Whatever, triggered Felicia.
What I said was not racist at all.
The French have a LONG history of making substandard cars and that is exceedingly well documented. Thus, to encapsulate that mountain of evidence in words is not racist.
Definition of racism (because you obviously don't know it): "Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another."
On top of that, I am of the same race as the majority in France, so how would being racist against my own race make any logical sense?
My statement had NOTHING to do with stating a superiority (or inferiority) due to race.
If what I said is racist then the following are also racist statements:
"The Japanese make dependable cars."
"The Germans make highly engineered cars."
"The Americans make awesome muscle cars."
