Germany proposed to delete the word “race” from the Constitution

The Minister of justice of Germany Kristine Lambrecht made the removal of the term “race” from the Constitution of the country. She said this on 12 June in an interview with RND.

According to her, in 1949, when compiled the text of the basic law was formulated base to protect citizens from discrimination, the terminology was correct for the postwar period. Today, however, this word seems outdated, but the protection standards considers the broader concept of “race”, she said.

The government needs to find a different wording, the Minister said.

The deletion of the word “race” from the Constitution insisted upon by the deputies of the Bundestag from the “green” of the SPD, the Free democratic party and the left; they believe that this wording legitimizes the division of people into categories.

Article 3 of the German Constitution reads: “no one may be harmed or given preference on the grounds of his sex, origin, race, language, homeland and birthplace, his religion, his religious or political views.”

To change the text of the basic law requires the vote of two thirds of the Bundestag.
