Racism and Multi-Culturalism in France
Phil Miller, who blogs at Market Power, cites this piece about horrifying racism in France. Here is an excerpt:
On March 8, tens of thousands of high school students marched through central Paris to protest education reforms announced by the government. Repeatedly, peaceful demonstrators were attacked by bands of black and Arab youths--about 1,000 in all, according to police estimates. The eyewitness accounts of victims, teachers, and most interestingly the attackers themselves gathered by the left-wing daily Le Monde confirm the motivation: racism.
Some of the attackers openly expressed their hatred of "little French people." One 18-year-old named Heikel, a dual citizen of France and Tunisia, was proud of his actions. He explained that he had joined in just to "beat people up," especially "little Frenchmen who look like victims." He added with a satisfied smile that he had "a pleasant memory" of repeatedly kicking a student, already defenseless on the ground.
Another attacker explained the violence by saying that "little whites" don't know how to fight and "are afraid because they are cowards." Rachid, an Arab attacker, added that even an Arab can be considered a "little white" if he "has a French mindset." The general sentiment was a desire to "take revenge on whites."

It's happening here too. So what are we going to do about it?

Since "multicultural" societies cannot conceive of racism being committed by any non-white, nothing.
The term "reverse racism" was coined to cover these situtations. The term wouldn't exist if non-whites were held to the same standards as whites.

Abu # 2 in Iraq for Zarqwee has gone to his 72 virgins; before boarding the one-way express he had this on the 'Net:>>>
..... That, plus a smoldering "safehouse" full of Syrian martyr-tards whose families all expect one of my famous personalized thank-you notes:
"Dear Mr. and Mrs. _AL-DURRA____:
Please find enclosed a Ziploc containing the remains of your martyr _TARIQ____. Though he is now frollicking in Paradise, his comrades and I will always remember him for his ___POKEMON COLLECTION____. Thanks to his holy sacrifice, we are one step closer to __EXTERMINATING THE JEWS___.
Yours in Sharia,
Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi
Okay, I know, form letters are cold.>>>more

These blacks and arabs who are beating up "little frenchmen" should look at their history. Europeans can be down right nasty with the right leader. The French Army (cheese eating surrender monkey aside) can be especially brutal when unleased. Just ask Greenpeace or Ivory Coast's Air Force.
Europe is in a slumber right now but these immigrants should watch themselves because Europe doesn't cherish personal freedom like the US or immigration quite like Canada.

By the time the slumbering little whites snap out of it, they'll be the minority, and will have to convert or live as second-class citizens.
The hooligans' hatred is explained by, but not excused by, reprensible violations of their human rights such as this:
[QUOTE]Accustomed to shielding domestic textile producers for almost five decades, the [European] Commission acquiesced to renewed protectionism, threatening to bankrupt retailers and attenuate consumer choices, all without convincing evidence that European producers would be able to continue to compete on cost in a predominantly labor-intensive industry ... higher prices for protected products do adversely affect European pocketbooks. Some estimates suggest that a four-person household pays an additional 250-350 euros per year for apparel and textiles, which like all government interventions, disproportionately harms the poor.[UNQUOTE] http://www.mises.org/story/1913
... and a whole galaxy of other legislative violations of their citizens' right to property, right to work, right to trade freely, ...
Frenchies to Canucks: c'mon in and join us in the cultural and demographic dead pool, the water's fine!

oh brother! we all know that the REAL problem regarding racism is not against white people. while you will find a small percentage of those kinds of issues, you'll find infinitely more cases of white french people who are racist against people of color, not just arabs but also africans, asians and latinos.
