Map shows world's 'most racist' countries (and the answers may surprise you)


  • Jordan and India named the world's least tolerant countries
  • U.S., Britain, Canada and South America are among the least racist
  • Survey asks people if they would want neighbours of a different race


The global social attitudes study claims that the most racially intolerant populations are all in the developing world, with Jordan and India in the top five.

By contrast, the study of 80 countries over three decades found Western countries were most accepting of other cultures with Britain, the U.S., Canada and Australia more tolerant than anywhere else.

Racism: This map shows the nations of the world where people have the most and least tolerant attitudes

The data came from the World Value Survey, which measured the social attitudes of people in different countries, as reported by the Washington Post.

The survey asked individuals what types of people they would refuse to live next to, and counted how many chose the option 'people of a different race' as a percentage for each country.
Researchers have suggested that societies where more people do not want neighbours from other races can be considered less racially tolerant.


The country with the highest proportion of 'intolerant' people who wanted neighbours similar to them was Jordan, where 51.4 per cent of the population would refuse to live next to someone of a different race.

Next was India with 43.5 per cent.


Racist views are strikingly rare in the U.S., according to the survey, which claims that only 3.8 per cent of residents are reluctant to have a neighbour of another race.

Diverse: The multicultural U.S. is among the least racially intolerant countries, according to the data

Other English-speaking countries once part of the British Empire shared the same tolerant attitude - fewer than five per cent of Britons, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders showed signs of racism.

People in the UK are also tolerant of other differences such as speaking a foreign language or practising an alternative religion - for example, fewer than two per cent of Britons would object to having neighbours of a different faith to them.
Similarly, fewer than one in 20 people in most South American countries admitted harbouring prejudice against other races.

The Middle East, which is currently dealing with large numbers of low-skilled immigrants from south Asia, seems to be a hotbed of racial tension, however.

Europe is remarkably split - the west of the continent is generally more tolerant than the east, but France is a striking outlier with 22.7 per cent of the French rejecting neighbourhood diversity.
Some have pointed out problems in the survey data, claiming that because the polls span a long period of time they are an unreliable guide to current attitudes.

However, a more serious flaw could be the fact that in most Western countries racism is so taboo than many people will hide their intolerant views and lie to the questioners.

Max Fisher of the Washington Post suggested that maybe 'Americans are conditioned by their education and media to keep these sorts of racial preferences private, i.e. to lie about them on surveys, in a way that Indians might not be'.

Naysayers would still say we should be part of India rather than be on our own---what a reverse logic.



For those people, I say, just go on youtube and search " Aghuri " AND if after watching just a few videos they still wanna be a part of India then let them be.

I for one, count Aghuris and their evil practices among many many reasons for the 2 nation theory - Just my opinion!!!

Yeh you are right, thats why PM nawaz sharif said that the divide between India & Pakistan is just a line, we are same, we eat same thing, same norms , same everything.

Hats off for your PM Nawaz Sharif, the true Muslim Leaguee, who Doesn't accept the "Two Nation Theory" :)

I agree with this post i am in Australia i have seen only few cases of racism only i can count in my finger tips may 15 or 20 and also people really discourage this type of attitude in Australia. very friendly and caring nation and people with different race and religions lives as a community and don't care about each other beliefs as long as they don't try to impose their beliefs and ideas on others.

pakistani gujjars are educated and forward looking progressive non racist people .

indian gujjars are uneducated and backward and racist , that is true . why ?

because pakistani gujjars came from arabia alongwith md.bin qasim

the same things stand true for jats , rajputs , arains, chuhdas, pathans all pakistani citizens.

I wasnt talking about " A few Pakistanis ". I was talking about Something that is a very big part of India especially in religious form.

Looks like I have spoken on a sensitive topic for Indian people.

It's good, if you make fun of it or talk about it, the more you do the more people will become aware of it and that's all I wanted.

Thank you for doing my job for me
