There's a word for you Tom: Besserwisser
My German's not too good. I'll take that as a complement. Thanks!

Re: Ku Klux Klan in Kanton Schwyz

More kids having fun at carnival time.

Last year we had the amusing farmers marching through the streets of Schwyz in their Ku Klux Klan robes.

This year, in Vilters-Wangs, SG , we have a carnival float with a photo of of the local FDP politician, Nirosh Manoranjithan and the slogan:

"How many niggers do we need in St.Gallen?" (translated).



The float was finally allowed in the parade with the word "neger" lightly covered.

On a similar note
in Belgium

and Spain

Racism, xenophobia and anti-semitism never really stopped in Europe or elsewhere, but they gain more and more relevance/legitimacy due to some politicians and journalists.

Making it personal though is pretty low.

Again, a bunch of idiots. When I saw the photo of the float and the covered-up word, I asked myself if the float should have been banned. Im still not sure.
