Test your attitudes

Question 1/6

You have a bad cold and need to go to the doctor’s. The first appointment offered to you is to a doctor with a name that doesn’t sound Finnish or even European. Do you ask for an appointment with a different doctor?

Question 2/6

You’re going to the sandpit with your child. You see another child playing in the sandpit whose mother is wearing a muslim headscarf. Do you encourage your child to play with the other child?

Question 3/6

You’re recruiting new staff and going through the applications. Do the applicants names and origin affect their chances to get to the next round of the recruitment process?

Question 4/6

You see a dark-skinned young man carrying a bicycle. Is your first thought that the bike is stolen?

Question 5/6

Your child brings home a new boyfriend or girlfriend. The person came to Finland as a refugee. Are you sincerely happy about your new family member?

Question 6/6

You want to start a new hobby. In one of the potential groups over half of the participants are immigrants. Does this affect your choice?

Good job, you identified your prejudices.

Who doesn’t have prejudices? But what if your were excluded and rejected  just because of your skin colour or religion? Would you want others to change their behaviour? Equality begins with thoughts and everyday actions. The Finnish Refugee Council works for societies where everyone can feel accepted. Be part of the solution, help us defuse prejudices and racism.
