French riots

Senegalese blogger, SEMEtt l'etincelle noire comments the continued riots in the cities of France. He presents us with his thoughts on TOLERANCE: “Tolerance and indiference. indiference is a condition with no pain or pleasure without worry or desire/ indiference has nothing to do with tolerance/ tolerance is acceptance of difference/ one who is indiferent has no need to practice tolerance/ Maurois? wrote ‘the worst thing about old age is not the weakening of the body but the indiference of the soul'” (in French)



    Comment -immigration, means accepting cultural differences,
    By letting people immigrate you take responsibities for your action’s
    Affordable housing, if none then you need to look to your government to begin a vision of taking the existing building’s and helping theese people get settled and help in providing jobs. If you want people to immigrate into french heritage , You must open and show them the way!
    Were not the french at one time consider leader’s thinkers visionaries or do I have the wrong country!
