THIERRY HENRY TOAST OF FRANCE

How is it

that France

YES France

have fielded World Cup Team

with a majority of Black national players

while USA had only a small handful of

Black players on the American team

MAYBE THERE IS A MESSAGE HERE

A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE

USA went home long ago but France is headed to their Semifinal Match Wednesday against Portugal after their Upset of Brazil with Black Frenchman and Soccer SuperStar Thierry Henry scoring the only Goal of the Match.

At the end of the Match

What we all saw was a group of Black Frenchmen on the Pitch joined together celebrating THEIR Victory ( see photo below ). All the White French filling the Stadium were every bit as Ecstatic. There is NO ambiguity here had the USA been cultivating African American players all these years rather than mostly white kids from the suburbs of America, Team USA would do much better.

Let’s use Thierry Henry

as our Perfect Example.

We will quote liberally

from Wikipedia’s

profile

” Thierry Daniel Henry (born August 17, 1977 in Les Ulis, Essonne, Paris is a French football player and regarded as one of the top players in the world.

He currently plays as a striker for the French national team, and for the English club Arsenal, where he is that club’s all-time leading scorer in both league matches and all competitions.”

” Henry has been nominated twice for the FIFA World Player of the Year, both times finishing runner-up in 2003 and 2004. Also, he was named by Pele as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.”

” He has surpassed Ian Wright to take over as Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer with over 200 goals for the club. In 2006, Henry was the first player to score more than twenty goals in five consecutive seasons (2002 – 2006); winning the European Golden Boot in 2004 and then sharing it with Diego Forlan in 2005.”

” On 19 May 2006, despite months of speculation linking him with Spanish club Barcelona, he renewed his contract at Arsenal under a 4-year deal until 2010.”

Beyond Thierry Henry

In total 14 of 22 of the Field players for the French National Team in World Cup 2006 are Black. Again 14 of 22 field players. USA with a far far larger Black population had far far less Black players on the Team and on the Pitch. Never more than 3 Black players at any time for USA.

Team USA

on its 22 Member

Field Squad

5 of 22

Black players
