    English has about 20% loan words from old Norse.

    That’s Stefan Sauk an actor who just like Peter Stormare often gets typecast as an Eastern European villain in Hollywood. He’s from the same province as I.

    I thought Scandinavian culture was listening to Children of Bodom or ABBA while eating a nice can of Surströming inside your place and dreaming of affordable beer?

    Extremely egalitarian, extremely liberal. Which is why mass immigration from the Middle East and North Africa is tearing Sweden apart.

    Remembering: I have also heard it from the other perspective. The singer of one of my favourite bands 'Satanic Surfers' from Swesen looks like a guy from, uhm, Spain or Bulgaria or whatever and they have a song that people always look him up and down like a potential criminal. Must really be a situation ...

    p.s. the song sucks but the band is great :D

    That’s one of the issues with immigration to most European countries. You can’t really become Swedish. It’s not like the new world. This is an old acquaintance of mine.

    Funny thing is, people would come up to him and ask for stuff and he’d redirect them to me and I apparently don’t look like a drug dealer.

    Yes, that's true. The Germans are really stiff, as well. Immigration of course here in a very hot topic, because of the history..we are therefore also quite lenient in many ways, too lenient in my opinion, but I'll leave it at that.
    My parents also immigrated, they fled from the Iron Curtain. But my father went to Uni with very little german at first, but he tape-recorded the classes and my mother would later translate it at home. Some people and groups integrate better than others, especially to be seen after 2 or 3 generations.
    The new guys who come who are fleeing from wars/dictatorship in Africa are all very friendly and smart, regardless of religion and such bullshit, and there is a lot of support from the german society on an individual level. But there are so many implicit rules and behaviors of what is considered impolite or when you are friends etc. that foreigners also have a hard time to 'become German', like you wrote 'can't really become Swedish', I imagine the same thing.

    Hell, when I was growing up anyone with black hair got called “svartskalle” literally translates to black head which is the Swedish equivalent of the n word.

    The owner of the restaurant my gf works at is from Denmark. Lovely family. He’s into motorcycles too, so I always go over to the bar and talk bikes with him and get my food for free lol.

    That's disgusting to be pushing that agenda.
    You dont exist. Meanwhile a Congolese child rapist is getting 20 month sentences and not being deported after release. Sweden is the rape capital of the west. Most of the countries with higher rape rates are the same third world countries they are importing people from
