"Discrimination affects mainly young men between 25 and 34 years old: when they look for a flat or a job, want to enter a discotheque or face regular identity checks, which can easily lead them to a police station in case they have forgotten their identity papers, reminding them constantly of their foreign origin. Racism is obviously something that can be experienced daily by a North African immigrant’s male child in France."
"French people continue to address the descendants of North African immigrants as foreigners, like guests in our country, completely forgetting that it is also their country, because most of the immigrants’ children are born in France and have French nationality! It can be considered as a logical response to feel less attached to France and to turn to other cultural anchors (community, religion, etc.), when people refuse to consider you as part of the Nation, and if the “heirs” feel that there was no improvement between how France considered their parents or grand-parents and them."
