MUSLIMS, OPRAH OVER-REPRESENTED IN FRENCH JAILS

Via Mike Jericho:

Iranian-French researcher Farhad Khosrokhavar said in his recently published book Islam in Prisons that Muslims make up some 70 percent of a total of 60,775 prisoners in France …

Sociologists and French Muslim leaders further hold racism and discrimination as the root cause of unemployment and crime rates among the Muslim minority.

They could on to something there. Ask Oprah about her recent shopping adventure in Paris:

Winfrey, 51, tried to enter the chi-chi handbag boutique but was blocked by staff who mistook her for a troublemaking North African.

Hermes has been “having a problem with North Africans lately,” according to The New York Post, and “Oprah didn’t have her hair done,” rendering her unrecognizable.
