    I like what he said overall and I agree with a large proportion of it but I cringed a little when he said that an African becoming French (or European) is a great achievement? Do you really think being French / European is a goal Africans should be aspiring to? Surely us Africans should strive to make our continent successful from a socioeconomic perspective rather than pining to become European...

    Imagine if all French people just said that they don’t feel that referring to their roots makes them less French. The racist I France would have nothing against them if they aren’t even offended by it.

    The statement that black people in France are not French is racist, at least when a white person says that.

    I'm French. And I usually find you funny and think you're right. But here, I think you're out of your depth and have no idea what you're talking about.
    You say that those French black people, because they're black, should be allowed to claim their African roots. At one point did you think they were not allowed to ? The fact is, they don't want to because they're not African. They are FRENCH. Just French. They are born in France, they got educated in France, their families have been French for generations. They probably don't even know what country their great great great grand parents come from. It's not something anyone would even ask them anyway. Because it doesn't matter. It's private. I don't go asking French white people where their families are from ? Why should I care about French black people ?

    In the US, you call white people "Americans" and black people "African Americans". Therefore creating a group of second class citizens, despite the fact that their families ancestors have been in America for hundreds of years. They're still being denied to be equal to white people. This is inconceivable for us French. More than inconceivable, it is unconstitutional, as the concept of race has been forbidden in our constitution. I remember the first time I went to a doctor in the US being chocked to see that the file I had to fill up asked me if I was Caucasian, African, Asian, Hispanic. Why does it matter to treat my cold 😂 ?

    It's not the first time I've had this argument with non French people. I hope that one day the US abandons these racial non-sense and elevate themselves to the level of the European civilisation.

    For what happened to Özil, they can criticise him for a his poor performance (Just like his teammates who were purified), this is normal, but to give a reference to his ethinc and religious background is a shame... A disgrace... (especially after all the years he served his "receptor country")
