The argument for not recognising minorities is that using positive discimination divides up the population (e.g. African-Americans, British-Muslims) whereas the French government claims it likes to see everyone as simply French. Interesting idea but the practice doesn't seem to pan out, as recent events have shown.

9% of the overall population in France are unemployed.
30% of immigrants in France are unemployed.

4% of people with University degrees overall are unemployed in France.
25% of immigrants with degrees are unemployed in France.

France does not recognise ethnic minorities. This means that it does not recognise descrimination against ethnic minorities. This means that it doesn't do anything to combat descrimination against ethnic minority people who are looking for jobs.
