M'aidez, Al Sharpton, M'aidez Jesse Jackson!

Welcome, HuffPo readers. Take a read below and afterwards, click around and get to know us... Thank god you're such an openminded lot.

The North Africans are being shot at, chased, electrocuted and ignored in Paris. There's an uprising of emense proportions and no Social Justice advocate seems to want to intervene on behalf of the oppressed French minority.

"...Rioting youths shot at police and firefighters Thursday after burning car dealerships and public buses and hurling rocks at commuter trains. France's government faced growing pressure to curb the violence, fueled by anger over poor conditions in suburban Paris housing projects... The riots started last Thursday after the electrocution deaths of two teenagers hiding in a power station from police they believed were chasing them in the northeastern suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois... Rather than feeling embraced as full and equal citizens, immigrants and their French-born children complain of police harassment and of being refused jobs, housing and opportunities..."

Are we just going to stand by and watch as these helpless victims of French racism are herded into unvenitlated apartments and left to die the way the French let the elderly and the poor die these last few summers? Over 35,000 deaths that summer and not even a word from Sharpton or anyone else.

Rise up! Demand that the UN investigate these atrocities! Your voice must be heard!

N'oubliez pas... No Justice. No Peace.
