Did you see the article published in The Grio today, about their “concern” over the idea that a mixed race woman of African American decent is marrying into the royal family and people FORGETTING about England’s legacy of slavery. Oh…really??
Here’s what they said…
The British royals may be set to welcome a Black member into their family, but that doesn’t mean they’re off the hook for hundreds of years of colonizing and enslaving Africans and dark-skinned people around the globe, all while amassing a ton of wealth in the process.
Sorry to be the one to throw cold water on the recent announcement of Prince Harryand Meghan Markle‘s engagement, but somebody has to do it.
Hmmm…let’s see what else…
The British royal family presided over the exploitation of untold millions of people in Africa, India and around the world. Britain’s national wealth, and the riches of the royal family were built off the backs of slaves, making the Industrial Revolution possible.
Oh wow! That’s TERRIBLE!! They really, really HATE slavery. And-and-and-and this organization is being very specific about reminding black people that those white English folks are white supremacists too, and probably Meaghan is a bed wench. That is what they like to call us black or mixed race women with African ancestry when we don’t fall in line, now isn’t it?
Do you notice that when a black man marries a white woman, nobody is rushing in to do DNA tests and ancestry forensics to see if that woman is the decedents of slaves? That’s so weird…
I’d rather them STOP trying to remind us of ancient history and focus MORE on the slave trade that is happening RIGHT NOW in Libya. They’ve written a few articles, but can we please get some more, maybe organize and mobilize your vast audience to march on Washington to free our black brothers and sister? Maybe ask Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to pitch in our something?
Ladies, don’t be so gullible. See the game that’s being played on you.
