Racism continues to be a major problem throughout the world. It divides continents, countries and even villages over race, religion or just skin color. Despite laws and International intervention, racism is still very much a problem today in many countries. This list looks at the 10 most racist countries in the world.

As a whole, racism is bad for society, but gets even worse when it manifests into slavery, segregation, genocide and war. Obviously any war or event where lives are taken is the pinnacle of racism, but it starts with basic discrimination that is not typically tied to quality of life or even region of the world. This is a widespread problem that continues to be a work in progress.

Two countries that just missed the list are United Kingdom and Australia. The British don’t like anyone coming from India living in their world. They also show spite toward the neighboring French as well as other Asian and Western countries. In Britain, race becomes political with parties attempting to draw lines on which immigrants should be welcomed in their country. In recent years Australia has created stricter laws to dampen discrimination; however, there continues to be hate against “outsiders”, specifically Indians who are often targeted and find themselves the victim of hate crimes.

Racism is degrading and wrong, a lot of what is referred to as “radical” racism has been abolished; however, there are many countries where racism still prevails. Here’s a list of those countries.

Racism in India is pretty straight forward which makes it even worse than these other examples. A child is taught early on in Indian culture that people with white skin are superior to people with dark skin, hence, the hatred toward Africans and other countries with dark skin. What’s surprising is how India doesn’t really acknowledge this attitude; instead, insisting they live in a culture rich in diversity that doesn’t discriminate. In addition to this clearly racist viewpoint, there is xenophobia, a division between the Hindus and Muslims as well as people from the regions of Marathi Manoos and Biharis.
