Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been asking myself the very same question upon reading this piece :)

Regarding France, there was this poll two years ago, when then not-candidate Emmanuel Macron called colonization "a crime against humanity". About 52% of French people agreed that "France should present official apologies for murders and exactions committed during the colonization."
51% agreed with Macron, that "colonization is a crime against humanity." There are interesting splits based on age and gender (60% women over 40% men on "crime against humanity.", for instance) and by political affiliation.
Complete results here.
