...I give you a response I made in the thread on Cory Bookers deeply offensive comment which shocked - shocked - me.*
It just seems like a weird comment when I live in a city (Oslo) which has a 25 % immigrant population, when immigration is the #1 wedge issue in Norwegian politics and when you look at the charts for number of immigrants as a percentage of population:
US: 12 %
Norway: 7.5 %.
South Korea: 1.1 %
Which means Norway has a per capita immigrant population the ballpark of such homogenous cultures as the UK (9%) and Russia (8.5%). We are an ethnically diverse nation, and one in every 13 people you meet here will not have been born here.
The big question is, though: do we celebrate our racial deliciousness? To that, I’d have to say that some of us do, some of us (e.g. 1/3rd of the country who vote Progress Party) don’t.
* I'm kidding, obviously - but I still felt it needed a response.
