I myself love AF ! But on the longhaul flights ! And I think this is the difference. Their European flights are regular in terms of service and aircraft quality. And maybe if then there comes a "ethnical" issue on top......

maybe this feeling is due to the fact your friends and relatives look at crewmember.
And instead of racism, I would talk about cultural differences.
What I will see as a normal behavior, with my European eyes may be seen as indifferent , or even rude by other eyes.
And vice versa: during my last trip in India, in the restaurant, I had 5 or 6 waiters around me all the time. And if locally it is considered as good service, for me it was oppressive, especially when I asked them politely to let me some air, and they continued.
In addition to the cultural awareness, there may be some language issue (especially understand each other accent)
