Wouldn't that be an indication on how they expected to be treated by your OH?

Looking at some of the comments on the article it appears that many of the stats listed are wrong / inverted . I was intrigued by the little racist red dot off China (Hong Kong) - obsessed with how much money their neighbours have maybe, worried about their race? Not nearly to the extent this article suggests.

I am not surprised that France appears very intolerant. France is a very conservative narrow-minded country as a whole unfortunately.

However I do wonder (as they point out in the article) whether it has more to do with the fact that the French people surveyed were more honest than some of their counterparts and didn't lie to appear PC...

Probably more of the case they tried to do the survey in English, so the French just brushed them away muttering "English pigs" and "les rosbifs". Fair deduction really

I saw that yesterday, even the author of the post said:

Correction: This post originally indicated that, according to the World Values Survey, 71.7 percent of Bangladeshis and 71.8 percent of Hong Kongers had said that they would not want a neighbor of a different race. In fact, those numbers appear to be substantially lower, 28.3 percent and 26.8 percent, respectively.

The short answer is, yes, someone did fat finger this big time. “Yes” and “No” got swapped in the second round of the survey, which means that 28.3% of Bangladeshis said they wouldn’t want neighbors of a different race – not 71.7%.


And who knows where else it has happened.

The author also says " some of the results are very recent and some are several years old". One of the linked reports that he used to add to the original data is dated 2005.

Bottom line..... Nothing in this report is guaranteed to be correct.
