"calm down !" Skinheads Tip by skinheadreggae

Skinheads, Berlin: 5 reviews and 1 photos

The east of berlin aint "dangerous",
like some of the People above me wrote, I am from BERLIN and this kind of "half-knowledge"
realy pisses me of, cuz it simply aint the truth.
First of all, most of u guys forgot that eastern districts like "friedrichshain", "Prenzlauer berg"
are the places to be if you are interessted in berlins nightlife, art and music.
Furhter i would like to commit that most of berlins skinheads are actually anti-racist,
( "Berlin got one of the biggest antiracist skineheadscenes all over Europe")
Even tho im very "amused" about all this dont go to "east-berlin" crap.
First of all i am a skinhead from east-berlin, i got a lot of colored friends living next to me and i havent seen someone gettin beaten up for things like Religion, Race or what ever since many many years. I dont want to say that there are actually no "dangerous" spots in Berlin but u can find em in WEST and EAST Berlin / Subburb and inner city.
Berlin is a multicult. city with growing differences between "rich" and "poor" people, and this is (like everywhere else)
the only reason why some areas arent as safe as others.
Today the chance of gettin beaten by anyone for being black,chinese,Polish or what ever is much smaller then the Chance of gettin robbed cuz someone likes your mobile phone :P

So before telling ppl not to visit East Berlin or places like Berlin-Ostbahnhof
( wich is actually a joke if you are talking about neo nazis, cuz this district is "dominated"
by people from the mid east / russia / serbia and so on )
what about telling them about "real" dangers like gettin robbed in Neukölln or Tempelhof ?

Just dont Judge people for theyr outfit or the fact that u cant understand
(or dont know *** about ) theyr way of life, like u dont want to be judged by others aswell.
so what about a lil. bit more respect and tolerance ?

Thatz all folks, have a nice stay in Berlin and collect your "own" impressions.
