Bericht des EU Europarats zu Rassismus in Deutschland


Pointer: Der Europarat bzw. die „Kommission gegen Rassismus und Intoleranz“ des Europarats (ECRI) hat heute ihren Deutschlandbericht zum Umgang Deutschlands mit Minderheiten und Ausländern veröffentlicht. Hauptschwächen sehen die unabhängigen Experten im deutschen Strafrecht und im Justizwesen.  Der Bericht kann auf der Webseite der ECRI heruntergeladen (Englisch, pdf) werden.

Schwarze Menschen (Black Community), werden neben Juden, Muslimen, Türken, Sinti / Roma und Migranten, Asylanten, Flüchtlingen als besonders gefährdete Gruppe geführt. Die Grösse der Black Community in Deutschland wird auf 200.000-300.000 Menschen geschätzt und deren Lage in einem eigenen Kapitel wie folgt beschrieben:

  • Brutale und gewalttätige Angriffe gegen Schwarze
  • „NO GO Areas“ in einigen Bundesländern
  • Bürger 2. Wahl bei der Behandlung durch die Polizei
  • Fehlende Visibility von Schwarzen Menschen in der Zivilgesellschaft
  • Diskriminierung im Arbeitsleben / Wenige schwarze Role Models im Berufsleben (Lehrer, Bankangestellte, Beamte)
  • Diskriminierung durch das Auswahlsystem im Bildungswesen
  • Mangel an Diversity in Medien, Film, Werbungen
  • Reproduktion von rassistischen Stereotypen in den Medien
  • Fehlendes Forschungsmaterial zu Situation der Black Community in Deutschland

Als Quellen des Berichts werden nichtgenannte NGOs angegeben, wer genau aus der Black Community als Berater, Experte an dieser ECRI Studie mitgewirkt hat bzw. welche der vorhandenen Forschungsmaterialen von und über Schwarze Menschen in Deutschland verwendet wurden, geht zumindest aus den Quellenangaben leider nicht hervor.

Der Bericht( Ein Auszug)

Black community
108. Members of the Black community continue to be especially vulnerable to racist violence. A number of particularly violent and brutal attacks against Black persons have occurred since ECRI’s third report.

Black persons report that there are still “no-go areas” in some Länder to which they avoid going alone, or avoid going altogether if possible, and to which they would not take their children at all, for fear of being targeted by racist attackers

Black victims of racist violence also report being treated as “second-class” victims when they turn to the police for help, for example being treated as suspected drug-dealers, or at best as timewasters, when they wish to report a racist attack, or benefiting from active police intervention to put a stop to a violent attack, only to discover later that a failure by the police officers present at the scene to arrest or even to check the identities of the attackers has compromised the chances of successful prosecution.

109. Frequently referred to as visible minorities in relation to racist violence, members of the Black community (which is estimated to include 200 000 to 300 000 persons) complain that they are otherwise virtually invisible as active members of society.

Subject to discrimination in access to employment, Black people find few professional role models, whether working as teachers, bank clerks or public servants.

They also suffer from the streaming system in place in the field of education.

Moreover, there is a relative lack of diversity in the media and where Black actors appear, the characters they play often merely respond to prevailing stereotypes.

In the field of advertising, NGOs report that some advertisements depict Black persons as commodities rather than human beings.

ECRI further notes that there appears to have been little research carried out into the situation of the Black community in Germany that would make the issues they face more visible to the authorities and to the public at large, and by the same token easier to tackle.

110. ECRI draws the German authorities’ attention to the recommendations made elsewhere in this report, aimed in particular at overcoming racist violence and racial discrimination in various fields of daily life and at increasing diversity in the media, and stresses their importance to overcoming the forms of racism most frequently experienced by members of the Black community; it furthermore recommends that research be carried out into the specific situation of members of the Black community in Germany, in order to identify any fields where action is most urgently needed to redress the disadvantages they face.
