    It does not necessarily have to have anything to do with that sort of intentional motives on behalf of the author. The surroundings and prevailing circumstances are factors that have their say in everything. Keeping healthy suspicion up is not suggesting. To tell as a foreigner to a native that she does not see around her is suggesting.



    Look familiar?

    Yes, the sample consisted of Finnish citizens who self-identified as ethnic Swedes regardless of native language.

    Hmmm. Isn't it pretty bad policy to classify people according to how they themselves identify? I mean, I'm sure you've heard of the so-called Pan-Aryans who identify as "White", but would not look out of place in a Taleban rally?

    The fact is that there is no significant genetic difference between Finns and "Swedish Finns" (the correct term is "Swedish-speaking Finns, btw).
