A law professor railed against the “whiteness” of French food during a talk last month, The College Fix reports.

Mathilde Cohen of the University of Connecticut School of Law told a seminar organized by the elite Sciences Po and the University of Nanterre outside Paris that “French eating habits reinforced the ‘dominance’ of white people over ethnic minorities.”

In a clip posted on social media, she said, “the use of food to reinforce whiteness as a dominant racial identity.”

Pivoting to her legal expertise, Cohen pointed to “white, Christian norms” and “whiteness” embedded in the French laws.

“The French meal is often presented as the national ritual to which every citizen can participate equally. But French food ways are shaped by white middle- and upper-class norms … and the boundaries of whiteness are policed through daily food encounters,” she added.

French journalist David Abiker mocked the college professor on “Radio Classique,” saying French citizens should take a knee in their kitchens and “beat themselves with their whisks.”
