Comment: The reason why racism has flourished recently in Finland through parties like the Perussuomalaiset (PS) is because it hasn’t been condemned strongly enough.
Sensible politicians and common citizens in Finland who know better, should look at how racism is condemned in countries like Britain.
Why is this important? Because there is no such thing as selective racism in a society. Racism affects everyone and those who encourage undermine our values and our way of life.
What kind of response should parties like Kokoomus, Social Democrats and the PS to racist comments?
Thank you @Mastersson for bringing this story to Migrant Tales’ attention.
Labour leader Ed Miliband has described historian David Starkey’s comments on race as “disgusting and outrageous”. Mr Starkey told BBC Two’s Newsnight “whites have become black” after four days of rioting across England.
