Racism Is Seen as a Growing Threat in Denmark, Poll Shows

A growing number of Danes say racism has become palpable in their country.

A poll published on Monday by broadcaster TV2 shows that 42% of those asked now see racial discrimination as a widespread problem in Denmark, up from 32% a year ago. The result follows reported acts of aggression against people of color in Danish towns and comes as the government’s controversial immigration policies draw international attention.
