    If its true that minorities are prevented from joining the competition, then something should be done. Otherwise, I don't see it as a big deal. The majority of people in France are white after all...

    France is quite a racist country and has been for a long time. Real enlightened place, huh?

    Thats interesting I always thought France was very progressive.
    I read that they have huge influxs of immigrants...that doesnt seem
    to point to racism. I do admit I have no knowledge about frances
    attitudes

    France is extremely ethnocentric. You cannot be "French" without being born in France.

    There is a big, very conservative movement in France that is nativist and wants all foreigners out. It also wants to cleanse French of "foreign" words.

    The current president, Nicholas Sarkozy, is a conservative.

    Most countries are full on racist in their attitudes twards someone not "from there"

    Only America and Canada are tolerant of other races.

    France should do what is done in the US. We have a Miss Black America that white women cannot join. There isn't a qualification as the most beautiful, or most talented, but the darkest.
