I guess they couldn’t care less about the sensibilities of non-Muslims.

‘Racist’ bird names banned by Sweden

Four different bird species which include the word “neger” (“negro”) have been renamed using “svart” (“black”) instead.
Other feathered creatures known as “swifts” in English will no longer be called “kaffer” in Swedish. This word, which can also be spelt “caffer” and “kaffir” is a racist term that has been used by white South Africans towards black South Africans.
So white-rumped swifts will now be known as “vitgumpseglare” in Swedish.
