To OpenSachsen, Dresden is a very nice city, safe to stay here. Why to call racist?

@OpenSachsen
Dresden is not racist, but please look at the matter of facts, we have a very low percentage of arabs or african refugees AND there aren't major crimes. In fact, Dresden is really safe for anyone.
One doesn't need to be a genius to realise that it's the refugees to cause chaos.
Best regards.

Currently doing a research project on Sachsen and it's very disappointing to see how racist seems to be a big portion of the population that lives there.

Agree with Anonymous, it's a nice place and safe. There isn't Arabic in Dresden.
Europe can be much safer when Arabic will leave.

One of the few cities with no muslims, for this reason, it's a very safe city :) If you are from Europe, or Asia, or America you are welcomed to visit Dresden!! but not muslims
