Integration

New president Christian Wulff laid down a strong statement for integration and against parallel societies in his inauguration address on Friday. He’s not precisely charismatic, but this was one of the better parts of his speech. This picture is not from after the Argentina game last night but from England the week before (I’m posting this in advance). See the girl with the head scarf on the left? It’s not a bad sign to see people of all backgrounds celebrate “our” team together, no matter if immigrants or their children still celebrate their other country’s team additionally. Identities are more complicated than black and white.
