Do you feel welcome as a foreigner in Norway? Do you agree or disagree with the statement "Norway is a racist country"? Let us know.


The actress and author Tinashe Williamson, whose parents came to Norway from Zimbabwe, in September told an interviewer that she had suffered "an extreme amount of racism" when growing up in the village of Vormsund, north east of Oslo, with few friends at school and constant bullying. 

Other public figures of visibly foreign background, such as the Green Party MP Lan Marie Nguyen Berg, have also frequently faced racist abuse, both online and in person. 

But racism and xenophobia can also affect foreigners far from the public eye in quite subtle ways.

How do you, as a foreigner in Norway, feel about the way you are received in the country? Do you feel Norway is a racist country? Is it more or less racist than the country where you come from?
