Concept of race from the basic law emphasize? Now ensues a heated debate

In the Union meets the Green-demand for deletion of the term "race" from the basic law with skepticism and rejection. Such a deletion would be "more symbolic politics, and brings us further in the matter, no step," said the domestic policy spokesman of the Union group, Mathias Middelberg, of the "Frankfurt General Sunday newspaper".

The Chairman of the Committee on internal Affairs, Andrea Lindholz, said they think the claim is "a rather helpless phoney debate". A deletion of the term would also make it difficult to case law, she argued. "Without a proper legal term that is enshrined in international law, could racism legally be attack difficult."

"There are no "races". There are people."

the Union group Vice-Thorsten Frei said the newspaper, the fight against racism is not going to bring "the linguistic Review" of the basic law, "progress". An update was not necessary. The Prime Minister of Hesse Volker Bouffier argued, to consider an Amendment of the basic law "very carefully". Important to have a full debate in society, as we oppose the racism decided to be"". The Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther, emphasized that he was committed rather than to take care of "such a theory of stuff".

Green-chief Robert Habeck, and the green Vice-President of the Schleswig-Holstein Landtag, Aminata Touré, had declared the justification of their claim in the "daily newspaper": "It is time that we unlearn racism." The term manifest is a division of people into categories, the claim and the spirit of the basic law is contradicted. "There are no "races". There are people."

"I'm me"

Specifically, article three, paragraph three, of the basic law. It says: "no one shall because of sex, parentage, race, language, homeland and origin, his faith, his religious or political opinions-disadvantaged or preferred. No one should be disadvantaged because of his disability."

the FDP, the Left and the SPD had shown themselves open to the claim of the Green party, the German interior Minister, Horst Seehofer signalled willingness to talk: "I'm me". More important is the mitigation of racism in practice is for him but. Germany - Your chances

FDP attacked the Union

The FDP Deputy in the Bundestag, Stephan Thomae, realized, meanwhile, the lack of empathy in some of the Union leaders. "I find the argument that it is a matter of pure symbol politics very revealing," said Thomae, the German press Agency on Sunday. The Union notes the sensitivity for the theme are missing. The basic law only a legal text, but also a "document of the values of our society, don't be."

Next, the Expression of SPD-Head of Saskia esque about "latent racism" in the police - and especially the reactions is discussed on it. You think it is "blatant that it is so difficult to lead a critical discussion about racism in the police," said the Green politician Touré, the "Tagesspiegel on Sunday". If the interior Ministers of the countries have not led this debate to be self-critical, "do not ignore only the experiences of many people with a history of Migration, but also of the society do not Like". The black SPD member of the German Bundestag, Karamba Diaby from Halle noted, the abuses there are in the police, would have to be named.

esque had need to, for their Statements in the past few days a lot of criticism in part from our own ranks, plugging. When you visit a police Academy in lower Saxony said on Thursday that you want to ask the police not to come under General suspicion I have. When it comes to racism and the police, the Problem is not in the structure but in individual cases.
