"This is how the gauchos walk, the gauchos walk like this," chanted the Germans, as they  mocked the South Americans as being hunched-over, short and little people.

Then the Germans chanted, “this is how the Germans walk, the Germans walk like this.” With their backs straight, tall, and proud.

LMAO, it’s funny how the Germans helped Brazilians but then they pull this kind of racist shit and think they’re being cute and funny. Hell nah with this shit. To anyone who thinks they were being playful and not racist can go unfollow me now because you are just as trash as they are.

It’s one thing to banter and joke around but they crossed that line with their little jig. We, South Americans, are not all small and we do not walk with our backs hunched. We are proud of who we are and we do not need you to stereotype us at all. I don’t care if they didn’t mean that way, it still came off as racist and disrespectful. The Germans’ dance still reinforces their white privilege and white superiority over pocs. This shit is not okay to do at all.

So fuck the German NT.

All I have to say is:
-Their Captain Philipp Lahm is very short
-Jerome Boateng isn’t white
-I’m pretty sure it’s not aimed at Argentine’s in a racist way. It’s because the losing team is sad and hunched over because they lost and the Germany NT is standing proud because they won. It’s nothing to do with race. And the song goes back a long time in German football. It’s just a bit of banter and fun
-Germany is in fact incredibly fair and equal compared to a lot of countries and does not promote racism in any way

That rant about the Germany nt being racist has to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve read this year
Congrats

Let me first of all say, that anyone who follows me knows I don’t really care that much for the German NT, mainly because I support Italy and the two countries are natural enemies, due to die Deutschländers inability to ever beat Italy in a cup game.

However, I think you could be reading too much into this chant.

The thing about Germany is, they use this chant against everyone, not just South Americans.

As proof, here’s them using the chants against the English, the Welsh, and the Czech Republic.

So it’s not just them making fun of the South Americans for being short little brown people as you assume it is. It’s about them walking tall because they think they’re better than everyone else. 

Now if anyone wants to question my credibility, it should be known that I am a woman of color who has dealt with racism and sexism all of of my life. I have also spoken out against racism, homophobia and sexism in all of my fandoms, including football, and I have even recently criticized the German fans for donning blackface and making monkey chants during some of the games that took place during the group stages.

That to me is much worse than fans boasting about walking tall through a song.

So in conclusion, no, I don’t think the ‘So gehn die Deutschen’ chant is racist, and I think if you want to get outraged, you should focus your anger elsewhere.

(And I’m obviously referring to the OP and not the person I reblogged this from.)

Ok. I’m gonna come out and say a thing because people are forgetting about how racism works.

I’m going to start by reminding everyone that using words that can be taken as slurs casually doesn’t not give you a free pass to ignore people who call you out on the fact that you are offending them. Also, just because you use it all the time, doesn’t mean it’s never racist. I would argue that even if you use it against another group, it’s still racist because where does it come from and what were the feelings that caused it to be used anyway.

In terms of this instance, I wish somebody would just stop and fucking apologize for hurting people because clearly there were racist implications. It’s not okay just because you didn’t mean it. PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO BE PART OF THE KKK TO DO RACIST THINGS. RACISM IS BUILT INTO A LOT (IF NOT MOST) CULTURES. 

And the old, there are better things to be angry about is gonna make me flip my shit because it’s some of the most invalidating bullshit ever.

In Germany we don’t say “I love you”. We say “Des intressiert mi ois ned, der Scheißdregg. Weltmeister simma, den Pott hamma. Den Scheißdreck ‘Goidna Schua’ konnst da hinda d’Ohrn schmiern.” which roughly translates to “You’re looking nice”. I think that’s beautiful.
