Young Maghrebis booed “La Marsellaise” during a football match

with 2 comments

The Croydonian has the information with some comments:

Guys – or rather gals – booing anthems, teams etc is all part of the rough and tumble of the game, especially in France, and none of this action is going to persuade youth of Mahgrebi origin to join in the anthem with gusto, or even keep schtumm for five minutes.

It’s truly difficult to deal with this problem, mainly because young Maghrebis are not in the mood to pay respect to their home country, even when most of them have been already born in France.

  1. I think that the authorities should expel the spectators who do these things, be Maghrebian or not. It is not possible to allow in a soccer stadium to there be madmen insulting to the national symbols.

  2. Of course, I know what you mean… The problem is that, if they would have been Spanish or German, they would have been considered as “racists“. If they are Maghrebis, they are called “unadapted socially“. You know, the importance of language…
