And here is looking from another angle:

”When the Africans say that the 2018 World Cup was won by Africa and not by France,
The Response of a French Journalist: Read for yourself:

"We can give the same team to an African nation and they will not even reach the first rounds/ phase: the money for preparations will be diverted, the delegation will be filled with mistresses and family members going for tourism, those to prepare them Psychologically will be replaced with Pastors and Fetish Priests, cooks and massagers with no experience, Doctors chosen by affinity with the Minister ....... Shame, this team has nothing to do with Africa, colour is not enough. Long live France and bravo."

The author is presenting of an image of a France where descendants of immigrants are given a fair chance. Few years ago, Laurent Blanc then manager of the national team wanted to have quotas to limit the number of players of african descent in french youth teams because they are atheltic and not talented enough. I actually wish France was free of color discrimination.

Flip things around. The South African Swimming team consists of loads of Africans of European descent.

The South African foreign minister would say exactly the same thing the French foreign minister said.

Trevor Noah should have replied "he was only joking" instead of holding onto a shaky argument.


great analogy.

Will he? I beg to disagree, there is nothing shaky about Trevor Noah's argument. You are simply missing the true force of Noah's argument.

Indeed, if we do the same flip you suggested, think about the colonisation of SA and Apartheid. Is it the same for France, their football team, and what led to them playing for France? The history is colonialism for the French is different from colonialism from the English and the Whites that later became known as Afrikaans.

Let's be careful and look at our history as a race before we start flipping anything. Nothing is what it seems, it is far too complicated.

Trevor Noah, a brilliant man, made a joke. The French Ambassador replied. Noah responded, exposing the heart of the French Ambassador's darkness.

When I was in secondary school, I was taught about colonialism, it was truly brilliant in the subject of African history. I learnt about the French and British policies of colonialism. The policies of assimilation and association to be precise. The amazing thing is I am in another century, a supposed new age of enlightenment, but hearing Trevor Noah read the French Ambassador's letter, I realised, the French are still colonialists. The Ambassador just made manifest, neo-colonialism. The French policy of colonialism is very much the norm in 2018.

I like Noah but his argument was very weak. He should've cut his losses rather than namedropping the ambassador.

This was a French victory. They developed these guys and the team reflects the diversity of their society. As Africans we should celebrate the fact that diversity enriched their team, just as much as it enriches many other facets of western society. The France NT is good ammo against those that claim diversity is detrimental to the west. There are immigrants who fall through the cracks but the vast majority want to contribute and feel as valued members of society. I'm glad that the players of African descent on France made the most of their opportunity to contribute to their country. It should serve as a lesson to France that rather than ostracizing African immigrants and immigrants from other parts of the world, they should make a concerted effort to give them the tools they need to flourish in France.

...it is beneath the ambassador to have written the criticism letter, he should have stomached it and move on.
And yes, if they had lost this match, or any match during the campaign, the far right racists would have descended on them.
We all remember the incident with the French team at the 2010 world cup.


KPOM. I'm surprised more people are not pointing out that the Ambassador did not need to respond to what was clearly a joke anyway...he ended up give Trevor the opportunity to respond which is what has garnered so much more attention for Trevor than the joke ever could have by itself!

From the comment of posters here, I now know how retarded and brainwashed a lot of people are here on cybereagles. I will never take any of you retards serious anymore. No wonder Africa is a mess with people so retarded as this. tufiakwa.

Thank you Trevor :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

What's this xenophobe talking about? South Africans would have killed all those black players if they were to step into South African before the world cup. Nonsense!!

Trevor Noah's hit the ball out of the park. Anyone claiming his argument was poor has something wrong with his logic. Noah's argument was so strong and that's why this is making the rounds. If it was weak no one would have noticed.

Noah killed it.

I think the highlighted is the point Trevor Noah was trying to make albeit with sarcastic humor.

So my friend, you're making the same "weak argument". :P

great analogy.



You dummy. Europeans never lost their culture and their identity when they stepped foot on south Africa. Infact White South Africans used their European identity to justify their demonic Aparthied rule and imposed their culture on the native Africans. Same can be said of the Arabs. Bad analogy, dumb woman
