Attitudes to different cultures in Berlin
Haven't moved to Berlin yet, but am definitely thinking about doing so.

Am wondering, what are their views on different cultures? Indian etc.

I'm obviously gonna visit beforehand but feel no harm in asking this question.

Well you have vegans who hate everyone who isn't, feminazis who hate all men, misogynists who are dicks and hate women, meat eaters who piss of veggies.

On the whole people actually get on together, just don't mention postal service, BVG inspectors, dog poo, rent, new airport, Sunday closing, companies not speaking English.

Unless you are a Turk, carry the name Mohamad (and other typical muslim names) or your are dark skinned walking in the old east you should be fine.

Very complex answer. as a white u.s. american i can only say that engaging with white Germans around this issue is pretty limited. the word race is not allowed here, for example.

People believe in color blindness. very little scholarship around this even.

    As a black US American I can tell you your statement is completely false. Germans absolutely talk about and see race. I have had conversations about race with white, black, and brown Germans. I can't speak to German scholarship on the topic, but believe me - they are not colorblind

Seems like you haven’t been to Berlin yet. Maybe visiting the city before moving to it isn’t such a bad idea.

But you definitely has nothing to worry about: no one cares where you come from, how you look like and what you define yourself as - it’s a crazy city.

And it’s famous for its level of ignorance for such things.
