Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is a race problem, clearly. Especially when it comes to police differentiating between "Arabs" and "white" people when checking id, etc.., or to get into certain jobs.

But it is often noted that having a bad address, from one of the lousy suburb, is enough not to get to the job interview.

Some of the projects now have such a bad reputation, lousy education, hard access by public transportation, that everybody is hit by discriminations. In this way the riots where not particularly racial.
