Dear Left Wing/ Conservative party and Danish People's party. I would dearly like to know, why I should vote for you, as Left Wing and the Conservative party are not good at fighting racism in Denmark. As with many Danes, there are so many things Left Wing have to learn about integration. Seen with Danish eyes, integration is about assimilation, and that is simply wrong. The Danish people have preconceived judgements against foreigners, as there are in many Nordic countries. Many Danish corpoations will not hire a foreigner, because they are ignorant and scared. My parents have been diplomats in South Africa, but here my father cannot get a job, even being an academic, because he is black and a foreigner. My father was schooled in France, which has the world's 5th largest economy. It is a fact I will face, it is Denmarks reality. The Danish and Nordic people living abroad must also integrate into the places where they reside. They must also respect the culture in the place where they reside. Here, in Kolding County, there are many unemployed foreigners, but they cannot get a job because of their race, their cultures and so on. I think that is stupid. What can be done for Kolding? There is a sort of dualism between Danes and foreigners. Nordic peoples have very closed cultures, and it can be difficult to open up to foreigners. That dualism will stop. I'm not saying this in a negative way, it is simply a fact, which society will have to face. Of course, there should be freedom of speech, but freedom of speech is not about ridiculing other humans because of their race or anything else. I will now ask you again; what can I do for Kolding County? What can I offer the county?
