In the wake of the recent shooting of Michael Brown, structual racism and police violence has become the subject of debate on both sides of the Atlantic. In a recent article on theroot.com, Shihame Assbabgue and Rokhaya Diallo discuss how the French media are quick to condemn the events in Ferguson while at the same time, they hardly ever cover similar structurally racist events in France.
