  • Yeah it's a personal choice, no one has to blame you for that if you chose with your heart! As far as I'm concerned, I was born in France from a Capeverdian father and a French Caribbean mother, I'm sure I would choose France, and I'd I couldn't enter French NT, I wouldn't go to Cape Verde NT, I prefer letting my place to someone who is truly bound to this beautiful country.

  • Why do certain players sell out there countries and choose to represent countries that tried to suppress them and colonies them and take away there heritage. Kante for chelsea isn't French his African Costa is Brazilian plays for Spain. a lot of French players have been African. If Jamaica was more popular I guarantee sterling would represent Jamaica.

  • Blaming France is unfair. France's youth academies put a lot of efforts and work unbiasedly to train these anti-France immigrants into professionals. One should look back into his actions and see what he did for the country and people where he was created.

  • If the world embrace Islam and understands Islam as it should be understood, there would be no racism. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood."

  • ASSOU-EKOTTO - "Was he good enough to play for France"? What does that have to do with the subject? He refuses to play for Frances due to being subject to white supremacy in France. And came to the logical conclusion not to play for France. So bringing up if he is good enough to play for France is irrelevant. And a stupid dig!

  • The real reason Benzema doesn’t play for France is not about racism (even tho it’s part of it) but it has to do with a scandal of Benzema leaking the sextape of another French player, Valbuena. Since then, the coach, Deschamps has never wanted to work with Benzema again, which is understandable. Nowadays, I don’t even think Benzema would make the cut, as the French team is stacked, especially with strikers, like Giroud, Griezmann, Mbappé, Fekir, aouar, martial...

  • I can completely relate to the content here. The fact that reason that Racism is a huge turnoff for immigrants here in France. I'm a brown guy studying in France and I can feel the strong racism here that too in Paris. If you have been in the receiving end at least 4/5 times and it pisses me off. Even this Sunday when I was exiting a Metro a white lady started to shout at 2 black guys, it took us some time to understand it was racial slurs after 2 mins another black women shouted back at the lady. Now this is a area filled with immigrant working class with few native french. And the people here due to racism, also don't trust people of other race unless they know each other well. Additionally Football is viewed as a low class sport while they only approve Rugby, Tennis and others as sport that people should play. Even today if you walk in streets of France you see lot of people openly wearing their national team jerseys. And at times you can see more Algerian jerseys than French jerseys. And as said, the problems affect your other parts like work, housing, etc Google about Génération Identitaire, they look like neo-Nazis.
