Re: Do the swiss dislike immigrants

Switzerland without immigrants is unthinkable. They keep the country running.

Be yourself! You dont have to integrate and you don't have to be one of " them"

Wow, this is harsh or borderline trolling.

From my side, you should definitely come if you want too and you won't regret it, unless you are a very social person and like to make friends, go out, have fun, party .... in that case, don't ever set a foot here, not even 100 miles around this country, ever! https://youtu.be/ic8af1YWRRI?t=90
Oh dear, the irony

You make it sound like there is a secretive systematic and institutionalized racism to keep a leash on all immigrants.

Even though I must admit I don't like here, not for the reason your mentioned but on for the desolate social life. Other than that, I think anyone can make it here. To say he will be promoted in his home country, but not here isn't correct.

I came here 5 years ago from East Africa, not even having finished high school and barely knowing anything about programming and today I am working for at the EPFL Innovation Park as fullstack web developer. If I can make it this far, anyone can.

OP - This thread will sum up your experience when you arrive in Switzerland. Some people will just show you their negative side without any reason, and the rest will treat you as you preset yourself.

From my point of view, immigrants will always be welcome, where ever they may go, in all countries and all societies and all races.... Until it is perceived that there are too many of them, whether or not it corresponds to the truth is Irrelevant, but at some point the welcome will turn into xenophobia and then sparks fly. Add a socialist government into the mix and you get what we are now seeing in the political landscape.

We're not really in danger to experiment that in CH.
