Sweden’s Closet Racists

Here is an article that recently was written in the New York Times by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, a Swedish novelist and author. It tells the heartbreaking story of institutional racism experienced by a native Swede, throughout his childhood and adulthood, because he is not white. I dare you to read this piece and come out thinking that racial profiling by the police or any other institution is in any way a good thing for society.
