Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

This is Monika Kichau, one of two owners of a coffee shop in Umeå, Sweden. [View all]



On the 14th of March, after a long day of work and dressed in a grey hoodie, she was locking up her business when a woman approached her and asked her what she was doing, and told her that she’d phoned the police. Minutes later the police arrived and accused her of trying to break into the coffee shop, and despite the fact that she could prove that she owned the place, that she knew everything worth knowing about it in terms of employee records and the like, the police officers still demanded to see her ID, a demand reminiscent of those made by police officers at the tram stations in Stockholm who are dead set on tracking down and catching illegal immigrants by targeting people who don’t look what’s considered “ethnically Swedish”.

Welcome to Sweden. We don’t have a problem with racism, or so the news.
