      It only allows me to scroll back to 19:15. 
  2.   There's more important information in that article, which you can translate with

      So much for your dubious info then. Next time post a link to back up your claims.

      Maybe you would be so kind as to check at their website for us as you heard the broadcast and so would know what to look for. After all, we only have your word for it.

      I haven't heard the word Zigeuner used in a long time because the Sinti and Roma successfully lobbied against it's use. As far as I know black people in Germany are also lobbying against the use of Neger. A Deutschlandfunk link:
  6.   You're so right. Their God is only one amongst many. 
  7.   God, God, God - I'm so sick of hearing this US obsession with God. Don't they realise that Covid-19 is God's punishment if you don't wear a mask?

  9. It seems that cases like these may have been holding up the payouts of the Soforthilfe:   Clans are said to have received Corona emergency aid DÜSSELDORF (dpa-AFX) - According to a newspaper report, the North Rhine-Westphalian State Office of Criminal Investigation (LKA) is investigating whether criminal family clans have received emergency aid in the Corona pandemic. "In isolated cases, we have received indications that clan members have received financial corona emergency aid from the federal government," said LKA chief criminal director Thomas Jungbluth to the "Rheinische Post" newspaper (Thursday).   He added, however, that one must bear in mind that a clan member could also be entitled to such emergency aid - for example, if his business had to close down due to the corona crisis. "In principle, a clan member remains entitled to claim. His membership in a family clan does not extinguish this entitlement. We are in talks with tax investigation authorities", Jungbluth told the newspaper.   It was already known at the end of April that members of clans of Arab origin in Berlin are said to have received Corona emergency aid. According to a report by "Spiegel TV", the Berlin criminal police encountered hundreds of applications during an initial investigation. The Corona-emergency aid was to be used to quickly and unbureaucratically disburse aid money in the Corona crisis. In the process, some people who were not entitled to the money held out their hands. Every day, new proceedings are added to the criminal prosecution authorities. In many cases, therefore, the police and the judiciary are not yet able to provide definitive information on the damage caused./sow/DP/zb Translated with (free version)

      Yes, but not every asylum seeker gets a Duldung. It's all a complicated process and at the time the BAMF was overloaded with sorting out who was eligible as asylum seekers and who was not. It was chaos. After a while the German government was even offering refugees from Irak, Iran etc. money to go back from where they came from. Many disillusioned Syrians were going back to Syria of their own free will. Many were sent back to the country of where they first entered the EU (usually Greece). Many didn't stay in Germany and left for Denmark, Sweden, Norway after registration, which was illegal. Many were scamming the system.   Here are the rules concerning Arbeitsmarktzugang für Flüchtlinge:

      Merkel suspended the Dublin agreement only for Syrian asylum seekers due to the war, though loads of non-Syrians  jumped on the bandwaggon, throwing away their non-Syrian passports along the way. Asylum seekers are not even allowed to work, at least for the first three months, and then certain rules apply, which can take years before being eligable in joining the workforce. I gather you were not an asylum seeker so you cannot compare yourself and your Syrian fellow pupils at the Integrationskurs. Germany was not looking for unskilled workers, but for Facharbeiter (still is) of which there is a severe shortage. Plenty of supply of unskilled workers from Eastern EU countries so no shortage there.
