Le Monde has an interesting article on Parisian social housing policy which is quite indicative of how quaint official French thinking is on immigration-gentrification-segregation-inequality-cum-terrorism:

Following the terrorist attacks of January 2015, the President of the Republic, François Hollande, gathered several interministerial committees, announced a series of measures in to promote social cohesion, and managed to get these approved by Parliament. The goal was notably “to break up social apartheid in housing,” as explained then-prime minister Manuel Valls. Passed in January 2017, this law on equality and citizenship was the last major text of the five-year Socialist mandate.

Three years later, this project’s flagship housing measure is not being respected in Paris . . . The relevant “anti-ghetto” measures aim to increase the number of poor families in rich neighborhoods “so that poverty is not always concentrated in one area.” To achieve this, the law stipulates a clear rule: when social housing is granted in “regular” neighborhoods – those outside the “urban policy priority neighborhoods” [i.e. those inhabited by the poor/minorities] – social landlords must reserve at least 25% of housing to low-income households (€810 per month and per person as of 2019).

And yet, in Paris the mandatory quota of 25% is not at all being reached, even though it is a city run by the left, for which social integration is a major priority. Of the 23,332 housing units granted over three years outside of the poor neighborhoods, only 2,234 or less 10% have been granted to the lowest-income households. Worse: instead of progressing towards achieving the law’s objective, the rate is declining. From 11% in 2016, it fell to 10% in 2017 and less than 8% in 2018. . . .

“It’s true that we have to make efforts to reach the 25% target,” conceded Ian Brossat, the communist deputy-mayor in charge of housing on behalf of the mayor, Anne Hidalgo. . . .

By the way, the Socialist Anne Hidalgo’s close collaborators include not only communists but also the avowed Zionist Patrick Klugman. As vice-president of the SOS Racisme and president of the Union of Jewish Students of France (UEJF), Klugman has had a prominent role in the judicial harassment and persecution of French patriots and the promotion of multiculturalism in France, all the while being an ardent supporter of Jewish ethno-nationalism in Israel. Hidalgo’s team is quite representative of the deathly global elite ruling the West.

Official City of Paris Website: typical AWFL-Occupied-Government, including the notorious écriture inclusive (“inclusive writing”), which writes words in simultaneous masculine/feminine form, even though it is literally unpronounceable. This is an important symbolic and psychological marker: the willingness to make the French language uglier in order to have fictitious equality.

This is an important symbolic and psychological marker: the willingness to make the French language uglier in order to have fictitious equality.

Hidalgo is failing to integrate the poors because there isn’t enough cheap social housing in hyper-gentrified Paris proper. The idea is to massively distort the housing market by providing apartments costing €6-7 per square meter, whereas the average in Paris proper is €32 per square meter. Naturally, those middle class people who win the social-housing lottery by getting a dirty-cheap apartment in central Paris aren’t particularly keen to move out for the sake of the poors.

Incidentally, “[t]he law does not include any sanction” for failing to fulfil this particular unfunded mandate.

The article concludes:

City Hall is however pleased with one result on social integration. To prevent ghettos, the same 2017 law has fixed a second quantified goal: that in “urban policy priority neighborhoods” at least half of social housing must be granted to households with income greater than €800 per month. This objective has been reached and, even, surpassed.

So as the government is trying to shove poors into expensive areas, it is also trying to put middle class people into poor areas. Assuming enough middle class people move in, the area can then be properly gentrified and the poors removed, along with the social problems associated with them.

What a complicated and pointless game of whack-a-mole. Trying to simultaneously diversify and equalize a society is like trying to mop the floor before turning off the tap. I am sure you have better analogies, please share in the comments.

It turns out that allowing rich people from all over the world to buy up your central neighborhoods and allowing poor people from all over the world to cram into your suburbs leads to a lot of inequality. The efforts by the French State to force inequality and mixing without regard for cognitive and ethnic realities are obviously not bearing fruit.

Concentration of foreign voters concentrated in Paris (red more, green less).

Income segregation in Paris. Green: very rich. Blue: rich. Orange: poor. Red: very poor.

The fragmentation and stratification of French society along class and ethnic lines has become a widespread subject of discussion in France.

Parisian schools are also becoming more segregated along ethnic and class lines. The center-left magazine Le Nouvel Observateur has observed:

In all the somewhat mixed neighborhoods of the capital, the cultural and social melting-pot, of which Parisians are so proud, is being transformed – in the area of education – into a complex mosaic of white, black, or more or less mixed schools. In the majority-black schools, which are often socially and educationally underprivileged, left-wing white parents are faced with a difficult dilemma: to respect their principles by sending their kids to the local school or do what the vast majority of their peers now do by sending them to private schools.

In Paris, 35% of students go to private religious schools (mostly Catholic) and 72% of kids in these schools come from “very well-off” backgrounds, as against 3% of “underprivileged.” Nationally, only 20% of students go to private religious schools. Educational performance is highly unequal among Parisian schools, with 95% pass rates for the brevet (junior high school diploma) among private schools and only 50-75% among the public schools.

In Marseilles, France’s second-biggest city with almost 900,000 inhabitants, there is a similar situation. A recent study on “School Socio-Spatial Segregation and Ethnicization in Marseille” found that half of school students (mostly white) have opted out of the public school system, with its mostly black and Muslim pupils, in favor of private schools.

As usual, we don’t have good ethnic statistics for Paris or France in general. Here however is an ethnic snapshot of Brussels, a Belgian francophone city of some 1 million people, which though much smaller has a very similar situation in terms of ethnic segregation and inequality:

“Segregation is present in Brussels. Foreigners from North Africa [pink], Turkey [yellow] and EU15 (15 first members of the European Union [blue]) are living in opposite regions of the city.” (source)
“Segregation is present in Brussels. Foreigners from North Africa [pink], Turkey [yellow] and EU15 (15 first members of the European Union [blue]) are living in opposite regions of the city.” (source)

According to egalitarian theory, there should be a steady equalization of living conditions and gradual blending of the races into a homogeneous whole. What we see, however, is more in line with the hereditarians and ethnic realists expect. After all, race is cerebral cortex deep and, if possible, people like to live among people like themselves. We can expect that populations will continue to residentially cluster along ethnic lines and stratify according to their natural ability and inclinations, in a pattern we see in every single “global city” from Los Angeles to New York to London to . . . Paris.

Justifying French withdrawal from Algeria, President Charles de Gaulle argued that Europeans and Arabs would never gel into a harmonious whole: shake the bottle, the oil and vinegar inevitably separates. De Gaulle did not however bother to take the corollary precautionary measures of preventing Algerian, or wider African, mass migration to France.

The French State is also following the usual pattern of thinking the problems accompanying Non-Asian Minorities can be addressed by sprinkling them evenly among (white) middle and upper class neighborhoods. But what will happen when we run out of the latter? While every Western government is making some effort to brain-drain the rest of the world, no one seems to be taking the more far-sighted and public-spirited measure of actually increasing the supply of gifted and functional people (or, heaven forbid, decreasing the supply of dysfunctional and stupid people).

Perhaps, in time, France will adopt more aggressive and explicit forced racial integration policies, Singapore-style, instead of using thumb-in-the-air income-level proxies. “Brazilianization” would be the best-case scenario for such a hubristic plan of social engineering. I don’t think it’s impossible the Maghrebis, in particular, could become the functional equivalents of Mestizos. French offices are full of functional and secularized Arabs, from sassy homosexuals to alluring Arabesses who have abandoned their mothers’ headscarves in favor for a Jersey-Shore-type look. Time will tell if Islam will dissolve as Christianity has or, simply by existing, will conquer a nihilist Europe which has lost the will to live.

In our global cities, people have precious little in common. Members of different ethnic groups increasingly don’t share the same schools, the same neighborhoods the same television viewing, the same Internet use, the same jobs, or even the same language. The residents are united by nothing except their passport – a mere administrative formality – and the supermarkets *.

The French State’s latest efforts at first integration were in part prompted by Islamist terrorism. We can foresee that ethnic segregation and inequalities will persist. Frustration and anger will naturally stem from this, periodically resulting in the mass murders we saw at the Bataclan concert, on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, and many other places in France.

* Actually, I am being too generous: it is well known that the poors will go to cheaper supermarkets while the yuppies will go to overpriced niche organic boutiques. Still, most people will be happy to frequent Carrefour.

    This is certainly the pattern recently in the US and apparently in France as well, but so far as I know it is historically unprecedented and today limited to only to the WEIRD world and that only recently.

    Arab countries make no effort to sprinkle foreigners among their own number, quite the reverse. Ditto Israel, which does not commingle Palestinians among Israelis if it can help it (and it can). East Asian countries typically have foreigner ghettos, whether from policy or preference I don’t know, but they make no effort to sprinkle them elsewhere. Indeed, all through history, the usual has been ethnic quarters and benign segregation.

    This new and bizarre fetish for “sprinkling” ethnes together is unprecedented, ill advised, and is already proving very foolish.

    2 gargantuan problems stand in the way:

    1. A totally wrong policy when it comes to the mass produced housing (banlieus or whatever you call commieblocks)
    2. rentism

    Instead of wasting money on giving subsidized housing to scum, who will behave even worse because they don’t own the apartments but instead rent, do this:

    Give all that commieblock apartments to government/public sector workers – police officers, soldiers, firemen, clerks etc etc, like we used to do (we gave buildings to companies who would then give the apartments to their workers, but same thing). Bam, suddenly they’re nice places to live! The scum can go to lower-density housing, preferably scattered around so they can’t ghettoize.

    Another thing is to increase owner occupancy, significantly. I’m talking about 70%+.

    That should make it a bit better.

    Also, they significantly underestimate how long it takes to fully assimilate foreigners. I mean come on even the whites self-segregate by nationality and remain enclaves for a long time, let alone other more exotic peoples. It may take literal centuries, and very specific conditions for intermixing to happen

    “Arab countries make no effort to sprinkle foreigners among their own number, quite the reverse.”

    Have you not seen stats for the number of ex-pats living in Arab countries and foreign workers?
    Not difficult to find this info.

    Tax free money to be earned in the UAE which has attracted lots of people going for the lolly. Teaching is the one with the highest number.

    Schools in the UAE attract a large number of overseas teachers, with international schools, public schools and foreign language schools all employing a large number of expatriate staff.

    Major industries: petroleum and petrochemicals; fishing, aluminium, cement, fertilizer, commercial ship repair, construction materials, handicrafts, textiles attract workers.

    Owing to the increase of investment and job opportunities in Dubai, there is a considerable number of expatriate population contributing to the total population of UAE with the majority of the expatriates residing in Dubai. In 2013, the total population of UAE was recorded to be 9.2 million. Out of the 9.2 million, the expatriates contributed to around 7.8 million with the Emirati Nationals holding a population share of 1.4 million. With a vast demographic variation, there are a varied number of nationalities who form a part of the majority of the expats in UAE especially Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

    In the recent years, the European community is making a remarkable presence in the resident population scale of Dubai owing to the liberal and urban lifestyle of Dubai. But the majority of the expat population is still dominated by the South East Asian countries especially India and Pakistan. The group of these South Asian countries alone contributes to around 58% of the total population of UAE. The western population shares to around 8% of the overall population of the country.

    No I doubt anyone here actually thinks going to an unregulated market would fix integration problems.

    But do tell us exactly what this True Socialism(TM) entails and how it hasn’t been tried before. Hundreds of billions have been spent trying to turn third world people into first and I’m sure egalitarians of the West will happily line up to your solution should you provide one.

    The harsh reality was already summed in the article:
    According to egalitarian theory, there should be a steady equalization of living conditions and gradual blending of the races into a homogeneous whole. What we see, however, is more in line with the hereditarians and ethnic realists expect.

    I would add that egalitarian theory originally predicted that these areas would surpass homogeneous countries that didn’t embrace third world immigration.

    Now the egalitarians are scrambling from one mad theory to the next in a futile attempt to return to 1980s Paris.

    I don’t believe this is true. If anything the police have more experiences with reality while the typical French person is sheltered.

    I think a majority of Whites in every country believe that race is only superficial. This is most apparent in the various right and left solutions to what are perceived as fixable inequalities.

    In fact I would bet that the left has more racial realists than the right in its leadership. The leftist realists however views this reality as reason to overrun White countries with immigrants to solve the genetic problem.

    The conservatives in the US and EU have been completely duped into believing that race isn’t connected to culture. I would suggest spending time around conservatives if you doubt this. They really believe think that the Democrats cause racial inequalities by trying to fix them with the government programs. As with liberals they can’t explain the persistent poverty in 100% Black countries like Haiti or Liberia.

    Again, true. We hear ‘conservatives’ spouting this nonsense all the time.

    The problem is I think, that these public pronouncements are used to explain government policy while they are in fact a smokescreen. These attitudes don’t guide actual policy except perhaps at the lowest level.

    “Have you not seen stats for the number of ex-pats living in Arab countries and foreign workers?”

    I’ve not only “seen stats”, I’ve been such an expat myself.

    As I thought was clear in my comment, hosting foreign populations is a common, if dubious, practice. Deliberately sprinkling foreigners among your native population, however, is something that is new, strange, and even more dubious than bringing them in in the first place.

    Like everywhere but WEIRD world, foreigners in Gulf Arab countries live in particular districts, usually segregated by ethnicity. And Gulf Arabs are the outliers in hosting so many foreigners. The native Gulf Arab populations are tiny. Most Arabs live in large countries without all the foreign expats: e.g., Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Algeria, etc.

  20. @obwandiyag

    – Even without the added complication of race, the disproportionation of society has proven intractable (and here my agreement dries up 😛 ).
    The only ones to successfully tackle it was “Red” Vienna-between-the-wars; their theory was that to beat the slumlords they had to be outcompeted (but with standards) – to which end they levied a special tax on rental property and dedicated the proceeds to building their own … large self-contained units to anchor a community (long-term protected rent for those who behave) and serve as strongholds not only for the next election but the next revolution.

    I mean, seriously 😀

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx-Hof

    It is eerie to read the Socialist* Realism and savour the optimism and long-term thought that went into these designs (to the point of special little accommodations for invalids).
    By contrast urban renewal under Napoleon III strove to level the poor quartiers and make the next revolution impossible (teachable moment).
    Not until 1945 did Vienna get where Paris was in 1890:
    All rental property belongs to the Jew who cannot be taxed.

    French banlieues – like American “projects” – are chicken coops, way too Le Corbusier to foster anything but social dysfunction.
    The social engineering “set-aside” band-aid only makes everybody angry; when it includes race mixing, worse than that.

    * Of course not True Socialism ™ , just what the Germans used to call “socialism” – modernist, paternalistic, anti-semitic; something between Jakob Fugger and Henry Ford.
    I may ever-so-mildly note that in Augsburg and Vienna it worked while Fordlandia did not get off the ground because (apart from the Malayan competition) the local subspecies preferred drinking, gambling and whoring to working healthy.

    The only way to save (not only) Paris is to end welfare (fat chance).

    Very illustrative. The sheer, relentless hypocrisy is breathtaking in its shamelessness. But this is the history of CRIF and its quasi-front group LICRA as well.

    The occasional data I have seen is generally not as clear cut as, say, the difference between blacks and Mestizos in the United States. e.g. IIRC Turks had the worst educational performance. Our MENA Caucasoids seem quite prone to violence and dropping out of school. But they also seem quite inclined to small business, as in barbers, kebab shops, stores, and the like. Black-run businesses rare in comparison. In general, blacks in Europe strike me as more docile than those of the United States, possibly because of partly retaining traditional African family structures and more secure welfare.

    Your points are well taken. However, I have moved on average every 8 years. Unfortunately, the people I move away from seem to have the same idea and move as well. Right now I am considering a 100 acre wooded site on a seasonal road well away from a town of about 6500.

    Let me tell you about a friend of mine, a retired CEO of a large company. He retired to a nice area white suburban area. However, folks in the ghetto down the road, desperate to escape the conditions they themselves created started to move into his domain. While admittedly these were decent people anxious for a better life, visiting relatives were not so sophisticated. Soon…street parties, bottle throwing, cars vandalized and a gang rape in a lane between two houses that ran to a small parkette for kids etc etc. The Police got so tired of the complaints they stopped coming !

    He moved out when things started to get iffy. This guy was no fool and saw the writing on the wall long before the other liberals and do gooders in the area. BUT that nice area is now a slum occupied by the slum dwellers who escaped the previous slum.

    Another interesting story for you. Years ago I was going to a conference and got sidelined onto a rural road as a result of a traffic jam on the freeway. Coming to a hamlet NOT EVEN MARKED ON THE MAP I happened on a small general store with a bunch of African immigrants lounging outside. Fruit pickers perhaps ?? Not in the least. Again, years later by sheer coincidence I was chatting to a police officer and mentioned this strange experience when he told me that hamlet (still not marked on the map) was the scene of a major drug sweep with helicopters, canine units, SWAT and perps running through the woods, swamps and corn fields. Apparently the home boys, upset at all the CCTV cameras in the urban areas are moving out to the rural areas where such technology does not exist and the local police force consists of a 3-4 officers a half hour drive away. So…is escape to a peaceful place possible ?

    One friend of mine has sold everything and lives with a few clothes in a van. He can pick and choose where he wants to go and when. Perhaps this may be the ultimate answer. In the meantime we keep letting in more and more immigrants who do not share our cultural beliefs and have no desire to do so or to even assimilate.

    Where will this all end ? What cannot be cured must be endured but there comes a time when what cannot be endured must be cured.

    From my personal experiences…

    I lived in Detroit and had what I considered to be “good” neighbors. Mind you, not “good black” neighbors, but just good neighbors whose skin color did not matter. We helped each other, whenever possible, looked out for each other, and had friendly relations, shared family events, barbecues and other social events.

    The “troubles” started when my “good neighbors” invited their “ghetto rat” relatives to their parties.

    I restored an old car to near showroom condition and used to park it in my driveway. The “ghetto rats” decided that my car would be a good place to sit (on the hood).

    Asking them to remove themselves was met with responses of f#ck you” and other derogatory responses. Upon discussing the situation with my “good neighbor”, he pretty much told me that “boys will be boys” and to “suck it up” and “get over it”.

    My friendly relations with that neighbor cooled, as he was not willing to straighten out his “ghetto rat” relatives. Soon after, these “ghetto rats” found new avenues in which to ply their criminal “stock in trade”- breaking in to and ransacking houses–easy (white) targets…

    I soon moved to an all-white enclave after that, giving up on the city of Detroit, the criminality, harassment, and civic abuse, and have never been happier.

    “It’s why it’s perfectly legitimate for whites to not want the nice black couple to move into their neighborhood” is most certainly a legitimate concern…

    You know what, as time goes by I believe more and more people are coming to realize that Adolph was on the right track all along. There are a lot of Germans and their offspring living in South America who still idolize him. I remember one such formidable veteran of Russia whom I met in the 1980’s who told me that even after 35 years he still thought AH to be a great man. Of course at the time I thought he was a bit of a nut. I have never been to Germany but friends tell me it is a hell hole of immigrants, crime and trash filled areas and wishy washy politicians….you can hear a dozen different languages on the street…all conditions that would never have been tolerated back in the day. The same conditions have developed here in the western world. I often wonder what happened to the genes of those hard men from the past. I read of one English captain who back in the days of the sailing ships got a musket ball through his face which blew away a few teeth but continued to command and won the fight. He ultimately recovered (without a single drug or helping hand from any surgeon). These days a cut from a fall has poor Billy’s and his parents at the emergency ward waiting 13 hours for a plaster and lollipop. Our politicians and leaders these days are just a bunch of spineless bitches with no nuts. Things are going to come to a head and one of these days another Adolph is going to come along. These dudes from Africa and elsewhere will either have to go home or serve in work camps.

    I just got back from Cuba and returning just after midnight from a trip to Havana I was stunned to see women walking on the pitch black road and some female hotel workers hitching a ride because they had missed their bus. Reason ? Rape is punishable by death per Cuban law, that is provided the other prisoners who have wives, mothers, sisters dont finish you off in the prisons which are not pleasant places. Also attacking a woman on the street can earn you a triple thrashing from the public and then from the Police and then from other prisoners. Murder is also a capital offence. The Cuban police and justice system dont fuck around. Things got out of control under Batista and Castro came along to bring order to the place. The other Caribbean islands are plagued by crime. The same will happen in Europe and I fear in the US.

    The Wiggers who act up in our “first world” are surprisingly well behaved in Cuba ! We wonder why.

    Things have a way of balancing out and one day when these people become oh so unbearable we will return to the a system of government and a leader we thought were nutty at first glance.
