  • On the train, graffiti on the outside of the windows coloring the world. I’m going to the airport, on my way home from a meeting. I am thinking about where to draw that line.

    I am committed to fighting racism. I try to make an effort every day, in some way, even if it is a small one. And I have pledged never to let racist comments or jokes pass when I am present.

    But where do you draw the line? This day I felt I should have drawn it sooner. They were discussing the amount of muslims that live in different parts of nordic countries. Mabye you could say that there is nothing wrong with that. But really. What kind of topic is that? Why would anyone talk about the numbers of muslims in different places if you didn’t consider it a problem?

    Yes, I should have said something. I should. But I didn’t.
