assimilation interrupted

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.
