Although many on the left claim anti-White racism does not exist, new polling shows nearly everyone in France disagrees with them.
The survey carried out for CNews by the CSA institute shows that 80 percent of French people answered “yes” to the question: “Is there in France, in certain communities, anti-White racism?”
Only 19 percent of French people said “no” to the question, while 1 percent could not decide.
France has been beset with a number of incidents recently that may be only reinforcing the idea that anti-White racism is alive and well in the country, even if Whites remain the dominant ethnic group for now. Just in September, the politician Boris Venon, who is White, resigned from his position as deputy mayor of Mureaux over claims that he had been subjected to “racist” attacks and intimidation.
He indicated that he had suffered “11 attacks” during his tenure, including “death threats” as well as “homophobic and racist insults.” He said that a resident told him that, “The White man should leave my city. We are at home here.”
Elite French universities are also accused of promoting anti-White ideologies, and even some of the country’s Christmas markets have begun promoting a “Blacks only” policy. In addition, certain famed artistic pieces such as “Swan Lake” have been banned at the Paris Opera over claims they promote “White supremacy.” All of these incidents and controversies, including the fact that many minority neighborhoods have become dangerous for White people and Jews, appear to be deeply influencing public sentiment on race relations.
The polling result comes after a wave of polls showing French people are increasingly concerned about the issue of race and changing demographics. For example, 60 percent of White people believe that the Great Replacement is occurring, a term that describes the demographic displacement of White Europeans by non-Europeans. Discussion of the Great Replacement in academic and media circles has entered the mainstream of French society, perhaps more so than any other Western European nation.
“This is in fact a fragmentation and yes, this risk does exist and in any case, I think the demographic change of Europe is extremely spectacular. The historical peoples in certain municipalities and regions are becoming a minority,” said influential French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut while discussing the Great Replacement on the Europe 1 channel this year. “A whole part of French people now live not in the suburbs, but beyond the suburbs, because they are no longer the cultural reference they used to be, because all the butchers are, for example, Halal.”
At the same time, polling also shows that the vast majority of French want reduced immigration levels, which may at least partly be a reflection of concerns over growing anti-White racism coupled with high immigration flows. It is also apparent that while Whites may be the majority ethnic group in France overall, that is not true everywhere in the country. In certain neighborhoods and cities, Whites are a minority, and this demographic transformation is only expected to accelerate over the coming years.
The CSA survey also broke down answers based on gender, and there was no clear difference between male and females in this regard, with 82 percent of men saying anti-White racism exists and 79 percent of females. The “yes” vote also won in nearly all age groups; however, those between 50 and 64 were most likely to say “yes” to the question (90 percent). The only age group where “yes” did not win was 18 to 24, where 51 percent said anti-White racism did not exist.
The polling did show political differences between respondents, with 100 percent of voters of the Reconquest party saying anti-White racism existed in France, while for the National Rally, it was 92 percent, and in the Republicans party, it was 89 percent.
Interestingly, supporters of the Renassance party of French President Emmanuel Macron, known for his support of liberal immigration policies, also showed that 83 percent believe anti-White racism exists, while in the left-wing La France Insoumise, only 39 percent agreed with this assertion.
