Da ich selber im Ausland lebe, kann ich nur sagen, dass sich Einige, die immer noch Vorurteile gegenueber Deutschland aufgrund seiner Geschichte haben, bestaetigt fuehlen, dass sich die Deutschen ‘niemals aendern’ werden. Wenn man bedenkt, wie exportabhaengig die deutsche Wirtschaft ist, und wie die internationale Presse rassistische Vorkommnisse dieser Art in Deutschland in sich aufsaugt, dann helfen auch Menschen wie Thilo Sarrazin und seine Anhaenger, Deutschland sich ein Stueckchen abzuschaffen.
