are you prejudiced against germans?

I just got blasted cause I said something about being German. seriously? My ancestors left Germany in the 1700's to settle south Louisiana. My family had nothing to do with the huge scar on Germany's history. Apparently I'm an evil person because I want to learn the German language now, who knew!

  • I wonder if the person who blasted you is aware of we as a nation did to the Native inhabitants of this country? Every country has something or another to not be particularly proud of, one way or another. Just as they have things to be proud of, as well.

  • I don't hold anything against Germany. I mean, that was a whole other generation. Just because all that stuff happened in Germany, doesn't mean everyone was involved. A lot of people had to fake liking hilter just because he would have killed them or imprisoned them, had they stood up. I'm not one to judge what decisions they had to make.....
    I don't think people should be so judgemental and ignorant.
