Roughly translated from Russian, it should be something like - Dear blogger, your blogging style makes some black people very unhappy.

The French Commission for racial equality accuses the local film industry of racism.

The French film industry has been found guilty of racism for preventing black actors from dubbing white stars in Gallic versions of English-language movies.

An inquiry ruled that casting directors regularly excluded black applicants in the belief that they had a distinctive tone of voice unsuitable for dubbing white parts. The findings come amid claims that the failure to promote black stars in films and other media is contributing to a wider segregation in French society.

The commission established that while white actors are regularly dubbing black parts, this does not go the other way. The commission ordered the French Federation of Cinema, Audiovisual and Multimedia Industries and the Union of Dubbing Companies to engage in a vigorous anti-Racism self-re-education campaign. The white racism widely practiced in high quarters of the French society contrasts sharply with a touching devotion many black nations in Africa feel towards their white people, occasionally even treating them as an endangered species.
