YouTuber Zoie Marie: What it means to be black in Germany
BEING BLACK IN GERMANY 🇩🇪
YouTuber Zoie Marie is an American living in Germany with roots in Jamaica. IN the video below she narrates her experience as a black person in Germany.
While being black abroad makes you definitely stand out, Zoie affirms that being black in Germany is more of a shocking experience than in America.
America has a somewhat diverse set of people and this contact dims the sense of shock but does not completely eliminate it.
The YouTuber says that she gets stared a lot where she lives, that is the southern part of Germany, and that it borders on uncomfortable as people do not stop staring even once you stare back.
“The staring gets a little intense and it is hard to blend in here, very hard to disappear into the wall because you’re black and it just is what it is,” Zoie says.
BEING BLACK IN GERMANY 🇩🇪 Welcome back 🌿 So I thought it would be interesting to share some of my experiences and focus on some things which happen/happened to me here in Germany as a black woman. Please also note, I do love living in Germany! I made the decision to move here for a reason, and if I could do it again I would 💕 This video is a bit short but I do hope I answered some of your questions. *DISCLAIMER* This video is representing all of MY experiences! I also want to make it clear that I really do still love Germany despite some of the sad incidents I have faced. There is a reason I moved here in the first place. Living here has provided me with so many opportunities and given me great adventures which I will treasure for the rest of my life. I have met really amazing people and also really nasty ones. But like ANYWHERE in the world this stuff happens. I will be making a ‘5 Reasons Why I Love Germany Video’ soon! SONGS ⇣ I don’t own this song. All copyright goes to the owner of this song.
