Eugénie Bastié: "How anti-racism reinvented racism"


CHRONICLE - Journey to the center of French malaise, a book by sociologist Paul Yonnet published in 1993 which examined the SOS-Racism phenomenon, reappears. A prophetic and momentous essay.

June 15, 1985, Place de la Concorde.

Hundreds of thousands of young people came to attend the “friends party” organized by SOS-Racisme.

In this great “multiracial musical festival”, Marek Halter, Bernard-Henri Lévy, and Guy Bedos hold hands while Francis Cabrel and Jean-Jacques Goldman sing.

Harlem Désir proclaims his foolish catechism from the podium:

“For multicultural France, so that the logic of friendship always prevails over that of hatred and death.” What else?

35 years later, Concorde has given way to discord, multicultural utopia to territorial partition, the little yellow hand to the Islamic veil, the exaltation of black-white-beur to racialist obsession, and the heralds of SOS-Racisme never ceases to be devoured by their woke heirs.
