I’ll say two things. 1.) All Francophobia aside, I really hope those guys get a handle on this for the sake of western civilization.
2.) Most Muslim immigrants I’ve seen either own some small market or store with like a million dollars stashed away, or is going to law school/med school/grad school. They may be cranky and hate Israel, but they are not going to torch cars. However, blacks who have been in America for two centuries will riot much more violently than the North Africans (the Rodney King riots were much shorter but much more violent…so far). Probably has to do with government subsidized housing, I’m thinking.

|this is indeed just the beginning. I’m torn, though.
I can’t decide whether to feel sorry for the French for having an unruly populace, and hence feel a little proud that even with our problems we don’t let these sort of things get so bad.
OR…do I say to hell with France and it’s tyrannical UN buddies for daring to pose as authorities on human rights.

|I wouldn’t be so quick to pat ourselves on the back…the Rodney King riots were just over 10 years ago. I will say our immigration problems are not nearly as bad as those in the EU, however. Check out “Songs from the Second Floor”
a movie recommended by none other than Rothell, which gives clues as to why European youths are so depressed.
