With our commonwealth more segmented than ever in regards to issues of racism, xenophobia, and everything in between, it’s important to note that diversity is never, ever the enemy.
And while America may be struggling to find a common ground on these issues, it’s important( and candidly, kind of depressing) to know that we’re not alone. In recent years, Germany has had to deal with its fair share of issues following a 2015 decision to allow more than thousands and thousands of asylum seekers entry into the country. At the heart of the problem is the idea that these immigrants have “failed to assimilate.” Worse still is that countless mistakenly associate refugees and migrants to asylum with terrorism.
And one German grocery store has impelled their stance on diversification known. What they did is important and something we all need to see.
