I stumbled upon this clip while going through my usual search of documentaries. This is a short clip about teenage riots in Sweden. It depicts youths who are against the Swedish nationalists or "Nazis" as they call them.

What interested me about this clip is the lengths that the teenagers go to to stop racism within their country. I am glad that there are people who try to stand up for the rights of all human beings black, white, yellow, and so on. The video says that roughly 2000 youths rallied against the nationalists. This is an impressive figure considering that Eskilstuna is a small city with an approximate population of 64,679, double the population of SMC.

The nationalists on the other hand, although not surprising to me, still caused a sense of disappointment in me for humanity. As much I would like to believe that we as people have progressed far into a more "enlightened" society, there will always be ignorant people trying to cast out others simply because they are not of the same skin color. Racism still runs rampant across the globe.
