Denmark was an homogeneous country with few language conflicts until 1960: everyone spoke Danish, practically everyone was a member of the same Danish Church, and there were no ethnic tensions, because we were all Danish. This unique situation may help explain why Danes now find great difficulty in coping with immigrants and refugees. There is a tendency to blame foreigners for all the evils and poor social conditions perceived in Danish society, and the Danes seem to have a problem in understanding and accepting that immigration is a part of modern society and that this development is unlikely to stop in the foreseeable future
