9Lebanon?

....i can't remember the rest but it kind of surprised me, also I hear Lebanon and India although 'multi-cultural'...all the different religions, ethnic groups, cultures, races they don't mix well, there are often street riots or terrorism etc

Um.... White people are not disadvantaged or socially stigmatized in the U.S. Not even in the slightest.

Also, there are lots of people that haven't been outside of the U.S., so how exactly would they know if other countries are more racist than the one they live in?

Probably one of the African countries. Say what you will about some of these countries mentioned but it's highly unlikely nowadays they have people representing the government collecting "white people" tolls on roads, separate healthcare prices depending on race or specific landing patterns for planes to avoid getting shot down for containing whites etc which I know people who've been there had to experience. That's not even including the racism the continent's ethnic groups display towards each other (the Rwandan genocide being an extreme example from only 20 years ago).
