valse commented on the word beurgeoisie
This French neologism was mentioned in an English-language article by Laila Lalami in the Nation (http://www.thenation.com/doc/20091214/lalami, 4th page 3rd paragraph). It's a term some French use to describe a recent "wave of young successful Muslims", since beur is a French slang term for a person of Arab origin.
