NEW YORK (February, 2013) — When you live in another country you can become the target of racism. It can be personal, or it can come from a government.
It is important that you don’t dismiss the threat you are under. Psychological warfare is dangerous and it can create a climate of hate that leads to racist attacks like the attack on Romanians that happened after the UK leaked a negative ad campaign designed to discourage Romanians from living there.
Where Can I Get Help?
When you are abroad and a government targets you or your country, it is important to ensure your personal safety. Contact your embassy for information about what you should do and whether the country is still safe for you.
