Paris mayor may ban black feminist festival

The mayor of Paris has called for a black feminist festival in the city to be banned on the grounds that it excludes white people.
At the Nyansapo Festival in July, billed as "blackfeminist", 80% of the venue will be reserved for black women.
Black people of any gender will be allowed in another area, while a third area will be open to all.

anne hildalgo is the mayor

Notre Dame: Attacker shouted that he was a soldier of Isil as he attempted to strike police officer with hammer

French police shot a man outside Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on Tuesday after he tried to attack them with a hammer and shouted "This is for Syria" in a terror incident just two days after the London attacks.
French media said the man, who claimed to be an Algerian "student", was also in possession of two kitchen knives and other unsophisticated weapons. One policeman, aged 22, was lightly injured in the neck.

people in the US are fond of saying "a republic not a empire" and "a president not a king" to convey the idea of limited government
not so in france, where the new socialist president macron thinks he is not just a king but also a god
Macron, a new Franco-European monarch
In an interview with the weekly Challenges last year, Macron had said he wanted to be a "jupiterian president", referring to the array of Jupiter-like powers of a president.

that interview
Macron ne croit pas "au président normal, cela déstabilise les Français"
I thought the term was "Jovian" (or "Jovien" in french), not "jupiterian" or "jupitérien"

macron has also clarified why mere mortals have had difficulties understanding his Jovian pronouncements. It's not because he has poor communication skills or poorly thought-out policies that make no sense. Rather, mere mortals are incapable of understanding his godlike thought processes
My thoughts are 'too complex' for journalists, says Emmanuel Macron

American and French presidents with their wives: Brigitte and Melania. Did you notice Melania is taller than Emmanuel? But Brigitte and Donald fit perfectly.
