Racism in France is rising, according to a new poll. Some 30 percent of French people consider themselves racist, up from 35 percent a year ago. The national Consultative Commission of Human Rights, which commissioned the survey, said the rise indicated the lifting of a taboo against racism, The Associated Press reported. However, racist and anti-Semitic violence and threats fell to 974 in 2005 from 1,574 in 2004, the commission said.
