No…not really. 也许一点点. 有殖民主义的历史. The Portuguese were one of the biggest slave traders in the world (move over you Dutch and British slave traders). But is Portugal racist now? I would say…a touch, 但它不是像美国或意大利等国不同. 大多数人在葡萄牙是不是种族主义者, 老年人能坚持到定型, 但关于葡萄牙的最好的事情是，即使这并非恶意. 这是罕见碰到有人谁是真正的种族主义者. 让我们来看看为什么.
Is Portugal Racist and How Does it Compare to Other Countries?
Here is a very non-scientific chart I put together on the racism I have felt in various countries that I have traveled to:
Bing also has a cool feature to see a heat map for racism in different countries:
Here are the minorities on TV:
Notice a trend? The countries that are most racist have almost no minorities on their screens. 这就像在中国有没有差异, 在俄国, 哥伦比亚, 和巴西.
But we have outliers like the USA (that’s where I am from). 有很多在电视上少数, but it is quite a racist place (especially in the middle of the country).
葡萄牙是完全不同的. I had a friend here tell me that “God created black people, 上帝创造了人白, and the Portuguese created mulattos”. This is where we’ll start to set the scene.
最近几年, 葡萄牙已受到越来越多的移民. 这包括来自非洲的前葡萄牙殖民地的不断涌入，包括佛得角和安哥拉. 您也将遇到来自莫桑比克人, 和葡萄牙印度果阿一样。
In the 90’s there was a flow of migrants from Eastern Europe: Russia, 保加利亚, 罗马尼亚, 和Moldovia.
As of the 2000’s the main influx has been from Brazil and China (the later due to the Golden Visa program).
以往 5 年份, the immigration is coming in from France (the French are currently the number one group purchasing real estate in Portugal), 英国, 德国与美国的一些外籍人士.
即使拥有如此移民, 94% 人口是葡萄牙诞生。
年轻的葡萄牙是大家相当开放, 尤其是在像里斯本较大的城市, 波尔图, 和科英布拉.
The older community still holds stereotypes about outsider communities such as blacks or ciganos (gypsies). 他们将举行假设犯罪, 贫困和教育程度低是这些人口组内更高.
For my own experience I haven’t had anything close to the racism you would see in US or China. Yes I have had a security guard in El Corte Ingles go out of his way to follow me through the store. But after he saw me a few times he would just say “ola” and nod. Yes I have been mistaken for someone else because of the color of my skin (they honestly thought I was someone else who really didn’t look anything like me except he was brown skinned).
