BoN feedback[edit]

I think the France entry is a bit misleading, because 'banlieux' are the product of racism and growing poverty, but have little to do with segregation. I feel that it take a very real phenomen (french racism), but misinterpret it, but I am unwilling to delete it entirely, because it have some truth. And I don't have a lot of idea to improve it.

If anything, all the shenanigans with islamic veil and prayer in the street exist because arabs aren't physically segregated from the rest of the french.

(that being said, gypsy are pretty close to be institutionaly segregated from what I have seen) — Unsigned, by: ‎ / talk / contribs

I've removed the France & UK sections. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:46, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?[edit]

I remember hearing about this book years ago, Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?. There's no denying that people of the same race and/or ethnicity hang around with each other more. I've never read the book — it could be trash for all I know — but it beings up an interesting perspective on self-segregation, nonetheless.—(((CheeseburgerFace))) Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 03:49, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Even if the book's good, that's an awful title. I do think it's interesting how that works, I remember learning a bit about it in introductory sociology. $₽ℛ₶₲₲₶₦₳ (₮₳£Q) (₡¤₦₮ℛ₶฿$) @ 04:04, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Well, it goes with the likes-attract hypothesis; the whole opposites attract saying is total bull in this hypothesis. I mean, it's just not race; people are more likely to be sexually attracted to people who are similar to them, physically and mentally. —(((CheeseburgerFace))) Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:16, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
