This is NOT the result of Hurricane Harvey. Edeka supermarket decided to show its customers the ridiculousness of racism and xenophobia via this unique demonstration.
HAMBURG, GERMANY — Interestingly enough, on August 19, Edeka supermarket confused its customers with an epic anti-racism stance.
After entering Edeka, supermarket customers found signs scattered throughout the store where empty shelving revealed their reality if they allowed xenophobia and racism to ruin their country.
The shelves were stocked with only foods produced by Germans, alone.
Some of the signs stated, "Without diversity, this shelf is rather boring.” Likewise, others noted, “Our selection knows borders today," according to The Local.
One of Edeka's customers toured the supermarket while showcasing its bare shelves, in the video below.
As you can see, the grocer's shelves are emptier than Donald Trump's thought box. Regarding Edeka, supermarket coverage from The Local reports as follows.
In an effort to show people how boring Germany would be without diversity, their customers were left to do without food they consume regularly, such as tomatoes from Spain, olives from Greece, or cheese from France.
And just so there's no confusion about Edeka's anti-racism stance, here are a few more photos.
As mentioned, this isn't to be confused with the empty shelves seen via the coastal regions of Texas, all in preparation for Hurricane Harvey's arrival.
In similar appearances, there were several photos and videos circulating social media which resembled Edeka supermarket's anti-racism demonstration.
However, they had to do with survival and weren't connected in any way. Check the footage below.
Nevertheless, Edeka supermarket's anti-racism example is definitely an undeniable method to get racists to open their eyes and realize everyone's importance.
