With our nation more partitioned than ever in regards to issues of racism, xenophobia, and everything in between, it’s important to note that diversity is never, ever the enemy.

And while America may be struggling to find a common ground on these issues, it’s important( and frankly, kind of depressing) be informed that we’re not alone. In recent years, Germany has had to deal with its fair share of issues following a 2015 decision to allow more than a million asylum seekers entry into the country. At the heart of the problem is the idea that these immigrants have “failed to assimilate.” Worse still is that many erroneously associate refugees and migrants seeking asylum with terrorism.

And one German grocery store has constructed their posture on diversity known. What they did is important and something we all need to see.

Regular purchasers at the Edeka supermarket in Hamburg were caught off her guard when they marched inside to find the majority of members of the shelves and display cases primarily empty.

Upon closer inspection customers began to notice that all non-German products were removed from the store shelves.

Replacing its consideration of this agenda item were signalings containing anti-xenophobic messages.
