So I have this one course at uni, multiculturalism, which is by the way the one course that keeps me going.
We got a text talking about giving animals citizenship.. and that text explicitly compared animals to minorities and foreigners.. Now let me tell you, this course is btw 90% white and german, only one of these people found it wrong to make such a comparison! ONLY ONE!
(Besides me, the only african girl and two other germans with a background of migration)
Tadaaa basic example of white privilege and ignorance 🤷🏾♀️
This speaks on so many levels!
- the "new" generation is not any better when it comes to multiculturalism - people who study political science don't equal empathy (main reason why most politicians suck)
- people who specialise in something are sometimes just followers and not really thinkers ... and so much more
A simple example of how it feels to be a poc/black at a uni in Germany.
