Demonstrations against racism were held this weekend in the United States, but also in Germany. Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) warned Germans in an interview against looking only to the United States. In Germany, too, “black people are discriminated against, the kippa was torn from Jews,” he said. It is important to “first sweep on your own doorstep”, Maas said. According to figures from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, there are over 30,000 right-wing extremists in Germany.
