The state constitutional court of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern)  ruled on Thursday, 19th of December, that sanctioning the leader of the AfD group in the state parliament, Nikolaus Kramer, over the use of the N-Word amounted to a restriction of his right to free speech.

Kramer even admitted, that the usage of the N-Word was well-considered, and used it again in a speech.

The state constitutional court of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern)  ruled on Thursday, 19th of November, that sanctioning the leader of the AfD group in the state parliament, Nikolaus Kramer, over the use of the N-Word is a restriction of his rights to free speech.


Kramer even admitted, that the usage of the N-Word was well-considered, and used it again in a speech.


The German state constitutional court of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania says the following:


“The court admits that "Neger" is generally understood as derogatory according to the current usage of language. However, whether it was meant in this way, could only be judged from the context. The call to order had thus violated the delegate in his rights to speak.”

Let us stand up for the fact that the term gets classified as racist in Germany and that the usage of the word should no longer be part of the norm. And certainly not in a state parliament!

The N-Word is always derogatory and deeply insulting! The usage is blatant racism.

Only people who are affected by this term and who find it to be highly derogatory and dehumanizing can decide whether it's racist or not - Black People.

We are a part of this society, and like every other citizen, we have a right to human dignity and equality, both are attacked by this judgment, which gives racism in Germany even more scope for expression.

Blacks associate the term with much suffering, discrimination, violence towards them, inequality and dehumanization!

We must not tolerate that people who know what it feels like to get called the N-Word decide whether the term (no matter in what context) is racist or not.

And if they don’t know, it’s their duty to gather all information, to make a solid judgement. 

Every Anti-Racism organisation's website gives information on the N-Word. 

If we keep silent on this, what will they do next? 

Let us collectively express our resentment and anger! Racism must not be given a place in our society.

This judgement is a slap in the face of all of us and cannot be accepted!

This term can and will NEVER have a positive connotation.
