C'est vrai! Harry Roselmack will be first Black anchor on French TV

Harry Roselmack - France's first Black news anchor

I guess if you burn down the town they'll put a brown face on the tube. Seems French ministry of culture is getting the message that French culture needs to start, at least acting, multicultural. So, 32-year-old Harry Roselmack, a journalist from Martinique will get the role as France's first Black television news anchor this summer. According to a blurb in the New York Times, Roselmack will fill in for France's best known anchor, Parick Poivre d'Arvor, on the popular evening news while Mr. Poivre d'Arvor is on vacation. I guess this is only a trial run for Roselmack? Why not just give him a slot? You know, it's way late for this kind of first in France. But, I guess later is better than never...and hey, its the least they can do...particularly, if it will keep the Black kids in the ghettos from burning down the town again
