I’m sorry, but I’m not the least bit shocked, amazed nor blind-sided by Britain’s Royal family and their deep, twisted racism, fears and phobias surrounding skin-color, class and power. Such a medieval attitude and gothic perspectives are confirming, not surprising.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah has proven to be a bombshell millions of Americans tuned in to watch. The Duchess of Sussex discussed her time as a member of the British monarchy. Markle revealed she considered taking her own life because her mental health took such a battering during her time in the UK, while she also said her husband was questioned about her son’s skin color.

I’d go a step urther and suggest the Royal family’s attitude is reflective of a culturally wide mentality which is long-standing and deep-rooted in the European perspective of humanity – from the rank ‘n file here in the States to “royalty” in the motherland. Apparently, obviously very little legitimate progress has been made when it comes to their belief in White Supremacy.

Progress… is it really “progress if a cannibal uses a knife n’ fork?”

Much of Europe seems to be exhibiting the same lack of growth, maturity, alas “progress:” there is a well-documented backlash occurring all across the continent. It seems the imperialistic colonization of the world comes with a price. There is a fallout, an aftermath – repercussions and consequences for pimping and exploiting the world’s population. Spanish, British, Germans wanted the riches, the free forced labor force and the resources they secured – but they don’t want Africans as neighbors, coworkers, their children’s classmates, nor God forbid, as in-laws.

Wow, golly gee, the Royal family isn’t much different than their brothers and sisters across the Atlantic – they have a shared sense of racial supremacy. Europeans around the world, spread to the four-corners of the globe, South Africa, Australia, Canada – all the outposts seem to harbor people which form a significant, growing, hostile segment of their population that simply refuse to see people of color as people, as human, as human as they are.

Putin’s Russia never even pretended to be a Caucasian people who embraced racial/cultural diversity and inclusion – instead they seem to be feeding a global rise in advocating and defending White supremacy. They are openly homophobic, racist and elitist. And might I add, within Trump’s America, Russia is the preferred friend and global ally as opposed to the United Nations.

They’d jubilantly take Vladdy Putin over Kamala Harris as the next President of the United States – the hate is that great. Trump’s America is 90% WASP, the sons and daughters of liberty, justice and freedom; nevertheless, they reject “Equality” and embrace White supremacy and domination via white nationalism.

I’ve attempted to make this point more than a few times in my writings over the last couple of decades – White culture, white people’s ways, thoughts, attitudes and viewpoints are in dire, desperate need of a long, long, l-o-n-g needed awakening, a reformation, a coming-to-Jesus moment, an epiphany, an enlightenment... which is only possible via an exorcism of the primitive ideals and beliefs they seem to embrace as a people.

Martin Luther King, Jr, stated in his From Strength to Love, “The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.” How very prophetic his words would be in a literal sense half a century later.

Progress… is it really “progress if a cannibal uses a knife n’ fork?”

This global pandemic has shone a spotlight on the harsh bitter truth, throughout the White world you will find the descendants of the conquered and long enslaved, and wherever you find them they are discriminated against and feel everything from marginalized to criminalize, to dehumanized by the people, their institutions and organizations.

Please note: I’m not lying or exaggerating – this is the cold, hard fact – they wanted your gold, oil and diamonds – but they don’t want you as a voting member of their society. As a Black man, I didn’t make the story about race or skin color; White folks have made it the determining element of one’s innate value and worth.

I strolled over to FOX News as this story broke all day Monday and all I can say is “wow.” This is how the interview was summarized: “viewers were surely dismayed by the sheer vitriol on display, the huge lack of respect for Queen Elizabeth II as the head of the royal family, and the appalling vindictiveness of Meghan’s approach. If this was meant to be a public relations coup for the Duchess, it backfired spectacularly. The interview was a petty exercise in mean-spiritedness and spite, without an ounce of grace or humility from the former actress. It was also poorly timed, with Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh recovering from surgery in the hospital at the age of 99 (he turns 100 in June).”

And the comments board really, really sounded like a never-ending conversation in the parking lot of a 1963 White Citizens Council meeting in Tupelo Mississippi. Seriously. I can only thank Donald J Trump for bringing words and life to this deeply rooted blind racism which grips White America. The contempt, the animosity, and hostility are, check it – not amazing nor shocking but rather confirming and validating. White America, White culture, white people’s ways, thoughts, attitudes, and viewpoints are in dire, desperate need of a 2:30 in the AM wake your you know what’s-up phone call, an exorcism of the primitive ideals and beliefs they seem to embrace as a people.
