I've read many articles about the plight of Muslims in Europe,mostly France in particular and they really do go through a lot as a result of growing xenophobic/islamophobic sentiment in society which has given rise to extreme right parties that are gaining popularity .
In my personal experience,I experienced more incidents of racism on vacation in Europe than I did living in Florida for 2 years to be honest...
It does make sense to me though since they never really experienced a civil rights type movement to push for societal changes in attitudes
My wealthy uncle went back to Italy a couple of years ago to attend a wedding & stayed at the 4 Seasons in Florence... As he was checking in, the concierge had the nerve to mention the hotel doesn't provide Chinese or Asian cuisine. My cousin, who was with him was like WTF this ************ just say to us?!?!
The lack of damns given by that concierge .What did your Uncle say? How are you gonna start disrespecting a hotel guest right in front of him as he's checking in? I bet he probably didn't even think he was being racist.
