BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : WHY THE FRENCH REPUBLIC WAS NOT RACIST AND MORE EQUAL THEN MOST TODAY:

GENERAL ALEXANDRE DUMAS  24TH MARCH 1762  TO  26TH FEBRUARY 1806


General Alexandre Dumas was the first Black General in French history and remain the highest ranking person of color in the European Army. He was the first person of color in the French military to become a Brigadier General, the first to become a Divisional General and the fist to become a General-in-Chief of a French Army. Dumas shared the status of the highest black officer in the Western World only with GeneralnToussaint Louverture who in May 1797 became the second Black General-In-Chief in the French Military until 1989 when the American Colin Powell became a four star General the closest United States equivalent of General of the Army, Dumas highest rank. Alexandre Dumas was of mixed race, the son of a French White Noble man and a Black Slave mother. He was born into slavery because of is mothers status, but also born into Nobility because of his fathers Noble status.

His father took Alexandre to France in 1776 and had him educated in France. He also help him entered the French Army , entering as a private at the age of 24years. Dumas rose by the age of 31years he commanded 53,000 troops as General-In-Chief  of the French Army of the Alps. Dumas played a pivotal role in the French Revolutionary wars. Dumas strategic victory in opening up the High pass of the Alps enabling the French to initiate their second Italian campaign against the Austrian Empire.


























I will take my Hat Off To The French Republic, The President, The French Government, The French People and The French Military for the fact that over 200 years ago the People of France had the Equality and  is Equality of mind to accept the a Black Person for Military Skills and Intelligence and a Human Being, rather than the color of his skin to have Promoted a Black Person to General-In-Chief of the French Army says a lot about the French People, while the American and most Western European were enslaving Black People at the time. Then the Nazi Army walk into Paris to take down his Full size Statue  to melt down for Guns. The Germany must do the right thing and Commission and pay for a new statue of General  Alexandre Dumas. I rest my Case Mrs Chancellor of Germany.
