Upon walking U.S. inner-city streets you sooner or later come upon groups
of black kids wearing prison-style outfits; there is a boom box, and rap
music. And inevitably you will hear the N-word. Upon entering a district
housing migrants in any European city you will encounter almost identical
scenes – youngsters dressed in prison style, the boom box, rap. Only
most of the kids are of a „white“ or olive complexion. They call
themselves „Wiggers“, „white Niggers“ or „Black albinos.“
