Video: Germany in Black and White - An interracial couple and prejudice
Via: Black Germans
In the short film Germany in Black and White (2011) a mixed couple is discussing what actually is German. The German man, who is full of prejudice, talks with his wife about people he feels are different than Germans.
Comment of a mixed-race person: “These types of interracial marriages/relationships are very harmful for biracial children.“
I forgot to mention the book Germany Black & White by Noah Sow.
She collected a list of stupid phrases and one of them is:
“I cannot be a racist, I have a Black wife / Black children.”
This is the stupidest “argument” of all. Reply: Oh, okay. I didn’t know that scr**wng removes centuries of cultural imprint!”
(And on the side: If sleeping with somebody or being related to someone were a guarantee for impartial contact without suppression, there wouldn’t be dismembered husbands in freezers, siblings fighting about their heritage, children who bitterly break off contact to their parents, or the impulse to burn the ex’s car.)
The short film (below) Schwarz Weiss Deutsch (English title: Germany in Black and White) is played by Fabian Püschel and Eve Wangui
