A new campaign for diversity has caused an uproar in Hanau, Germany. As part of the campaign, three special “various parking spaces” were created near the entrance to the car park. But not everyone is excited, especially online.
The German city of Hanau in the state of Hesse has allocated three parking spaces in an underground parking garage in the middle of the LGBTI community. Titled “Hanau will be colourful,” the campaign aims to promote diversity and tolerance in this way.
The walls of the parking spaces are also colorful and they are painted in rainbow colors thus attracting a lot of attention. The car parks were recently opened in the presence of local councilor Thomas Morlock. He stated that the goal was to help people “who have a special need for protection”.
It is precisely this statement by Morloch that is causing division on social media. Because while some Facebook users are happy with it and think the campaign is “cool”, other sites are being ridiculed and criticized by many others. An angry user describes the idea as too stupid for words: “Anyone who uses a parking space is actually more at risk. If some psychopath is planning something, he stalks his victim and hits him in the head after all outside the guard area. How did you come up with that stupid idea? ?”
Other jokes: “Because equality is so important to me, of course I just park my SUV there so I don’t have to walk far.” Finally, another user says: “Basically a good idea, but there’s probably no extra guard there to help out in case something goes wrong. Instead, you park your car on a dashboard, as it were.” So she concluded with a better suggestion: “Make your entire garage colorful and increase the overall safety level.”
