    Hello James.

    This is the comment I posted there:

    While I cannot say many things about the American situation, I know that in France non-whites are as racist as white folks.

    For me, the liberal bias (and I would most likely be viewed as a liberal myself in the United States since I am both a socialist and a proponent of gay mariage) does not consist in giving to black and arab persons the right to speak about the racism they are victim of (which is undoubtedly very real) but in denying the right of white people to complain about the racism they endure (which is far from being imaginary as well).

    As I explained in my post, such an asymetry fosters a vicious circle of hatred.
