Millions of foreigners, settled in Germany brought their own cultural heritage and values in the Germany and they are still living as a separate entity in the Germany. The family structure has a prime importance in foreign culture. Usually a household centered on a nucleus of a family but sometimes some offshoots are also there. Although many households lives in a nuclear family structure but they are always ready to help other family members and friends in the hour of need. The values and norms of Foreign German residents were consist of their religion, which is Catholic, and their denizen customs and myths.
In the service and spiritual revelries all the family, friends, neighbors and close relatives congregate to commemorate, to eat together and to rejoice. Therefore the lives, beliefs, customs, morals and ethos of Alien German Citizens were based on their spirituality and so church was the core element of their lives. Regardless of Germany’s chronicle with concern to minorities, the realm is deficient in a state opposed to inequity laws. Hitherto, the German financial system depends on constant flow of migrant from Eastern Europe, Turkey, former Republic of Yugoslavia and somewhere else to sate various occupations with no extra erudition.
Gerhard Schroeder, Chancellor, has enthused controversy by showing a yearning to revamp the country’s citizenship rules to convenient for foreign born Germans to befit German citizens. It gave the desired number of labor to German government and a large number of employments to the people of Non European which is economically beneficial for Non European government. German government response to Living conditions of minorities: German government has always tried their level best to provide best and equal opportunities to all their citizens.
Numerical goals force employers to consider workers from the entire spectrum of the labor force, more effectively tapping German potential talent. Besides, we do not have objective or foolproof means to determine which applicant will perform best once hired. Allowing minorities a few points on entrance exams and civil service tests, for example, does not mean we are not getting the best person for the job. Prejudice persists, and thus the leveling influence of assenting action is still required. Any consideration of fairness cannot ignore the continuing consequences of past discrimination.
Many members of minority groups still suffer disadvantages in socialization patterns, education success, and self-esteem that stem from previous injuries. Until these effects have been eradicated, true equity cannot be achieved. Furthermore, for many reasons the white male monopoly is unlikely to even consider extending opportunities to minorities unless forced to do so. On the basis of massive absorption of foreigners as German citizen, German ethnicity is reforming from uniformity to heterogeneous inhabitants after the World War II and now enrich with different cultures, religions and racially.
Exhibition of anti-discrimination and anti violence behaviors are mandatory to nourish the German society by legal authenticity, civilization and strong unification. The exertion of reunion and periodical migration of people from East Germany, Emigrated Germans (Aussiedler – Who returned to the Germany after the World War II), and asylum seekers have aggravated and made observable mysteries of state recognition, variety, migration and incorporation of aliens.
These measures have influenced the German Political society and split the customary group structure with the alliance of “Existing and Modern Politics”. These modern veracities have shown a path of development against xenophobic fierceness, anti-settlers and dogmatist oratory. Conclusion Prejudice is basically an internal phenomenon that entails the act of prejudging, or the making of judgments based on insufficient evidence. According to most studies, prejudice toward other human beings is not an inborn but a learned response.
In short, we learn from others to use the mental shortcut of prejudice. Because ethical standards are not codified, some problems always occur. An ethical dilemma “arises in situations when each alternative choice or behavior is undesirable because of potentially negative ethical consequences. Right or wrong cannot be clearly identified”. (Futrell, 2002) After all the above discussion, it can easily be said that life is not so easy in the so-called Land of opportunities. The German society assumes the wrong meaning of progress.
In order to achieve their “Fantasy”, Germans become materialistic, pleasure seeking and shallow people without emotions and soul. They did not treat the immigrants as they deserve. They had used them when they are in desperate need of manpower but afterwards turned its back from them. People from the entire third world countries still living in the quest of “Fantasy” and consider that there are several benefits of being a German citizen, but the condition of German immigrants depicts that life is harder and much more difficult for them in Germany than the life in their native countries.
