France is different.

France in a European country.
Europe is the white homeland; all European countries are predominantly white.
France was 99% white before about 1960 and is still about 85% white.
For a European country to have a mostly black team looks funny to me. Sorry if you find that offensive. I think it looks funny and weird.

Hakeem and Ewing did immigrate here. Kyrie Irving did not. His father was playing professionally overseas when he was born.

Also, we are not talking about the USA Dream Team, but of the one that was referenced by TheMan. I explained to him that he was using that team in the incorrect context. Not sure what you're going on about.

Why would I find it offensive? You're just wrong, yet act surprised by something that is quite common.

More than half of the black population are third generation plus, so again, wrong. All that with a nearly identical % of black people as America.
