Sad that the racism infused semantics when referring to someone with hyphenated ethnicities is lost on Trevor. Indeed French society is more egalitarian in its inner workings partly because of everyone being just French not French vs Alien-French. It's astonishing that Trevor doesn't see this glaring hypocrisy is his position.

I understand that poeple could be hurt by this controvery and i agree with a part of what you are saying, however there is a big difference between the way french and american are seeing this kind of things. Let me explain, for exemple in france even using the word "race" (which is also "race") because our only race is the race of human (and also because this word was created for distinguish animals when they were sold, this word doesn't have a scientific backround). It is quite choking to even hear this word (in french), if you use it it means that you think there is different race in the humankind which (for france) there isn't (again you have to considere that the whole meaning and definitions of those words are slitly different when you swich of language). Due to the nazi ideology impact on europe, the effect of the 2nd WW and later the decolonisation, France had to really work to reunit it's country. It is really a touchy subject which became even more touchy with the recent problems with the immigration. the ambassador shouldn't had send you this letter. Yet it is clear that you doesn't know that a the majority of the population in france is from immigration (not colonialism), the joke was innocent but your respons wasn't. I hear a lot of insult on my country from the United State. I am use to it, but if there is a thing that i am proud of is the fact that we are clearly ahead of the united state when it comes to racism. We are not perfect but it is the kind of place where you can forget your skin color and just be you, at least in most places and with 90% of the peoples. I think we just have a different way to deal with the problem.

Being a big fan of Trevor, I have to tell that Trevor got into a wrong argument here... Now he is justifying his sayings... There was no need bring racism into this situation... FYI this joke was not first said by Trevor but it’s been circling around the Internet since the world cup began but these petty jokes don’t suit THE TREVOR NOAH... He’s a man of classy satires... N brother you are very talented n still young... Try to admit your mistakes sometimes... God bless... Love from India 🇮🇳

But what you're spewing is completely the opposite and even promoting racism ! If someone who is viewed as your countryman celebrates another country's vicotry just because of culture ? HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU FEEL ? do white people of france celebrate if sweden wins which is whiter than them ? No !!

Trevors over simplification of racism doesn’t manage to change a thing, there will always be people in France that will not accept those black players had French. This is not to say every white person in France is a racist, the same applies to all European countries, indeed it happened in Canada when Johnson won the sprint gold then got disqualified for drug taking. The media proclaimed him a Canadian citizen when he won, then the same media referred to him an immigrant as soon as he was disqualified.

Most of what Trevor Noah says is gold but he has shown a whole lot of ignorance about French identity politics in this one. The ambassador wasn't suggesting that these men aren't ethnically African but rather emphasising that they are French and pointing out that this rhetoric is the same used by racist groups in French (albeit with different intentions). Clearly Trevor has never studied the difference between ethnic nationalism vs civic nationalism either. Civic nationalism being something that France and the US have in common - and something that is celebrated in France in much the same way it is in the U.S. Also, a quick review of racist incidents in France vs racist incidents in the U.S will convince anyone that the U.S is hardly one to judge France in relation to racism.

So what your saying is that because they are from african descendant and have african blood, they can't be just french, do they need to be african-french ? Why do you have to make the difference between the 2 ? Are french with english/german/spanish or scandinavian origins allowed to be just french but not africans ? Im actually french with african parents, i was born in France and they were born in africa but i don't consider myself less french - and its because i can't call myself african when i didn't grew up there, i didn't experience what it is to be from there. I grew up in france and even though i picked up some culture from my parents country, most of what i know and am is from here in france. You say why can't they be both - well i feel like its disrespectful from me, who only know about france and very little of my parents country to say that im from this country ! Now if you say im not french either well i don't know who is because in my eyes i can't get more french - My country has been under french regime for almost a century, my country has fought for france in the biggest wars in human kind history, i was born, fed and educated in france soil, the country history that i know the most about is french history, most of my family are in france, my friends are in france, im working and paying taxes in france, i voted for multiple presidents and protested against others - what else do you need from me to be called french ? Im not trying to deny where i come from but it would be hypocritical to say that im from there ! They never said that you need to erase everything in order to be french, you understood it like that, that your interpretation ! African-american never set foot in africa in their lives - their original names and culture have been literally stripped from them - they don't even know where from africa do they come from or even which countries are in africa- they only know america and nothing but america but even with all that they are STILL called african-american ! Even with all that, they are not americans like americans with irish or english or any caucasian origin - they are a different kind of american even though they are the one who sacrificed the most for their country - they are still treated differently ! I know where you are coming from when you are trying to defend african heritage since you are from south-africa but your situation is not the same as african-american who were born in america ! You can't compare yourself with them or me who have been born in those country and lived there all our lives !

Most of us who were born in a different country were still raised by parents of that decent who were born there, cook the food they know, played and danced to the music from their country and took me there to visit, partake in the many cultural events and spoke the language from that country so yes my culture is still there and I’m proud and thankful. It’s in your family history...doesn’t make you less French but you have another side of you which doesn’t really make you less of that either. Is it that you didn’t have the privilege of learning about that side of you...about the past of your parents/ grandparents or are you just not interested? What is your culture as just American? I always thought that the culture of Americans were taken from the culture of those who came before them but if it’s different for you please let me know.

What do the players define themselves as? I think the UK is the same as France in that you can be any ethnicity but be British, being British doesn't deny other identification, but separating that out denies the mix as only other. I think it's a difference cultural understanding of labels. I wouldn't call black people in Britain black British. Travelling abroad with American friends was the first time ever I wad called white girl and heard others using black girl in a friendly way. Bit like gender politics. You can be male or female or both or neither, make your own label. You don't tend to go around ascribing others calling them man man, or woman man or woman woman.

I am afraid, Travor sounds like Nazi, a racist. I explain why. A Racist judges people on their look, separating people, excluding and even hunting them. The racist are trying to use science or the history as an argument, to separate people into groups. While they are doing this, they stop at the point of the argumentation, what suits their racist's interests. But if you go the full argument, you will find, that it's actually an argument against the racism. For example, Trevor uses the origin of people to decide who is african who is not. He decides to stop on the colonial history of France, he excludes a welcoming culture after the world war 2. However, if we follow the argumentation of origin to the end, we will find out, that the evidence are strongly suggesting that all people originated in Africa. So it basically means, that every people on earth is an African. However it's not the end. If you follow the origin beyond the origin of apes, you will find no Africa at all, it would be pangaea instead. We could go even further in history, but the results won't change. And the results are humanity has no subclasses like races; Africa, Europe, America are just pieces of earth, where people can live. However, people are rudel animals, so they need groups. That's why Trevor identifies himself as a part of group called American and or African. But remember, you are an intelligent being. Creating a group for you, means you are excluding others against their will. I see Trevor as a fighter against racism. But he forgets, how easy can you become a racist, if you don't judge people on their individual behavior and deeds. In simple words, the world cup wasn't won by Africans or even by French but by the individuals, who happens to have a darker skin and citizenship of France. A great example is Usain Bolt, I remember him by his name as great sportsman. And Trevor I remember as comedian, who fights against the racism, but happens to do the same mistake. Sadly.

+Jai Li do not mix color with culture. As i said, there are "african" people who was not in africa or had something to do with it culure. the same goes for european ethnicity, a lot of them was born into a different culture. And to answer to your question. I don't appologize or avoid the fact of slavary in the history. But it is past, and there are many other ways to become a citizen of any country, then just to refer to the slave history. People are grown in second and third generation in their coutry and call themselves proudly their citizens. Would you love it, if somebody called you and refered to you based on your physical apperence or the history of your ancostrors. You i do not descreminate people by anything. I am child of two coutries and two nationalities, i have luck to work and have friends with represntants of almost any coutry and nationality. And i can say, we are all alike. There is no "african" or "european", we are all individuals share similarities. As long you are refering to people appereance you are ignoring them as individuals. You discriminate people of this group, you refer to, or the people, who does not have the same appearence. If you say "white" people are the best, you are discreminating all other people. It goes even further, if you say, your nationality is the gratest. So you are saying, that every other nationality is not as good as yours. And last thing to history maybe. Saddly, every country has it's dark past. There were or is or will be some kind of monster, who kills and enslaves people in huge numbers. Important is, that we learn from that, remember it and try to prevent it from repeating. Be smarter than our ancestors. There are "Africans" only if they live in africa and it's culture, because you originated in africa too, but you don't call yourself "african".

+Jai Li don't need to educate me. I am scientist. So, the theory says, we all are African, we all have an origin there. It's true that in different places on earth we developed stronger or less stronger attributes, to survive there. I could not live in Africa, because my skin is not that pigmented to resist the UV. But all people on earth are still strongly related to each other, that strong, that we can't scientifically differentiate between races. If you refer to people as African, you are referring not to their culture but to their "racial" appearance. Why are you better than a racist, when you use their words and meanings?..you could say: "I am better, because I don't hate those people". But in using this kind of words and meanings you automatically supporting racial differences, and from that is only a small step to the hatred of a whole group of people. Don't support racism look and refer to the people as individuals, as they truly are.

@At D No, it is not. A little science education for you: Africans, as a genotype, are considered an originating strain, meaning that the gene pattern that determines the specific Negroid phenotypical set of attributes began in Southeastern Africa, off northern coast of Zimbabwean steppes. This strain was the initial populator of the world. Hence, when we say African, we mean a “mother” genotype. France is actually a melange of gene strains of Gallic, Slavic, Greco-Roman (and later centuries, Hamitic, Semitic and other strains) and is more a collection of ideas and a history forged from war and geographical position, mostly Gallic influence but made from centuries of invasion. What is this great insistence you have to avoid the fact that France eventually went on an imperialistic rant and became a slave-owning European empire like all the others? Puhleez (to Trevor’s point), how did all those African-looking faces, speaking all different kinds of idioms with varying different customs and laws from each other, all of a sudden start speaking French anyway?, hmmmm...? Your fervent desire to try to convince me (and anyone) that somehow African is a racist word reveals more about your fear of recognizing that history than any “meaning” you’re desperately trying to put to the word. And once again, how dare you? An African tells you call him African, but YOU know better than he what he should be called? Sounds a little supremacist to me! It is all well and good that you personally make effort to pass on color discrimination, but color/cultural appreciation is something different. Do not be so naive as to confuse the two. The fact of the matter is, the world does not agree with you on your assessment of “African”; however, I’m sure you’ll find an audience among your fellow Nazi and white supremacist activists and sympathizers.

+Jai Li if I am referring to people I don't care, what physical attributes they have. I don't refer to people as African or European. Most of the time I don't even refer to people's nationalities. I do something like that only if it matters. For example, a shorter guy has a disadvantage in playing basketball or volleyball. If you are referring to a sportsman as African, even so he maybe never visited it and has nothing to do with Africa at all. Referring like this is rasist. Even if an "African" says it to an "African".

At D Wow, that’s the problem with white supremacist language. “African” is not an evil word. You REALLY must listen to Trevor’s point about this again; Trevor is completely owning the beauty that is being African. You are attempting to imply a universal acceptance to the denigration of the word. That is the problem that you personally must unpack. They should refer to themselves as African-French. When you attempt to deny a person’s physical attributes’ existences, you are trying to erase a significant part of a person’s life experience and self-perspective, as if there is something evil or lesser about it. How dare you. African is as beautiful as all others in this planet ( and really is more so, as she is the mother for all of us!). The labels aren’t the problem, it’s the evil intent behind.

He did miss the fact that the French think that being French is the best thing that could happen to a person, and if you mention that being African is as good as being French, they will simply think that you're insane. The French fight among themselves but have a huge number of things they agree about, and this is one of them. To imagine another culture could approach their own is simply ridiculous and would never occur to anyone. Therefore, the awarding of French Citizenship is the best thing that could happen to anyone.

White people in America have called themselves French-, Irish-, Italian-, German-, and English-American for centuries. Not all Black people in America are Black. We come in many shades from blue tint to light-bright-damn near white. America imposed the distinction of Black on all these various shades, by law in some places. However, when Blacks began to call ourselves African-American to encompass all these shades of blackness, remember Whites used to refer to it as colored, White people were up in arms declaring, "you're not African at all. You're American," despite the fact we were only doing what they have been doing for centuries. Only in America.

One last thing.No,there is no difference.When the language and the intentions of that speaking are foul they are foul from any mouth. Intergration is something that both parties must fight for,and in that sense since you spoke exactly the language of the french far right you are far right for me.If you think that you can't be far right because of your origin you are racist too.

I strongly disagree with Noah on this one. While I understand where he's going to, he basically said your nationality or even your identity is at least partly based on your ethnicity. And that is just plain wrong. To make things worst, that's the arguement of racist europe. While (from an outside perspective) american racist tend to see the 'wihte race' as supperior, most european racist argue differently. They state that some sociaties are superior to others and that you're linked to such a sociaty by your ethnicity. Therefore if your parents or grandparents or even grandgrandparents are of a certain ethnicity or religion you cannot be german, french, italian... or whatever, not neccessarily because you're inferior (although that's the underlying tone) but because sociaty is a fixed construct and you won't match.

Yeah I never considered an African-American any less American or any more African. They are most definitely both. Whats the big deal. This letter from the French Ambassador confuses me.

How successful would the African players have been if they didn’t play for France, with there organisation and discipline. Also America was never a Country full of these Euro-Americans so it’s default is duel heritage but for most countries this is not the case. In England the Culture has been English for 100’s of Years, they can’t trace there ancestry out of England. The same can’t be said for the US.

Its a tough and odd subject. I get that you might want to celebrate history and be Irish American or African American but its also something for scum bags to exploit. Frankly, I think Tevors view is the one for a Utopia where you celebrate your uniqueness without it being used against you. While there are idiots in countries I feel the French way is the more sensible. I agree with the ambassador about the hyphenated designation. As a Brit, I would find it really odd for a black guy to say they were African-British. I would think 'no you are British' unless they were born in Africa and lived their whole life here. Most black people in any Western country are so far removed from Africa for it to be almost meaningless not to mention that there is almost zero chance that their genes would be all African. There has been mixing going on for 100s of years now. They just have a higher 73% of African ancestry than Caucasian 27%. Perhaps they should describe themselves as 'mostly-African-American' instead.

I think Trevor is completely wrong on this to be honest. He pretty much twisted the ambassador's words when in reality they are saying the exact same thing. Trevor's right in saying that context matters, as is he also right in saying that you can be both African and French. But that's literally exactly what the French ambassador was saying. Trevor's joke in question wasn't that "African-Frenchmen won the world cup," it was that "Africans won the the world cup." In other words, from the point of view of the French ambassador, Trevor was implying that they cannot be both African and French, and that they can only be African, which he felt excluded those players of their "Frenchness." That's the whole point of the response. And that makes sense when you look at the CONTEXT of the joke that the ambassador was responding to. Trevor even goes on to explain how there is a pervasive problem with racists within France who deny these player their Frenchness, and that such a joke coming from him could be used as fuel to such racists. Yet, he ignores the practical merit of the ambassador's message, which happened to be exactly the same as his own, in favor of an impractical message that ironically a manifestation of the same problem he's talking about. He says essentially that "when I call them African, I am not excluding them from their Frenchness, but I am including them in my Africanness," which is so hypocritical point when you consider that from the French ambassador's point of view, when he calls them French, he is not excluding them from their Africanness, but rather he is including them in his Frenchness. It's similarly ironic that Trevor mocks the fact that the French deem Africans true Frenchmen when they do something heroic or noble, when in fact Trevor is doing the exact same thing, he is claiming those African Frenchmen as his own and celebrating their Africanness BECAUSE they did something heroic or noble, because they won the world cup. At least the ambassador's version of the message had a practical purpose of dissuading racists within his own country. Trevor is essentially just praising his own race, which is disgusting. And it's not the first time he's done this where he dives into identity politics in such a stupid and twisted way. As an immigrant who has lived through the struggles of acceptance and rejection through successes and failures, that is a heartbreaking thing to hear from someone I respect. From my point of view, it just sounds like two parents fighting over a child after a divorce. When the child does something good, one parent says "he got that from me." When the child does something bad, another parent says, "he got that from you." Neither parent actually cares about what the child actually thinks or feels. It's all about their perspective. It's all about Trevor and the ambassador's perspective. In reality, from the child's perspective, when he does something good, he says "I got that from me, not you, and not you. I did this for me. It's not about you or you." We won the world cup because we are great players, not because we are French and not because we are African. That's what Trevor doesn't get.

So grateful to have access to his thoughtful, eloquent perspectives, informed by his South African experiences and more recent experiences living in America, on such issues. Not a perspective I would otherwise often get to hear. Always gives so much food for thought.

Man, that embassador was drunk for sure .. don't tell me he wasn't, all European soccer fans are , especially during the world cup. It's a weird habit to pick up a pen and a paper and send a letter, when drunk .. pretty old-school fella.

Look, I am full with you and you are absolutely right, but, as quite as a few people at your/our wonderful place (earth), simply unaware, as many others in our industrialised first world, of the damage white underground terrorist groups do to our democracy. The ambassador (de la France, alors là très important, n'est-ce pas?.. 🤣 ) had to react due to the fact that white underground terrorist groups (I like to call'em like that), in France, said EXACTLY the same thing all around social media. As usual unpunished... Just that. I admire you and your sharp mind, keep on 🇦🇴 be more naughty ♡

How can "most" french people be angry at Trevor while most of them don't  even know who he is ? A french ambassador is not all french people, not even just "most" of them.

I do get why France considers this troublesome; in Europe, but especially France it is becoming taboo to refer to someone as an African Frenchman, or a Turkish German, Moroccan Dutch. Their French, German or Dutch identity is no less than a native and as long as you refer to them as an African Frenchman they will never become an integral part of French society, they are not 'normal' French, they're African French, 'they're different'. I think it is actually a good thing the Ambassador spoke out against any such statements, and wish more would do the same. I do realize you could say France is saying this just because they want to own the victory, but I don't believe that to be completely true.

My problem with the black population in France is that there all there as a result of colonialism. So when France thinks of it self as a tollorent and open socially, there wrong! There only reason there that open is beacuse there former empire lead them to a situation where they had no choice
