FUNNY. WHERE I’M FROM THAT’S CALLED ‘CITIZEN’

“Very often you have people coming from the second generation of immigration, they don’t know their country of origin,” he said.

“They don’t have the same link with France as their parents who chose to come and work here. So, as Jacques Chirac, the President of the Republic said, there was some kind of a lack of identity.”

So…France’s PM thinks it sucks so bad to be French that even people born in France are looking for some alternate identity?

    But they’re not French, that’s the problem. France doesn’t have citizenship by birth on French soil. So their citizenship is still Turkish or Algerian or whatever, even though they’ve never been there. Not surprising they don’t feel a connection to French culture.

    … yes well, then by all means destroy said culture. I happen to think that if you behave like a rabid animal you should be put in a cage, that’s how the ASPCa would do it :)

    Wasn’t being an apologist for any bad behavior. Chirac is complaining they don’t feel a connection to French culture; there’s a reason for that. That’s all.
