The immigrant population in the Netherlands has been named and defined under the categories of ethnic minorities and allochtonen. Although these categories are directly related to specific policies, these terms became very soon common social categories. The extended use of the term ethnic minority led to the construction of the immigrant as culturally and socio-economically different. The extended use of the term allochtoon led to identify the immigrant, also in the second and third generation, as "from another country" or eternal foreigner. The main result, as we will see in this article, is that immigrants, also after two or three generations, continue to be seen as "the others", the different, the foreigners or the non-indigenous.
