Knight at Arms
Yeah the ot,her "area of the world" that makes up the remainder is probably Bosnia The only non-Muslim countries that are significant sources of immigrants to Sweden are Poland and Finland. I really don't think it's the Finnish guys. The Polish....ehh I wouldn't bet all my money they're not over-represented, tbh.
It's not even remotely racist. I did not and am not saying that all (Swedish) Muslims are rapists or murderers, not even most, nor even many.
Right, only the foreigners are. You really don't see the racism in that? Seriously? Also, Bosnia has better rape statistics than Sweden. Which is not difficult, given that Sweden has the highest numbers in Europe (and it did way before refugees started coming in - but of course that is complicated by the fact that the laws are different country by country so, again, it's more complicated that it seems at first glance).
If there was news that the Swedish government want to deal with the recent surge of child abuse and I would make a joke that "uh-oh the Catholics are at it again" it wouldn't rustle any non-Catholic jimmies. And even a lot of Catholics would politely chuckle. Indeed it would be bigoted of me not to make fun of Muslims, just because it's Muslims.
To reiterate what @MadVader said, it wouldn't rustle any feathers because Catholics are in a position of power in Western countries, so you (or anything else) saying that is not representative of an actual threat to them. That's why they can afford to chuckle. I promise they wouldn't if people were constantly threatening to expel them from the country they live in because of their religion.
Immigrant Muslims on the other hand are being targeted every day (and in fact the SVT made that report because anti immigrant sentiments where a pretty strong topic in the political conversation).
I would even go so far as to say that anti immigrant sentiments might play a big role in why so many of those convictions were for foreigners, although of course I have no way of proving that because there is no data available on the demographics of people being accused of rape vs people being convicted.
Edit: interesting read on rape in nordic countries, about two years old. https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/n...al-violence-in-nordic-countries-consent-laws/
Edit n.2: just to be clear, saying that you are being racist is not a judgement on you as a person. Honestly, I believe that most people discriminate others based on a variety of factors, to different degrees, myself included. The point is that you have to be aware that you are doing it, and you have to be aware that it's wrong so that you can try and do better as time goes by.
