Are the Spanish (from Spain) as racist as people say they are?

Skylaris Alanis 2012/07/15 17:43:55
I heard from another user on this site and all around the internet that Spaniards look down on/hate black people and mestizo/ latinos.

Is this true? I'm going to Barcelona with my friend's family in a few weeks, I don't want to be hated...

    To a degree that is true, though in my experience the Germans and Czechs are far worse. Europe does not generally have the political correctness that we do here when it comes to race, which many Americans find alarming.

    I would probably call it being blunt more than being racist. If you hang out with some locals for awhile you will see what I mean.

    Unfortunately, I have only been to Dublin's airport for a flight layover, so I did not get a chance to visit. I do plan on it though, as Its a place I have always wanted to see.

    Oh, and funny you should mention the French. I mentioned them in a post above :)
  • waterny... Jester ... 2012/07/15 18:14:34
    Do visit! I'd say you will love it ! The west is the best though:) I live in the south which is ok and the east is grand for shopping and stuff. Don't consider the north part of ireland. Most of them hate us and worship the brits. And ya I HATED france found them all extremely snobby and not at all accomadating...

    I don't think so....they could be, maybe because of the Moors and all, but surely they would have recovered from that by now...
