Dear Finnish Nightmares,
When generalizing about how some white Finns may react, why is it that all of your characters are white? There are “other” Finns, too. Do you take them into account? Do you ever fear that generalizing a “model” reaction may reinforce stereotypes and as a result promote a monocultural and over-simplified view of the people that live in this country? One of those stereotypes is that there are no such things as “non-white Finns.”

Even if some may consider these cartoons quaint, do they promote stereotypes about white Finns? One of the first effective ways to challenge racism is by challenging stereotypes. Source: Facebook.
