    Whites were taught to see Blacks as underachievers. Doing the heroic act of climbing the tower immediately remove his blackness and cast him in the realm of a white man. That's why he was afforded French citizenship. That's why they have tried so hard to gather all of our forefathers achievements and claim them as their own. They wish they could wave a white magic wand and let it be so. .

    The fact is that in France, it's against the law to officially categorize French citizens as white, black, arabs, Chinese... Even if they are of foreign origin or descents. In the US you can. In France, you cannot.

    Just for a joke, the comedian, who I greatly admire, will go to any lengths to defend himself when the Ambassador, rightly so, has put forth a legitimate objection on behalf of France and French people. This is the worst example of "whataboutism" that without criticism will just build further on existing prejudices and stereotypes. I am aware of the problems in the french society and the fact that France's colonial excesses continue till today in Africa, but if they genuinely make an effort to send out a message of conciliation and celebration for a sect of society usually in the news for wrong reasons, dont just go and puncture the attempt and then out of a misplaced sense of righteousness blatantly defend yourself.

    Its not up to Traveor to decide on their nationality or duality. Its the players. You cannot deny their nationality just because they are discriminsted in their country ( assuming ). By doing so, you are being judgemental. You can see him being red-faced. There is no shame in asking for forgiveness especially when you hurt a whole country with your comments

    I was born and raised in Marseille but my roots are from Haiti so even though at my school and neighborhood everyone referred to me as french not haitian/french. Now in midwest of the big U.S.A as soon as people here knows that my roots are from Haiti on a sudden they categorize as an islander or shithole. Trevor people will bow to you because of the amount of money you have but when you don't have the kind of money like you the treatment in the states and france are totally different.

    Trevor needs to call out all of them: Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, US, etc. They are only proud of Black people when they benefit from them.
