Parents of mostly North African and Arab Muslim students in schools of the district of Petit Bard in Montpellier are angry about a lack of school diversity, both social and ethnic. Yet fail to understand that they are the reason native French don’t want to be there.
Boulevard Voltaire Massive Muslim immigration into France has resulted in white flight from many neighborhoods, destroying the idea of multiculturalism and making for a very homogenous population.
Just go to the exit of the neighborhood schools and you’ll see that close to 95% or even 100% of students are Arab-Muslim and that the only” white students “in these institutions are teachers. (They could always institute forced busing, a colossal leftist failure which was tried in the United States to force integration)
Faced with this situation of ethnic ghetto, is needed to promote as much diversity? Should we open the area to the rest of the city including sending children Petit Bard Montpellier in other schools as demanded by parents? To answer this, it is essential to consider similar cases he had there in Montpellier and the region.
At last count, there were a total of 751 Sensitive Urban Zones, a comprehensive list of which can be found on a French government website, complete with satellite maps and precise street demarcations. An estimated five million Muslims live in the ZUS — parts of France over which the French state has lost control.
The ghetto phenomenon is not new in Montpellier and France in general. Take the case of La Paillade. The construction of Line 1 tram linking the area to the city center of Montpellier was the direct consequence of rapid degradation of the station area.
Another example is the initiative to put the train line Nîmes / Le Grau-du-Roi at 1 € the summer to allow “Muslim youth” to go to the beach has had unintended consequences with an explosion in fights between Muslims and non-Muslims and attacks on shops of the resort by Muslim youth, forcing many businesses to close their shops after the arrival of the trains.
The choice of promoting the social mix and ethnicity is not recent. For years, local politicians dispersed the Muslim populations of “sensitive” neighborhoods of Montpellier and Nîmes to small towns and villages of the region.
The consequences were painful with the emergence of drug trafficking and people fleeing the neighborhoods. The most famous example remains Lunel, which has since become an important drug trafficking, weapons and international jihadism center.
No surprise that in all these former social-communist villages, the right wing National Front party is now the most popular.
There is little chance that initiatives to promote diversity in the neighborhood Petit Bard would lead to more positive results. If the Ministry of Education had to change the school board to allow neighborhood kids to go to other schools, as desired by the parents, there is a safe bet that it would cause significant difficulties for these institutions without actually solving the underlying problem.
Obviously, it’s time to stop all immigration from Muslim nations.
