Germany’s New ‘Anti-Discrimination’ Commissioner Called Ethnic Germans “Potatoes”

Germany’s new ‘anti-discrimination’ commissioner is coming under scrutiny because she previously used derogatory language in referring to ethnic Germans as “potatoes.”

Ferda Ataman was handed the role despite being accused of engaging in anti-white racism in a magazine column she wrote.

In the Spiegel article, Ataman wrote that many German citizens “sometimes mutate into thin-skinned Emo-Germans” if they are called “potatoes.”

“A surprising number of people see this as insulting discrimination. Why?” she asked, a bizarre question given what the reaction would be if brown people were collectively referred to as coconuts.

“So the outrage about ‘potato Germans’ is about something else. It’s about the inner resistance to deal with yourself and your own privileges,” Ataman waffled.

The slur appears to be similar to how middle class leftists in the United Kingdom refer to white working class people who hold right-wing views as “gammon.”

“She has also referred to Germans as “almans,” which is derogatory slang for Germans displaying “typical” German traits,” reports Remix News.

Ataman also bizarrely encouraged ethnic Germans to give their children foreign-sounding names, while asserting that non-Germans should be given German names.

The commissioner also went on a tweet delete spree before she was given the new position, presumably in an effort to hide her other odious views.

“Anyone who has to clean up their past by deleting thousands of tweets in order to hide their position should not bear any future responsibility in the federal government as anti-discrimination officer,” said Christoph de Vries, a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) member of the Bundestag.

Free Democrats (FDP) member Linda Teuteberg said Ataman represents “divisive identity politics, defamation of those who think differently and a lack of willingness to differentiate.”

The lesson appears to be that if you openly mock white people based on the color of their skin, you’ll be rewarded by the government.

As we highlighted yesterday, despite having an ‘anti-discrimination’ commissioner, Germany is still struggling with the concept of diversity being a strength.

Figures released by the German government show that non-German foreigners are responsible for over 39 per cent of total murders and 56.25 per cent of manslaughter convictions, despite representing only 12 per cent of the population.
