Is Finland nice? What's the common language?
Finns speak Finnish although 5% come from a Swedish-speaking family
That’s a tough question though isn’t it? I’ve never lived outside Finland so I speak from a limited perspective but overall I doubt I could be happier anywhere else. It’s a great home for bohemian types because socialist government provides free education and a whole bunch of safety nets. Good for introverts as well since social etiquette is all about quality over quantity (i.e. we don’t do small talk or chat up strangers in public)
It’s a country with a depressing culture and long winters; it’s not for everyone but it’s perfect for me
As a Black person, that comment didn't offend me in the least. In fact, I'd say that was a compliment. even still, I don't understand why you would be called a racist. Nothing you said was hateful. The thing is, opinions on tumblr gets rolled over and name calling is quick. Again, nothing you said was wrong, but you'll have to pick and choose what you want to say when it comes to sharing your opinion here whether it's positive or negative (it's sad really).
Alright, thanks for your input!
I was a little weirded out by the accusation but then again what do I know? I’ve said and done shitty things before without realizing it so I figure the smartest thing to do is to ask someone to explain what’s up. It’s much easier than insisting that I’m faultless, anyway
Welp I guess it’s about time I got called racist for making a comment about black people. Maybe it wasn’t the best possible wording idk? I apologize to anyone who’s bothered by it though I’m not sure why that’s the case. I’m willing to learn, by all means educate me
Black people are a small minority in Finland = this is a fact, only 3.4% of the population are immigrants while most of those are white Europeans. I don’t imply it’s a good thing, we have a lot to learn from Sweden. I sorta admire anyone who manages to stay here at all because this is a notoriously difficult country to migrate to. Finns are withdrawn/racist, the language is impossible and the climate sucks, for starters
Chances are they’re well dressed = this is observation. I admit it could be confirmation bias but often when I spot a fashionable person in central Helsinki they tend to be non-white. White Finns dress like crap most of the time, myself included
