In the major four cities of The Netherlands which are all demographically close to 50 percent non-white population the established political parties are all trying to field strong non-white candidates. Also a host of new small ethnic and multicultural parties have sprung up. The try to become a force in local politics following the lead of the Fortuynist path perhaps.
Yesterday city hall The Hague had a conference where the candidates and the new parties presented themselves. The ethnic candidates tried to sell themselves to their public. However the event was solely attended by those professionally interested in politics. The ethnics were all ..... shopping in the main shopping areas.
A thought: perhaps this illustrates the motivation of the immigrants to come here. In order to improve themselves materially. Not in order to contribute to society. Or perhaps the political ideology and system do not agree with them?
