Paris liberation made 'whites only'
Paris liberation made 'whites only'

By Mike Thomson
Presenter, Document, BBC Radio 4

Papers unearthed by the BBC reveal that British and American commanders ensured that the liberation of Paris on 25 August 1944 was seen as a "whites only" victory.

Many who fought Nazi Germany during World War II did so to defeat the vicious racism that left millions of Jews dead.
Yet the BBC's Document programme has seen evidence that black colonial soldiers - who made up around two-thirds of Free French forces - were deliberately removed from the unit that led the Allied advance into the French capital. (...)

So that's why they have lost. At last I truly see.

Jews were the only victims of WW2, didn't you know?

You can already smell the bullshit at the second sentence.

Quote:Many who fought Nazi Germany during World War II did so to defeat the vicious racism that left millions of Jews dead.

People who fought against NS Germany did that because they wanted to liberated their countries and/or to fight NS because they were communists.
"Fighting against racism" is Hollywood hardcore propaganda. Back then people were racist as fuck, commies or Gaullists.

I wonder what would be the reactions of people if they had seen these Africans marching in Paris with the Anglos.

Actually nobody in WW2 fought because they wanted to save Jews. Not even most of the Jews involved.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
