A new UNICEF report shows that almost 70% of young Norwegians think that people in positions of power are not doing enough to stop racism.

37% exposed to racism due to skin color, 25% due to religion

A new UNICEF report on racism shows that young Norwegians feel that those in power are not doing enough to stop racism in this country. The survey was undertaken by 1.815 Norwegian teenagers, aged between 13 and 19 years old. Not only did 67% of respondents feel that those in power did not do enough to stop racism but 37% had been exposed to racism themselves due to the color of their skin whilst 25% had been subjected to racism due to their religion.

The report was handed to the Prime Minister, Jonas Gahr Støre, earlier on Thursday morning and painted a stark picture of young people’s experience of racism in Norway. 68% of those young people who experienced racism or discrimination said that they had received no help. 57% of respondents said that their school was the most common place they experienced racism followed by social media.

    There is no such a thing as race. Don’t believe me – check it out medically and biologically. We are all of one people made by the same maker. We have different eye, hair, and skin color as well as different builds. All parts are interchangeable with eachother. Open us up and we all look the same on the inside. It’s just that the outside package looks different.

    What we are talking about is a heart issue. I hate you because you do not look like me.
