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.

The French houseslaves!

Fighting for their rights in the West, but closing their eyes on the suffering inflicted on the Africans by their white masters, for the sake of all their privileges, is precisely what makes most French black activists of the 21st century houseslaves.

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 “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.

The Euro Cup and the English

if the Fifa type of war could not take place somewhere else other than in a stadium. No need to mention that many white supremacists English hooligans found out that the myth they so much believe in and which make them feel superior to any other nation has no real foundations.

I AND THOU

Martin Luther King Jr had a dream; Ali made it a reality… he lost his world heavyweight title and won the whole world with his belief, charisma, and policy…

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.

The African Mohammed Alis

In a world where we seek to dominate each other, exploit one another, and where there is the desire to better oneself by any means, it is of little surprise that most of our favourite sports originate from these basics fundamentals of life.

2005-2015: Je suis

In his book “Je suis”, Bakary puts the blame on the institutions; but not only. What makes his message quite unusual is obviously that the responsibility and ineffectiveness of the people from the suburbs and deprived districts of the Paris region, is not spared …

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.

Unlike most black French people, who spend most of their time listening to music, dancing, getting smartly dressed, watching video clips or reading fashion magazines and bling, bling; the black people gathered at the Read meeting were all interested in finding out the secrets hidden in all books.

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?

… before he was ousted from power, the last president was sending the young soldiers, totally empty handed and with no weapon, to the front, to fight against the secessionist Tuaregs. 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.

Is this the end of Sarkozy?

As the French presidential elections near, Sylvestre Jaffard charts the declining fortunes of Nicolas Sarkozy and looks at the dangers from the right, with the fascist Marine Le Pen buoyed by the polls, and the opportunities for the left to challenge neoliberalism and austerity

Story of a fruit of Immigration

The process of immigration is sometimes more complex than what one might think…. .
Even if most people think, when looking at me, that I was born from immigrant parents who left China to come straight to France, I am in reality the fruit of a more complex movement of immigration.

Is capitalism moral?

Yet, lots of things have changed since the 19th century. Indeed, living conditions and in particular the workers’ living conditions were not comparable to those of these days.

Study abroad, are you ready?

Most people consider getting college admission the toughest step when planning to study abroad, but as far as I am concerned, the most difficult and important part is to understand the foreign cultural norms in order to get involved within the local society

Why I may stop being an activist!

just like many others before them had sold themselves for the sake of money and notoriety that would finally ruin their art, claim and originality; most activists I then regarded as brothers and sisters, progressively became eager for fame.

People who do things!

Abbas Nokhasteh is a British citizen whose interest focuses on promoting and creating bridges between different practitioners, activists and artists. Through his organisation Openvizor.com, Abbas also connects together different organisations and associations around the world.

But, what the hell is going on in Ivory Coast?

In the case of Ivory Coast, the lack of knowledge of their own historical past also wrongly led many Ivoirians to think that their country, just like France pretends itself to be, was monocultural, monoethnic, and had above all as the only religious identity and faith Christianity.

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

We are all Romanis!

Have the ethnic minorities in France become so assimilated that they have adopted some form of racism and indifference that used to be in the past proper to part of the French white community?

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.

Rap is dead and Spoken Word is born

I will never forget those days back in the early eighties when Sydney, one of the rare and only black TV presenters who appeared on the green screen on Saturday afternoons, used to put some funky atmosphere in every household.
