France Sees First Racial Profiling Suit
A new, groundbreaking lawsuit filed by 15 Black and Arab French citizens who say they were unfairly targeted by police because of the color of their skin seeks to hold the French state accountable for the widespread harassment of minorities.
According to the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI), for many minorities in France, police stops have become another one of life’s daily routines. The claimants span all walks of French society, including students, a political aide, a delivery man and a professional musician, among others.
