White is not a Colour
n the days following the 22nd of July 2011 terrorist attack by right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik, the streets of Norway were filled with colourful roses and speeches of love conquering extremism, fear and xenophobia. The people’s reaction to Europe’s largest terrorist attack was admired on television screens all over the world. During those days in 2011, it would have been hard to imagine that in the years to follow, xenophobia and anti-multiculturalism in Norway would flourish to the extent that racist attitudes would soon become mainstream and acceptable, even within the government. Society has slowly and almost unnoticed been infiltrated by right-extremist philosophy and we are losing our most important values like tolerance, hope, justice and empathy.
