One in three French say they are racist: survey
by Ben McPartland
As many as 35 percent of French people admit to being "quite" or "a little" racist, an annual report for the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia, revealed this week, suggesting that intolerance in France was on the rise.
The annual report, by the government's National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) is carried out each year to gage levels of racism and intolerance in the country.
And the 2013 end of year report makes for sober reading once again, with levels of intolerance apparently on the rise for the fourth year running and the number of French people concerned by immigration (16 percent) at the highest level since 2002.
