The Debate

Is France Becoming Racist?

"It's an attack at the very heart of the French Republic". This is how the country's Justice Minister, Christiane Taubira, describes a recent spate of racist acts directed at herself. The politician was recently compared to a monkey on a far-right candidate's Facebook page, and taunted with a banana by a 12-year-old at a street protest. Annette Young and her guests discuss the rise of racism in contemporary France.
