FRANCE – Developing education

Rihanna (right) met with French President Emmanuel Macron Wednesday at his Paris palace to ask him to contribute to her education fund for children in developing countries.

The Barbados-born pop singer spoke with Macron and his wife Brigitte about helping fund education for millions of children in developing countries who don’t have access to schooling in her role for the Clara Lionel Foundation, the nonprofit that she founded in 2012.

The meeting was reportedly set up after Rihanna tweeted at Macron last month in front of her 75 million followers asking if France will commit to the education fund.

She also tweeted out to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert and Mauricio Macri, the president of Argentina.

    Here we go yet again to our oppressors asking for handouts so that our black children can learn their white BS in order to function on their white stage. God help us. Blindness is a bit$%. Why the fu%^ don’t we get ourselves educated before making an a$$ of ourselves. Do you people not know that many African countries still paying France MILLIONS IN REPARATIONS FOR THE ABOLITION OF SLAVERY owing to their loss. Hence the current depressive situation that many of these African countries are facing today. Forget the celebrity rubbish and get some knowledge. GO LOOK IT UP.

      These AFRICAN states are paying France millions a year in reparations when it should be the other way around. Then we got some Jokers aka idiots that say these colonialist people do not owe us anything and here France continues to extort money from these poor people.

    I admire Rihanna and so should all right thinking people. I don’t see other entertainers doing the work she is doing to help people and especially children who so need good education to succeed in life. Barbados has a great ambassador may she succeed at all she is doing. Gods blessings on her and her work
