Need to teach recent French and British colonial history

France in Algeria - leading to Muslims as legal residents in France.

The British Commonwealth - leading to Jamaicans, Indians, Pakistanis as citizens of UK.
---I remember the anger over this as more and more Commonwealth citizens settled in Britain and could not be legally kicked out....because they were/are citizens!

2. Algerian Muslims are separate and unequal.

Even when born in France, they are not treated as are the ethnically French.

3. After they killed off their own citizens they needed people to a variety of jobs

Start with the Windrush although quite a few West Indians also fought in WW2. My mother's brother joined the army -survived the war and then died in a motor cycle crash in London.
