Meghan Markle saga exposes the extent of racism in the world

    Opinion by Trevor Makonyonga

    The Oprah Winfrey interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has opened a can of worms which has sparked serious debates amongst the people.

    Meghan Markle made claims insinuating that she was treated unfairly because of her race and that her son Archie, was not given a title after the royal family showed interest in the shade of the colour of his skin.

    In the interview, the Duchess said, I thought, ‘Can you just tell them the truth? Can you say to the world you’re not giving him a title and we want to keep him safe, and that if he’s not a prince, then it’s not part of the tradition? Just tell people and then they’ll understand,’ but they wouldn’t do that.”

    Meghan’s openness received a bashing from television host, Piers Morgan, who sarcastically said that the actress should win an Oscar for her performance on the interview.

    Morgan said that the interview was a “a two-hour trash-a-thon of our royal family” but in all honesty in his ranting he might not have realised how racist he was being.

    Piers Morgan in a bid to be a goodie good for the royal family does not really realise what his comments mean to Africans who have faced deep racism over the years perpetrated by systems laid down by the same royal family he is sanctifying.

    The notion of occupying Cape to Cairo came with some serious abuses of the black people natives in the continent and what Meghan Markle has simply done is to confront what has been concealed for a long time in the public domain.

    Blaming her for saying out her experiences would be not only hypocrisy but also supportive of the racial separation that the world has suffered from over the years.

    There are two sides of the coin on this issue and unfortunately, both of them have to be extreme.

    On the one end there is Piers Morgan’s school of thought and on the other end, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu what normal progressive people think.

    Confronting Morgan on his Good Morning Britain show, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu said, “The royal family is an institution rooted in colonialism, white supremacy, and racism. The legacy is right there. So you’re now surprised that a comment would have been made by several members of the royal family about how dark Archie’s skin is.

     “You’re more outraged that Harry and Meghan had the audacity to speak their truth than at the actual outrage of racism.”

    To further support this normal and sensible end which seems to agree that Meghan experienced racism, (well, as most black people do in the world), is Morgan’s workmate and weatherman Alex Beresford. 

    Beresford called out Morgan’s disgusting comments calling it “absolutely diabolical behaviour” before Morgan stormed of from his on show.

    Alex said, “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme. I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off.”

    “Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has, but yet you continue to trash her,” Alex added.

    This is when Piers stood up shouting, “Okay, I’m done with this… I can’t do this” as he left the room.

    Obviously appalled Alex said, “Absolutely diabolical behaviour, I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen.”

    What Markle has simply done is two expose the divide that has already existed in the world.

    Racism is not just based on the words people say to each other but is mostly based on how people act around each other.

    Of course the royal family has a tradition and a solid culture that has to be followed and that culture has racism implanted in it.

    This is the truth no one is prepared for. From the onset Meghan’s marriage to Harry was described in the media as the first of a kind and the biggest first was based on the race of Markle.

    The race issue also brought in trashing of the beautiful Duchess’s based on previous relationships and it was always made to seem as if she had brought in a curse to Buckingham Palace.

    Harry said, “There were some real obvious signs before we even got married that this was going to be really hard.”

    It is, sadly, an open secret that racism exists in all institutions, even Buckingham Palace is not immune to it.
