Mixed societies

Dominique Vidal, deputy editor-in-chief of "Le Monde Diplomatique" (in an interview, available only in German with the Austrian daily "derStandard" of Nov 14, 2005) sees the riots in France as the result of 30 years of failed "banlieue"-policy (the suburbian areas holding 95 percent of Arab or black people, with a 50%-unemployment rate among youths) and not as a revolt steered by Islamist groups, as is maintained by right wing MPs.
Only a mixed society could deal with these post-colonialist & social problems - problems - in his opinion too big and too expensive for France to solve without the help of the EU.
