Reading and Discussion with Alice Hasters

German-language Event

“What white people do not want to hear about racism” written by Alice Hasters

Why is it so hard to talk about racism?

“Can I touch your hair?”, “Can you get a sunburn?”, “Where are you from?” People who ask questions like that usually don’t mean any harm. But still: They are racist. Why, white people often don’t want to hear that.

Alice Hasters explains it anyway. She describes vividly and patiently how racism shapes her everyday life as a Black woman in Germany. It becomes clear that racism is not only a problem on the right wing of society. And confronting one’s own racism is painful at first, but the only way to overcome it.
