    Do you need more evidence as to whether Kurds are accepted or not??

    Turgut Özal was born in Malatya and was of partial Kurdish[3] descent.

    They are accepted in Turkey, just like any other ethnicity, nationality, race, are accepted. People often confuse, that Kurds are the ones who stir up problems in Turkey, yet they forget that they are tricked into that play. It's not the Kurds that Turkey doesn't accept, it's the PKK, they are the ones who are trying to ruin Turkey, therefore, they aren't welcomed there. Just like anywhere else, if you try to mess up someones life style, etc, you aren't welcomed there.

    Maybe they are,officially, but what I can see from the outside they are treated as second class citizens.

    No. The Kurds have been excluded by Turkish people.. many therefor have immigrated to other countries, such as Germany, Berlin, where there is a whole Turkish society.. and foremost, more acceptance.
