French recolonisation and what should be done

The means of protest are many for the Malian people to reach their goal. Occupations and sit-ins in the French embassy and other French institutions or businesses must be privileged to force the Malian puppet government to impose on its masters the Malian population’s demand of real freedom and sovereignty.

Farwell to the Socialist Party

Every slave plantation has its own uncle Tom, ready to sell his peers for the sake of his masters…. many of the few Blacks and Arabs who proudly clad themselves in the outfit of the Uncle Tom, serving the interests of the Socialist Party at the stake of their own peers, will finally have to find themselves a real job…

A week after the French presidential elections

Taking into consideration the people who, from day one, backed and supported the candidacy of Emmanuel Macron, his election as the eighth president of the fifth republic also means that the shameful story of French Imperialism and exploitation of the darker people in the world and within the Hexagon is still a long live story

Islam and Politics in France

The assimilationist campaigns from the colonial and imperialist eras have finally led to the permanent establishment of a French Muslim community whose presence and cultural expression is now perceived as challenging French cultural identity and values. In May last year, France was once again pointed out and condemned by the UN for its political stances that aim at curtailing the cultural expression of its ethnic minorities and particularly the Muslims. “What are the origins of the islamophobic positions held by French politicians and the mass media?” What are the political decisions that finally led to a form of “apartheid” opposing those who define themselves as “Charlies” against those who do not?” Why is the Burkini perceived as a provocation going against what some see as the French values?
Here are some interesting questions that this piece will have the opportunity to discuss.

The Adama Traore Case: Ten years after the Zyed and Bouna Case

And, as history teaches us that ethnocides are always accompanied by attempts to get rid of part of the population carrying the non-accepted cultural particularities, I now ask myself about the objective of all these police officers when assassinating young French Arabs and blacks, and disguising their murders.

The “Nice Attack” and a beheaded Catholic priest! But, who are the terrorists?

In order to get to a better understanding of what is going on, and where the Hexagon as a whole is heading to, I decide to apply a very scholastic method. “Who, why, what, Where, and when” is the methodological approach that I decide to adopt in order to clear up the opacity surrounding the different attacks that have been going on, on a regular basis in France for a bit more than a couple of years now.

The UK and the Brexit or when some Dumb people breaks it!

Let’s be clear and sincere on the issue. Most people who voted against the European Union did so mainly because of immigration. The quite well organised campaign presenting immigration in the United Kingdom as facilitated and empowered by the European Union was undoubtedly decisive in the choice most British made on the voting day.

Is Mama Africa’s cooking nice?

This is a man’s world, this is a woman’s world, but it would be nothing, nothing without any plant or animal. You see man made restaurants for us to dine in; we made alcohol to get us through stress and for pleasure. We made cloths to keep us warm; we made houses for shelter, like birds make their nest. It is really a man’s and a woman’s world, but it would be nothing, nothing without meat, dairy products and vegetables or grains.

What « Exhibit B » taught us in France

Unlike their White counterparts, Black artists and creators are scarcely – not to say ‘never’ – given the possibility to use public funds to tell the stories experienced by their people through slavery and colonization. In other words, the black man’s story still remains a Whiteman’s tale.

What the death of Remy Fraisse teaches us

Police violence, in France today, seems to be only perceived as a serious issue when the victims are whites; just like in 1939-1945, when the whole world suddenly became conscious of the devastating consequences of racial and racist theories after some white people had for the very first time experienced what they usually and commonly inflicted to black and brown people.

The Dieudonné affair seen from social networks

Hardly had we ever seen in France such unity between people of different social backgrounds and ethnic groups. In the same way the French victory in the Football world cup in 1998 had federated a multicolour France, the Franco-Cameroonian comic has succeeded in bringing together the black, Blanc, beurre France all united to support him against what is considered an unfair dictatorial system.

Does Immigration Mean ‘France Is Over’?

Equality is of course one of the virtues on which the French Republic was founded, yet critics of the Enlightenment philosophy behind the Revolution have long noticed a double standard: when equality is invoked, these critics note, it is understood that this is equality among equals.

Dieudonné & the Quenelle: « Will the 21st Century Molière succeed in bringing the governement to its knees? »

By attracting the attention of those whose duty it is to govern us and improve our living standards, Dieudonné does slide here the biggest quenelle ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBNAQMrNPro And I now ask myself: What if the clown, as he often calls himself, became the one at the origin of the down fall of this ineffective government?

Preserving piety and ethic at all costs while directing men, this is my life as a Muslim woman

It is a way for me to convey a more tolerant, positive and intelligent image of Islam than the one seen on TV. Through this, I hope that when a media design Islam as the cause of the stupidity of some people, my employees will respond. Deep inside, I hope that they will protest that what the media are spreading about Islam is a wrong.

Same-sex marriage and its implications for the respect of difference and diversity within society

Now, marriage is no longer the union of a couple, but of pairs too. Yes, semantically it makes a difference, at least in the French language. A couple is a combination of two different elements, (often masculine and feminine) and a pair a combination of two similar elements (pair of scissors, pair of trousers, and so on.)

Mali, the smelly French and the Strange bedfellows: MNLA’s on-again, off-again marriage with Ansar Dine

Is the internet really dangerous?

As a student from University located in Paris, I’m very often facing the bad temper/behaviour of people in the French underground for example. No one ever talks to anyone. No, it’s not a myth, people in big cities aren’t very nice! On the contrary, internet allows us to meet people that we would never meet otherwise

A new country is born: “Azawad” or the Result of many mistakes?

While the co-opted soldiers, at the top rank in the Malian military force were drinking their teas all day long, many soldiers from poor families with no connection or relation in the administrations were getting killed.

Tell Elle to end its practice of racist skin-whitening and apologize

I was pleased to read the following email this morning. The Asian community being much more organized than any of the different communities we have in France, I do believe that Asians in Britain could serve as showing us the way towards better awareness of the different forms of embedded racism. There is no doubt that their experience tells us how to combat racism.

France Wrestles With Its 2 Tiers of Higher Education

“But in the future the grandes écoles will also have to be more like the colleges of Oxford or Cambridge. Autonomous, but part of a federal structure with a university. The grandes écoles are famous for their teaching, but we need to find a way to help them be more productive with research.”
Precisely because most grandes écoles are so professionally oriented, their students conduct very little research, another factor that keeps even the best of them from showing up on international measures of performance

Top French Schools, Asked to Diversify, Fear for Standards

There is a serious question about how to measure diversity in a country where every citizen is presumed equal and there are no official statistics based on race, religion or ethnicity. A goal cannot be called a “quota,” which has an odor of the United States and affirmative action. Instead, there is the presumption here that poorer citizens will be more diverse, containing a much larger percentage of Muslims, blacks and second-generation immigrants.

Racial Tinge Stains World Cup Exit in France

PARIS — After France was booted from this year’s World Cup on Tuesday without winning a match — amid scenes of selfishness, indifference and indiscipline — the French news media piled on about the humiliation to the country and the misbehavior of its players. There were calls for a complete restructuring of the French team: its management, its method for choosing players, its training.
