The Licra denounced the “unconscious declaration” of the singer Camélia Jordana, who estimated Friday January 15 in an interview that “white men are, in the collective unconscious, responsible for all the evils of the earth”.
Asked by the Obs on the songs of her new album (“easy / fragile”, released January 29), Camelia Jordana explained her vision of feminism. “All of these songs say that if i was a man i would ask forgiveness , I would question the fears, and I would take the time to question myself, she said. Because white men are, in the collective unconscious, responsible for all the evils of the earth. ”
An “unconscious statement”
In a tweet, the International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism (Licra) denounced an “unconscious statement” by the singer.
Camélia Jordana had already caused a controversy in May, by speaking out on police violence. “I’m talking about the men and women who go to work every morning in the suburbs and who are massacred for no other reason than their skin color , it’s a fact, “she said in the program” We are not lying “on France 2.
“There are thousands of people who don’t feel safe around a cop, and I’m one of them. Today I have relaxed hair, when I have curly hair I don’t feel safe in front of a cop in France. Really. Really, “she added.
