Germany: Frankfurt becomes first German city where natives are a minority

For the first time, more than half of Frankfurt residents now have a migrant background, according to official data from the city’s Office of Statistics and Elections.

Presenting the figures, which show that 51.2 per cent of people living in Frankfurt have a migrant background, the city’s secretary of integration Sylvia Weber said: “We have minorities with relatively large numbers in Frankfurt but no group with a clear majority.”

Representing 13 per cent of the population, Turks are the city’s largest non-German minority, and 61 per cent of residents who were born abroad are citizens of other European Union (EU) countries.

…Economically, the report shows big disparities between foreigners and Germans, with the income of 49 per cent of people with roots outside Germany falling below the poverty line compared to 23 per cent amongst natives.

In terms of employment rates, 83 per cent of German men and 78 per cent of German women are in work, figures which drop to 73 per cent and 59 per cent amongst men and women with foreign backgrounds, respectively.

Weber hailed the rate of single motherhood amongst women of foreign origin, which the report showed was significantly higher than that of native Germans in the city, as “a possible sign that female migrants are emancipating themselves”, and called for more research into the subject.

A book published last year which predicted native Germans would soon be reduced to a minority in Frankfurt, Augsburg, and Stuttgart — joining other “majority minority” cities in Europe which include Amsterdam, London, Brussels, and Geneva  — celebrates the demographic transformations as providing greater opportunities for “social justice”.

    What’s that distant thunder I hear in the East? Could it be Bismarck and Hindenburg rolling over in their tombs. Giants are fallen all over Europe. Their legacy being handed to the unworthy and undeserving.

    Nope – nothing at all to do with Muslim men with multiple wives claiming to be “single” to get more benefits. Nothing to see here, move on.

    23 percent of native Germans’ income falls below the poverty line? And they’re importing people, 49 percent of whose earning power is below the poverty line? I’m curious to see how this is going to play out.

      Merkel doesn’t care, she’ll be dead by then and she has no kids or grandchildren to worry about.

      Germany will become just as economically dysfunctional as every muslim country is (expect those with oil). It will no longer be able to pay welfare and other tax payer funded “goodies” to any one. The “immigrants” may have to go somewhere else for free stuff.

      Isn’t there a report just issued by the German govt indicating that 75% of
      recent migrants are expected to be on welfare for the rest of their life.
      To be fair Frankfurt is the business center of Germany and more than 50%
      of non natives are expats from the rest of Europe, North America and even Asia.

    Congratulations, enjoy your diversity.

    All well and good – or at least according to the objectives of progressives – but I have to wonder if those dwindling numbers of folk of European descent will be treated as well by the new majority as they had treated the latter when they were minorities. Somehow, looking at places like Pakistan, SA, Indonesia, Egypt, etc., I have my doubts.

    As long as natives show an unwillingness to defend themselves, … well, take it away, Clark Gable.
