    France has had the most native players and coaches in the last 4 World Cups… and their dominance has been on the rise. Players like Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba are the children of immigrants and the product of the French soccer academy system. French- born players have played for Togo, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Argentina, Portugal, and many more.

    To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view. Video journalist Sam Ellis uses maps to tell these stories and chart their effects on foreign policy.

    +bernard johanson just to clarify everything, "races" doesnt exist in France. Most of my friend are from Benin but they feel (and are) french. In law History, they're two conceptions of nationality in Europe: the french and the german one. Prussians actually believed nationality was based on the origins and they used this argument to create Germany as we know it today (and that's also explain why they wanted the Alsace and the Lorraine even tho they were french). In France, nationality is bas...

    +bernard johanson if you are born in France from both French national or immigrant parents YOU are French national and have French passport, ID card. FULL STOP. You might think that this is not enough to become French but only because you are a racist.

    Tous ces commentaires d'Américains et d'Anglais racistes me font tellement rire, ils n'y connaissent rien mais se permettent de la ramener. Les États-Unis est l'un des pays les plus métissés du monde, y'a quasiment autant d'Afro-américains que de Blancs, sans compter la grande communauté musulmane, asiatique et latina. La Grande Bretagne est métissée comme la France du fait de leurs empires coloniaux en Afrique (Et en Inde pour les Britanniques), même si dans ces 2 pays la majorité de la population est...

    What Americans idiots who are obsessed with race don’t understand is that here in Europe (France or For example Switzerland, where I live) the people doesn’t refer to their ethnicity first to define their citizenship. In those French banlieues they are a lot of immigrants, living in poor areas but the issue is more a social issue than a race issue. It’s not like in the us, where blacks live in only black neighborhood, latinos in latinos neighborhood. In the same neighborhood, you can have arabs, blacks...
