Palace under pressure to respond to Harry and Meghan racism claims | Monarchy | The Guardian


This was a very explosive interview, but one that had to take place for it showed, yet again, how ‘The UK Monarchy’ is out of place in the 21st century for it really needs to escape its assumed safety of the 19th century. For other European Monarchies have changed and survived and the ball is now and has been for sometime in the Court of The Monarchy.

Will The Monarchy survive, well I do hope so and it is still not too late for them to fully embrace Harry and Meghan.

Unfortunately, Harry and Meghan will be viewed badly by many in the UK, as many UK racists will feel their views are being supported, especially if they are Monarchists as well. Then the UK Monarchists will be against them.

But they will be supported by anti-monarchists and also many ‘people of Colour’.

This is a great opportunity for racism to be tackled by the establishment in the UK and show racists that they will not be tolerated.

I wish Harry and Meghan well and their starting family.

‘I didn’t want to be alive any more’: Meghan and Harry describe racism and royal animosity in Oprah interview | Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex | The Guardian


A very explosive interview and some points which come as no surprise to myself.

The Racist comment for one, as I have believed for sometime that there was a racist element within ‘The Family’. In this I query, where are the ‘persons of colour’ within the employment of The Family, for I am not aware of one, let alone others.

I am also not surprised about the comment that Prince Charles stopped communicating with Harry.

That is just The Family, for I feel it would have been even worse within the area of what I call ‘the grey suits’ for, I feel, this area is much worse than The Family in how they treat persons who are classed as outsiders.

By The Family, not fully accepting, as I have said before, is a great opportunity lost, but not unexpected.

This interview is indeed a massive bombshell and one from which The Family, may never recover.

I am also not surprised, even before the revelations that Meghan had had ‘suicidal thoughts’, which she took the The Families HR Department, one which is not good, especially with regards to the alleged abuse to members of some of Harry and Meghan’s staff, where it appears the HR Department took no action.

Many Black Americans aren’t rushing to get the COVID-19 vaccine – a long history of medical abuse suggests why


There are many reasons why Black Americans are unjustly treated in America and health is just one of many areas, another major area being Law and Order.

Nobody should be abused in any way, especially due to racial origins, but especially in America there is a long history of racial abuse and in many instances the historical instances are still occurring. In fact, many white Americans, would if they could turn back the clocks and this has only been made worse from 4 years of the Trump administration.

Even under the Biden administration changes, if any will be hard to achieve and then there is 2024, the very real possibility that Trump could return.

But it is not just in America that there is mistrust and racism, for this can and does occur in many countries, the UK being one, but, I hope, to not the extent of it is in America. But what do I know, for I am not of Black origin and may not even notice what is occurring in front of me, left alone behind me.

Nobody should have to contend with racist abuse, in fact, any form of abuse, for it is abhorrent and we should all be doing what we can to ensure abuse is not abound.

I do hope, that the mistrust can be minimised and eventually even, not occur, but this will require all of us to be vigilant.

COVID-19 is not concerned who it affects and my real wish is that the vaccine mistrust is overcome, but all the misinformation on Social Media will need to be countered, for if it is not, then there will be no chance that the COVID mutations will ever be reduced. COVID-19 will be with us for the long-term.  The only effective counter is the vaccines, for the various restrictions can only go so far and that is assuming that we are all abiding by the restrictions, which we are not, but hopefully only a minority.

Colour is only skin-deep for underneath we are no different, so colour should be no reason to discriminate for we all have an equal right to life.

Charge dropped against white woman who called police on Black bird-watcher


This says a lot about American Justice, which appears to have one law for persons who are White and another for persons who are Black.

Not only does it emerge with white and black individuals encountering each other, but in many instances how the Forces of law and Order behave.

Granted we only see through the media those that the Media wish us to see, but there does appear to be many elements in the various American Societies who wish for the clocks to be turned back to before Slavery was abolished or was meant to.

If this had been in reverse how would it have proceeded, well, I believe that the charge would not have been dropped. In fact, I was surprised that a charge was even brought, especially against the white women, for the expected would have been an incorrect charge brought against the Black bird-watcher, so this has to be seen as some progress, but far from enough.

To be Black in America is far from good for those who are Black, especially when many of the Police forces can not be trusted.

‘Vintage white rage’: Why the riots were about the perceived loss of white power


The actions of supposed Trump supporters in Washington DC and their invasion of the US Capitol building and wanton destruction of areas within the building are a blight on Society.

These rioters or more correctly terrorists, feel they have lost or losing the right of white supremacy, but, in reality this assumed right should never have been there. In fact, supremacy of any racial element should never be allowed, for we all have a right to life and be respected in any country in which we reside. Colour, gender, religion, ethnicity and any other areas should not have a right to have power over others.

People have to learn to live together and that no one should have any supremacy over others.

The white settlers who populated what is now known as America, used their superior power to overcome the Native Americans and this again was not right, for the white settlers invaded any other country and did not respect the original inhabitants.

But this was at a time of Colonial power, when the Western Colonial powers used the superior fire power to invade and suppress the native in habitants of many countries, which they believed were inferior. But they were not inferior, but different and that should never be an excuse to discriminate against others.

With the forthcoming President Elect Joe Biden this is an opportunity for all Americans to show they can respect each other and be able to live together for the good of each other and America. In doing this they will set a good example to others in other counties of this World and by doing so, will show that America is Great, but not Great Again, for they were never Great only assumed Great due to the abuse of power they exerted on others.

The isolationism shown by Trump is and never was Great for America, but by showing respect for each other Great can be said.

Lets all embrace togetherness and do not look on the bad examples of the past on the way to live now. The past can never be changed, now and the future can be.

Trump pledges ‘orderly’ transition after riot and Biden win certification – CNNPolitics


Trump pledges ‘orderly transition’, but does Trump understand what an ‘orderly transition’ means, for all his actions, currently, appear to show he does not.

For Trump does not understand ‘Law and Order’, unless it is law and order inline with Trump’s views. For as we saw yesterday he inspired his supporters to riot and invade the US Capitol and enter both the Senate and Congress and demean their authority.

This is not what should be expected from a President of America and shows even more so that he is unfit to hold such office, therefore the 25th Amendment needs to be enacted, immediately, to counter any other demeaning or even worse actions from Trump.

Everyone of his supporters who entered the US Capitol should be arrested and charged with criminal damage and actions to cause injury and even death of authorised persons who were in the US Capitol legally.

I would also query the actions of the Police and other forces who were supposed to stop this mob of Trump supporters from entering the US Capitol, but instated, appeared to stand back and allow them unofficial entry.

This action certainly does not correspond with the actions taken against ‘Black Lives Matter’, (BLM) and other such protests.

The actions of the Police and other security forces all over America  also need to be investigated, as there appears to be vast differences in how these forces deal with protests that are for Trump and those that are against him, is there some aspect of less engagement against the former and more intense engagement with the latter. This also appears to be the case in dealing with white and non-white persons, with the latter been dealt with more aggressively than the former.

Yesterday the Trump supporters and even Trump, acted as terrorists and they, all should be dealt with accordingly.

The lack of equality within America is there for all to see, for it appears to be the ‘Land of the Free’ depending on racial factors, instead for all.

The Human Rights for many in America appear to be in question.
