Off topic, but in case you're following this thread... there was an interesting study on racism in Europe some years ago. They found that racism is about the same everywhere, but the effects of racism are quite different.
In a country like Finland, everything is "by the book". There are rules, and they are followed strictly. That means that if I, as a foreigner, am applying for a loan, the loan officer might be a horrible racist, but if I qualify I'll get the loan anyway. In a country like Italy the loan officer has more discretion and is more likely to find some reason to deny the loan if they happen to dislike me personally.
