      Same in HK. Hundreds of people were beaten up by thugs and rioters because they said they are both Chinese and Hong Kongers. People are doxxed or beaten up immediately once you openly say that in the public.

      People are hating communist so much that they are willing to deny their own race and nationality. Very sad because if China becomes a democratic country, would these people suddenly acknowledge that they are Chinese afterall?

        With respect, I think tribalism is a problem. We should temper the identity thing so it doesn't turn into bigotry and and (all to natural) us-versus-them.

          Context is for kings. It is a from of modern colonialism to deny people their original identity?

                    Thank you Trevor for responding to the ambassador's letter in an intelligent, thoughtful way. Also, some of the comments from French citizens are very interesting! I can see both sides, and this is what good discourse leads to.

                        You don’t really understand an other culture. From your own point of reference your story makes sense. French people have a complex idea of laicete where everybody is French. This is an effort to combat discrimination, an argument against the Front National. You may not fully inderstand it, you may think that it is better to do it another way. But coming from South Africa and living in the USA you are not very experienced in living in countries where racism is far less and the ways those countries go about it. Personally, I think that you are a nice guy but on the subject of identity you are a little lost. Although I really don’t understand why an ambassador is writing such a letter to a nice guy who applauds the players of the French national team in his own totally inofenxive and nice way. Succes with your show. Marc

                          I understand both but it does remind me of my own annoyance at hearing any of us, black or white, referring to black Americans in general as African American. To me it is a tag that isn't always appreciated by black Americans. We are not called European Americans and so, to me, it immediately implies that NO black American is truly American but whites are. It is one of those subtle messages that says "you do not really belong." I am a mixture of a LOT of things. My ex appeared to be mixed, skin darker than Noah but features typically seen with whites or Native Americans. Both his parents appeared to be average black Americans. But DNA showed he was 51/49. His genes traced him to nearly everywhere. Places with dark skinned people and light and in between. Our daughter, who we thought was basically half, was actually 73% European (white.) So to have been calling him African American would have been wrong. I now, if I need it for identification purposes, would simply say he was a black American or white American or mixed American. Unless they ACTUALLY came from Africa and became an American citizen. Then they are African Americans. Also, it is super important to understand that black Americans are a whole new "breed" of people. They have a mixture of cultures including any passed down from African roots as well as European or wherever else. And generations have been raised in America with all its racial issues that are uniquely American. So black Americans are TOTALLY different than Africans and Africans who are now also Americans.

                              Of course, the Black people are French in France only when it is convenient to the French people and make ko mistake the Ambassedor in question knows this as the truth, hence his reason for not answering to comments by Trevor Noah.

                                  My father flew for the USAF for 39 years. France’s country rely on athletes from other countries AND English/American military to win. At anything. If it weren’t for America/England there would be NO France. France being smug make others laugh which they’re oblivious. Keep laughing at being a joke on the world. ☺️

U are wrong, the president was talking about nationality not genetics. If u are not born in Africa u are not African nationality, u are french nationality. African decent is abt genetics. 2 totally different things & since the world cup is a tornament of countries/nationalities u shouldnt refer to them by race. To give an example look at Brazil's national team, very diverse, yet no 1 ever speaks of them as African or white or latino - JUST BRAZILIAN. U were wrong & U CANNOT TAKE CRITICISM!
