I was thinking..while in the shower.. about the ‘real’ and ‘acutal’ definition of a refugee. Aka what it is meant to be/do and how it is played out. From my experience of volunteer weekly for over a year at a refugee camp in Berlin (one of 3-4) and seeing the turn overs and changed and ‘types’ of people from new borns to elderly coming in and out it is all so confusing. In very basic terms. A refugee is someone who is seeking asylum from their home country and choosing to leave it because they are being discriminated for being black or white or christian or muslim. And they want to live somewhere else. To save themselves. To live humanely. Peacefully, obtain a job to sustain themselves until things or if things ever ‘calm down’ at home. Raise their family without being in fear every waking moment of the day. Letting there kids grow up without having to see what they see. However, why do they seem to be treated more as criminals? Maybe it is the case that some ‘get through’ and are not ‘clean.’ But that is not their fault.
I think its a sad confusing situation we’re in. Like, “hey, you’re lucky to be here and not there ..here’s a roll for your kid and a cot if you’re lucky.” They’ve done nothing wrong. IF anything they’re the ballsy ones trying to get out and raising awareness for whats going on in their country and that its fucked up. Salute to you, refugees!
It’s sad when ‘white people’ from countries where they are the ‘majority’ complain about foreigners … when they weren’t event the ‘original’ people on the land.
