    It depends where ! In Paris there isn't a lot of racism :yep:
    Agree. But the fact that National Front enjoys so much support means that France is quite right wing, not necessarily racist

    Nope ! Because the thing is that in here we unfortunately had around 50 % of people who didn't vote, so the National Front clearly do not represents people's mind.
    But on the other hand , a lot of French have been so disappointed by Hollande , that they started to be interested by right-wing politics quite a lot , a bit more than usual
    It explains why National Front is so popular ^^

    And the country is not necessary right wing, it is quite mixed tbh :3

    Anyway

    Okay .. So because burqa is banned you think France is only right-wing..?
    Besides this law didn't change anything , as muslim women still wear what they want. The penalty for wearing burqa is 150€ (= £118) so people don't care anyway.

    £118 for every time you're stopped? That could add up, lol.

    And OP: where are you travelling to? I didn't read the thread.

    True, but tbh this is not a thing peope get caught easily. I mean sometimes the police sees a woman with a burqa and just let it go. Also, sometimes the police only gives a warning, so it is not that expensive I suppose

    You're back !!!!

    France is not racist ! But the North is known to be a bit conservative
    Also, those times we had a bit of hate toward muslims because of the terrorsim etc, but it ended really quickly tbh !
    France is a cosmopolitan country with a lot of races and people are very open-minded :yep:
