    PARIS (AP) -- Inspired by Barack Obama, the French first lady and other leading figures say it's high time for France to stamp out racism and shake up a white political and social elite that smacks of colonial times.

    A manifesto published Sunday - subtitled "Oui, nous pouvons!", the French translation of Obama's campaign slogan "Yes, we can!" - urges affirmative action-like policies and other steps to turn French ideals of equality into reality for millions of blacks, Arabs and other alienated minorities.

    So the cancer is spreading...how sad! Like Pat Buchanan said, the West is dying. I am hoping the rising powers of the East (China, India, etc) will learn from mistakes made by the West.
