Leipziger on Jan 15, 2023:
I've been living here for 21 years now. The rich live in the south, right winged in the north and the east, leftist in the west, and some unbothered industries in the north west.

Leipzig is generally fine as it is a a city with a large university that also offers natural science bachelor courses for international students (the one and only in Germany), which is why there are a lot of international students here.

Connewitz (with the leftists) and the Eisenbahnstraße (all the immigrants) are the areas where few violent scenes are sometimes held.

Leipzig belongs to the far right winged state called Saxony, hence quite a number of right wingers here. However Leipzig's green party is strong, which is why Leipzig is considered the "Green Island of Saxony".

A lot of immigrant clans have built up over the years, causing disputes among other immigrants and other people (occasionally). Drunk and a few homeless Germans can also bother people quite a bit, especially in the city center and at night. Over the years, the immigrants have also started to disrespect other people (by claiming their way of living is the right way of living), which is also a reason for the disputes. They still have to learn that Leipzig is not the Middle East or Istanbul just by having a million Kebab shops open.

Maybe a few unusual stares from some people if you are not German-looking, but nothing really happens if you just don't care and look away minding your own business.

Generally speaking: Leipzig is becoming a more left-winged city in an increasing right-winged state. Future outcomes may give surprises.

Lots of racists in Leipzig. If you don't look German, be careful for physical attacks.

There are parts of Leipzig that look like Afghanistan. The Police have to show up every day. Politicians say it's cultural enrichment but you'll never find their kids in public schools or their families live in those neighborhoods. It's not bad enough that Germany after the WW2 invited millions of Turks the politicians falsely thought they were going to leave the country - they didn't - uneducated people coming from Eastern Europe, the Middle Easterners and East Africans are also a part of the dispossession of the German population and they are big contributors to the increased crime rates. No problems with East Asians though, unlike other races, getting mugged by a Chinese is very unlikely. Anonymous wrote - "Harassment because of colorful skin...". PURE LIE. The reality is, it happens the other way around instead... It happens regularly to my family (white skin, blue eyes, typical properties that are unwanted in certain neighborhoods and when these people from completely different societies move in, Germans move out, taking their children out of public schools, moving away their businesses... I don't know why...). And when a 100 year old German Bakery moves out together with their owners, what you'll get a Kebab shop (right next to 30 other Kebab shops in that particular neighborhood). This is the reality folks, no matter how the mainstream media tries to convince you about the "benefits" of this process or reminds you 20 times a day how racist the Germans are. No one likes to be dispossessed in ANY country, it is just the uniqueness of the West that people are not allowed to talk about the truth.

Harassment because of colorful skin is higher than listed. I live in Leipzig. I see it quite often. Most people especially immigrants don’t report because they are afraid of police.
