Abstract english

Young people with migration background in Germany are often seen as having or producing problems. In this chapter, I discuss aspects of the German dominant discourse which still constructs this society as culturally and linguistically homogenous. I confront this perspective with language-based expressions by Germans with migration experience in e.g. Rap texts or political manifestos. While it is necessary to avoid simplified idealizations, I suggest that it would be beneficial for all members of German society not to position young people with migration background as deficient.
