Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I posted a diary a while back with arrest statistics (which means that probably inflates the dark factor):

  • one third were North African
  • one third were (black) African
  • one third were white

With the following points, again:

  • being North African in France does not make you a practising Muslim
  • the riots were not motivated by religious or ethic reasons in any way, there were about economic alienation
  • it is not surprising to see recent immigrants on the lowest economic rungs

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
