Racism in Denmark

On June 19th, 2006, Politiken published an article about racist leaflets that are being handed out, unchallenged, in northern Denmark. They are being given to "foreigners" and are produced by the nazi party of Denmark. The headline says "A Free Denmark." Who will stand by this time and not say a word?
The racism in this country simply gets worse and worse, while the so-called 'creative class' doesn't want to be bothered with these kind of unpleasantries.
The racism has become institutionalized and a part of our everyday culture: as it continues to grow, unchallenged, the messages have become an accepted part of our discourse - the message becomes normalized and we begin to believe that there is a truth in what is being expressed.
It's a con, pure and simple, a ruse, a distraction, a way to make scapegoats out of people who live in this country.
It's not just the nazi's - it's the advertisers, the politicians, the every day people who use racist rhetoric in order to gain an advantage. It shouldn't be this way.
