I could be wrong, but most black people in France are from French colonial possessions and, unless Frenchmen were more prude and peace loving than
their Spanish, English, Portuguese and Dutch counterparts, I'm going to go ahead and say that most Haitians, Martiniquans, Côte D'Ivoirians,
Benin-ians (not sure about the national terms here) and various other Caribbean islands and West African Nations have French Genetic make-up.
Whether the French (or any other European ex- or neo-Colonial power, for that matter) like it or not, they are the ones who initiated the
ethno-cultural shift in their sphere of influence with their actions. they set in motion the centuries-long dialog that created the "Mulatto,"
"Mestiço," "Patois", "Pocho", "Caboclos" and "Creole", people summed up nowadays really well by what I believe the Chicanos of the US Southwest call
"ni de allí, ni de allá" - in between people who are not exactly pure representatives of the colonized, nor of the colonizer.
The problem is the disenfranchisement in places like France, that has lead to politically correct "hypercorrections" and government instituted
affirmative action - which, at the end of the argument, boil down to State-sponsored racism (with a sunshine and rainbow packaging) and a blotched
sort of quick fix, because the real resolution is too difficult to deal with...kick the can down the road, as we tend to say here when politicians
avoid dealing with the fundamentals and focus on the symptomatic or superficial.
