Even in the civil service, we are victimised. We have to work twice as hard as white French people. That's the problem with France - institutional racism.
I don't approve of the violence but it's the only way of sounding the alarm. We demand equality of opportunity.
The police did nothing to stop those kids running 1,000 metres to their deaths at an electricity sub-station. If they want peace, we need justice. Respect must be mutual.
