    "Why Am I Not German?"

    In the vestibule of Germany's largest mosque, identity is complicated.

    Zehra Yilmaz says her German passport will get her into a voting booth on election day, but her Turkish name and Muslim head scarf kept her out of apartments she tried to rent. She has lived in Germany since she was 2, but her home has been in Turkish enclaves segregated from the rest of Germany by language, culture and a mutual belief that one day the foreigners would go home.

    "I'm not really Turkish, and I'm not really German," says Zehra Yilmaz, 46.

    (...)

    Children born in Germany since 2000 have an automatic right to citizenship, but they must decide between ages 18 and 23. If they choose to be German, they must give up citizenship in their parents' country.

    Ken Eis, 23, is caught in the middle. Born in Nigeria to a German mother and Nigerian father, his mother's citizenship gives him the option to be German. But the Kreuzberg resident, who has lived in Germany since he was 14, doesn't plan to stay much longer.

    "This is one of the few nations that still holds on to its nationalism," said Eis, who is unemployed. He plans to return to Nigeria to try to find a job. "I don't see a future for me in Germany."

    Yilmaz knows the feeling.

    "When I was 14, I was crying in my pillow at night, 'Why am I not German?' The Germans didn't accept me as a whole German girl. I didn't wear a head scarf at this time. I wore normal German clothes. But I have a foreign name. I am a foreigner for them," she said. In her frustration, she vowed to return to her family's roots.

    Then she visited Ankara, her family's ancestral city, and saw how different gender norms affected the country's women.

    "They are not like me," Yilmaz said. "In Turkey, I have no rights as a woman. I can't be active as a woman. ... My home is in Germany. It is in Duisburg."

    I'm finding it curious that a Nigerian half-caste would complain about not being accepted as a half-caste.

    I once, by circumstance, found myself speaking to a man from Ivory Coast who stated that he found it hard to travel into his ancestral country, because ever since his marriage to an Austrian woman, they refused to see him as one of theirs. I doubt the Nigerians see it much different.

    As such, that Ken Eis guy in the article is essentially complaining about something that would be even more commonplace where he's from. As such, he's pretty much screaming bloody murder basically out of self-gain, rather than bewilderment at the situation.

    Likewise, that Yilmaz girl would find that a German girl wouldn't find it much easier in Turkey to be accepted; chances are it'd be much harder. Actually, the way they treat their indigenous minorities, whether that be the Kurds or the Cypriots should be telling. She is too complaining about something that is all too commonplace where her ancestors hail from.

    The troublesome thing about these people lacking a sense of belonging, noticing that they're really not at home anywhere was none of their own design, it was the selfishness of their own parents: In one case procreation with a racial alien heaved an unbeknowing child into an identity crisis where it is accepted by neither of his parental societies. In the other case it was the hope for self-gain which severed an unbeknowing child from the formal ties to her ancestral society.

    But I don't see why we Germans should collectively feel any guilt about that. It's not my fault if some people don't feel like they belong anywhere because their parents made a selfish choice. That's their problem and that of their parents, but certainly not ours.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    "They are not like me," Yilmaz said. "In Turkey, I have no rights as a woman. I can't be active as a woman. ... My home is in Germany. It is in Duisburg."

    But wearing a head scarf to make it clear to everyone that you're not German, still 'demanding' to be accepted as such just because of a worthless piece of paper? Whining about selfchosen fate...

    It's good that they dress like they're not belonging here, these sort of hypocrisy reminds even the most brainwashed native that these people's religion and people themselves dont belong here.

    And indeed it is the problem of their parents and people when they dont feel home anywhere. Noone forced them to leave their home soil in the first place or to stay here; it's not that the guest workers became somewhat superfluous in the middle sixties at latest, no, and still instead of going back they imported the rest of their village? They made a selfish choice for some little money, and now when they realise the mess they've created for themselves and their children, they whine about too less effort to make them feel home here. As if they had a right to be here in the first place.

    But the most of them are arrogant assholes who actively create these ghettos some girls whine about. Whereever they come they try to build their little Ankaras, and the same kids that whine about discrimination are the ones who take care that these areas stay a ghetto - or even become a no-go area for Germans / the natives.

    The more worse it gets the more native people will wake up though. So just go on like that, whining, demanding and when you dont get your will scream discrimination, for that even the last brainwashed lamb will realise the hypocrisy and draw the only conclusion possible that you all dont belong here.

    LOL! Mixed children are known to have all kinds of identity problems are statistically proven to be more likely to be troubled teens, more into drugs and that kind of thing.

    That solves nothing in the absence of territorial control, which no one is willing to assert with all its consequences. Internationalism is a constitutional obligation and a departure from it goes hand in hand with an attack on the liberal-democratic order as such. Our liberators have certainly designed a nice death trap for us.

    No wait, "Eis, who is unemployed," is here to pay for our welfare system and the obvious solution to our problem is therefore US style libertarianism! We are saved.

    Lol...self chosen fate indeed, thats what you get for letting life take you where you shouldn't be. Not German by any stretch of the imagination but maybe the Sudan might take them or Kurdistan, those places are pretty mixed already.
