Sweden mulls mandatory classes for refugees

"Integration involves more than just self-support and language knowledge, it also involves feeling involved in and an affinity with society," wrote Integration Minister Nyamko Sabuni, from the Liberal Party (Folkpartiet), in an article on her Ministry website, which was also printed in the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper's debate page.

“All people who live and work in Sweden must be familiar with the meaning of democracy, equality and respect for all people’s equal worth, and young people’s freedom to make their own life choices,” she wrote.

The government will shortly present a reform designed to speed up the process of newcomers’ establishment in the workplace. A large part of the reform will deal with the division of responsibility and governance of establishment efforts for people arriving for the first time in Sweden. But the reform will also deal with new arrivals feeling involved in and an affinity with their new country.

The minister suggests the reform is needed due to the changing nature of immigration to Sweden.

"Earlier immigrants were mostly work immigrants. They learned Swedish quickly and were integrated within Swedish society through their work colleagues. But in the last decades a much larger proportion of those who are granted permanent residence have come to Sweden seeking protection," she wrote.

The inquiry – “Self responsibility – with professional support” – which is the basis for the proposed reform, emphasises the increased need for new immigrants to receive information about society. Accordingly, the government will shortly initiate a consultation to take forward the proposal and to consider the appropriate content, format and scope of the orientation course.

Story continues below…

The reform represents a major overhaul of Sweden's structures and policy relating to the integration of immigrants. The responsibility for educating immigrants about the traditions, rules and structure of Swedish society earlier rested with the language programme Swedish for Immigrants ('svenska för invandrare'), or SFI, until this responsibility was transferred to county councils two years ago. SFI now only provides language tuition for new arrivals.

“The type of information that new arrivals receive therefore depends upon which county council they live in, and it is also unclear how many immigrants really take part in the society information sessions,” Sabuni wrote.

I think it would be a good idea as long as any classes base their content on fact and not the normal false statements perpetuating ' världsklass' standards that don't exist. Anyone that goes to another country should understand how and what goes on if they are to integrate into society.

One thing that always bothers me though is Nyamko Sabuni who does very little tangible activity for integration bar stand as the token black person for a government that cares very little for the inequality of non whites. She really sells blacks down the river for her pot of gold.

c,c,c, when will other countries make such rule for Swedish people? In my country, foreigners are free to do what they want about language and culture, only Western hegemonic authorities imagine anything to push foreigners this or that. I am not surprised, as it is visible that right wing extremists got position of government. They don't know how to make new job places, but they know how to be obsessed with foreigners.

@Random Guy,

Just two questions.

1. Where do you come from, it sounds utopian?

2. If it is so good, why do you not live there?

I think you are living in some delusional sense of reality. I have never heard of a country in the world that does not have some ethnic/racial segregation or persecution.
12:31 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty
Well why not have the token African bring down the hammer on the Africans who relocate to Sverige? She surely will make the color-less Swedish public feel good about themselves for not being the racist that they are. Nonetheless, the real question is will the biological inability of color-less people cause them to realize that they need more Invandrares (Immigrants) or will they become an old nation with too few people to operate a country. Since though Sweden has generous maternity and child welfare programs it's "white" population is still declining. Swedish women and men are having trouble procreating, how will Sweden survive without immigrants if the "white population "can't replenish its own? Stop with indoctrination of Swedish values (whatever that is, could it be enslaving people and receiving free labor from them?)

Svenskodd; your twisted and sick in the head.
12:35 September 3, 2009 by Erwin Mahnke
In the Netherlands they are doing just that and the government released a statement last week that special efforts have to be taken to break to low participation rate. The immigrants were just not going to these course, because that's the last they are interested in.

Of course, in the land of breastfeeding men these things will go much smoother....
12:36 September 3, 2009 by CarlBlack

Where have you noticed something about not keeping own language or culture in the article?

And do not confuse refugee and foreigner. Foreigners are free to do anything according to laws, but refugees are in fact asking the state for a help, hence they must of course accept the conditions to be granted this help.
12:46 September 3, 2009 by CarlBlack
Re-Horakhty: Can you provide a proof of your statement about declining population, some statistics? Currently the birth rate is higher than death rate. The fact that average population becomes older is the result of improved health care. As for your accusation of svenskodd: the only twisted person here is you, you are speaking about enslaving people without any reason

@random guy

In your country like in Sweden or anywhere in the planet There good things and bad things.....but everything in life life is like this no ??? You can´t say you want to be married and have kids and live like if you were single....

If you can´t cope with those classes you have to say no to welfare, free education and health offered to you.....and live to paradise...
12:55 September 3, 2009 by Nemesis
This is a good start. However I would go a lot further.

All people immigrating to Europe, should be made to swear an oath to protect Europe from all outside influences and anti-democratic politics, to uphold European all human rights laws without exception, to defend the rights of all minorities, to make every attempt to assimilate completely into European culture, to raise there children as european and to learn at minimum the local language of the area they live.

If someone has a political issue with Europe they should not be allowed into Europe and be immediatley deported upon being found out to have such an opinion.

If they come to Europe with no intention of contributing to European society, they should be made to leave.
13:04 September 3, 2009 by magic1964
Many refugees have lied to get asylum and hope to live on welfare with some black work as long as posssible !!! and this is really easy thanks to all left wing innocent and naïve imbecile we have home...
13:38 September 3, 2009 by antoniolgj
"All people who live and work in Sweden must be familiar with the meaning of democracy, equality and respect for all people's equal worth, and young people's freedom to make their own life choices,"

Is this some kind of joke? These people don't want that.

They want the posit of it, turn Sweden into a hellhole just like where they came from.

From their point of view Malmo is still a WIP with a lot to be done...

Sorry I need to go to the toilet, I'm feeling a bit sick...
13:39 September 3, 2009 by Beynch
Since Sweden clearly needs immigration to sustain her well being in the years to come, the only thing certain is that she can not do what it did under the social democrats' stewardship in the matter. To just open the gates and give them a key to an apartment in Rosengård evidently does not work. Sweden must ensure that all immigrants, refugeees or otherwise, are willing to assimilate. She MUST provide more than just `orientation`, i.e. direct exposure and confrontation with Swedish culture and behavioral norms. It must be made clear that immigrants can NOT continue their primitive old ways from back home. Figuratively put, they must forced to respect our historical Christian values and "eat inlagd sill and pork chops with gravy".

In Europe 2.1 children per woman is considered to be the population replacement level. These are national averages:

Ireland: 1.99

France: 1.90

Norway: 1.81

Sweden 1.75

UK: 1.74

Netherlands: 1.73

Germany: 1.37

Italy: 1.33

Spain: 1.32

Greece: 1.29

Source: Eurostat - 2004 figure

It is a well known fact that the sun causes skin cancer in "White" people more than any other people on this Earth, but what a lot of people don't realize is that the sun also sterilizes "Whites". The lack of melanin or pigment leaves "Whites" vulnerable to photolysis. The decomposition of folate or folic acid in the blood levels is critical for cell replication and reproduction. This is the real reason behind the LOW Caucasian birthrates. The experienced problems with fertility are not behavioral but biological one that cannot seem to be controlled. The foliate levels plummet by up to 50% when exposed to solar radiation, and even in the radiation in tanning salons. The genetically deficient genes give ABSOLUTELY NO benefit in nature, in tropical, temperament climates OR northern cold climates. I therefore anbefalla (recommend) that as many good melanated people are allowed into this country so that it may not fall into ruin. Look what's happening to ALL the Eastern and Southern European countries; looks what happening in Japan; the Japanese are in such a state of denial, that their playing video games and the men are turning into effeminate women while the women are not marrying or can't have babies when they try. Is this Sveriges (Sweden's) future?
13:48 September 3, 2009 by AnatoleE
Reading comments here is getting more unpleasant and creepy by the day. Xenophobic nationalists on one side and immigrants/foreigners spouting outlandish rhetoric on the other.
14:04 September 3, 2009 by Beynch

Your comment was second most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. `Vulnarable to photolysis`? Where in heaven's name did you get such nonsense? Foliate levels? Genetically deficient gene? You're using words straight out of Orwell or Huxley. Unless your blurb was intended as a joke, a bad one, it's laughable. I'd pay money to find out what ethnic group you belong to.
14:30 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty

I have a degree in Molecular biology. What do you have? Hopefull racist thinking. AHHHHHHHHH!!

Many of you color-less / Inbred Mutant Albinos believe everything you see on t.v but not what is in front of your eyes.

I've done the research but here are some great starters for you to read... http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,331949,00.html

"White people" are inbred mutant albinos by the way, if you did not know. Sorry to bust your bubble.

Lets see if you can Intelligently prove me wrong without disparaging me (Calling me names).

I doubt it.

Im guessing you immigrated here as I did.

Skin color and nutrient photolysis: an evolutionary hypothesis

RF Branda and JW Eaton

Human populations native to areas of intense sunlight tend to be heavily melanized. Previous explanations for this relationship have invoked only weak selective pressures. To test the hypothesis that dark pigmentation may protect against photolysis of crucial light-sensitive vitamins and metabolites by ultraviolet light, folate was used as a model. It was found that exposure of human plasma in vitro to simulated strong sunlight causes 30 to 50 percent loss of folate within 60 minutes. Furthermore, light-skinned patients exposed to ultraviolet light for dermatologic disorders have abnormally low serum folate concentrations, suggesting that photolysis may also occur in vivo. Deficiency of folate, which occurs in many marginally nourished populations, causes severe anemia, fetal wastage, frank infertility, and maternal mortality. Prevention of ultraviolet photolysis of folate and other light sensitive nutrients by dark skin may be sufficient explanation for the maintenance of this characteristic in human groups indigenous to regions of intense solar radiation!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh

All other "races" are but diluted variations of? Why dont you take a guess Beynch, and try not use your silly defintions such as "ethnic". Lets just stick with who has the most MELANIN. Tick Tock Tick Tock. I check back later, need to go to the gym.
14:47 September 3, 2009 by CarlBlack
Re-Horakhty: I doubt that this weird hypothesis is meant seriously, since only a hundred years ago and sooner European birth rate was much higher than now. No biological reasons, only behavioral. Rate of children per woman is a bit tricky information, because it has to be extrapolated or estimated - otherwise you could count in only women after reaching let say 50 years of age. I agree that this rate or birth rate is lower than in past, but this more or less compensates the longer average age, which means also a longer productive age. Population is growing even without immigration counted, see for example http://www.scb.se/Pages/ProductTables____25809.aspx

And do you prefer to live in a country with excessive birth rate and a poor level of living, or the opposite one? And don't you think these things are connected?
14:47 September 3, 2009 by DreEstwd

I've got a much simpler answer for you. The reason Swedes don't have 5 kids running around the house is because they are smart enough not to have more kids than they can afford. Also, Sweden definitely does not need third-world immigrants to come to their country in order for it to continue its existence. In actuality, it's those 3rd world refugees who are RUINING the country with crime and a f-ed up sense of social values.

ABOUT Re-Horakhty - he joined today. 030909

I think he is one of those trolls who has really nothing to say, but says it anyways!

I have not seen such nonsence in a long time. A person who wants to be educated but who's brain just cannot put all the pieces together!

Trying to prove racial superiority is something that children do and lesser evolved people do! If this poor guy is real then he has not evolved very far. He has a LONG way to go before he will find some resemblance of maturity.

There is a really neat feature in this discussion engine where if you go to his PROFILE and click on his profile options and choose "Add to PM Block List", his comments will be blanked out.

15:19 September 3, 2009 by Beynch

Based on your choice vernacular and tone it is unlikely that you have a degree in molecular biology. If, so where did you get it? In a cereal box? Or under some affirmative action edict? You are also right, I could not possibly prove you wrong without calling you names and disparaging you. But your oafish commentary speaks for itself, although it looks like you're parroting someone else's vocabulary. Is this now the latest protected group, `melanin deficient individuals`? Along with race, religion, sexual orientation, and nationality? You are also right in the fact that you do need to the gym.

I should have said,

Yah, little things like number of mitochondria per race, he forgot male vs female.

If he was educated he would know that the more educated the women are, the lower the birth rate! (and the more they enjoy sex!)

He would also know that the world is overpopulated! Very important stuff for a Biologist!
15:51 September 3, 2009 by Beynch

You're wrong! Re-Horakhty is not a `he`. It's a `she`!!
15:55 September 3, 2009 by magic1964
Threat them to take away all the money they receive and they will lear Swedish very fast...So many refugees have lied about their identity, many are criminals. They come from such a corrupt countries.
16:26 September 3, 2009 by La Figaro
@Re-Horakhty let's face it, I don't doubt your having a degree in molecular biology but I've come to realise that certain aspects of science is actually racist (NOTE: I'M BLACK), some can only apply over thousands or millions of years, some under 'special conditions/factors', some fraudulent (you may call it subjective for instance, they said Pluto shouldn't be a planet anymore; pyramids of Egypt wasn't built by black egyptians but Caucasian egyptians, the list is endless) etc etc etc.

I don't quite agree with you because the decline in childbirth in Europe has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING with genes (in my opinion) rather with lifestyle choices, the me-me-me atitude, education, career, better awareness & contraceptives etc.

I do support the idea of such trainings/teaching for refugees and maybe other immigrants who opt for it because it can help them settle in better, also they may not understand swedish initially so fitting in and understanding these things can be quite hard initially, especially considering the swedish coldness.
16:54 September 3, 2009 by mike0017
Meanwhile The Local ignores ACTUAL news.

""Ethnologist Maria Bäckman, in her study "Whiteness and gender," has followed a group of Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby outside Stockholm, where natives have been turned into a minority of the inhabitants due to immigration. The subjects "may encounter prejudices such as the idea that Swedish girls act and dress in a sexually provocative way or that blonde girls are easy." Bäckman relates that several of the Swedish girls she interviewed stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid sexual harassment. They experienced that being blonde involves old men staring at you, cars honking their horns and boys calling you "whore."""
17:07 September 3, 2009 by mkvgtired
Re-Horakhty, you bring up some good points. I am willing to bet since these are official stats they include immigrants in the birthrate averages. This skews the numbers. If adjusted for "native" people of the countries you list the birth rates would probably be much lower.
17:07 September 3, 2009 by Beynch
@ Le Figaro: I very much doubt that this woman Re-Horakhty is a molecular biologist. She appears to lack the necessary cognitive abilities for such an achievement.

@mike0017: I have a lot more faith in Bäckman's research than in this pathetic `molecular biologist` whose gobble-di-gook is only good for a quick chuckle. - Right now I'm waiting hear from her when she comes back from the gym.
17:15 September 3, 2009 by mkvgtired
I would like to add when I said good points I was referring to the situation in Japan. All Western benefit systems are set up for current taxpayers to fund those currently in need. Basically you pay now assuming that future generations will pay for you. That being said countries with below replacement birthrates need immigration for their government services to continue running smoothly. This does not mean they need 3rd world immigrants who rely solely on the Western nation's welfare system. In my experience Chinese and Indian immigrants may come from impoverished beginnings but their culture of hard work with an emphasis on education has made them very successful. This is just what I have seen first hand, but may not be true everywhere. Feel free to add input if you feel otherwise.
17:22 September 3, 2009 by mike0017
mkvgtired: Or Sweden could simply have more Swedish children.

That, or switch to an economic system that doesn't involve inviting ethnic and cultural foreigners to ruin what, admittedly, USED to be a very good thing. As science has proven, the more ethnically diverse a community is, the less happy it becomes.
17:37 September 3, 2009 by waspy
Re-Horakhty, how does replacing the Swedish people with a foreign population rectify the problem of the declining number of Swedes?

Was the small number of aboriginal people in Australia corrected by importing millions of Europeans or did it just displace the aborigines from their lands without any real benefit to their people?
18:06 September 3, 2009 by magic1964
As long as they get everything for free they will take everything for granted...Workers can continue to pay high taxes.
18:30 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty
Since Caucasians cannot reproduce genetic material (melanin), they could not have spawned humanity. Because the sun sterilizes and is sending Whites on a course toward extinction, they will not survive independently for very long without people of color depositing their genetic material to make their cell replication and reproduction more feasible. Caucasians are becoming extinct in Europe just like everywhere else on the planet showing NON-ADAPTATION. White gene DNA cannot be traced back as far as their genetic parents, BLACK AFRICANS! The result is sufficient evidence for their not being the progenitors of humanity or civilization. The deficient genes simply will not last that long in the presence of a majority black/brown people. Their birthrates globally are below replacement levels, and even if they didn't have to worry about being bred out of existence by black/brown genes, their numbers would still dwindle because of victimization by photolysis.

Allow Invandrares (immigrants) to help Sweden, God knows it will need it.

Peace and Amen-Re

Re-Horakhty's science fiction aside I'd be pleased as punch if these classes would teach people to cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.

My day isn't complete unless I walk through a spray of someone's mucus on the tunnelbana.

Is it that hard to cover one's mouth?

Okay, intermission over. Back to Re-Horakhty and her version of soylent green.

18:42 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty
Whites cannot reproduce anything but themselves! Through powerful propaganda and indoctrination we have been completely oblivious to what having white skin really means. We have been skillfully mislead to believe that white skin is mankind's anthropological model and should be coveted. However, recent research paints a picture of white skin that is just the antithesis of what we have been brainwashed to believe. The polar bear analysis that was done by the Discovery Channel helps prove my point. If you shave the hair off a polar bear, the skin beneath is black. In nature the skin of the polar bear is black to absorb as much heat and light as possible to keep the arctic animal warm in its environment. It is also true for the Eskimo (Inuit). Human adaptation remains an insufficiently studied part of climate and climate change. Scientists have tried for years to prove that the environment was responsible for altering heredity.

Wow!! Color-less extinction will occur easier than I thought.

You people are in DEEP DENIAL. RECESSIVE GENES CAN NOT HOLD UP AGAINST DOMINANT ONES. But hey, I'm speaking to a group of people that lie to themselves on a regular basis.
19:04 September 3, 2009 by Beynch
Jeeeez! I thought I had heard it all. But after Re-Horakhty's last diatribe even I am stunned and left speechless. I'm going out on a limb and say that the only thing with melanin on that woman is her black fishnet pantyhose. WITH seams! I'm now not going to respond any more. It's a waste of time. She is not serious.
19:17 September 3, 2009 by waspy
Re-Horakhty, light skin is better at keeping people warm than black skin as it allows more light to pass through the skin and warm the blood inside the body.

Black skin will collect heat on the surface but will not allow as much heat to pass through through the skin and warm the blood.

Why would people become darker in warm climates and lighter in cold climates if dark skin makes people warmer instead of cooler?

Wouldn't that be odd and wouldn't it have resulted, through migration and natural selection, in white people becoming the majority in Africa and black people becoming the majority in Europe?

Have you ever thought about why Arab women wear dark colored clothes instead of light colored clothes?

Please read through the study titled "The Effects Of Black And White Garments On Thermoregulation Under Warm Conditions With Sun Radiation"

They conclude that people wearing white garments had higher feet temperature, higher levels of sweat and higher body mass loss than people wearing black garments in the same conditions.
19:33 September 3, 2009 by peropaco
I dont see why anyone here is getting bent out of shape for the coments made by Horakhty. I have seeing worts things displayed here by people who would totally run out and linch a muslim or immigrants for the only reason of being alive. Every time something goes wrong in Sweden is because of the Muslims. Yet I don't see most of the actors here that finds Re-Horakhty comments outrageous running in defence of the Muslims or refugees. You are a whole heaps of hypocrites. I think the reason of the low Swedish birth rate is because people don't bang. They'll rather get drunk than to try to bring back the good old romance. Take a good look at most Swedish girls-women and you will see someone lacking a good old fashioned banging. I am not referring to the in-an-out banging but rather the romance. The 4 play, the squeeze of the buns, the ni-pples and all the goodies which comes with it. That my opinion why the birth rate is darn low in the Sweden where I live...
20:17 September 3, 2009 by Ijustam
I´m surprised to see how many people are still unaware of how racist it can be in so many places in the world. Every country has its fair share of history in it, but then you always have a few who believe that they are entitled to everything. That is what seperates those who understands the meaning of freedom and those who take it for granted. For anyone who had been to war-torn countries to return home to a life of relative security, freedom takes on a different meaning--that it is neither free or offered without reciprocity. What a lot of people offer instead is a veil of feigned intelligence by regurgitating verbage they´ve read in some website, science or globalization journals. How long does it take to screw in a lightbulb anyway? Perhaps another thousand years of war? A lot can be solved by simple common sense. Sweden has a right to self-determination like any other soverign nation. As such, it is naturally not going to be run as a multi-nationalistic country, which should not be confused with multi-culturism. Don´t be fooled into believing cries of foul play and racism is always going to be your golden ticket. Common sense goes a long way. Allowing yourself to be indoctrinated into closed-mindedness or extremity is more dangerous that any religion. This is how beautiful ideas become corrupted. People fall into this trap and all they have left is the intelligence their enemies do not care about to entertain.
20:54 September 3, 2009 by bettan1

Stop to read an otherwise interesting article and what do I find ??? More people dressed in brown shirts and polished Jack Boots discussing the latest "Lebensborn" philosophy. Maybe the Upsala Race Biological Institute started by the infamous 'Eugen Fischer' can start back up their famed Eugenics program for the immigrants so that all the Nordics and Germanics can feel homogenus again.
21:01 September 3, 2009 by Beynch

How do you figure that Bettan? The true racist in the above string of contributors is this female humanoid calling herself a `molecular biologist`. She is the one in brown shirt and jackboots. Although she might actually look good in jack boots.
21:28 September 3, 2009 by CarlBlack
waspy: No need to comment on Re-Horakhty any longer, just the color and sun issue: one should be very careful about relating color and temperature, I don't think there is a significant relation. First of all it is not important what is the color (i.e. reflectivity) in visible spectrum, but in the infrared one. Second, the role of melanin is mainly to protect from dangerous UV rays, not to influence heat absorption. And in the end the most important in cold conditions will be the loss of heat, the source of heat is mainly the body chemistry and not the sun. And this is controlled mainly by the amount of fat under skin...

well, and importance of polar bear's skin color ... this girl really makes me laugh

Beynch: absolutely agree
21:31 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty

You sre so right!! As a Blackman I have noticed as much as Swedes try to play as if their not racist they sure want you to feel as if their superior (which they are not, color-less people are a genetically recessive group i.e. inbred albinos)

Look how many of these bloggers can not pose a cogent argument against the scientific fact that color-less people are a dying recessive group who are always make up excuses to attack people of color due to their fear of genetic annihliation. Nonetheless, it's going to happen. Nature has chosen caucasians for extinction. You have to decided if thats good or bad, but that is what will happen.

Hej Da God natt!!
21:41 September 3, 2009 by waspy
Re-Horakhty, the decline in the white population is not a result of genetics.

It is cultural.

Look at the birth rates of the Amish or Mormon populations in the US.

Even though the Amish and Mormons are white their birth rates are higher than most Africans.

That's probably a result of their very traditional religious upbringing just as non-white immigrants in Europe, who have traditional religious upbringing, have higher rates of fertility than the secular, liberal Swedes.
22:02 September 3, 2009 by Re-Horakhty

Your lying to yourself.Africans in America out number caucasians in EVERY metropolitan city (where most Americans are located, Not Pennsylvania)

Indeed, Utah (where Mormoms primarly live in the State) is declining in population, so its quite absurd that you use them as an example. I don't want to win this argument becuase I know am right. The only thing people of color really need to worry about is; caucasians who are losing power across the globe due to their small numbers as well as Asian and Africans taking back their lands, may try to Nuke the world as goodbye present.

Look this word up; Melanin. Its not insignificant. And people of color who have high amounts of it are genetically stonger than whites. Look up this fox link:http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,331949,00.html

Whites Genetically Weaker Than Blacks, Study Finds

wasp@ by the way, many young white women want nothing to with whiteman. They are physically not attracted to them, indeed, caucasian woman in their late 20' and 30's are flocking into the arms of colored men. It's bad across the board for white racist man. For if they really believed in what they pontificate that we should all love one another and be measured on merit, their would be a rapid extinction of the caucasian, instead their will be a slow transition.

"caucasians who are losing power across the globe due to their small numbers as well as Asian and Africans taking back their lands, may try to Nuke the world as goodbye present."

Sorry, I'm trying to follow your logic of black supremacy, but there is a small part missing in this puzzle.

If so, why we have the bomb and you the hunger? We have the money and you the poverty? We build societies and you beg to live in? We live in nice houses and you in ghettos? We drive nice cars and you wash them? We use toilets and you wash them?

I'd like to know…

Re-Horakhty the comment you made about Utah was obviously made without research on your part.

The population of Utah in 1980 was 1.46 million and it rose over 17% by 1990 to 1.72 million. Between 1990 and 2000 the population rose another 29.6% to 2.23 million. Between 200 and 2008 it rose another 22.5% to 2.7 million.

BTW, interracial relationships are very small compared to same-race relationships and when they do occur they tend to be non-committed relationships.

When women settle down to get married and/or have children they tend to have same-race relationships.

Poor White people never want to recognize themselves as slaves or indentured servants taking care of their Master

I live in a beautiful apartment in Sodermalm and have a house in South Africa.

You need to get out more and see the poverty in Eastern Europe, indeed the United States.

And you boast of having a great war machine? White people tend to forget that

their own people in their Armies

will shoot them down at a moments

notice. The biggest killers,

murderers and ravishers of White

people is White people.

But this is a idea you can not grasp and that is your recsessive species will go out, and it will go out with a wimper.

This is not Black supremacy this is the truth. Colorless people have to get over the fact that they were born with out melanin.

Europeans are just beginning to

learn that they are of different

species within their own group.

These different species, sexually

speaking, cannot reproduce babies

23:12 September 3, 2009 by Kaethar
Are people still listening to Re-Horakhty? He's clearly a black supremacist whose wish is to displace whites from Europe. I know his type. And his views are bullshit so just ignore them.

@Random Guy: No, they aren't. And if you allow expatriate populations into your country that is your problem, not ours. Such expatriates also work, live there temporarily, and live within their own bubble. Refugees come to Sweden for help and live on welfare. They NEED to integrate. If you don't realise this you're more dense than I thought.

@Re-Horakhty: As has been said, did importing Brits help Australia's underpopulation issues? It is clear that if someone has been let into the country, and NOT as a working migrant, that they MUST adapt to this country. You flee here and you must live here by our rules and values. Otherwise a refugee could have fled to a number of peaceful countries closer to home.

Mike0017, Good points. Easier said than done though. How do you get people to have children? The financial incentives are there in the Western world, yet it is not working. Switching to a new system of government services would be close to impossible in any Western nation, but especially a high tax/high government service nation like Sweden. It would involve DRASTICALLY reducing the tax rate and government services to a level that could be supported by a dwindling population. That said people who are in the later stages of life now and count on government funds and services would have to be denied these services, which brings in an ethical dilemma. I agree that Sweden should screen its immigrants to make sure they adhere to Western and namely Swedish values, but expanding government services is ALWAYS much easier than retracting them. Unfortunately I dont have the answer as to what to do.
00:33 September 4, 2009 by Kooritze
Re-Horakhty..........you need help mate. Some serious race issues you have there. Better to chill out and start enjoying life and take people on face value rather than the skin they wear.
01:13 September 4, 2009 by totyis
More money thrown out trough the window. How about considering the unemployment rates in Sweden, closing the door for a while and take care of the people who are already here.

I believe that Re-Horakhty is a white funny guy, probably a comedian, testing reactions from those who are taking him serious.
03:47 September 4, 2009 by Greg in Canada

Over the years I've read a lot of silly things on internet forums but you're near the top of the list. You're either a troll or a real dumb-ass. If nothing else, you're entertaining.

Re-Horakhty, the decline in birthrate of europeans and whites HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR GENES rather with other factors. Read my earlier post. Their gene mutation has stabilised & won't change unless certain factors especially their weather/climate changes.

You were almost correct on some details but missed it. From history, archaeology, paleontology and anthropology, earth was one massive land before it split up, man originated from Africa and first ones were indeed black.

Waspy, why did europeans wear dark colours? That was the case for many centuries. The study "The Effects Of Black And White Garments On Thermoregulation Under Warm Conditions With Sun Radiation" is flawed in some areas so isn't entirely correct. Blacks do 'tan' you know, they get slightly darker under the sun and lighten up a bit when away from sunlight for a while. As at few centuries ago, the actual geographic spread of man was largely due to their skin tone and weather. Put white people in a very sunny place, two things will happen, they'll either start dying from skin cancer or mutate and darken (over a very long time). Simple biology, do your research and ask white australians.
05:52 September 4, 2009 by ppk

Your nickname tell a lot about you...

You said that you have have a degree in Molecular biology and that you are a Black man (or woman) from South Africa living in Södermalm.

Good for you.

Now the question is: Why are you living in Sweden ? The honest answer will demolish your theory (don't tell it's a fact, it's not).

Look for exemple why the Quebec is still a french speaking country in North America, it's only because in the 50's each family (white peoples) had 10 or 12 kids without any reproduction problem. Just take off the pills et the condom and watch how those you called "albinos" can reproduce.

Also, since you are a scientist, there is a reading for you : IQ and the Wealth of Nations, by Dr. Richard Lynn and Dr. Tatu Vanhanen. You will discover (I'm sorry) that the more melanin you have the low IQ you get. Score : Sweden 101, South Africa : 72 (All right, Hong Kong 107, but you are not speaking for the Asians, don't you ?)

101, so I know why you are living in Sweden...

And I know also why it's time, right now, to limit the level of melanin in the North. Because if not, you right, it will be the end, maybe not of the mankind, but certainly of the civilisation.

And without civilisation, mankind is only an animal as the others -- no future. Period.
05:59 September 4, 2009 by jewel22

My brother once said the only way humans will stop racism against them selvess is when ALIENS arrive on earth. Then is no more black, white, asian, latino or what ever, but humans and what ever comes (which i dnt see it happening).

Right from the Caption of this article, i knew it was going to be a platform for both the so called Swedes and the so called Immgrants to bring out their tongues and start a war of modern than times (WORDs).

Oh well, HURRAY to both you guys (Swedes and Immgrants, oh i meant Swede Immgrants), for blaming each other for every shitty and crapy thing you all think. What a pity, for the mordern society that Sweden has created.

Hmm i wonder why the whole of sweden (ppl dnt even remember they are swedes or immgrants) shouts "GOALLLLLLL" when IBRAHIMOVIC scores for the swedish national team. I guess nothing good comes out of immgrants. Or when Christer Fuglesang is in space people are proud to be swedish.

Thx Thelocal you have finally achieve integration and a Xenophobic one indeed.

@wasp SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon population of Utah continues to get smaller.

An Associated Press analysis of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints membership records used by state planning officials to develop population estimates shows that Mormons now make up 60.4 percent of the state's population. That's down from 60.7 percent last year. The percentage has declined every year for nearly two decades and if the trend continues Mormons will make up less than half of Utah's population by 2030.

!!The population of Utah as a whole (2,736,424) is slightly increasing, but many of those people are coming from Mexico.--- ahahahahaha

@Kaethar - You have a funny way of ignoring people. Nonetheless, you said: "did importing Brits help Australia's under-population issues?" Well of course not if they are inbred mutant albinos "Caucasians" as I have already stated are having trouble having babies.

@Kooritze - Sounds good but inbred mutant albinos are never going to get over their obsession with skin

color and their genetic deficiencies. Non-inbred mutant albino people will always have todefend themselves from them.

@La Figaro - No disrespect La Figaro but you're wrong. Blue eye blonde hair white skin come about through a random mutation in the OCA2 gene (6,000-10,000yrs ago) representing avariant of albinism- by definition, not assumption. White skin is not an adaptation because it is now agreed and understood that darker skin is better adapted for even cold climates.

Albinism isn't just a birth defect; it's a mutation.

Never trust white people. Their prime directive is to deceive the world and maintain their inferior genetic strain at all costs. That is the real reason for stem cell research and cloning. As I have pointed out, white people cannot reproduce themselves efficiently like normal black people so they need extra help like cloning, stem cell research and surrogate mothers.

In many parts of the world, white people cannot carry their unborn children to full term because they are victimized by photolysis. Solar radiation depleting their foliate levels keeping cell replication difficult or impossible. So what do they do? Find black women or Indian women or other women of color to carry their children to term for them.

White people are unnatural genetic defects and freaks of nature who cannot function as normal human beings. They should not even exist within the context that we understand them and they certainly should not be ruling over their black genetic parents. Once you understand these key concepts, you are well on your way to understanding what white people are hiding from you, that you should know.

@ppk - You do know that most of the genetic diseases are found in the 'white population".

No attempt to destroy our race-family has been so continuous, so systematic, so extra-ordinary as

that of the color-lesspeople and yet we still rise.
11:27 September 4, 2009 by Kooritze
@Re-Horakhty.............I,ve changed my mind about you.........your just having a laugh ar,nt you mate. You,ve certainly managed to crack this inbred mutant albino up this morning. Great stuff.....keep em coming!
13:00 September 4, 2009 by Beynch

You're right. This woman, Re-Horakhty, did succeed in generating debate, always a good thing, although some on the Sahlin-left would prefer no debate to take place. The theories behind her `science` however need a lot of amending. I think she is the kind of person who has never worked a day in her life, but supports herself being a leech on society, like a stray hound, grabbing whatever spills she can get.
14:35 September 4, 2009 by DamnImmigrant
When I first read this article I was thinking all IMMIGRANTS in general and not just all refugees. Reading the posts helped me to realize the government is ONLY talking about only refugees.

Why would they debate it? JUST DO IT! There is NOTHING remotely racist or prejudiced with making them come to a society orientation course!

I think all immigrants should go. It will not hurt and what you learn will make you life easier and the lives of those around you.

I also believe that ALL immigrants should get SECULARIZED religious training. The reason for the religious training is to create a base level of knowledge for people who have no religious education or whom have BEEN DENIED religious education!

You cannot bring people to the "free" world and then just tell them "good luck, your free!" With education comes knowledge! As an example, Islam is one of those religions that do their best to restrict accurate information about itself and about other religions.

16:37 September 4, 2009 by Leprehcaun
@ Re-Horakhty

You have no right to call anyone a racist, you are one and an embarrassment, who the hell let you into the country? I demand that that idi0t will lose his/her job.

Are you a Sweden Democrat pretending to be black to get people to hate immigrants cause if you do, you're doing a better job than most people can. Congratulations. Jävla ultranationalistiska rasistiska invandrar jävel, du ska bort från Sverige och dra åt helvete. I hope people treat you like sh1t, you sure as hell deserve it. How can say things like that? What the hell have we ever done to you?!

It's people like you who make me feel like it's a good idea to force refugees to return to their home countries when the reason that they came here for is gone and not to allow men from Africa, the middle east and Turkey to immigrate. It sounds better and better every time I hear it, I actually love the idea. We should also throw out all immigrants who commits thefts, violent crimes, frauds and economic crimes. To go on we should throw out racists, like yourself, ethnocentric and nationalistic immigrants. After that we should throw out "Swedes" and Swedes who do that, but first of all, your group. Damn people like you make me think. I'm gonna make a seed out of this idea, hopefully it will get popular.

Don't forget to leave Sweden, right now. You're not welcome, wanted or liked. Get out and stay out.
16:39 September 4, 2009 by Aurora77
International standards call for refugees to be housed as close as possible to their country of origin (with the intention of a swift return to their homeland when the temporarily extreme conditions justifying their expatriation have ended). Clearly Sweden is nowhere near any refugee-producing areas, which has probably contributed heavily to naivety about what to expect from such arrivals. Skyrocketing crime rates, welfare usage, even gang-rapes of indigenous Swedes are facts of life today that were unheard-of before this demographic revolution. Not only has it not been worth whatever compassion cachet Sweden thought to earn in the international competition to be seen as most self-sacrificially altruistic, it is not even necessary under principles of humane outreach. The notion of training classes is farcical - human behavior is deep rooted not only in hard-on-break cultural patterns but also in biology shaped by wildly different selection pressures over tens of thousands of years. Sweden can generously fund refugee camps and programs elsewhere, but it should stop importing major problems. It has no obligation to do so, but it does have an obligation to its own future generations to give them as united, peaceful, safe, and prosperous a country as it inherited from its ancestors. Current refugee policy fails that test miserably.
18:04 September 4, 2009 by Chesed
Wow, I guess all of you are not reading the same article. Why are the comments assuming the immigrants are black? It is possible to be from a country on the continent of Africa and not be black. Also, I'm pretty sure there where black people in Sweden before the recent boom in immigration and where are the immigrants from that are allegedly causing all these problems, Australia, Ireland, US, Iran, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Jamaica? Admit it, most if not all of these racist comments are from people that originated from the US hence the assumptions. Don't be fooled people. Anyone can say anything on these comments and misrepresent themselves. For example, I am an Italian man of Ethiopian descent living in Sweden or maybe I am a black woman of African descent or Am I a Caucasian Irish woman living in Sweden. No wait, I am a Jamaican of Chinese descent living in Sweden with my boyfriend. In that last comment I said I had a boyfriend, but am I male or female?
20:00 September 4, 2009 by Kooritze
@ Re-horakhty

you are still getting a few fish on your hook there!!!! Ha ha!


Apparently I am an inbred mutant albino! I am from a country which is a part of a bigger sovreign nation, speak a lauguage which is over 2000 years old...........and am apparently doomed to be bred out by a group of people with high melanin counts in their skin because our women dont like us anymore. Well all is not lost as I havent started breast feeding yet!

Better get on that Social Orientation Course Quick!

21:36 September 4, 2009 by Chesed
@Kooritze. Re-Horakty most likely is neither a person of color nor an immigrant. This person is just trying to get people upset. Anyone can be anything they want on here. The comments Re-Horakty are too ridculous.. its too much ..no one is that stupid. Don't fall for it. So what if ALL immigrants will be required to take classes. I don't see how that is a bad thing. Here is a valid question. Why does the title of the article use the term refugees while the content of the article uses the term immigrant? The terms have two different meanings and connotations.
22:57 September 4, 2009 by Kooritze
Under international convention Sweden is a country which takes in Refugees......ie. people that escape persecution in their contry of origin. Most refugees end up here not through a choice of their own. As such refugees are not required to be socially orientated. Immigrants on the other hand choose to come here and any course that helps them understand their new surroundings is positive.....many countires now do it. The problem I have is that much of social orientation dished out by the authorities tries to project an ideological image of what the values of the country is. In the case of sweden.....liberal, tolerant, democratic etc......and the reality is often contrary to the ideological image they want to protray. As an example, I would,nt say swedish society is particularly tolerant of immigrants.
01:42 September 5, 2009 by Kaethar
@Kooritze: Wrong. Very few are transferred here. Those that are are people who've been living in refugee camps for years (and the like). These people WANT to become Swedish, and don't doubt it. The people who come here illegally after war has broken out CHOOSE to come to Sweden and must therefore integrate!
08:21 September 5, 2009 by magic1964
Racism is everywhere !!! in the food, in the wine, in music, in your house, in your underweare !!! Swedish fish are racist, trees are racist !!!! the sky is racist too.......

Nice day in Sweden other than the subway system shuting down it been a great day.

Nonetheless, I am a African from Amerikkka. I have studied mutant inbred albinos as a profession and they never change.

No one can dispute my above comments.

I will not waste anymore world on these scientific facts.

By the way as a EX-PAT or immigrant I will not take and indoctrination course into Swedeish culture.

I am here to take and then LEAVE.
17:02 September 5, 2009 by Iraniboy
I really don't know why people are arguing here without knowing anything about the content of the courses. Of course if it was going to teach fascsim values of Mr Sarkozy, Gilbert who say "Wr should all believe in " X" and nothing else", then it was bad but according to my understanding of Swedish behviour, it's not going be so. If it's going to teach some sensitive Swedish things like queuing, being on time, lagom , how to greet, introducing laws...why not? If I'm going to live for one month or more in an area, I try to their learn what offends them to avoid misunderstandings. Isn't it natural?
19:54 September 5, 2009 by grantike
with the tempo of aruguement here.am not sure it really worth it.based on comments here there are lots of hate here.who cares about immigrant.even as a swedish what life do they have.apart from going to work or to school and friday and saturday drink too much.what else what else.

when i read and am not comfortable the best i do is to leave the page and not plan how to balnk his comments.thats absolute stupudity.
19:25 September 10, 2009 by marie gachelin
It's an excellent idea for host countries to educate their immigrant population about the host's country's traditions, rules and structures.

It is especially crucial, for democratic countries to familiarize their new-comers with the basic understanding of democratic values emphasizing respect "for all people's worth and young people's freedom to make their own life choices". Familiarizing Immigrants to their new home country is both educational and a preventive measure capable of preventing incidents of abuse, that are often related to certain stressors and the culture from which the immigrant chose to leave behind, while its equips the new-comer with information which can be used to navigate and enjoy the new environment. Orienting Immigrants to their new culture is an excellent idea. It offers continued stability to the host country and the groundwork that new-comers to settle.
