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.
