What’s the problem? Is he not qualified to do that? Is that a whites only job? Is he a slave?

Were all slaves black? Or is this social conditioned stereotyping that we were brought up to believe?

Are all threads serious? Or is it a forum conditioned stereotype that we've been lead to believe?

I can say one thing for certain... "National day of the abolition of slavery" has been photoshopped onto the top of that blue banner.... Badly.
Just for info

The photoshopping was just a translation so that English speaking people could be shocked too.

This shows the importance of context and the problems that single photos can have when they are shared with millions of people without any explanations.

This event was just a relatively small one in a town in France. The kid offered to hold the umbrella for the speaker. One of the next speakers was a black woman, and the boy also helped to keep her dry, but that picture wasn't deemed worthy of million re-tweets.

So the title should surely be "you can make this up" 🤣
By that, I don't mean you BTW just to be clear
