Bob Dylan Charged With Making Racist Remarks In France

Bob Dylan Charged With Making Racist Remarks In France

Paris (AFP) - Bob Dylan is being asked to apologise for remarks he made in an interview that have ran afoul of French anti-racism laws.

The legendary American singer has been charged with inciting hatred by Paris prosecutors after comments made to Rolling Stone magazine last year sparked a complaint from the Council of Croats in France (CRICCF).

"If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood," Dylan was quoted as saying in the context of an answer about race relations in the United States.

Dylan, 72, was informed of the charges against him last month, while he was in Paris for three concerts -- a visit during which the French government also awarded him its prestigious Legion d'Honneur decoration.

It's pretty creepy how you can't

have a conversation about race in France. They think of themselves as so intellectual, yet they can't disagree without one of them going to jail? What's so scary about conversations?

Defend Liberty!

more msm falshood

dylan said ''croatians can sense serb blood'' not opposite as is in yahoo text. i've seen so many things like this in american msm media (my favorite was when amanpour was in bosnia during the war and she's on ''muslim victims'' funeral and you see orthodox croses with serbian names in background). they always say it's unintentional, but this happend so many times that i'm certain it's very, very intentional.

It's trully amazing

how people have implemented the term 'racism' in this country, when it was a term created by Bolshevik Revolution leader Leon Trotsky, a staunch protege of Karl Marx. I could see the pro-communist faction in this country trying to implement it, but the overwelming majority has always been against Communism. Trotsky aka Bronstein, created this term to use against the overwelming Christian population from making any statement, that communism was a Jewish creation. Watch this documentary proving as such. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABDHPEU8SAc

how is that racist?

I think France's CRICCF is just looking for attention and needs Dylan's name to get there.

Ironically, that makes zero sense

I'm sure their "senses" are just conditioned biases and hatred towards "that group of humans on that patch of dirt over there" like ALL OTHER RACISM. Illusions of Division amongst ONE Human Race.

However, I'm not sure how those remarks he made are themselves "Racist".

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

How come Dylan can't sense who he is a slave for?


You make no sense.

Bob Dylan is Jewish.

He's A Racist If You Don't Like Bob Dylan

What is this world coming too?

Dylan rules!
