Ireland among most racist EU nations
Prof. Michael O'Flaherty, the director of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency, has told Pat Kenny that a four year study has found that the Ireland is among the most racist countries in Europe along with Austria, Finland and Luxembourg. O'Flaherty told Kenny that this was the most ambitious study ever conducted about racism towards migrants carried out across the EU.
The particular report from the study which was discussed on Newstalk today focused on sub-Saharan Africans, 425 of whom were questioned in Ireland. According to the study one in eight Africans in Europe said they face discrimination on account of their skin colour but the figure in Ireland was one in three. Similarly, O'Flaherty said a third of Africans said they experienced discrimination in the work place. However, the figures were all based on the opinion of the Africans and they were not required to present any evidence to corroborate the claims.
One caller called Declan texted in to say that while he worked in a community where there had been great integration, he had noticed that when he criticised the bad behaviour of migrants, the first thing they did was label him a racist.
According to Dr Ebun Joseph the unemployment rate for Africans in Ireland is between 43% and 63%.
Despite their high unemployment rate, The Irish Independent reported in 2013 that Nigerians living in Ireland are sending nearly half-a-billion euro back home each year. That was an average of more than €26,000 for each of the 17,642 Nigerian nationals in Ireland, including children.
