Are the swiss racist?

I have both Swiss and Canadian citizenship, and have lived in both countries about equal amounts of time.
I don't know if it's just because it's tabu in Canada, but I have trouble with some of the comments made to me by my swiss acquaintances (and relatives).

I get really annoyed when I'm involved in conversations where people are put down based on their ethnicity. Does anyone have an opinion of this? My friends in canada never talked like this ...

When I was in Canada I was proud to be swiss, I thought their neutrality was something special. Now I think they're just neutral because they think they're superior to everyone else...
