A french rapper #NickConrad has made a music video "Hang up white people" showing life if Black people had enslaved white people (think a more violent Noughts and Crosses). A few anti racists organizations have sued him & he is on trial right now dailymotion.com/video/x6uc40c
The prosecution also says that anti white racism is alive and well and white people deserve to be protected. For them, #NickConrad is encouraging his audience to kill white people and the music video should have had a mention that it was fictional.
Conrad mentions that all his life he has faced racism. He used to work at a four star hotel and the micro agressions there were unbearable. He quickly realizes France would never acknowledge a black person like him. He wanted to portray that violence.
