Re: Credit Suisse, UK, France & Africa: a modern tale

Let's wait and see what he does before judging him on his ethnicity, accent or even stature.

IMHO the French did a pretty good job drilling French values and thinking into the educated elite of their former colonies, and in contrast to the former British colonies which have drifted onto their own paths post independence, the former French colonies (at least the sub-Saharan ones) remain extremely French to this day. So to all intents and purposes he may probably think and act like a Frenchman.
