This must be stopped and your help is needed.

By Fjordman

In his 2008 book Et Delt Folk ("A Nation Divided”), The Danish historian and writer Morten Uhrskov Jensen carefully went through publicly available sources.

This divide is viewed by those from the upper segments of society as caused mainly by racism, prejudice, ignorance and xenophobia.
