While it was expected that this appointment is unanimous, great was the surprise of both to find that this appointment was not to the liking of some French. The new secretary of state has since Sunday been the victim of racist attacks. Indeed, the fachosphere and a part of the right do not skimp on the means to attack, in the most violent way, to a young woman, very brilliant, whose only fault would be to be Black and hold a key position in a French government.
On the causes of these attacks, one evokes not only its origin, its color of skin, but on top of that, the fact for this last one to have been naturalized French there is very little time, which was not not allow him to occupy this post, according to the insulting comments.
In recent days, Sibeth Ndiaye wipes racist remarks and attacks on the web. Yet she chose to reach out to her detractors and put her mandate under the sign of “listening” and devotion to the service of France.
“To serve France is for me first of all to serve all Frenchmen. What I want is for this ministry to be open to them. This ministry, which is often considered as that of the word, I want it to be the one of the listening“she declared during her taking office. It is therefore a very positive lesson that Sibeth Ndiaye conveys to his detractors.
Read below some very bitter comments from those who oppose his appointment:
