Journalists Patrol Ever-Changing Borders

Rotella, Sebastian
September 2006
Nieman Reports;Fall2006, Vol. 60 Issue 3, p6
The author reflects on his coverage of border issues in Paris, France. A son of a janitor complained about the riots between youth gangs and the police patrolling the boundaries between the cobblestones of middle-class France and the cement of hostile hinterlands like The Slab. Poor immigrants in European countries and in the U.S. have been facing indifference from the rich citizens. The author expresses that the societies in France find it hard to accept social integration. He saw how third-generation French citizens coming from Arab and black descents feel they are foreigners in the land where they were born.
