    One should try my history for a change. When I visited the french grandparents of my girlfriend we went on a walk and at some point we came on a little hill from which you could look over the fields in Northern France. You could see approximately twenty war graveyards with over twothousand people in each of them. When we later sat at the dinner table and my girlfriends grandfather asked if the food was good, I felt really weird, like hoping someone would disintegrate me from reality in an instant

    This. I´m tired of people whining about how hard it is to be (male) WASPs and how evil PC/liberals/feminists/ethnic minorities/the rest of the world/commies conspire against them. Right now in Germany there is a lot of talk about how Germans/men/christians are discriminated against by immigrants/women/atheists. Seriously?

    You know, this makes me wonder about historical reparation. I mean, I'm descended from criminals, do I have to pay for their crimes?

    I love every bit of our history as a nation. The pretty parts and the ugly parts.

    And my personal history as a part of a family from the South.

    To ask me to do any other wise would be asking me to (at some level) commit mutiny against that which makes me who I am, or alternatively, that which makes my country what it is.

    Ahem, no, I´m white in a white country and have clearly noticed how I have been prefered to others not only in my own country but also abroad. I´ll never forget how the Spanish police treated me compared to my Brazilian neighbors. I have never been disvriminated against in my whole life (exept maybe occasionally for being a woman, but that´s a whole diffrerent story) which is exactly the point I was trying to make!

    The Federal President addressed in a speech the islamic religion to be part of Germany now and that was new to some people. In Germany do live alot of people from Turkey and many political refugees, who are living in a somewhat parallel world now to society really long but they have all the freedoms they need for their religion. We even have built mosque and burqas aint forbidden aswell. So there is a lot of tolerance, problem is noone really comes freely to Germany, many came due to financial motivations or political problems. Since that is so they aint really happy here. Next problem is, many foreigners often live in poor families and only receive the worst school education. Basically tho this is a general problem of education, because we have a youth at the moment that is totally underqualified cause our school system sucks and needs reformation.

    The opposing socialist parties but used the discussion now for political mud-wrestling and made a big discussion out of it. What basically sucks for foreign people is bureaucracy ( takes em forever to get the german nationality ) and the fact that they coming from poor families dont always have a chance to get out of a bad loop, tho this is a general problem for poor families. Despite that there are many people well integrated tho and I think german society can really accept them. Some islamic people have the tendency to think everyone hates them and disrespects them, that's a problem I really cant fix and they maybe have to learn, because I do neither hate nor disrespect them. To me the religion is very unknown and I am rather intrested in learning more about it.

    I personally am from Westphalia, what is next to Berlin the area with the highest foreign people quantity in Germany. In my youth I had like 3 germnan friends, the rest came from different countries and I never bothered about nationalities. Up until my age now I am befriended with people who have another religion than me but are perfectly integrated into society and am given all freedom they want. The Western, Northern and Eastern part of Germany is generally atheist, it's the southern part that is more conservative and hides behind some weird christian traditions who are equal to thoughts from 1945. They are troublemakers in that regards and have a quantity of foreign people of like 0.0001 % in their vicinity.

    I personally havent tho really understood why the discussion if islam should be a religion in Germany now was cooking. Seems like the older Germans are slowly realizing, what their offspring already knew, namely globalization is coming and we have islam in Germany since 1970 by now.

    This sounds like the typical white man's copout. It's like you didn't even watch the video.

    This begs the question. Once Native Americans and Gypsies have their own respective nations, then where will you live?
