No, I’m not a racist even though I tell you to stop grabbing my breasts
Norway: Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug has previously stated that refugees who come to Norway have a major responsibility for their own integration.
Moreover, she questioned whether training programs at reception centers are good enough when it comes to introduction to Norwegian values.
When I the other day was called a racist by an applicant on the bus, so I asked myself the same question.
It makes me happy when refugees make an effort
I sat on a five-hour bus ride from Oslo to Kristiansand when this guy in his 20s a few seats behind asked if he could sit next to me. “We have learned that in order to become better acquainted with the Norwegians, we have to consult,” he said.
Kudos to him that he accepts the challenge and make an effort to become integrated, I thought.
The conversation turned quickly
He told about her background from Iraq and the new life in Norway. He had only been here a few months and talked about how well Norwegians had welcomed him. We actually had a nice conversation, until: “I have learned that many Norwegian girls have Restylane and stuff in their lips, are you?”
Without that I even had time to respond, he leaned over me, grabbed me on the breasts and pressed his face against mine. I pushed him away and gave the message that he could just forget, and then came the comment: “Oh my God, are you a racist?”
