After Elke Heidenreich railed against Green politician Sarah Lee Heinrich at Markus Lanz, the excitement was great. The accusation of racism arose quickly. Is the criticism of the literary critic justified? Send us your opinion.
Sarah Lee Heinrich, federal spokeswoman for the Green Youth, was publicly critical of the white majority society in this country. Elke Heidenreich then shot against the 20-year-old in a talk with Markus Lanz. She doesn’t think much and can’t articulate herself well, Heidenreich said about Heinrich. The 78-year-old broadened the gap and said that one had to come back to normality – and thus also away from gender and towards the permission of the question of a person’s origin.
Since then there has been a lot of discussion on the Internet about whether Elke Heidenreich is retrograde and speaks from a privileged perspective. Others find that she is wrongly approached and that what she says is right. How do you feel about it: Is Elke Heidenreich a person from the past or is she being hacked too hard?
