Paris Deputy Mayor Audrey Pulvar announced that white individuals may attend meetings on racism, but must remain quiet.
Quite a lot of backlash followed her statement, many outraged at her reluctance to include anyone other than Blacks in the meetings.
Former French prime minister Manuel Valls responded to the claim by asking, ““Do you have to be Jewish to talk about antisemitism?”He explained that the logic Pulvar used just “justifies the victim” and “leads to disaster.”
The fear in Pulvar’s words is that exclusion of certain groups in the discussion of racism causes its own discrimination and does not help raise awareness or progress equality.
Pulvar however, felt that Blacks who experienced racism should have a place to discuss their experiences amongst themselves.
