Sweden: New 'mythbuster' website to fight racism

Via the Local:
The Swedish government has launched a new website to combat the proliferation of inaccurate and racist myths about minorities and immigrants in Sweden.


The new site, regeringen.se/tolerans, attempts to debunk a number of “common internet myths about immigrants and minorities”.

“One always needs to engage in debates about xenophobia and prejudice,” writes Ullenhag, who also warns of the dangers of “the silence of forces for good”.

Among the myths addressed on the website are claims that Sweden will soon be a Muslim country, that Swedes are on their way to becoming a minority in their own country, and that Swedish children are no longer allowed to eat pork in school.
