If you believe that racism only happens in the U.S., then you are mistaking.
Talib Kweli encountered an incident in Copenhagen when he was in Denmark for a performance.
Kweli posted on his Instagram what happened when he was attacked by “two bigots” and thanked NIKO for helping him through the difficult time while being away from home. NIKO is signed to Kweli’s Javotti Media.

Me and @nikohigh walking into Christiania Copenhagen last night. One of my favorite places in the world until last night. I've been hearing about Danish racism on the rise. I witnessed it firsthand. I was attacked by two bigots last night saying they "hate me" and they didn't even know who I was, they just didn't like the color of my skin. It wasn't an Internet attack, it was physical. I was hit and kicked. Thank you to @nikohigh for helping me get out of there. It goes to show you that racism and hate doesn't stop for ppl with money or "celebrity" whatever that means. They stop nothing tho. The show still went on, Copenhagen was a great crowd. Even tho I will never see Christiania the same, a place I once wrote about for a travel blog as utopian, I will always love my fans in Denmark. Your love last night, especially while I was away from family during holiday, only made me stronger.
