By Amaechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy is at the centre of a bitter racism row after he questioned if it was acceptable to call people monkeys.
The 65-year-old conservative had initially caused outrage on the ‘Daily’ TV discussion programme when he said the word N***** should be allowed.
He was particularly upset when appearing on the show on Thursday that France had just stopped publishing the Agatha Christie novel Ten Little N*****s under its original title – 81-years after the British author wrote it.
The book is now called And Then There Were None in France decades after much of the rest of the world dropped the offensive term.
Speaking on the show Mr Sarkozy said: ‘This is the will of the elites who pinch their noses.’ He added that they are: ‘like monkeys who listen to no-one.’
The former president continued with his extreme views saying: ‘I no longer know if we have the right to say monkey. What do we say now? The ten little soldiers? This progress society?’
