Hidden racists have become more vocal in Finland and racism has turned more public, says Refugee Woman of the Year Saido Mohamed, Finnish public broadcaster YLE reported.
"It's really confusing, the way multiculturalism has advanced in society, but at the same time racism is more widespread," Mohamed says.
She believes that the attitudes of the True Finns Party and media writings have contributed to the rise of racism.
"Those racists who were hidden feel that now they're allowed to say what they want. For their part, the media have written some harsh things," Mohamed noted.
