i start a blog about fighting racism and try to find replies to some critical questions.
One is the belief of racist, that refugees are lazy and don't invest time in cleaning and straighten the place they live.
As an example of this thesis the first reception facilities "Erstaufnahmezentrum" are visualized. There are some fotos, but much more reports of people that work there. Normally they say that the condition is more like a chaos, unhygienic and dirty.
The second thing workers say, that people there have a lot of time, are bored but never come to the idea to do something for the public facility. So the question is, why do they wait for cleaning personell everyday and don't clean themself? Is this ignorance against the tax payer?
I try to fight these arguments, but i don't have access to these institutions for security reasons. Is it possible for a refugee to explain this phenomena? The only argument i have is a statistical one: There is a foto in the internet of GDR refugees in Hungary embassy with DRK tents that look totaly chaotic. So, the "clean" Germans can be denunciated as not so "clean" in at least one equal situation. But anyway, i have no idea why it is the way it is. Best would be of course, if this could be chand. And this argument is weak, since a lot of people are frustrated that their tax money is paid for cleaning personell for refugees although the people have a lot of time.
I cannot find good examples and reference to for these kind of facebook, pub and blog discussions. Can somebody with personal experience can help me with good, references arguments? It would be best if they are public testable.
There are more questions like this ... but i split them up in different blogs.
