What do the French think of Asian people?

I love returning to the site to see what new information you have to offer us. It’s incredibly enlightening, even for a “halfie” (I’m half French, half Vietnamese) as myself! =P Second, I have a question for you, though I know this might be hard to answer without some generalities.

The Rise of Intermarriage. Rates, Characteristics Vary by Race and Gender By Wendy Wang Executive Summary This report analyzes the demographic and economic characteristics of newlyweds who marry spouses of a different race or ethnicity, and compares the traits of those who “marry out” with those who “marry in.”

Lesson of the story: both race and the continents are arbitrary social constructions. (On a related note, the Chechen Tsarnaev brothers are literally as “Caucasian” as it gets, yet in the United States, where Caucasian is still used as a synonym for white or European, commentators can’t figure out if they should be white or not.

L'Europe et l'immigration. Les lycéens interpellent les politiques. Lycéens certes, mais citoyens surtout: jeudi 7 novembre, à l'Assemblée nationale, des élèves de trois établissements de Seine-Saint-Denis ont démontré que la politique n'est pas réservée aux adultes.
