Excerpts on French anti-racism

racism_and_racism_in_europe1Given recent concerns with racism in France following the Charlie Hebdo attacks on January 2015, I revisited some of the segments on anti-racism in France from my 2004 book, Racism and Anti-racism in Europe. The contemporary analyses of French approaches to race would have done well to revisit the histories I examined in that book based on research carried out in 1999-2000. These segments are not the totality of everything related to France in that book, but I hope they will give readers the impetus to take a look at the book’s argument again with fresh eyes.
