Dude, I'm sorry but you are absolutely clueless :roll: :roll: :roll:

edit: i just watched the video and i almost had to laugh. is THAT what scares you? a couple Turkish flags? oh no, we have these SUPER SCARY enclaves in the US too... where not only they speak another language, but they even design their buildings like their native country. they don't even sell American food! oh yeah, those EVIL Chinatowns... ooo, very scary. This video shows such a complete ignorance about modern Germany, it's almost laughable... or at least it would be, if people didn't take it seriously.

I would agree if you were talking about France but I wouldn't feel uneasy travelling to Germany.

tell me this are you happy with that... Turks making that and the recent mass meetings in Koeln?
I am not talking about the refugees (cause many of them will go back) I am talking about the supposed integrated lot who have been in the country for ages.
You lived there cause you have relatives if I am not mistaken...
I went there as a tourist.

I may have exaggerated... but things are not looking very nice there...
By time Turks will be making demands... Erdogan is giving them a certain believe that they can have what they want... all over the world...

I lived in Munich for two years, and my wife and her entire family are from Bavaria (native Bavarians). I take this type of thing VERY personally, for many reasons:

1. Due to my family and personal connections, I feel very passionate about Germany

2. Germany is constantly disrespected and misrepresented in the USA - mostly about WW2 things (my wife has been called a "nazi" more than once here in USA), but also increasingly about the refugee situation.

3. There are issues with integrating so-called "3rd generation" Turkish-Germans, but this is an issue only in some cases. I can (loosely) compare it to African-Americans in the US who live in urban ghettos, but the truth is there are not neighborhoods as "separate" as that in Germany. However, when a video like this is made insinuating that Turks are "taking over" Germany, that's really just a lie. It's blatantly untrue.

4. Maybe coming from the US, where there are actual dangerous neighborhoods, gives me a different perspective on Germany. I've never been to a place or neighborhood I felt unsafe there, even if there were a lot of immigrants.

5. My biggest problem is that this person (I presume Canadian) is trying to manipulate a situation in Germany to make her own case against Muslim immigrants. It's misrepresentation of the German culture.

I'm not saying there are issues with integrating some turkish-germans, but this video makes it sound like they are taking over, which not only is wrong, but it also cheapens whatever real issues there are.
