France during Baldwin’s time and France today are totally different. France is experiencing a rise in fascims has well Chris. It’s not anti-Blackness as much as it is anti-Browness, but there is definitely xenophobia at play in France as well. A fear of otherness is something we Black people face no matter where we go in the world as long as there is a requirement to live amongst Whiteness. There is no good place, right place, or safe place to live on earth as long as it’s been touched by White Supremacy.
