France: Race bias claim at holiday venues

France: Race bias claim at holiday venues

Via The Connexion:

AN UNDERCOVER operation by an anti-racism group has exposed racism at some bars and clubs on campsites in the south of France.

SOS Racisme found two campsites and three clubs in the Alpes-Maritimes, out of a total of around 20 establishments tested, turned away ethnic minorities before allowing whites inside.

The organisation has named Le Camp du PylĂ´ne in Antibes Juan-les-Pins and Le Green Park at Cagnes-sur-mer as campsites which discriminated between the two young men of north African origin and two young white men sent to try and stay there.


While the north African men were turned away from clubs because they were "reserved for regulars", "too young" or they were "about to close", the white men were allowed in soon afterwards without any problems, said Mr Sopo.
