Seriously? Where have you been living? Under a rock? Germans, Japanese, Irish, Chinese, Hispanics, Africans, Polish...that just in the USA. All over the world dominant groups are constantly persecuting and trying to wipe out lesser ethnic groups.
Germans were discriminated against during the era of immigration. People who called themselves the natives persecuted Irish, German, Chinese... Pretty much anyone who wasn't born in the US. If you're looking for a group that haven't been discriminated against, look at the Anglo-Saxon. The Britons haven't faced much racism over the years.
prejudice is universal. to start, especially after the war, Germans were the object of racism with the belief that all Germans were Nazis. just as all races have a stereotype that are associated with them today. then you have the cultural and religious prejudices. as well as those related around age and sex. - no group is exempt from any type of prejudice or racism. - until humans use intelligence, rather than fear to form decisions, racism and prejudice will never disappear.
My grandmother emigrated from Germany as a child. After grown, married and a mother of three WWII broke out. While she had one son held in stalag 17 and another fighting in the pacific theater, she was hounded, had her property defaced, had her daughter attacked, etc As long as there are narrow minded people who want to feel superior, there will be bigotry.
No they were all thought of as nazis witch is completely not true the real nazis were the SS and other special forces and the regular militairy was most of the time just German men that diddent have a say
Every single ethnicity on this planet has been a slave to another ethnicity at some point in time. Racism is universal and every ethnicity had/has experienced it.
Don't see any info in your profile. By asking this Q, you are implying that you are ignorant to the world and its history......OR.......you are trying to start a hate debate. Good luck to you if this is your mentality. You will not get very far in life.
Ethnic prejudice is as old as time itself. Even the bible mentions it, when the Hebrews were to wipe out their cousins the Canaanites every man woman and child. Most recently the war in the Balkan states where the ruling ethnicity was set on wiping out the other. The Jews have been a target of hatred for centuries thanks to the Church's attitude towards them, and blaming them for the death of Jesus, yet believing the death of Jesus as something that "had" to happen to fulfill prophecy. Today I think a lot of Muslims are looked down upon because of the terrorist attacks worldwide, and yet most of them have nothing to do with it. So no the Germans are not the only ones to use prejudice or are the victims of it.
"German" is a nationality, not a race. No nationality is a race. Race supremacism originated in Asia with the Hindu caste system; in Europe, with the Anglos and Saxons which were both Teutonic tribes, which intermingled.
Saxon race supremacy is what imposed itself on some but not all Germans. It's worthwhile to point out that there was no such thing as Germany until recently in historical timeline terms. Like Italy, it was a collection of independent tribes until it consolidated into Germany.
No! Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and sometimes white people too. Everyone faces racism sometime in their life. And I'm sure Germans do too! You know with all that nazi stuff that went on back then? Some people might still be mad about it......
