as for the story, meh, *shrugs* i read a report a that said 56-60% of France's ethnic minorities felt discriminated against.
i think the leader of cran might have chosen a better "battle" then a beauty pageant, but were there's smoke..




Now seriously, that means that nearly half of the ethnics minorities don't feel discriminated. :shrugs:



there were slaves who fought on the side of the confederacy. :shrugs:


Yes, but France has, you know, human rights and stuff like that. :confused:

France isn't perfect, they have a long history of thinking they are superior to everyone. They have one of the largest popuations of North Africans in Europe and they just pretend they don't exist.

And the razor.

Seriously, just watch any French film. You will only see white people.

At least the British embrace diversity. At least they do on Doctor Who.

Disagree. Have you seen Taxi? or Asterix? or Amelie?

That's a religion, not a race. But I can assure that people have human rights in France. Everybody. Much more rights than they could dream about in their own countries.

Isn't one of the biggest criticisms of Amelie is that it did not portray non-white people?

And Taxi? Yeah, that has to be about Indian cap drivers :lol:

race and religion go hand and hand; and is silly to say "if they don't like the way they are treated here, they can go back to their own countries." that is what you're saying in the part i bolded.

There are no blacks but there are North Africans, which is the biggest ethnic minority in France by far. Jamel Debbouze is one of the actors and he is moroccan. Also there are other people from Argelia too.

Taxi is an awesome film, you ignorant! :lol: The main characther is from Algeria too.

If they are racist because there are no other races in their films, then Spain is racist too. :shrugs:

The North Africans is what I am referring to. I guess I didn't notice them. How racist of me I guess in France North African is white enough.

An Algerian cab driver? That is racist!

Spain is racist towards Romanians.

Race and religion don't go hand annd hand at all. I mean, a lot of Africans are catholics, so are the Frenchs. And France is a completely secular country, religion has nothing to do there.

"if they don't like the way they are treated here, they can go back to their own countries." No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that French Constitution, and the Treats of the European Union, protect those immigrants. They have the right to education, to PUBLIC healthcare, to get welfare, etc. and those laws try to protect them against racism. But you can't pretend that everybody likes you, and moreover, in some cases they don't wanna adapt to the new country and its customs,which causes problems. :shrugs:

Yes, you didn't notice but there are North Africans in French films. Plenty of them in fact! Watch Taxi and you'll see that is not racist at all. ;)

One of the best films of 2011:

Inttouchables

The movie tells the story of a aristocrat man who becomes quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, he hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker.

Although the senagalese caretaker was from the projects, it's in no way rascist. The movie is based on a true story as well.
So not a rascist movie, but a very sweet and positive one.

1 - Taxi is an awesome film (and I don't mean the pile of crap with the otherwise awesome Queen Latifah)

2 - Imagine the outcry is someone described a black person as, say, "black as coal".

"I actually had one cute hat, and it blew off at the CVS parking lot. And this whole car full of black kids ran over it, for no reason. AND THEY SAW IT! THEY SAW IT!"
