Controversy has erupted within the Burschenschaften — more or less the German version of college fraternities, but with sillier hats — over accusations of discrimination after the Alte Breslauer Burschenschaft in Bonn sought to expel a particular Burschenschaft for allowing a German of Chinese descent, Kai-Ming Au, to join. Burschenschaften have traditionally had strict regulations on only allowing Germans of German descent to become members.
While I have a million snarky comments about Germans and discrimination, it’s too easy. Also, I’ve been banned from making remarks about Germans forever after writing about a German Internet company with a squinty-eyed mascot. Four years later and I still get hate-mail.
