No Such Thing as ‘Race’, Say French Lawmakers

France24, May 17, 2013

French lawmakers approved a bill on Thursday to completely remove the word “race” from the country’s law books, but the initiative has been blasted as naïve and useless by right-wing opponents.

France’s National Assembly voted on Thursday to strike out the word “race” in any existing legislation that governs the country, even as members of the main opposition Union for Popular Movement labelled the move as overly idealistic.

“In eliminating the legal category of race, the Assembly has helped our country move forward on ideological and educational levels,” said the text’s author, MP Francois Asensi, a member of the far-left Left Front coalition that sponsored the bill.

The bill’s supporters argued that the term, which appears at least six times in France’s penal code and other legal texts, could be interpreted as a category of people.

“The word ‘race’ has no scientific validity and it has been the basis for racist ideologies,” the preamble to the bill declared.

Under the new law, France will not recognise the existence of any distinct race or races.


Members of the ruling Socialist Party had rallied behind the measure, claiming it was a first step in a larger reform to delete “race” from France’s constitution.

President François Hollande’s winning platform in the 2012 elections included a measure to omit the word from France’s most important legal document.

The term “race” appears just once in the French constitution. “[France] guarantees the equality of all citizens before the law, regardless of their origin, race or religion,” it states.


Opponents of the bill approved on Thursday decried that the ban would create a legal void between the constitution and legislation. They also pointed out that it did nothing to diminish racism or hate crimes.

“You can not change reality by simply changing the words… you’re wasting a lot of time and energy on illusions,” argued Lionel Tardy, an MP with the opposition UMP party, who voted against the change.

    There Is No Such Thing as ‘Race’, Say French Lawmakers

    Until the left wants to use it to their advantage

    • Manaphy

      If there is no such thing as race, then why are the “crimes” of white people always brought up when justifying diversity?

      • Dr. X

        Yeah… oddly enough, the people who claim that race does not exist are usually the same ones railing against “white privilege”…

    • Bill

      Yup. That would be it! No such thing as race UNTIL you want to affirmative action a minority, or give them set asides, or compel businesses to hire them, or use race as an excuse for behavior (ours, objecting to TNB), etc. So I wonder what exactly is destroying our cities such as Baltimore, Detroit, Atlanta, Birmingham, Philadelphia, and on and on? Aliens from another planet? Can we say THEY would be of another race, and a problem????? Probably not, if they were inherently Democratic or Big Gov potential voters.

    • Mr Potato

      If there’s no ‘race’ then there’s no ‘racism’…no?

      We’ll see…

      • OlderWoman

        If there’s no ‘race’ we should do away with the affirmative action hoax.

    • guest

      Right. We’ve all heard this so many times now. Race only exists when it benefits non-whites such as affirmative action and hate crime laws that protect them or when the leftists try to enforce their anti-white agenda. Other than that, there is no such thing as race.

      • white colored world

        No such as race? No single human race either? So there would be no such thing as racism or racist names for homo liberal slime to dish out to make all these pathetic white wimps feel guilty? There would be no reason for France to outlaw race if there is no race would there? The race law would be null and void. Self nullification. So would they use color instead of race since race is non existent? Would whites would be labeled colorists and practice colorism? That would give National Ass for the Advancement of Colored People new meaning. They can never say color doesn’t exist especially white according to Crayola. Let there be bright light white was the first color wasn’t it? White bright light colored the black nothingness?

    • Licurg Enescu
  • What do we have here?

    One side wants to be color blind, the other wants to recognize race in order to help out non-whites.

    What you don’t see is any advocacy on behalf of white people qua white people. Unless the FN is doing it and it’s just not mentioned here.

  • NYB

    The Socialist coalition currently holds power in France, but the National Front is still very strong.

    That the battle lines are being explicitly drawn around race is a sign of increased polarization between Marxism and Nationalism. The masks are coming off. Europe is becoming a powder keg.

    • hastings88

      Let us hope so.

    Where do these crazies come from?

    Mr. Arsenic needs to be dropped into a Parisian alley at midnight. Hey, in the middle of the night, everyone’s raceless.

    • sbuffalonative

      “In eliminating the legal category of race, the Assembly has helped our country move forward on ideological and educational levels,”

      In eliminating the legal category of race, the Assembly has ensured that native French will be driven to a minority and eliminated.

      • ms_anthro

        Yes, this is the real goal. If they can eliminate the concept of “race” as a legitimate biological and ethnic marker, then they can eliminate the idea that White Europeans have their own indigenous lands. There is no reason not to allow any Third World trash into France to loot its economy and destroy its incomparable cities if there is no such thing as indigenous French.

        When “nation” is made into a legal term instead of a distinctive racial identity, genocide and disenfranchisement are that much easier, and can’t be far behind.

        • David Ashton


        • Mr Potato

          You’re on the money Ms Anthro. No race, no ‘French’ people therefore no France to speak of.

        • hastings88

          I wonder if we need some dramatic losses (like all of France and Britain) for whites to wake up.

  • The__Bobster

    Here’s a shocker:

    From the New York Daily News:

    Start with this: Race is real. There are those who insist it is a fiction, that there are no group differences between human beings whatsoever. That’s absurd.

    Sure, there are hybrids and fuzzy cases, but people of African descent generally have darker skin and curlier hair. People of Caucasian descent generally have lighter skin and thinner hair. Asians have the epicanthic fold in their eyes

    Why is it utterly impossible that there be differences along the same lines, however slight, in the human brain?

    Okay, some people say. Even if we accept that race is real, and that there might be some differences, it’s “racist” to broach the topic of race and IQ. Wrong. That’s like being accused of infidelity and objecting “How mean!” instead of grappling with the substance of the accusation.

    • brengunn

      Whites actually have thicker hair. It’s the fact that black hair is so thin that makes it curl and go kinky. Asians have even thicker hair than whites, hence the absolute straightness of their hair.

      • Homo_Occidentalis

        Thickness and curliness are unrelated. Disulfide bonds on the hair strand cause curls.

      • bebe

        Plus Asian women always have that white part of their scalp showing and it is WIDE. What is with that anyway? I noticed this at work where there were a few Asian women….

      • ms_anthro

        Blonds have the most hairs per square inch of any other kind of phenotype, believe it or not. Black women wear weaves and wigs because their hair is terribly thin and their scalp shows after their hair is chemically straightened.

      • OlderWoman

        Black hair is very brittle.

  • Bergeron

    The ramifications of removing race from all institutional/governmental contexts here in the U.S. are interesting to consider, to say the least.

    • Sick of it

      Might be easier to get a job…

      • KevinPhillipsBong

        Or an education…

  • David Brims

    Why don’t the French just get rid of the words ”poverty and crime ” and then there will no poverty and crime in France !! Simple, isn’t it ?

    • GM (Australia)

      Better still, get rid of those individuals who are responsible for so much of the poverty & crime in France, that way you would get rid of most of the race problems in that country also.

  • MikeS

    I say we ship all of our illegal “raceless” people to France then, after a few months, ask them if they still hold that view.

  • JohnEngelman

    Does this mean there will be no such thing as affirmative action?

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    The Marxists can wish away race all they want. The truth, however, is self-evident:

    • MikeS

      That thing on the left looks like a mountain of elephant **** with a wig on top.

    • bigone4u

      Left side photoshopped? It can’t be real.

      • IstvanIN

        Australoids aren’t pretty.

        • GM (Australia)

          Go to any outback Aboriginal settlement and you will these people, that photo is very real. However as much as I agree with the important message that races are very different to each other I feel that this poster is cruel and obnoxious. At her own level and in her own society that Aboriginal woman will have more good qualities as a woman, wife and mother than that frivolous looking white model will ever have. She will live in poverty surrounded by filth, flies, stray dogs, drunken men and if she can stay away from drink herself she will protect her own dignity and the well being of her children, absolutely.

          • bebe

            Are you drunk or what? You have to be kidding. Yep, I am sure they would win the Mother Of The Year Award, right?

          • GM (Australia)

            For love and care to her children and within the limitations of her race & society she would win that award. (As long as she never touches alcohol)

          • ms_anthro

            I agree that the poster is cruel but your assumptions about the White model are strangely hostile. Why attack your racial sister in such an ugly way? She may very well be a wonderful mother, wife, and friend to many.

            There is a proven correlation between intelligence and physical attractiveness. Intelligence and good parenting are also correlated.

          • François

            Let us consider the example of Sharon Stone: she was the hottest Hollywood sex symbol of the early 1990’s… and a reported IQ of 154!

            You want beauty? Brains? Artistic talent? Whatever it is you want in your dream woman, our White sisters have it!

          • David Ashton

            I think you are chivalrous to say this.
            My trouble is I wouldn’t want one of these ladies, and I am not likely to get the other one.

          • GM (Australia)

            To David Ashton and others who replied to my comment: I am quite happy to be voted down on some issues or even get hostile replies, this is called good debate.

            Please note that I have lived in outback Australia and my wife’s family had and friends had extensive involvement with the now disbanded Aboriginal Mission System. The Aboriginal missions were regarded as being too paternalistic so by the 1980s Aboriginals were given welfare, access to alcohol and attempts have been made to get them educated and into meaningful employment. They also get extensive free healthcare including special programs for their own particular health issues. In general the results are a total disaster

            Now as for life in an outback town; Together with my family we lived in a modern air-conditioned home with a nice garden etc. We did our shopping at any of the well stocked shops where we lived. My firm provided me with an air-conditioned 4WD. Our kids did well at school and some went on to university. In other words every good that life in Australia has to offer.

            The local Aboriginals lived in either camps or welfare housing. With a few exceptions they were unable to either be educated or get into employment despite AA programs. They were and are constantly in trouble with the police and alcohol is a major problem. In one nearby town aboriginals went on a rampage,(Several times) wrecked everything in sight and burnt down the local supermarket. They hate white people. One little Aboriginal girl that we tried to encourage was good at sport and was doing well at school, she was then totally rejected by her family because she was too close to whitey.

            In other words races are all VERY different. I certainly have no time for those people who say that we are all the same and try and force diversity and multiculturalism onto us and then spend billions trying to get it to work. A family member rented his investment property to some aboriginal, the result was a total wreck, they pulled out ever fitting and fixture and set the place on fire. The taxpayer footed the bill. (Aboriginal welfare dept)

            I do support the aims of AMREN but will draw the line at cruel insults to any individual. Sorry if I seemed to be betraying a white sister but that is the way I felt when I saw that poster.

          • sophiepeaches

            Thank you for your information. It is very enlightening to those of us who are not from your area. I hate it when people denigrate others for the way they look. That is not of our doing. However, our actions bespeak what is in our hearts. I don’t think the very different races can live together, unfortunately. It just doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

          • ms_anthro

            I appreciate your unique perspective but it’s not necessary to denigrate the White woman on the poster (who no doubt didn’t choose to be on it any more than the australoid did) to make your point. You know as little about one particular woman as the other, and the knee-jerk assumption that the White Western woman must be a bad mother and wife is lifted straight out of the multicult narrative. Was your mother an inferior parent because she was White? What about your (hopefully) White wife?

            You say you draw the line at cruel insults to any individual, and then you defend your unmerited remarks about a woman you don’t know. It may seem like nitpicking but we Whites must defend ourselves and each other–yes, sometimes even against our own kind. You do our cause no favors by posting such hateful rubbish.

          • GM (Australia)

            Agree, I should not have made any adverse comment about the white woman in the poster, BUT, perhaps they should have chosen a more conservative white woman for the illustration. (And it was not hate, just an opinion)

            Yes, my wife is white, my grown up children are all good looking blue eyed & blond. Also I have seen far too many disastrous white / black, brown, Asian marriages over the years.

            Regarding judgments. Some time ago there was a link to images of “Wal Mart People” on this website. The result was a total insult to lots and lots of white people who for the most part had their mainly overweight posteriors photographed probably without their knowledge.

          • GM (Australia)

            Hello Ms Anthro, You asked me about my wife, Yes we have been married well over 40 years, we are great grandparents my wife is disabled but I do look after at home. What has this got to do with Amren? 1, When we married Australia was all white, the “White Australia” policy was still very much in force. Migrants came from the UK and other parts of Europe ONLY. 2,My wife, a former nurse worked at an adoption agency, interracial adoptions were a complete No No. 3, My wife totally shares my concerns about the recent influx of Muslims, Buddhists, Indians, Africans etc to this country. 4 My wife is totally devastated as to what is happening to the Aboriginal people in this country since the “Mission System” was phased out. (Please note, Aboriginals are in such small numbers that they are not really considered a threat to our society except for law and order issues and the billions that they cost the taxpayer)

          • ms_anthro

            I asked about your White wife to make the point that your comment about how the australoid woman would be a better wife and mother than the White model was unfounded. Your wife is White, and obviously a wonderful woman who did a good job of caring for you and your children. Why assume otherwise about the beautiful blond woman in the photo?

            Congratulations on finding each other and raising a beautiful White family.

          • They were and are constantly in trouble with the police and alcohol is a major problem.

          • GM (Australia)

            Yes, all very sad but this post is all about the French trying to deny that there is such a thing as different races. There are and we are all so different in so many ways, just what are the French trying to prove? Possibly just another bit of the anti-white rhetoric that regularly comes out of the EU. If you want to visit one of the towns I have mentioned go to Bourke in inland NSW.

          • Luis

            GM, the only Australoid I can recall, that ever did anything of note was tennis’ Evonne Goolagong. When she won Wimbledon, the media reacted like it was the Second Coming.

            She flamed out pretty quickly, as it turned out, and married some guy named Cawley. Which leads me to my next question:

            Was Evonne Goolagong only a half-aborigine, as her skin seemed rather light for an Australoid? Heck, every picture of every Australoid in my college anthropology texts, shows them with anthracite coal-dark skin.

          • GM (Australia)

            Hi Luis, I was not going to post any further on this post as I feel that I have already said too much but here is my answer to your question;

            It is unlikely that Ms Goolagong was a full blooded aboriginal, there was a lot of interbreeding with convicts, white pioneer settlers and Irish railway workers in the early days of this country, particularly in South East Australia. You will still find many full-bloods in remote inland areas and in northern Australia, they will look like your text book example.

            The whole of Australia will genuinely applaud persons such as Yvonne Goolagong and many others who do achieve. Cathy Freeman is another young Aboriginal woman that you may have heard of, she is an Olympic gold medalist and very popular.

      • libertarian 1234

        “…..if you could compare her to Susan Boyle or someone similar it might be a little fairer.”

        I think Boyle would offer quite a contrast herself. And the above is not that unusual a depiction of what Aborigine women look like.

        I’m pretty sure the intent of the person who made this example was to illustrate the extremes of racial types to more clearly reveal the obvious differences in races.

        But most any of the other women aren’t much better looking, if they are at all.

        As in this country when the media wants to flim flam people, they show “blacks” like Beyonce, etc who have a lot of white genes, so much so they look like whites with a tan, then with their usual attempts at trickery they explain that blacks are not the unattractive people claim them to be, when in fact Whoopi Goldberg is far closer to the norm.

        The press in Australia does the same with the scant few Aborigines who are a heavily racial mixture and they come up with photos of women they claim are “Aborigines,” but obviously they’re not.

        The above photo is not that far off from the average.

    The French government is determinded to destroy France. The US government to destroy America. The British government to destroy Britain. Even my little single digit IQ can see a pattern here.

    Cui bono? Who benefits? Answer that question and you begin to understand that it is about money and power. The white race, with its traditions of people power and independent thought, are an obstacle that must be removed, either physically through war, or psychologically through multiculturalism.

    Only when white people understand that the goal is to exterminate them–body, brain, genes– can defiance take root and flourish. We must arm ourselves with facts, infuse them with emotion, and proseltyze our breathren.

    “No Such Thing as ‘Race’, Say French Lawmakers”

    When Michael Savage identified liberalism as a mental disorder, he was right on the mark.

    And it is the French themselves, during one of their brief periods of sanity, who declared a bizarre view shared by two or more people at the same time was a “shared madness of many,” a “folie à plusieurs.”

    It was their way of explaining how large groups of people….like the Jonestown sect for example….could all be under the same illogical spell and willingly committed to embracing outlandish, delusional beliefs.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder that is also, a folie à plusieurs.

    Personally I think a folie à plusieurs is a genetic trait that is only found in people who are less evolved and are prone to going along with the herd even if the herd is heading toward a cliff.

    • IstvanIN

      These people are not liberals, I don’t know exactly what they are, but they are not liberals. Evil? Yes. Maoist? Yes. But liberals, nope, because they want to destroy modern, western, liberal society.

        They’re government cave-people, like their friends from the Middle East.

        It’s really no more complicated than that.

    • I have no doubts that American “color blind” lamestream conservatives would do the same thing, prohibit the official use of racial classifications or even the concept of race, if given half a chance.

      • Luis

        QD, especially if they can get away with blaming Democrats for the state of Detroit, instead of Bantus.

        Conservatives think that if only they can get Bantus, mestizos Orientals and Muslims to think “their way”, then everything would be just hunky-dory. Remember Lee Atwater’s “big tent” cannard? How the Republicans were going to get the aforementioned groups to vote Republican simply by inviting them under the “big tent”?

        Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, for a combination of reasons – a lousy economy, Carter was a political eunuch on the Iran hostage situation, and the feeling of malaise setting in. To this day, conservatives think Reagan was elected because of his popularity and likeability, and pine for another Reagan. They don’t understand that the California that elected Reagan governor twice scarcely resembles the C alifornia of today.

        Conservatives are as clueless on racial matters as liberals are.

        • They also don’t understand that 1980 was 33 years ago. Our “choice” in Presidential elections these days are between solving 1964’s problems and 1980’s problems. Fun fun fun.

    spoken like a true atheist evolutionist although the ancient hebrews differ clearly indicating the original single failed human race was cleansed off the earth and 3 new world order races created from the shem japheth and ham sons of noah who repopulated the earth in europe with the white caucasoid race that included arabs and jews, asia with the mongoloid red yellow race, and africa as the black negroid race, respectively. atheist archeologists for eons classified these 3 races as such so you can make up your own mind on their origin with 4000 yr old written creationism or the newer 135 year old opium evolutionism fantasy. if you believe you came from a one cell ameba in the ocean and crawled out on land and over 500 million years developed from a walking fish to a monkey to a human then thats your right unless you live in a muslim nation where that will get you beheaded so just make sure you live in a nation that gives religious and free speech freedom and muslims believe in the 3 races on earth. france could go muslim so this idiot better get be finding the exit soon.

    It’s unproven because there is no credible scientific evidence that races do not exist. On the contrary, decades of basic genetic research provided strong evidence that races do exist biologically. For instance, here is a link to one piece of such evidence posted at Stanford:

    It’s nonsense because it goes against about everything that we can see with a naked eye.

    Yet the deceitful lefties try to shift the burden of proof on their skeptics.

    When people say that their “A race is but a social construct (created by whites in order to discriminate against non-whites)” is nonsense, the lefties demand a proof that the said statement is nonsensical. Since a proof that would satisfy a devoted leftist is not easy to be produced, the lefties claim that the said thesis makes sense because they don’t see a proof that it’s nonsense.

    So, when you object to idiocies perpetuated by the left, don’t just call them nonsense.

    Call them unproven nonsense and let the mentally-deficient lefties to prove their claims.

    It would be tactically wise to put into parentheses, equivalents of the word “race” when
    that word is used–e.g., ‘evolved biological kinship network” etc. The term should not
    mean exactly the same thing to us that it did to our ancestors because we have knowledge
    that extends, refines, and clarifies it—without rendering it obsolete or repudiating it. This
    is a concession to realism and not to the loony lefties. As such, it strengths us and lets a lot
    of wind out of their sails.

    I hereby declare that gravity doesn’t exist.

      If you can suggest that gravity is adversely affecting minorities I am sure you will get a big taxpayer funded grant for further research!

      While we’re at it, can we also repeal the law of averages? That law’s really been annoying me for a long time.

      Maybe we can even get rid of Murphy’s Law, too. That’d be great.

  • GM (Australia)

    So the French are abolishing the word “Race” from their statute books. I assume then it will no longer be possible to study anthropology at a French University?

  • Romulus

    While I understand the forum for polite debate, I have no use for people who choose to live live in a weren’t fantasy world. No amount of kumbaya is going to prevent the catastrophe the world is heading towards with the now 7.2 billion humans residing on planet earth. The point at which homo sapiens have egregiously exceeded carrying capacity is beyond reconciliation. Those that would herald their own destruction because of some misplaced guilt or moral superiority will soon have a rude awakening. I only hope that some semblance of civilization will emerge unscathed.

    To say that race doesn’t exist is to deny evolution and its basic forces. It is idiotic and anti-science.

    And, what do we know about evolution: organisms branch off from earlier forms. And, as they branch off, they form demes, then races (which are often considered the same as subspecies) and then species.

    Evolution is a progression. Humans are at the race or subspecies level right now, and if some human groups are isolated from other human groups such that there is no gene transfer, and given mutations and the process of natural selection reacting to different selection pressures from other groups,it is most likely that in time they will become a separate species.

    We Whites were on that speciation path, until modern mass transportation started dropping millions of non-Whites into our gene pool. Now, those Whites who miscegenate will blend back in with the masses of dark humans, while those Whites who isolate themselves may become a new species, unable to breed with the older human forms.

    Thus is born the ubermensch–from out of White people who are the only people on the threshold of higher specieshood. This I believe.

    • hastings88

      Very optimistic. I wish I could share your belief. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that human beings will continue to progress in intelligence and civilization. We could just as easily fall. The universe is not anthropocentric.

      • Ralph

        “Human beings?” Lumpen human beings don’t concern me. I am concerned with Whites and presenting some information about how evolution works and how we can guide our own future evolution.

        The rest of mankind? I believe in non-interference. They are on their own path, and Whites should not mix our path with theirs.

  • Fr. John+

    Motto of the National Assembly, 2013.

    La verité, c’est nous.

    (Plus ça change, plus qu’il reste la meme.) The Jacobin State will never change.

    “The European governments have all institutionalized the principles of the French Jacobins, which were (1) regicide, (2) democracy, and (3) atheism. We won’t quibble over whether a nation killed their monarchs outright as in France or divested them of all power as in England; the end result was the same: the monarchy as a preserver of the Christian traditions of the nation was eliminated in every European country. And the democratic heresy, which states “all government, not being a democracy, is an usurpation,” was institutionalized throughout the European countries. The end result of the new anti-traditional, pro-democracy governments was atheistic governments.”

  • This is good news: now they can stop criminalizing people for “racist” speech and inciting “racial” hatred. It doesn’t exist after all…

    • Luis

      No, I don’t think they’ll get rid of “racial hate speech”. What they’ll probably do is repackage those laws into “terrorism-inciting speech”, or “terroristic speech”.

      • I’d think they’d be more original than that. It will be interesting to see how they grapple with that seeming contradiction though.

  • LaSantaHermandad

    No such thing as race?

    Here’s another horror story of a filthy, stinking Mau Mau with an extensive police record. He broke into the house of a Hofstra student and was about to force her into a car to go to an ATM for cash. Police arrived and you can read or listen to what happened next.
    Her name was Andrea Rebello. Lovely young girl.

  • Ciccio

    When looking at any French legislative proposals, bear in mind that this is the parliament that voted to change the racist capitalistic 60/60/24 way of counting time to a modern 10/10/10 decimal system.

  • If there is no such thing as race, why should there be any such nation as France?

    Perhaps we should give it back to the Germans.

    Sarcasm aside, what are our metricated amis going to do about this miserable state of affairs?

    As France becomes more non-White, the French people will discover a crude reality of how immigrant people who gain power will view them as “different” based on their ethnic/racial make-up. The govt. officials deny race but the immigrants identify our “race” immediately without debate.

  • valeofignorance

    No such thing as race? Then let’s see mass immigration, diversity programmes and racial assimilation in Native Indian Reservations… or is it only White people who “have no race”?

    Every corner of the lefties’ existence is dominated by race. Whom do they think they’re kidding.

    Why not declare rain to be dry, so that it can no longer wet us?
