Melchior fuss: suspicion of racism at Christmas crib

Racism or not? A debate flares up around the “Three Wise Men”. In fact, the dark-skinned Melchior is supposed to use racist stereotypes.

When you think of Christmas, you think of delicious-smelling baked apples, the odd snowfall and the Christmas story with Joseph, Maria, Jesus and the “three wise men” Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. But of all people, the dark-skinned Melchior comes under fire. The accusation: he was clearly using racist stereotypes.
As 24hamburg.de * reveals, the parish in Ulm has therefore decided to ban Melchior from the Christmas flu.

While the violation of the Evangelical Münster community in the "Initiative Black People in Germany" met with great enthusiasm, the Diocese of Regensburg is of the opinion that the "portrayal of King Melchior as a black person has nothing in common with racist thinking." * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
