Hmmm ... interesting that it's in German. Have you been having trouble on the subject of blacks in Finland?

Or in Swedish more likely. Unfortunately there are chauvinists in our society =(

I will follow the situation to find out how soon that "graffiti" (garbage) becomes cleaned away.

I´m wondering about the cleanness of this location... Here (in my small, local community) it wouldn´t be cleaned away... it would be overwritten, crossed, or being used to changed it to a phrase with opposite meaning...
There is so much space left on top and below the "neger" - letters, it should be easy to change the meaning by supply some more letters... :p

There is a very heavy traffic on both sides of those pillars. So, that is maybe the reason why there are no more graffiti than this. And maybe it was not long since it was painted, and therefore no one had reacted in any way yet. But do remember this is Finland, where peeps still are rather obedient citizens =P

I remember Allan told us about similar troubles in Denmark.

Here's some more information on situation in Finland: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somali_community_in_Finland

Earlier we have had very few immigrants from Africa, and then it suddenly changed. And of course some people see this situation as a thread, not as a possibility.
