Kurds are free, they are not under blockade or discriminated against. Turkey had a Kurdish prime minister in the past, show me how many countries would let someone from minority become their leader. There are Kurds in all walks of life in Turkey. MPs, very successful businessmen, actors, singers. Since Ottoman Empire, Turks are very used to living in harmony with different races. The separatist Kurds are a whole different story, they say that Kurds need a country of their own. Nobody owes them land. Yet, there is a de-facto state called Kurdistan in northern Iraq which is far more than enough for the entire Kurdish population of the world. This being the case, their demands have always been absurd and nobody takes them seriously. They are treated as the true terrorists they are since they kill people in an otherwise entirely peaceful area. It's not for no reason that US and EU, along with majority of the world, consider PKK a Kurdish terrorist organization. Don't mix apples with oranges since your situation is nothing comparable.
