    A very nice country. But most news are racists.

    Der Spiegel/some Germans may not be happy that a Black person is President of the most powerful country on earth. Therefore, implying through a news that... the USA is actually in decline!

    Every country has something to criticize.. i.e. for Germany, "de-nazification" of the country (1945-1960) should have been more rigorous. And the list goes on.

    •  This is outreagous BS! (10+ / 0-)

      Der Spiegel is pretty liberal and very much in the tank for Obama.  In the weeks before the election they had Romney/Republican bashing articles on their website literally every day.

      And about your racism accusation: According to a poll a couple of weeks before the election 86% of Germans would have voted for Obama if they had been eligible to vote in the US.

      Moreover in my whole adult life (I'm 43) I've never ever encountered a single incident where there was racism in a mainstream newspaper, magazine or on television. Where do you get this BS from?
