Racism in Austria

<p>I've been planning for my masters at the Vienna University of Technology. I can speak German. I am from the Philippines. I have colored skin. So, my question is, how is the racial situation in Austria? Are cases of racist violence prevalent? Thank you.</p>

<p>My husband is originally from Vienna. He passed on your question to friends still living there. The response was that many people from the Philippines live in Vienna and work, for example, as nurses and hospital staff. So there is acceptance of them in general. You might hear the occasional racist remark, but violence is rare.</p>
