French Socialist Francois Hollande will ask lawmakers to vote on a proposed removal of the word "race" from the French Constitution if he is elected president in May, the frontrunner said in a speech on Saturday.

The 57-year-old Hollande also praised the diversity of France's ethnic makeup, saying the country was "proud of its diversity", further distancing himself from incumbent rival Nicolas Sarkozy's tough talk on immigration and calls for clear labelling of halal meat.

"There is no room in the republic for race," Hollande told an event for France's overseas territories held in Paris. "I will ask parliament to remove the word 'race' from our constitution."

Hollande's widening lead in the polls has seen Sarkozy and other conservative politicians try to woo voters away from the far-right National Front party, drawing criticism from the left.

"France is proud of its diversity," Hollande added. "The France I love is able to let everyone live together hand-in-hand."

The idea of a "race"-free constitution is not new for Hollande, who backed a similar proposal put to the National Assembly in 2004, where it was defeated, according to Socialist deputy Victorin Lurel.

The first clause of the Constitution reads: "France is an indivisible, secular, democratic and social republic. It ensures equality before the law for all citizens regardless of origin, race or religion."

He also said:
"Diversity is movement. Diversity is life ...But not the diversity of races!".

Hollande is the mainstream Socialist candidate, now level in the polls with Sarkozy. Meanwhile, the even more extreme socialist candidate of the "Left Front", Jean-Luc Mélenchon, continued this socialist campaign of linguistic genocide against anything recognisably French:
The word "French" bothers me a bit because it gives an ethnic definition of the French nation. In my view what describes French nationality is citizenship.

It's all about replacing the European peoples who are the useful idiots of this immense genocide, while the European political elites being the executioners.

From these elites there is nothing but contempt for the Europeans and the French..

What will happen when the European peoples realize this?
