According to Christian Tybring-gjedde shows a new survey of the origin of the newborns in Oslo, that city soon is totally segregated. To discuss the shared capital is both okay and important. But it is not acceptable when the discussion is based on an idea, that some children who are born in Norway simply can not be completely Norwegian.Columnist Anna Kvam

Let us first look a bit on what statistics, that the progress party has ordered, showing the purely superficial. Firstly, the proportion among Oslo's newborns who have an immigrant background increased a lot since tusenårsskifte. The increase is 18 percentage points. In the various districts of the benefits of the increase itself.
Tybring-gjedde is particularly keen to point out the increase in the outer boroughs. In Søndre Nordstrand and Alna, for example, is the proportion of newborns with an immigrant background up from, respectively, 37 and 42 per cent in 2000 to, respectively, 61 and 59 per cent in 2017. This is the numbers, which, according to him, gives reason for both
1) the fear of a that Oslo shall be a totally segregated city, and
2) that we should stop the resettlement of refugees in Oslo
That the progress party in Oslo innvandringsskeptiske is not something new. It is also not something new that they are worried about a dichotomy of the capital. What is new is that they, in this national newspaper, presenting a new study through a representative that connects the premises for the data collection to an idea that grandchildren of immigrants are not entirely Norwegian.
The second problem is that Tybring-gjedde choose to look away from the findings of the statistics that can't support it skremmebildet he will draw. I shall go more deeply into each of these two problems.Erna is dumb as oysters Columnist
For the first is presented in the case, and of the Tybring-gjedde, who almost generally that the children of Norwegian-born with immigrant backgrounds be counted. As far as me acquaintance it is the first time STATISTICS norway makes own investigation about the Oslo-demographics where the grandson of four immigrants will be counted as persons with an immigrant background.
Well, it may be that there are good reasons to examine demografien also for this group. It is not my business to attack their STATISTICS. But it is okay to point out that it is relatively new that the man makes population surveys it this way, for it is clearly reflected in the survey. SSB-the researcher who states in the article says it straight out even.
At first glance then look it namely undeniable as innvandrerandelen in the different London boroughs have shot straight up since 2000. What in reality has happened is that norwegians with immigrant parents themselves have begun to have children.
To accept that it is driven demographic research on this group is not the same as to devour Tybring-Gjeddes idea raw: that grandchildren of immigrants are not entirely Norwegian. Dagbladet makes it unfortunately difficult to separate the two starting points from each other.Not even the holocaust was enough to overcome the anti-semitism Debate
For Tybring-gjedde use namely the statistics in a way that makes it natural to conclude that he believes you simply can't drop the immigrant-the label even if your family has live in the Uk on the third generation. For he says: "Continues this development, we end with a completely segregated city with gettoliknende conditions. Increases innvandringsbefolkningen further in these areas, comes even more ethnic norwegians to move out. We already have schools almost without children with Norwegian background."
Tybring-gjedde takes the freedom to declare that the grandchildren of the immigrants also are immigrants, that they are contrary to their nabolags "Norwegian".
the Media as Performing a have already picked up the terminology. They now use the headlines about the immigrants taking over Oslo, based on a survey where there are children and grandchildren of immigrants, that is first and foremost to talk about. It is a far leap from collecting data on children of Norwegian-born with immigrant backgrounds, to include them in a group as opposed to the "ethnic Norwegian".
But it does Tybring-gjedde and Performing without winking. And with it will be blown a hundefløyte we have become too used to that Tybring-gjedde makes use of. If you are still a other than the Norwegian in the neighborhood, when both you and your parents are born in Norway, what then remains of the differences? It's all suddenly about the skin color. If not Tybring-gjedde has drawn this conclusion even he should at least be made aware of it.Sanner: A multicultural society enriches us Debate
unfortunately, It is not just the trick to include grandchildren of the immigrants, which makes that the representative from the progress party can blow up a skremmebilde. He also chooses to leave out another, in my view, the central findings in the statistics: the proportion of newborns with an immigrant background increases in each of the outer boroughs. Also those on the west side.
Both Ullern, Vestre Aker and Nordre Aker has an increase among the proportion of newborns who have an immigrant background. This applies both when it is estimated in total and when one sorts out the group of the background with non-western immigration.
This discovery shows that Oslo is not a totally segregated city. Oslo is a city where immigrants, children of immigrants and grandchildren of immigrants move up on the social ladder, what we on the politikerspråket call for social mobility.
That the selection of persons with "immigrant background" is a different than what we normally expect, or that individuals with an immigrant background turn roots on the west side, does not mean that we should stop researching on bosettingsmønstre and befolkningssammensetning in Oslo.
I argue neither for that we should not take seriously that the city in many ways is shared. It is lærerflukt from he lived for, the life expectancy in østbydelene is much lower than in the west. There is a problem when very many children in the same school district beginning in the high-class without having to speak good English.
But the way we attack these issues is relevant. We must not be blind to the very important nuances of the ordbruken our, in our way to mention statistics. There is a difference between examining how a generation of Norwegian children of the grandparents who immigrated stuff in the community, and to ruthless call also these "immigrants". That Tybring-gjedde get to do this without critical opposition in a long news article, is unfortunate.The forbidden word Comment
