assimilation interrupted

via steve sailer:

Second generation Immigrants in Europe are de-assimilating

“The paper includes data on employment rate of first and second generation non-European immigrants in the 3 major European countries of France, Germany and U.K (the 4th largest European country – Italy – has few non-European immigrants).

“Looking carefully at the data in some of the tables, we can see that non-European immigrants in Europe are de-assimilating, with the second generation doing worse than the parents….

“For women, the second generation is slowly assimilating. Whereas the first generation works 35% less than natives, the second generation works 27% less than natives, an improvement of 8 percentage points. (the figures are the non-weighted, arithmetic mean of the 3 countries, below I have put data in each one).

“For men however the trend is the opposite. The second generation non-European immigrants are less likely to work than the previous generation! While the first generation work 10% less than natives, the second generation works 24% less, a deterioration of 14 percentage points….”

the children of muslim immigrants in the uk (and a lot of the non-european immigrants we’re talking about here are muslim immigrants) are also “de-assimilating” in other ways:

Young, British Muslims ‘getting more radical’

“A bleak picture of a generation of young British Muslims radicalised by anti-Western views and misplaced multicultural policies is shown in a survey published today.

“The study found disturbing evidence of young Muslims adopting more fundamentalist beliefs on key social and political issues than their parents or grandparents.

Forty per cent of Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24 said they would prefer to live under sharia law in Britain, a legal system based on the teachings of the Koran. The figure among over-55s, in contrast, was only 17 per cent….

Turning to issues of faith, 36 per cent of the young people questioned said they believed that a Muslim who converts to another religion should be ‘punished by death.’ Among the over 55s, the figure is only 19 per cent.

Three out of four young Muslims would prefer Muslim women to ‘choose to wear the veil or hijab,’ compared to only a quarter of over-55s….

what the h*ck is going on?

well, i suggest that part of the problem is that many muslims marry their cousins – 55% of pakistani marriages in the uk, for instance, are between cousins.

as i said in a previous post:

“if the problem were just that britain suddenly wound up with more retarded kids than it would’ve had otherwise, that wouldn’t be so bad. but the thing is, most brits – and definitely 110% of their politicians – are completely unaware of the larger problems that institutionalized cousin marriage brings: the tribalism; the nepotism; the ingrained antipathy towards anything remotely resembling democracy; islam and all its accoutrements.”

i suspect that muslim-immigrants-in-europe-2.0 are failing to assimilate the way that the multi-culti proponents thought they would ’cause muslim immigrants are inbreeding heavily and, therefore, becoming more and more tribalistic in their sentiments. they’re getting more radical in their ideological thinking — and practically they figure they may as well sponge off the state ’cause, h*ll, they’re not at all related to those stupid english|germans|swedes who finance the welfare state anyway.

family reunification|chain-migration patterns will just continue to exacerbate all these problems with assimilation.

  1. The West is now weak in spirit. It has diminishing relative economic strength and no cultural backing. The young Muslim males know this and want to take it down. Why respect that which does not respect itself?

    A people are admired when they are strong.

    There are many other reasons for this too. It’s a great way to invade, isn’t it? You actually get paid by the enemy state to live and plot within their country to take it down! I see why they think it’s Allah’s will.

  2. Probably some of the change comes from regression to the mean on numerous variables – such as degree of ethnocentricity/ethnonationalism, of religious fervor, of tempermental ‘Westernenss’, openness to novel experience, agreeableness, conscientiousness … not that those variables are all orthogonal to one another.

  3. A lot of it simply to do with density. When their parents arrived they lived as a minority among a white majority and had to fit in. Once the original population has been cleansed and they are living in an all muslim enclave they no longer need to conform to western values they need to conform to the muslim enclave.

    It’s a variation on converging to the mean where the original mean was based on a neighborhood of say 1/4 muslim and 3/4 western and the new mean is 3/4 muslim and 1/4 western (or less).

  4. islam is dangerous no matter how it is packaged. muslims do not assimilate into western society because islam is a theocracy and demands supremacy.

    the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

    5 key things about islam

    1. mythical beliefs – all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

    2. totalitarianism – islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

    3. violence – islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

    4. dishonesty – only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo’s peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

    5. misogyny – present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

    conclusions ??

    there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

    islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.
