about

Bleu Blanc Black means Blue White Black, and refers to a common way to refer to the French flag, except the last color should be Rouge (red), not black. In France (and Europe), people tend to believe they have no racism problem, because they somewhat made it disappear by banning the use of the word race. If language is now more accurate, unfortunately its intellectual twists have erased the colonial history that makes racism a reality for the many 1st, 2nd & 3rd generation French people of color, or Afropeans. In "cool" company, it is appropriate to replace the word "noir" by its English equivalent "black", likely using language to distance one's "history" from another's experience.

Since I've lost a lot of my early music production experiments, I decided to release some drafts such as this one.
