Bulgaria Ranked among Countries with Lowest Racial Tolerance: Bulgaria among Countries with Lowest Racial Tolerance The Swedish map of "racial tolerance," data source: World Values Survey

Bulgaria is among the countries with the lowest racial tolerance in Europe and the world, according to a study of Swedish researchers, cited by the Washington post.

Bulgaria, along with Albania, Moldova, and France, is in the group of countries where 20% to 29.9% of respondents have said they did not want to have as neighbor someone from another race.

Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Hungary are in the next group, where between 15% and 19.9% of the population do not want neighbors from other races than their own.

With below 5%, Norway, Great Britain, Latvia and Andorra are among the most tolerant countries in Europe, while globally the list is topped by Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the US, and a number of countries in South America.

The most intolerant are Hong-Kong (71.8%), Bangladesh (71.7%), Jordan (51.4%) and India (43.5%).

The Swedish researchers found that the level of economic development of a country can be linked only to tolerance towards homosexuals (the better the economy, the highest the tolerance), but not directly to the level of racist tolerance or intolerance.

f*ck off, we are not interested in Nazi propaganda.

RHODESIAN - 26 May 2013 // 09:29:46

Sweden, the most racially tolerant of the Viking countries, a country that since the end of WW2 has opened her doors to the disadvantaged, besieged by scum. What hope is there for the rest of Europe. As long as governments have an open door policy this fifth column, invited to reside amongst the disadvantaged indigenous population will continue to rise up.
Unless Europe adopt a much stronger policy such as enforced repatriation this will escalate as the decades march on. Majority of these people want to retain their ethnicity, they do not want to intigrate. To a lessor degree one saw it in Africa. The Portuguese Club, the Itlain Club, the Greek Club etc. Only those Europeans were happy to intigrate and have an ethnic social club to visit.
I advocate everyone who is worried about multi-culturalism to read Jean Marie Le-Pen. Where Enoch Powell stated in speeches his vision, the truth is written by Mr Le_penne.
Multi-culturailism sells the people down the river and of course the folk that force it down your throats are the folk who have the money to bugger off when it fails.

Just ignore him, that monkey craves attention to fill the void of his miserable life.

Riots throw spotlight on inequality
Stockholm riots spread around city
Country profile: Sweden
Reinforcements of specially trained police are being sent to Stockholm after five nights of unprecedented rioting in the capital's suburbs.

Police officers are being sent from the cities of Gothenburg and Malmo, both of which saw rioting in recent years, a spokesman told BBC News.

"They are trained and educated for the police tasks going on in Stockholm," Kjell Lindgren said.

Several schools and scores of cars have been burnt in Stockholm this week.

The nightly riots began on Sunday in the north-western suburb of Husby, a deprived, largely immigrant area. It is believed they were sparked by the death of a man nearly a week before, who was shot by police after he allegedly threatened to kill them with a machete.

The unrest has since spread around the city, with groups of youths stoning police and firefighters summoned to tackle arson attacks.

The rioting has raised questions about the success of the country's attempts to integrate foreign-born residents, who now make up some 15% of the population.

In Husby, more than 80% of the 12,000 or so inhabitants are from an immigrant background, and most are from Turkey, the Middle East and Somalia.

Community activists have accused the police of using racist language during the unrest and prosecutors are investigating complaints. Police have tried to calm the situation by speaking to community leaders, such as in mosques.

OK people, I finally realized why A$$ophobe hates so much anything Bulgarian.
As the President of Brasil is a Bulgarian woman, he probably got kicked out of the country, if he ever were there and now he needs to go back to his hole in the floor..

Mr. Pitkin - 23 May 2013 // 20:35:58

A$$phobe, where do you live? In the clouds, or in hate for if you had spent 20 years in Sao Paulo, as you claim, how come you show so much interest about Bulgaria and seem to "know" everything Bulgarian?
And to respond to your comment: Chupa mi pinga pendejo!

"bulgarians do not want to become dance gays"

Did anyone say something different?

But I know why you got so excited about this topic, Uchak. You are just afraid that, when the worst would happen and the Bulgarians would become "dance gays", you would stop to be at least in one field something special. LOL

I think I will address you in the future with your true name, Mr. Dance Gay!

Uchak - 23 May 2013 // 18:06:10

"Obviously, you have personal reasons to hate this beautiful country, or you wouldn't trash it at any opportunity you have."

Mr. Pinga,

Please refer to my posting on the "Burglarian Govt allocates 3M to Tourism" to see what I think about the beauty of your country.


Chushki - 23 May 2013 // 07:58:37

Uchak, yet another nom de plume of Seedy's.....

Uchak - 23 May 2013 // 02:09:53

their IS a jewish conspiracy against BG, it is called communism and post communism
stanishev, andreu lukanov, pirinski many more all yids whose communism crushed bg
gypsies reproduce like rabbits just like pruning a tree one must once in a while reduce their population is nature's way

Mr. Pitkin - 23 May 2013 // 01:46:53


obviously, you don't know anything about Bulgaria, or maybe you got rejected by a beautiful Bulgarian woman who divorced your a$$ and took you to the cleaners?
Do you have to pay child support and alimony? Obviously, you have personal reasons to hate this beautiful country, or you wouldn't trash it at any opportunity you have.

Yane - 20 May 2013 // 20:20:07

Eh, it's seedy on his multiple names, rhodesian, russophobe, mephisto, it's always the same turkish mongrel who haunts these forums with his hate of Bulgaria. Replying to himself, what a looser he must be in life. Oh, and he knows x languages too, internet translators makes everyone an expert!

Don't you have a job, Seedy? No, don't answer that, we'll just get another retarded reply from you, just sign out and go look for a job, u gypsy moocher.

Seedy - 20 May 2013 // 19:34:32

OMG - people in Bulgaria READ! This may be a lost art in the Loonie Left Western Europe but here we have the right to read wtf we please. Reading a book doesn't mean that the reader necessarily agrees with the author or the views expressed but that he wants to know more about the subject before shooting off his ignorant mouth and making stupid assumptions. Maybe you should try this approach or is self-righteousness another of your Yuman Rites?

madoods - 20 May 2013 // 13:54:31

I have to agree with Rhodesian and Uchak. Britain is becoming a scary country and will only get worse. Which may explain why any British left there are worried about even more people coming in
