Question by Spirit: Is Novosibirsk is Siberia safe for a black person?
Would it be safe for a black person to visit this city? Is there a lot of racism in russia? I ask because I have read of many stories in the papers and also how they are openly not tolerant to gay people etc . ..
Would people be racist towards a biracial couple, like black and white?
Hey I am not gay, I was just saying I have seen russians on tv publicly being nasty to peter thatchell or whatever his name is.
My husband is white and I’m black, he might work there but he is worried that I might not be able to visit. We live in London and it’s VERY diverse. We have travelled around europe (west) and had no problems as well as the US – well main areas NYC, Florida, Cali, Nevada, CT, Seattle etc but obviously I don’t expect russia to be the same. I just want to be certain that I will feel safe should we decide to walk down the streets together. Would people be nasty to us or attack us.

Y WOULD IT NOT BE SAFE? I think it would. If you visit the city and people stare at you dont be thinking their racist just dont do that. If russians look at you i think its because they are so not used to black people you know how theres barely any in russia right. It not like America were theres a lot you know wut i mean? they are really not used to it but most are not racists towards them.i do not think that they are racist towards blacks so dont worry. when i visited ukraine i went to black sea(thats jus a name of the sea) but anyways there was a african working at the beach. He was like one of a few n’ i thought it was pretty cool. people actually wanted to take pictures with him cause they barely see any and its soo unusual for them. dont be scared to visit russia jus act urself=)))
