With Marseille, France being recently filled with riots for nearly a week following a fatal police shooting of a Muslim teenager, Ezra went and spoke to members of the Muslim community. Ezra ended up speaking with Muslim men, asking them about important topics such as: violence, racism, and justice in France.
Ezra spoke with a man named Mohammed, who claimed that "everything that's happening here is because of the government."
It's the fault of the police, it's the fault of the state, because here in France, there is too much racism.
Racism is at its peak here in France. That's all I have to say, that's it.
There will be no justice here in France. As long as they are racist, there will be no justice.
There needs to be equality among people. Equality is needed, respect for religions is needed, but above all, respect for Muslims is needed. Because Muslims are not respected here. They treat us like terrorists, we are not terrorists.
I don't condemn anyone, everyone is responsible for their actions.
I have no message for Macron, I only have this message: Islam is a religion of peace, period!
