Mainstream News Media Attacks Yellow Vests Protests for Being "so white"

Why are France's yellow vest protests so white?



Few minorities attend rallies demanding change from President Macron, which have seen outbursts of racism.





Youcef Brakni was preparing to hit the send button on his Facebook post when he took a moment to reconsider. Finally, his organisation, the Adama Committee, an anti-racism and anti-police-violence group, had decided to join the yellow vest movement. But Brakni wasn't sure his voice would be heard

"We're always associated with violence," he said later. "Whether you stay out of protests or get involved, you're associated with violence."





It's a white movement. The question of minorities and their specific concerns are not central to yellow vests.


Rather then acknowledging the issues of the yellow vests movement which they had.
MSM attacks the yellow vest protester movement for being to white and racist agaisnt Minorities and Africans.

Dispute the fact that the majority of the protesters with the yellow vests movement are also agaisnt Macron/Liberals' France immigration policy. Apparently now MSM believes if your agaisnt minorities or agaisnt the immigration policy you are racist.


This just goes to show how out of touch the Mainstream News Media is with reality on the ground in Europe and in France, if you are agaisnt a gov that is promoting open borders you would deemed racist.

Why does colour factor into this? If you look at the protests in Venezuela they are white too. What are you looking for?

Seems to work for the MSM in the US.

Leave it to the MSM to try to spin a populist movement as racist. If that's all the ammo they have left, that's a great sign.

I think for myself, the MSM is a whisper in the distance. Life's experience speaks more loudly for me.

It's like asking why is China so Chinese. We need more diversity in protests now or are they by default racist or are they secretly racist? Openly racist?

So hard to keep up

Considering France itself has prohibited it's own census from asking race or faith questions, I can see why the MSM is chomping at the bit to interject racial overtones into the conversation.

To France, it's the French protesting.

Do you try to sound like that or is it natural?

Simply being white is a bad thing in the eyes of the MSM.

Kind of like how simply being Jewish was a bad thing in Germany 1933.

Yes. If only the entire planet was more like you, we'd have no problems. Unfortunately, out of the 7+ billion people, you are but one person.

So constantly saying "just stop listening to the MSM, problem solved" only works for you and those who do think like you. There are MILLIONS of people unwilling, incapable of, or too ignorant to think for themselves, and this is why the MSM are doing a disservice. Because it is those people who will see a one sided liberal agenda driven angle..

Like the thread the other day about youtube censoring results. I had responded to you there, but by time I hit reply, the thread was 404. It's not you or I who needs to be told not to rely on the MSM... and telling those who DO need to be told, will make no difference.

Therefore, the MSM, and agencies like google, facebook, et al, must be held to account for their misleading, one sided, social engineering agenda.

Anyway, I think the yellow vests are too white because there are not enough POC wearing them.. We must now tell them to wear them, or pay them to, in order to have a more balanced representation of the yellow vests. Even if they don't care about what it is, it's all about appearances, or it's the white privilege all over again.

The minorities need to stop complaining that they are excluded by (er) getting involved. The OP is a good example of of an activist whining-on, but unable to find a reason to mix with the whities he's complaining about.

You are not racist if you are against minorities?

France is a white country and they are protesting what's being done with it.

French people are white. An African can never be French. He will always be an African living in France, born there or not.

Don't like it? There's an entire continent you can move to where there is no issue with too many whites.



If you are a French citizen you are French, regardless of skin colour.

Still ten out of ten for nor even attempting to hide your racism ( or complete lack of knowledge of French history).

Against minorities? Like against citizens of a minority race in your country having rights and equality? Or like foreign citizens of other countries that are coming into your country and your countries citizens don't want more?

You worded what you said very ambiguously...as these protesters don't seem to be against minorities that are citizens based on race...that would be racist.

No you aren't. You are defined as a European from a European Native Culture, not Asian/African/Arabs. Whats happening in France and Europe they are trying to change the European Culture permanently.
