For months, in Petit-Bard in Montpellier, groups of brown people, mostly north African mothers, have been staging various types of protest, from blocking traffic to occupying schools. Their grievance: not enough white people. They are demanding more "mixité" [diversity] in the schools where, generally, the only people of European ancestry are the teachers.

At 10 years old, the girl dreams of enriching herself with cultural differences. "Here, it's like we're in a ghetto. I already know all the children because we grow up together. I'd really like to meet people who are different from me, white people, rather than Arabs and even more Arabs. I would like to feel like I was in France," explains the little girl.
