People who claim that Germans/Europeans are better than Americans are liers I’m a l But regarding Hello Cath, This is probably the only time I will respond here within this comment block, but wanted to quickly say that some folks come on here to twist the words around of other commentors and basically harass them. It’s kinda like that dirty type of fighting or bullying behavior of, kick ’em while their down and keep ’em down to make sure they won’t get back up, mentality. But with relation to the comment–the first thing I have to say, is I think it’s wrong to suggest one type of racism or oppression is “worse” than another–all forms are painful and harmful. Though, I might suggest that there are situations where it is not exactly accurate or even appropriate to suggest all forms are entirely “equal” either–take feminism in the U. Further, I made no comment on the treatment of Blacks in Germany or the treatment of people in color more generally in Germany. But notice here, it reduce the issue to the individual level–those occasional coo coo folks who are way way out there and ignores the larger problem. In short, racism in this society plays out in many many forms, and perhaps the most dangerous is the denial that it exists and/or that it is harmful for groups of color any longer, etc., which of course ties into the idea that everybody in the U. They are entirely different levels of analyses and if confused, people cannot communicate on the same page–unless one is sharing their experiences within level of analysis of which the discussion is speaking to and making that explicit. In case you don’t know, Doner is a traditional Turkish dish. People are constantly stigmatized and disrespected in Germany, as we now know even after their death.

They challenge the main posts often–it’s one thing to challenge them if you have a legitimate claim with substance. They refuse to do any readings or “listen” critically and reduce all forms of racism to the individual level, then turn around and blame the targets of racism for their social locations and circumstances within U. society, etc.–particularly those who have been historically most marginal and oppressed in U. I believe when people make such suggestions, they are deliberately trying to cause conflict between the oppressed, which serves to set up barriers that prevent the different groups from unifying as a collective against the larger social forces that are responsible for all forms of racism and oppression. My understanding is that at least at the individual levels, it’s rather hostile towards Blacks, much like here. But drawing out an example from the level of analysis (which I have done a couple of times) is different from taking an example and applying it to the whole group–I don’t do the latter. I agree with you: yes they are more aware of their own mistakes than Americans in an instutionalized sense.

You wouldn’t beleive how many commentators on here (including Seattle especially) say stuff like “The Germans have acknowledged their racism, but Americans are still in denial”. The same Germany that led millions of innocent civilians into the concentration camps and gas chambers?

I’ve been to Germany myself and though I’m white, I’ve heard racist remarks while I was there toward Jewish people.

I did not feel “demeaned” by the realization that some men esteemed my cleavage more than my talent; I felt damned lucky to have enough talent to exploit my cleavage. What if—perhaps moved by the testimony of the many women who have come forward in recent weeks—I were to realize that the ambient sexual culture I meekly accepted as “amusing” was in fact repulsive and loathsome?

We are on a frenzied extrajudicial warlock hunt that does not pause to parse the difference between rape and stupidity. He was an Oxford don and so had power over me, sensu strictu. But I also had power over him—power sufficient to cause a venerable don to make a perfect fool of himself at a Christmas party. They have hugged me, flirted with me, on occasion propositioned me.

The punishment for sexual harassment is so grave that clearly this crime—like any other serious crime—requires an unambiguous definition. For the most part, this male attention has amused me and given me reason to look forward to otherwise dreary days at work.

The difficulty of ascertaining whether one’s passions are reciprocated is the theme of 90 percent of human literature and every romantic comedy or pop song ever written.

Romance involves the most complex of human emotions, desire the most powerful of human drives. Every honest man will tell you that at times he has misread these signals, and so will every honest woman.
