The party wants large cuts to be made to the number of immigrants entering Sweden but is accused by opponents of being xenophobic and anti-Muslim.

But there are plenty of racists out there.
"Racism is discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity." (Wikipedia, Racism)
Johan Berggren is a talented musician who could easily support musicians of color in the world music genre.
Instead, he plays at Swedish folk music events frequented by an all-white cadre of musicians.

And certainly racists can be racists.
The problem with Berggren is that he bases his behavior off an incorrect understanding of the Bible.
