Bullying is simply intolerable. Bullying based on race, even more despicable. I love Denmark and am a bit obsessed with all things Danish ( have danish heritage) but after reading this article, am very thankful that I and my kids grew up in a multicultural Australia. However, there is worrying xenophobic trends here that undermine the egalitarianist ideal that was present, in Australia. Again this is mainly coming from the racially homogenous sector of society and right winged minds. It is brave of this young man to present his story and I hope that through this, it can challenge entrenched bigoted attitudes. The bullying based on race can even extend to facial features/sexual orientation that diverge from any norm. Some people will only be happy if everyone looks sounds, speaks and thinks the same. What a horrible society devoid of diversity that would be.
Fear, ignorance and a lack of altruistic values taught by family in the early years, are some of the causative factors and it is there they must be challenged and addressed.
