Watch: StereoTypes Paris - French African vs. African American?


What I found most interesting about this video is that the black people he talks to seem to be the most oblivious or tentative, seemingly denying that there’s any racism in France; and it’s not until he talks to a few white people, about halfway through the piece, that we really start to get into the hard truths about the country’s historically-based problems with regards to race, as most of them in the latter half of the video admit, very readily, that, yes, there most certainly is a problem in France.
