While there are plenty of naysayers who claim that France has "helped" Africa way too much over the last 500 years or so, that's not holding back the great Macron.
Here he is in Nigeria the other day, shaking his booty in a local club and promising hope for the youth of Africa.
Meanwhile, as he offers hope to the youth of Africa, the youth of the French banlieues are once again rioting in the streets, as they seem to do on a regular basis.
Why are they so pissed off?
They want hope!
They want opportunities!
Macron presides over an economy with 25% youth unemployment overall, and double that in the "migrant ghettos," the banlieues where the brown folks live.
Except they're not migrants. They're more often born in France and therefore, in theory, every bit as French as Mr. Macron himself.
They are the legacy of French colonialism in Africa.
So do Africa a favour, Mr. Macron; shut-up and go home.
Do something for the youth of France instead.
France has done enough for Africa.
