Via Gates of Vienna, first a video about a German pharmacist in Mannheim, who is the last native German with a business in 'Little Istanbul' there:

The fool is 'grateful' for his Turkish customers, even though he admits that they prefer the Turkish personnel he has had to hire to interact with, "because they can speak with the patrons in their own language". Also, he states that without the Turks, 'Little Istanbul' would be dead. Talk about putting the cart before the horse! Without Turks pushing away Hans, Helga, Kurt and Ilse over the decades, Little Istanbul would simply be still German!

In a country where newcomers have gotten so tremendously many chances, it should be THEY speaking German, not Turkish. Also, if Little Istanbul is now almost 100 per cent Turkish, this is only proof that over the years, a soft ethnic cleansing has taken place. It is impossible that the original BioGerman population of this part of Mannheim all left for 'racist' reasons. There is no other explanation other than that the mores of the Turks and the way they treated the 'natives' must have been particularly offending - otherwise you don't leave.

As always, many thanks to MissPiggy for translation, and Vlad Tepes for subtitling.
