        "I'm not trying to be an asshole but I think it's not a reflection of diversity, more a reflection of colonialism"
        France colonized by africans is French colonialism ? And I guess Trevor Noah doesn't know the only colonies France had were Québec and Algeria. France never sent settlers anywhere else at the time of colonialism.

        "In France, a lot of the nazis use the fact the players are of african descent to shit on their frenchness, you know"
        So, the French are nazis, wow, ok. And they shit on their national team... ok. I'm French but I didn't know this.

        "Blacks all over the world were celebrating this victory at the world cup"
        I don't think so, do the blacks in USA celebrate when Senegal win a competition ? That's nonsense. You couldn't even place this country on a map. You don't even care about "soccer" in USA. Africans had 5 teams qualified for the world cup, including black countries like Nigeria and Senegal, and they lost.

        " "Look at these africans who can become French because they won the world cup for us" "
        They're already French, if they weren't they wouldn't be in the French team...
        "Look at these africans who can become Americans because they won the olympic games for us."

         " "They're not african, they're French !" And I'm like... Why can't they be both ? "
        That wasn't your point... You're obliged to bring this because you know you're wrong. "African" is not a nationality, and Guadeloupe and Martinique were French territories before for exemple a part of Provence and the city of Nice. And you can't be in the French team if you're a supporter of another country. The africans don't have the fantaisies black americans like Trevor Noah can have about his origins. If they've come to France, it's because they didn't want to live in Africa. The French haven't treated them like slaves until the 1960's like Americans did in USA. You can have the double nationality in France, while in USA this is denied to the citizens when you become American you must leave your former nationality.

        "So what they're saying is "in order to be French you have to erase everything that is african" ?"
        Who said they aren't French, not France, they're in the FRENCH NATIONAL TEAM of France's NATIONAL SPORT.... You've said they aren't French.

        "So you can not be French and african at the same time"
        You can if you have a double nationality. The French aren't defined by a color or a religion, they're defined by their citizenship.

        This whole speech is shocking,
        "The French team isn't French because there aren't only whites in it."
        "And as a matter of fact the French have not won the world cup, but africans did."
        "Because the French anyway treat the non whites as they were not French, and they're nazis."
        "And the French aren't diverse, they're colonialists."
        "And I know it because I know, you know."

        It's like the French lost everything: they're colonized but they're the colonialists, they haven't won the world cup, they fought the nazis but they're the nazis...

        Je pense que les américains, et particulièrement les noirs, ont un sérieux problème existentiel lié à la ségrégation raciale que leurs ancêtres ont pu subir aux USA. Ils projettent leurs problèmes d'américains sur des français qu'ils ne connaissent pas, et sur des français noirs qu'ils connaissent encore moins ! Des français noirs qui n'ont jamais subi l'apartheid racial en France, alors qu'aux USA les noirs l'ont subi jusque dans les années 1960... Des français noirs qui n'ont jamais été massacrés en Afrique comme les indiens l'ont été par les américains. Trevor Noah ne réfléchit pas, il ne sait pas que les français étaient alliés aux indiens lorsqu'ils étaient en Amérique ? Il ne sait pas que la colonisation française de l'Afrique n'a rien a voir avec la colonisation anglaise, belge ou espagnole ?
        C'est un cruel manque de culture et une absence de modestie qui amène ce Trevor Noah à chier sur la France et les français.

          I'm a Norwegian-American, and I'm proud of both heritages. I believe the fact that we can all be Americans and yet honor all of our different ethnic backgrounds is one of the reasons that America is both great and unique. I hope I don't offend any dog owners, but I believe a mixed-mutt is the best kind of dog out there. I'm proud to be a member of a nation of "mutts" (and I use only the good definition of mutt -- "a dog of mixed breeds").

                      lol the French colonisation in some African countries is so overt that even in China I meet African people who introduce themselves as French but they've never been to France. it's like me introducing myself as english but I've never been to England. we were colonised , we moving on but heyyy I am still South African , i have my native language.

                                Disagree about the way you tried to make America so much more righteous than the French, blacks are considered lowly everywhere including America except for when they do something that meets white approval. Anytime they stand up in defiance against something the same people clapping about how great America still is are the same ones getting mad because football players take a knee during an outdated national anthem.

                                                    I’m black and I’ve lived in France. This claim of yours is false. The majority of Black people live in the outskirts of town (ban lieu) which are bereft of real economic opportunities to move up the social ladder.

                                                          I was about to argue with you, until I realized you were talking about soccer -- and not American football (I know nothing about soccer). In fact, I bet we even have some good Norwegian-American (US) football players -- although I would be hard pressed to name any of them. Knute Rockne is the only Norwegian-American that comes to mind when you talk about American football. And he coached the "Fighting Irish" -- there must be some irony in there somewhere.

There is no hyphenation because that implies an alienation. I have never heard of white as a modifier for American. I ave never heard of White-American or English-American. There is a subtle racism in the US with hyphentations. A 'normal' American is white. Everyone else is a hyphenated-American. In France, everyone is French. Not Noire-Francaise or Africane-Francaaise.

                                                                              I think none american should lecture anyone else on this matter, because a country which made assimilation and ethnocide as their brandmark by calling it the society of the melting pot or the Salat bowl. The degree of Nationalism is indeed intense in the USA. Millions of Black people in America do not know from which country in africa they came from. There are also Millions of people with german heritage, but they are not able to speak it anymore.

But sometimes i regret being "italian" because people tend to be racist against people who are from different country or Religion.

So in France you can belong to two countries, while you cannot int he US. You have officially to renounce your former country. It is therefore hard to take Trevor serious on this comparison.

Tell me is it ok for me also to say about France winning the world cup that Africa won it? Or would you think im racist since im white? Here I'll say it France did not win the World Cup Africa did because they're all black Because if you said it then all of us can say it and then you'll have to make a show about whites saying stuff like that. So with respect just own you fked up and shut the fuck up
