Because their initial outburst was petit-bourgeois and mildly ‘reactionary’. Of course this made leftists and minorities weary to join and gave an opening to the media to portray this as an uprising from the right. However now that leftist currents dominate the movement we should hopefully see French minorities get involved.

Sounds like every so-called progressive movement.

Because France is in Europe.

From wikipedia:

As of 2004, French conservative think-tank Institut Montaigne estimated that there were 60 million (85%) white people of European origin

Old data, but it's the newest I could find at a glance, and frankly it's a silly question so the burden of showing there should be less Europeans in France is on you.

Unless you're saying that the protestors need to employ some affirmative action rules, which would also be silly.

You've completely misunderstood what is being said in this article, so much so that I'm half-convinced you're trolling. The article is saying neither of these things. Did you read it?
