Trevor ... Cut the crap ! ’ I see u ‘ , good u really took the time to think of a way out, but French is French and many of us have a divers origines yes. What u r saying is we should make the distinction like in America and say Black French, isn’t it ? And Oh , the colonies ... Black peoples are the citizens of many countries in Europe, so hey ... Black Spanish, Black German, Black English and on and on ? What about South Africa, u share the same flag than White and they r so proud to be South Africans ? What about their whiteness ... Do they say I’m German or South African ? Also, u took the piss with how proud America be by Irish community celebrating St Patrick’s day ! Irrelevant (even if there’s Black Irish too) .... The conversation was about blackness and more here !

Trevor you don't keep joking about something that means so much to those athletes and by extent people of foreign origin in France. To me it seems you're undermining a huge victory and that's very little even more so when the number of players born in France is the biggest amongst the players at the world cup. Not that you can't joke about a majority of african players but that doesn't make up for their talent, as they were all trained in France and some grew in suburbs where football seemed like the only way to success (trying to justify the quality of their training). Truthfully i think you owe an apology for using your influence to diminish the pride of a country, that was a piece of shit move ngl, have a great day tho g

When I think of countries with a melting pot of races, I think of; the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia and France. ONLY in the United States a dark skinned person is called an african american, a native is called a native american and a person with latin roots is called a hispanic. In the other countries you are just French, Colombiano/Colombiana, Brasileiro/Brasileira or Canadian regardless of your skin color.

Trevor i really love what your doing and the way you present yourself. In this particular case i cant follow your argument. I agree that in its essence we all have strong tribal roots and identifications, often more then our respective passports. Many conflincts are either tribal or religious conflicts actually rather then nationalistic. Its not a question of black and white, but we see the same issues between white and white and between black and black. My point? Playing for a National Team...you play for a flag or nation by its definition and so in this case its an entirely French victory. No, ypu dont have to give up your heritage, of course not...but in the context of winning for France, or any other country for that matter...heritage and race does not matter. I do agree though, there is plenty of hypocritical behaviour going on elsewhere and in France as well. Thats just human. Unfortunately.

And you're just missing that French love debating and exchanging views maybe as much as Anglosaxons hate it and feel uncomfortable in confrontation, used to hide it into jokes allowing only little teasy pucnhlines, that's good, but just try to understand that French culture isn't the same, that's not "rude" for french to have frank opposition, nor is it "arrogant" to go deeper in the exchange, and that doesn't matter if a joke (even a bad one) moves into a discussion, while that's felt as an attack for a lot anglosaxons. It seems that as soon as it comes to sensitive matter, the need for a french is first to feel some sincerity (and then maybe ok for jokes), while the need for an aglosaxon would be first to keep a light mood (and only then maybe put some true opinion into the teasy jokes). Maybe thos 2 cultures are made to misunderstand each other, because while having a lot in common, almost everything is differently seen, for me that's just funny. By the way that went viral because (far before the ambassador reaction) black sportivement in France reacted to this "joke" and answered it, they didn't take it so good, normal because racial issues are totally different between the 2 countries.

Actually It's no difference between "French Ambassador" and Trevor Noah's point of view. Mr. Ambassador seems to be against Africans and Mr. Noah against France. The truth is, nationalism is the father of racism. It's no difference between them. The system and its media are just fucking with us, by forcing people, with different national/religious background, fight against each other. Why should I be proud of be an Iranian? Or Swedish? African? American? We all are the same. Do not let religion or nationalism separate us. Regards from a proud human being.

But a black guy who was born and has lived in France is... French. The real question here is why you don't accept that a black guy who was born and has lived all is life in the USA is not totally, entirely, completely an American citizen. Why is he just partly American in your country, African-American ? He has no African ctulture ! Hmm let me guess... racism ?

They are more less part of French society. These players are born and raised in France. They are French citizens. First of all France is a multi ethnic nation.Such a nation have blakk and white people. Even though black is minority they are still part of France society.These players are n out foreigners to that nation. They are born and raised there. So it is Frances own victory. Not Any Africas. The french football academies through their strenous efforts and money made these players to become the talents we see.Appreciate the efforts done by the nation rather than being stupid.

@MaitreGiggs There is nothing objective about the definition of racism as it given in the dictionary. That's my position. If you want a scientific definition of racism you consult the brach of social sciences that specialize on this issue. Measuring differential experiences, treatment, and outcome across racial categories and or gender is necessary to track disparities and to inform policy making with the goals of achieving greater social justice. Just because these same scientific data may be used for nefarious purposes is not a reason not to collect them. Refusing to acknowledge the fact of racial classification, feelings and actions and refusing to measure their consequences will not eliminate racial inequalities. It just preserve the status quo. France understands that. This is why France starts collecting statistical information on gender. Why is France refusing to do the same thing for racial categories? Just last month, France 's national assembly voted unanimously to remove the word "race" from the constitution because supposedly there is one human race. I call it bullsh!t because racial hierarchies are embedded in daily life( law enforcement, employment, education, housing, health outcomes etc.) I have not stop talking about France's sordid history of racism, (neo) colonialism and imperialism with respect to Africans or people of African ancestry. I just don't have the time to teach you about your own history. Here are a few examples: Les tirailleurs Senegalais(senegalese riflemen) and the thiaroye massacre - West African Colonial Army troops who fought for the French during World War I, World War II, and in numerous conquest, police, and colonial counterinsurgency operations. How did France show its gratitude: Killing them when they dare demand their back pay https://rebellyon.info/La-France-fait-massacrer-des-Africains La guerre cachee du Cameroon(1948 - 1971) aka France secret colonial and neocolonial wars in Cameroun from 1948 to 1971 http://www.les-renseignements-genereux.org/var/fichiers/textes/Itw_Deltombe_Kamerun.pdf France support for South African Apartheid: A secret office in Paris whose job was to broker illegal arms deals with arms companies and middleman throughout wester europe that fueled apartheid war machine: https://www.news24.com/Columnists/GuestColumn/declassified-apartheid-profits-pretorias-beehive-in-paris-20170914 France role in the Rwanda genocide. France trained and armed the Hutus and provide them with cover. France role in Cote d'Ivoire which led to Laurent Gbagbo being prosecuted in the tribunal des negriers aka the Hague court. Franc CFA the colonial currency that France uses to steal natural resources from Francecafrique, to balance its budget, to lend African their own money and to make money of Africans. In short, it is French monetary imperialism in Africa French society needs to do some soul searching. I neither have the time or the patience to assist in this endeavor.

>90% of the people in this comment section missed Trevor’s point completely... but then again I guess it is because most you don’t understand what it is like being a black man In this world, a world that sees you as a reproach, a byword of scorn and derision, a world that only recognizes you as scum, that points fingers to a whole race based of the actions of a few. While in the back drop of their indignation, sweeping beneath the carpet the atrocities, injustices and destruction brought upon this people by their fathers and forefathers. Feeding their ignorances under the guise of modernity hidden behind unimpassioned statements such as “that’s in the past now forget about it” “I never did any of that” “stop feeling sorry for yourselves” honestly black people get over it” just to mention but a few. My intention is not to stereotype because, individually people do not frequently present as narrow-minded, but as a collective their opinions are those that solely belong to the privileged. It’s funny how whenever a black man is recognized for great feats of accomplishment within the land of his oppression he is recognized as a great patriot of the nation, while whenever an offense has been committed we are very quickly reminded of our black African-ness, as if to be a virus, a scourge of vipers with no significant contribution to modern civilization. Though these so called great western nations were built of the back of such said sorry people, from religion to science, math and medicine all having their foundations found in great ancient African civilizations. Though this is not taught in our school curriculums where everything great is depicted as the accomplishments of white men and everything negative, uncommonly and uncivilized attributed to the black/African in an effort to disguise, to whitewash history, for the continued oppression and searing of Black/African consciousness. I know that I have gone off on a tangent but all these things are related and need to be brought to light, in the hope, though minuscule, that someone of a completely different background or mindset might find truth in these words and that that truth might bring change to their hearts and that that change might bring a better understanding of the circumstances of people different to themselves but more specifically Black/Africans(especially 21st century immigrants in western societies) and to position themselves in the shoes of such people. you might just be very unpleasantly surprised to find out how differently it is we experience the world. The majority will disagree with me in their ignorant obedience maybe because the truth hurts or maybe because it is easier to fool a human being then a human being to admit that they have been fooled. Trevor my brother your sentiments are heard and understood but unfortunately have fell upon the deaf ears of the privileged and the sheeple. Shalom 🙏🏾

Trevor stuck to "this is how we see it and how we do it, and to hell with you because our way is right". Which is basically what every diplomat ever gets when they try to explain a different point of view to US officials. The ambassador should have started by saying he was miffed because Trevor Noah relayed a bad racist joke (it emenated from the extreme right Italian Party) before explaining that France does not see things that way and therefore does it another way. Would it have changed anything ? I think not. Someone in official capacities answers a journalist about a stupid subject and he can't get heard.

Let me just tell you that the word "race" has just been erased from the French Constitution (actually 2 days before the World Cup final), although it was used to say that all French citizens are equal before the law no matter what origin or race they are. It is now considered as obsolete, considering that science proves that there is only one race: the human race. That doesn't mean that French people are denied the right to defend their identity as individuals. The French definition of a nation is a community of individuals sharing the same values, being aware of sharing these values and ready to stand up for them (hence the slogan "Je suis Charlie" in 2015 after the terrorist attacks in Paris). Sorry to say, but from France the US often looks like "separated communities under God" rather than "One nation under God".

I can't believe he goes on again... ain't even funny anymore. Of course France colonized africans countries but you gotta go on at some point. And by the way dude come in france first you'll see by yourself that everyone practices its own religion and a lot of people claim that they french african, algerian, indian..... learn some really...

Trevor meant every word he said. People have the right to air out opinions based on their inner feelings as long as it is in a positive way. If I'm African and I see a black African descendant achieve something I have the right to call him my African brother as long as it is a mutual gesture or something not to mean any hate feeling. In so doing I'm never implying that they are not citizens of their own country. Please understand this Law and humanism are two different issues. When I went to US most of the black guys I met used to call me a brother associating themselves with black identity. This has absolutely nothing to do with racism or hatred. Its a deeper feeling of pride, and it doesn't mean those guys are not US citizens, NO. Unfortunately, most of you guys politicize anything. If you say France won the world cup in a positive and friendly way, that's great. And that's really what happened. If I say my African brothers won the world cup, there is also nothing wrong as long as you don't intend to hate anybody. This is what Trevor meant. Stop associating blacks with Africa. Let a pure black guy who is a citizen of France do something against the law, you will not here anything about France, but Africa with be the talk of the day!!! So unless you associate any criminal activity to Africa, then we will stop calling Africa the champions of the world cup. But meanwhile, Africa has won the world cup

Anand Vipin of course it is a hard topic. I do not disagree with you. They are French, they represented France, they won, and we are proud of them. It is also true that in France school is following the laïcité, where religion (and colour) is separated from education and gouvernement. This comes from the French revolution. When only the rich could be educated by the church. With laicite, everyone is equal, hence égalité, liberté, fraternité. What I liked about Trevor comments is that in today's France, white French people are being hypocrite. His example of the immigrant who saved the baby was so spot on. Blame is often put on people of colour. I also liked is comment about colonial French. France needs to sometime wonder why people are coming and France needs to remember there role during colonial time. I would love for France to truly return to laicite, everyone being equal no matter your colour, religion, background, and truly mean it. Thank you for your comment. Again it is a hard subject.

Unfortunately the French have the most ludicrous world views based on the fact that they are the cruelest people on Earth and it is hard for them to see things without their defensive ideologies coming into play. France absolutely raped Africa, look at the French colonies, they destroyed so many cultures and never gave anything back, at least Britain's colonies are now all super powers, France's are the poorest places on Earth that are still suffering from French invasion, and their victims have no rights to become French, they only get that privilege if they make France look good on the world stage!

I feel Trevor said what he said because he felt proud that: "Even though an African country has never won a World cup, the French team, with its many Black players symbolically represented Africa. As an African myself, it felt like a victory for us. It was like the same feeling when Obama became president. I cannot speak for all African nations, but I think the French victory should serve as a Wake-up call to Africa. It should teach Africa and it's leaders to look after it's people.

France is awesome! French football is awesome! France won the World cup! BUT, What is so wrong in feeling proud of a French player of African descent? The French team is great because they are inclusive and multicultural. The entire French team play with passion, skill, charisma, confidence, you name it! Look at Balotelli of Italy, he is the lone black player in the team. When he plays for Italy sometimes it seems like his confidence/ morale is low. He's performance suffers, and the fans give him a hard time for it sometimes. It almost makes me think: "If Balotelli had been a Frenchman, maybe he could have reached his full potential. As an African I am proud that the French players of African descent fought hard to help their country, FRANCE win the World Cup.... It is a complement to France and their system because I doubt there would be a Thierry Henry, Zidane, Thuram, Mbappe, Pogba, etc if it wasn't for France. So lets look at it as a Win-Win situation. France won the World Cup and that positive energy Resonated with Africans around the world.

Mpho Ntswane How can a team with French born players be an African team. They are proud French persons. Even they patriotic ally fought for France. They represented their nation. Not Africa. Get your senses right. And btw 6 out of 11 in starring 11 players has no connections with Africa. Giroud Griezmann varane pavard Hernadez etc. If u actually love to see an African team go and watch US basket ball team
