Denmark to Begin Keeping Records of Islamic Crime

Hey, guys!

I found someone doing something good in some white country today!

The Local:

Denmark’s government is to separately classify people from or with heritage in primarily Muslim countries and regions in official statistics related to topics such as crime and employment.

Immigration and integration minister Mattias Tesfaye has signalled his support for the statistical differentiation of people in Denmark with Middle Eastern and North African heritage.

Categorising people according to region is beneficial in understanding patterns of crime and employment in people in Denmark with foreign heritage (indvandrere og efterkommere), the minister said in an interview with newspaper Berlingske.

“We need more honest numbers and I think it will benefit and qualify the integration debate if we get these figures out in the open, because fundamentally, they show that we in Denmark don’t really have problems with people from Latin America and the Far East. We have problems with people from the Middle East and North Africa,” Tesfaye said to the newspaper.

Under the current system, Denmark differentiates between ‘Western’ and ‘non-Western’ heritage in official statistics on immigrants and their children.

All EU countries, along with Andorra, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, New Zealand, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and the Vatican are considered ‘Western’. Everywhere else is ‘non-Western’.

Honest numbers – I’ve been calling for honest numbers for years!

I should make it a policy to find one good thing happening in one white country every day.

Actually, I tried to make that a policy before, and it was too hard so I gave up.

But I should try it again.
