one more note about the security here

just another interesting note.... a comment on a problem which has hard solutions, but I thought it was worth noting the increased security here this weekend, because of the terrorist threats, as well as oktoberfest. It is just interesting to me because on two occasions here I have seen police on the street or on the train look through crowds and stop any person with dark skin for questioning.
It made me feel a little sick honestly- possibly also because being a jew in Germany already comes with a lot of baggage for me-- not that this is right necessarily either.

anyways... thought that was interesting info to share.
